Former Middle East TV Reporter/Author Sounds Off On Cowardly Attack On Ugandan World Cup Fans
Terrorism Expert/Author G. Scott McGregor Responds to Cowardly Attack on Ugandan World Cup Soccer Fans.
- Baltimore, MD (1888PressRelease) July 13, 2010 - At least 74 people died in the Ugandan capital, Kampala, in two bomb attacks on Sunday suspected to have been carried out by Somali insurgents linked to al-Qaeda, Ugandan security officials said. The blasts occurred at two bars where crowds were watching the World Cup soccer final, according to Fred Opolot, director of the Uganda Media Center. The first blast went off at the Ethiopian Village Restaurant in the south of Kampala at 10:25 p.m. local time and the second followed at the Kyadondo Rugby club at 11:15 p.m., he said.
"The intent is to instill fear, says G. Scott McGregor, a former international correspondent of Middle East Television(METV) and the Author of "Eyewitness To Evil." The seeds for this kind of activity were planted decades ago by radical Islamists who've brainwashed their young with hatred for Americans and peace loving people everywhere. The evil they've sowed is unfortunately now flourishing," says McGregor. He adds, " We must use our might and wit to weed out those who seek to destroy us."
Several years ago a unique reporting opportunity in the Middle East brought McGregor face to face with jihadists in training. His recently published book, "Eyewitness To Evil," asserts that radical Islam launched a battle plan to disable the United States more than twenty years ago as part of a 1400 year- old strategy for world domination.
McGregor, who recently helped organize an anti-terrorism conference in the Washington, DC. area, says the Uganda attack was a cowardly act on innocent World Cup Soccer fans. "My heart and prayers go out to all the victims but we cannot give into fear. We must remain vigilant against our enemies. Stay alert when traveling and always report any suspicious activity or people you witness. If you see something, say something," McGregor adds.
McGregor recently discussed how Americans can stay vigilant against terrorists during a guest appearance on "The Power," on XM Satellite Radio, Channel 169 and "On With Leon," on Sirius Satellite Radio.
