French media have identified the driver in the lorry attack on a Bastille Day crowd in Nice as a 31-year-old French-Tunisian man named Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel, a Muslim. He had firearms and grenades in the truck with him as he mowed down innocents including 10 children, some in buggies.
The truck driver, who was known to police, was said to have shouted ‘Allahu Akbar’ – God is great in Arabic – before being killed in a clear suicide mission. Pro-ISIS groups have been celebrating the attack, orchestrated to coincide with France’s most important national holiday, The Daily Mail reported.
CBS News radio reported he was simply a local con man, however, this is a big win for jihadis no matter what the case.
The Inspire magazine has promoted using trucks to mow down Westerners.
We are engaged in a World War. It is a new type of global war against Western civilization but our president won’t even say the words “radical Islamic terrorism”, words which have been expunged from all Department of Homeland Security manuals.
This president didn’t once meet with his director of Defense Intelligence (DIA), Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, NOT ONCE, but he or his minions met with CAIR, the Council on American-Islamic relations, a terror-tied organization, in the White House 312 times according to one report and met with Congress 325 times. Obama has met with race hustler Al Sharpton over a 100 times and he meets with domestic hate group leaders of Black Lives Matter periodically.
A year-long investigation by theInvestigative Project on Terrorism (IPT) has found that scores of known radical Islamists made hundreds of visits to the Obama White House, meeting with top administration officials.
A horde of White House officials and agencies met with CAIR hundreds of times. There is an open door policy.
“There is hundreds of examples of departments and agencies that meet with CAIR on a range of issues,” The Daily Caller reported.
CAIR is “the group with the worst record of deception and the deepest ties to terrorists,” said Steven Emerson, the director of the Investigative Project on Terrorism, which tracks the public activities of Islamist lobbying groups.
“The White House is so clueless and/or compromised” when dealing with the brotherhood, said Robert Spencer, the author of several books about Islam and jihad. CAIR, he said, is “the political front of a radically repressive, Jew-hating, woman-hating organization,” according to a report by The Daily Caller.
A classified State Department memo released in June revealed that Muslim Brotherhood members are regularly given VIP treatment at airports, not being subject to the TSA’s unconstitutional searches. No body scanners, no invasive searches, no Muslim Brotherhood members’ children having TSA agents stick their hands down their pants. Their treatment has been likened to that given to Saudi royalty.
Yet Egypt, the UAE, and other Middle Eastern nations have warned that the Muslim Brotherhood is a terrorist organization.
It is the granddaddy of all terrorist organizations and handles PR, but does not engage in violence itself.
Hillary has fully supported Obama’s approach, praised his success, and promised to continue this “no strategy” approach.
Please listen to former DIA director Flynn:
ISIS exists because of Hillary’s and Obama’s horrendous policies. When there simply caravans of ISIS openly traveling through the desert, neither would advocate blowing them away. It might hurt the environment and perhaps the drivers weren’t ISIS, according to US spokesmen and their twisted reasoning at the time.
We can defeat them but instead we are letting them destroy lives. We don’t even have a plan and the administration boasts of that. The longer this goes on, the harder it will be to defeat them.
The latest is their Caliphate has been shrunk so they are just desperate. It’s nonsense. They are ready to expand and take up shop elsewhere, with or without a Calipate.
Hit them where they live in Raqqa and Mosul and end the worst of this. I say this as an anti-war advocate. This is s just war.
Hillary is a fool who destroyed Libya which is now a base of operations for ISIS and other terrorists such as al Qaeda and even the Taliban. The Taliban now control more land in Afghanistan than they did before the war thanks to our policies.
Our president said he “condemned this attack in the strongest terms”. Those are the words of a leader?
Hillary was on Bill O’Reilly’s show by phone and talked of “diplomacy.” Neither gets it.
They can slaughter any of us anytime, anywhere so what does this administration do? The speed up the immigration of 10,000 Syrian refugees who cannot be vetted and will not be monitored – monitoring is not allowed either. Hillary has called for the numbers to be upped to 65,000 though she likes to lie and say it’s being misrepresented. The videos of what she said are everywhere and even Politifact disagrees with her.
Donald Trump said he will ask Congress for a declaration of war against ISIS and he will
France today declared three days of national mourning after the truck attack – its third major terror attack in 18 months – and President Francois Hollande today pledged to ‘hit’ ISIS in Syria and Iraq ‘even harder’ after the devastating attack. He said many of the dead and wounded are children, very young children.
