BBC host Katty Kay, responding to Monday night's suicide bombing in Manchester Arena after an Ariana Grande concert, told viewers Tuesday that Europeans are going to have to "get used" to terror attacks in their backyards.
Leaders like President Trump and British Prime Minister Theresa May are rejecting that message. They both offered strong statements in response to ISIS' barbaric attack, May condemning the terrorists' "cowardice" and Trump calling them "evil losers," both pledging to seek justice.
Accepting terrorism as the norm is not acceptable. We must fight back and defend our homeland. The "Mother of All Bombs," which killed 94 ISIS fighters, is an example of how the Trump administration has refused to sit idly by and let terror reign worldwide.
The Islamic State-authored attack in Manchester killed 22 people, many of whom were younger than 16 years old, and injured 59 others.
