Not seeing this discussed a lot; but this seems like a big deal.
I get the sense that there will be no Winter Olympics In Russia !
I think they are going to have to cancel the Olympics
The Russians are serious people. After the Olympics they will deal with the Saudi motivators and financiers of these jihadists in a definitive manner. This politically correct nonsense that the Wahhabi operating openly and financed by the Saudis can’t be touched will come to an abrupt end.
” after converting to Islam” They actually said it. Shocking for a UK paper.
Probably not related, but:

“...it was stuffed with metal filings. “
Metal FILINGS? Metal dust? Finely powdered metal is sometimes used to augment an explosive, but I have a feeling that what they are trying to describe is steel scrap from a stamping machine or possibly lathe turnings. The individual particles need to be bigger than “filings” for them to act as shrapnel.
I’m old enough to remember the 1972 Olympics
I pray this one ends better.
There is a violent ideology in the world that is responsible for almost all of the violence in the world. It is so bad, that in a sane country anyone who belongs to it would be expelled or jailed.
Get ready for the first all gay all the time olympics.
