The attempted suicide bomber who detonated an explosive device at a busy New York Port Authority bus terminal early Monday morning was reportedly inspired by ISIS.
This along with other details including that he is from Bangladesh have already made the case that this is an incidence of radical Islamic terrorism.
The left continues to make excuses that such a thing does not exist, yet Europe has been plagued by adherents of ISIS killing people and they are looking to strike right here in America and want to do so during the holiday season.

Via the New York Post “Suicide bomber strikes New York City at rush hour”:
An ISIS-inspired suicide bomber set off a homemade explosive device at the Port Authority Bus Terminal subway station Monday morning, law enforcement sources said.
The man — a 27-year-old who lived in Brooklyn and is possibly of Bangladeshi origin — had wires attached to him and a 5-inch metal pipe bomb and battery pack strapped to his midsection as he walked through the Manhattan transit hub, sources said.
Former NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” that the man was inspired by ISIS and possibly born in Bangladesh.
Bratton, who said the man had been living in the US for seven years, “was supposedly setting the device off in the name of ISIS.”
“So, definitely a terrorist attack, definitely intended,” Bratton said.
The man, who suffered the most serious injuries, was taken to Bellevue Hospital.
Two others suffered minor injuries, police said.
Investigators briefly spoke to the alleged bomber, who told them he made the explosive device at the electrical company where he works.
Fortunately for New Yorkers this attack was botched but a heightened state of alert is necessary in the event that it was a dry run.
It’s only a matter of time until this gets blamed on President Trump once the Democrats and their media magpies accuse him of unnecessarily pissing off Muslims with the announcement that Jerusalem would be recognized as Israel’s capital.
Morning Joe and moist Mika will probably the be the first to do it too.
