Following the capture of Salah Abdeslam, the main fugitive in the Paris attacks, ISIS claimed responsibility for bombs that exploded at Zaventem airport and Maelbeek metro, near the European Union’s headquarters in Brussels, Belgium.
The Guardian reported that officials were seeking to identify three men in connection with the bombing, specifically the man wearing a hat in the below Twitter photo.

One witness claimed to have heard shouting in Arabic, followed by gun shots just before the bombs exploded in the airport departure lounge. Two of the men in the picture above were suspected by police to be suicide bombers.
Also, it became clear that the Islamic State acted in retaliation for Abdeslam’s arrest. ISIS issued a statement identifying Belgium as “a country participating in the international coalition against the Islamic State.”

Yet, what does GOP candidate Sen. Ted Cruz do? He has the audacity to blame Donald Trump for the Brussels attacks.
Perhaps Cruz’s lowest blow yet directed towards Trump, even while European leaders continue to endorse Trump, recognizing he understands Islam as a national security threat. Unlike Cruz, they recognize that there’s nothing “radical” about Islam. The explosions are just more of what’s to come as a result of the Islamic Invasion of Europe.
