I guess this was intentional.

Some times these suicide bombers blew themselves up by accident...

Not surprising....ISIS and their supporter nations are bent on establishing the Caliphate while they have the freedom to move about unhindered......either by directly involved in conflict or creating it between nation states.

It’s a “GO” for terrorists at this time ....wouldn’t be surprised if we get hit before long. Be it a rogue nutcase or otherwise.

Condolences for those who were killed/injured.

Sometimes these bombers blew themselves up at the wrong place/wrong time.

Sounds like he/she wanted to blew up the hotel...

Perhaps he felt guilty because he arrived late at the Boston airport and missed his flight on 9/11/2001.

Saudis are our friends, you know?

“Just over a week ago, authorities in the country announced that they were looking for ISIS cells that had penetrated into Lebanon and were planning to carry out a series of suicide attacks.

On Friday, security forces raided another hotel and arrested 17 men believed to be ISIS members, but didn’t find any explosives, Lebanese media reported.”

He may have been staying at the hotel, heard the raid and BOOM.

Lebanon has a Shiite majority, it’s run by Hezzbulah (radical Shiites), Hezzbulah is a proxy of Iran (Shiite terrorist state) and Shiites are fighting (freelancing) for Assad (Alewite/Shiite sect) in Syria.

ISIS and Al-Obama are Sunni.

Has anyone else noticed that the media (AP in particular) is starting to reference Maliki as “Al-Maliki”. A little bit of islamophobia is suddenly appropriate when it fits the narrative (Maliki = bad). That’s why I refer to Obama as Al-Obama...it’s the poor influence of Associated Press.

Beirut used to be known as the “Paris of the Middle East” because of its beautiful buildings and cultivated lifestyle.

Amazing what Islam can do to destroy absolutely anything in its way.

Boy, we’ve got the terrorist on the run in the Mideast...

Meanwhile Americans here at home are being spied on, targeted by the IRS, Muslims are pouring in and our borders resemble a lawless Boston marathon of millions entering illegally...

An endless conga-line of deceit and decline...

and today a judge ruled that the “no fly list” is unconstitutional because international flight is part of a sacred right! I think that constitutional right to flight is in a penumbra under Article XIX, Sec 3, clause 2, no? Gotta be something like that.

The Lebanese authorities seem to have moved quickly after this act of terror .....and they appear to be on top of as much protection from infiltrators as is humanly possible in Beirut.....with toughness and no screwing around.

By contrast, our southern border is wide open to anyone with homocidal or suicidal intentions...and the only thing 98 lb. weakling Obama is consistently and intently on top of is 18 mounds of grass surrounding 18 little cups on a golf course.

If anything, the Saudi’s should be scared spitless of Iran. Iran gets a bomb, Israel may be first on the list but Saudi Arabia isn’t far behind. Israel may be able to shoot a missile out of the sky. The Saudis? Not so much.
