Others tweeted about "good tidings that keep coming" from New York, and one user affiliated with al-Qaeda in Syria tweeted: "Oh God go against America, the head of infidels. Oh God, count them and kill them one by one, and do not spare anyone of them."

The hashtag #ExplosionManhattanNewYork was popular among other Arab users, mostly from Saudi Arabia, who don't seem to be affiliated with terror groups but still criticized America, Vocativ found. One user said "ISIS is an American product, their goods come back to them." Another wrote: "This is all your doing Mister Obama, you are the reason for the spread of ISIS in the region. I wish you would listen to the words of King Abdallah and his warning for the Arabs from ISIS."

Others raised concerns, tweeted that the explosion was "another pretext for America to intervene in another country" and that 'the dog Trump will blame the Muslims in order to win the elections, an expected scenario".

Translation: A Wahabi Daesh dog is behind #ExplosionManhattanNewYork for sure. The head of the terror is the Saudi Kingdom."
