WATCH: MUSLIM terrorist ATTACK and hostage situation in Bangladesh

Victor LaszloRebel Commentator

This is a breaking story. Not all the facts are available in English yet.

In the video above, you can clearly hear: "Counter-terrorism unit" and "Islam" at around the 12-second mark.

Here is an RT article with some explanation of what is taking place.

The attack was carried out by a group of at least nine people, according to local media. They entered the restaurant at around 9:20pm local time and reportedly opened fire and set off explosions. A kitchen worker who managed to escape the building said the attackers chanted “Allahu Akbar.”

“They blasted several crude bombs, causing wide-scale panic among everyone. I managed to flee during this confusion,” he said, according to Hindustan Times.

One of the attackers was armed with a sword, the others carried guns, an employee of a nearby café told RT. He estimated the number of hostages as at least 30.

Below, US State Department presser on the situation.

BBC report here:

Gunmen have stormed a popular cafe in the diplomatic area of the Bangladeshi capital, Dhaka, taking hostages, officials say.

Unconfirmed reports say foreigners are among those being held in the city's Gulshan district.

A gun battle between the attackers and police wounded three people, including two officers.

Police and security forces have sealed off the area and are trying to negotiate the hostages's release.


It is not clear who the attackers are, although a police officer told the BBC that Islamic militants were suspected.

Media reports quoted witnesses as saying that "Allahu Akbar", meaning "God is greatest", was heard as the attack took place.

More as it comes in.

The Daily Mail offers some clarity:

Come on Rebel. You are starting to slow down. Yes I know you have a small work force and you are all great. But the CBC Has come out with the latest news of these attacks. The Bangladesh police believe the leader of the ISIS terrorist group is from Windsor Ontario. Now if this 100% true, there can’t be any arguments from the left or extreme left, that there isn’t an terrorist cell in the beautiful country of ours.

Rebel do some serious fact checking for us loyal followers. I can’t believe the CBC beat you on this story.

Plus I was surfing the net today as my vehicle broke down and I am waiting for repairs. You should also check out (Montreal Simon). This guy is quite the tool. The man really has a hatred for the rebel and its followers. Plus any conservative that is in this country.

I’m sure it was some impoverished youth, protesting economic hardship due to global warming. Isn’t that all that ISIS is?

And somehow Obama will say once again it’s not Islamic terrorism.

Obama would never want to offend his beloved Muslim brothers. Just look at how he sat on his hands while ISIS took over the middle east and Iran built up their nuclear program. He has destroyed our foreign policy. He has ruined our country.

Stateside, Obama has crippled our economy. Everybody I know is either out of work or under-employed. And our expenses keep rising. My health insurance is now up to $400/month. Before the government touched it, it was $250/month! My auto insurance, which the government has yet to ruin, is thankfully only $24/month (from Insurance Panda). Please, Obama! Don’t try to socialize ANYTHING ELSE!

Hey – Barry – When are you gonna tell it like it is? That these are muslim extremists?

Charles Moulton they usually steer clear of these stories so they can think it never happened.
I wonder when Jay Kelly will be along to tell us this is a lie, those damn Danish must be behind it.

As usual, the reprehensible Islamedia has buried this latest Islamist terrorist atrocity, if they printed it at all. Both taxpayer-funded Caliphate Brainwashing Circus and the Star and Crescent tucked the story away at the bottom of their front pages, with not a peep about Islamists or terrorism – instead calling it an “attack” by “gunmen”. Meanwhile the main headline is a celebration of Islamic invaders’ “first Canada Day” along with the usual Trudumb selfies with cute brown-skinned kiddies, not a white in sight, touting divershitty (ad nauseum).

Free-dumb of the Press at its finest.

So where are all the trolls on this site.

Yea! The religion of peace. What a fucking joke.

Time to level the Middle East and divide it to all the world nations that are still standing.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said on Twitter that Canada “strongly condemns tonight’s deadly attack in --insert country or city———,” adding that his thoughts are with the victims as “we stand with our allies against terrorism.”

Canada strongly condemns --insert today or tonight———deadly attack in Turkey. My thoughts are with the victims as we stand with our allies against terrorism.

— Justin Trudeau (@justintrudeau) -—insert date——-

A spokesperson at Global Affairs Canada said Canadian officials based in -—insert city or country———- were closely monitoring the situation and working to determine if any Canadian citizens had been affected.

Foreign Affairs Minister Stephane Dion also issued a statement strongly condemning what he called an “appalling” attack.

Dion offered condolences to the family and friends of the victims and wished a speedy recovery to the wounded.

“We stand with the -—insert nationality——people as they deal with this most recent and appalling terror attack,” Dion said. “We reaffirm our commitment to work tirelessly in the fight against terrorism.”

Trudeau should just leave this comment open on the internet. We can fill in the blanks as easily as our glorious Prime Minister.

Again?……….Why did we pull out the jets?
Would this be Islam fanatics?
