The mayor of Nice, Christian Estrosi, said the man had said "Allahu Akbar" several times while he was being arrested and handcuffed by police.


I guess we'll never know what his motivation was.

Ok France, serious question for you...

How the fark did you end up with the lion's share of nutjob radicalized Muslim extremists?

Every religion has a certain percentage (although the US seemsto be culivating nutjob christians), but you are way over the top compared to the averages.

Like much of  Europe the policy is to dump them somewhere and forget. Let millions of them into the country because... dunno why, I guess it looks good on social media? I guess it's good if you want to weaken the middle and lower classes, too.
Meh, Western civilization made its choice and Islam will conquer it eventually, but at least I'll be dead by then.

While I hesitate to bring up the U.S. as a role model globally, it really does do a far better job than France of truly integrating Muslim immigrants into the mainstreams. American Muslims are among the most progressive in the world and even with a provocative President
like Trump, there hasn't been a major Islamist incident in the U.S.  Granted, France does have a larger percentage of Muslims but they are isolated in its crappiest neighborhoods and France has a much more in-your-face attitude to secularism over religion than the U.S.

Muslim fundamentalist are fascists. They demand unquestionable obedience and respect. Nazis and muslim fundamentalists are both anti democratic scum who would have us all live in chains with a muzzle for nicer aesthetics.

I honestly don't know why this is even news - I mean back before covid when apparently we cared if people died, I'd have thought this was a tragedy, but this many people have been dying from covid every few minutes and there are a good proportion of the population that won't even wear a piece of cloth over their face to prevent it.

If they don't care about hundreds a day dying, why do they care about a mere 3 dying to terrorists?

Shooting to wound isn't really a thing unless you're Keanu Reeves in Speed. They probably just missed center mass.

I'm sure a Local Islamist will be along shortly to give a thorough explanation/apologia about how those churchgoers were really just asking for a beheading because a teacher hundreds of miles away showed his class a picture.

The US is not without its incidents and problems, but the integration here is far better than in much of Europe. Muslims here are often quite successful, are often civically engaged, don't face a government that is hostile to outward displays of religion as there is in France.

Even though many farkers consider the US a third world country, nearly all US Muslims are extremely happy to be here even with its faults.

I meant to say since Trump's Presidency.  There have been some in the past certainly but right wing terrorism has become more prevalent in recent years.

They're making up for being 2nd to Germany.

Some of the 9/11 terrorists lived in Hamburg.

Or maybe they did, but it wasn't immediately fatal and he received adequate medical care.

Handguns (which the police likely shot him with) actually aren't all that efficient at killing people.  First of all, they are relatively hard to aim, and thus it's harder to hit accurately with them, especially under stress.   Secondly, they have less available energy to cause tissue damage than the typical rifle or shotgun.

Where do you get the idea that they're "progressive" - because a couple Congresscritters are far-left?

Let me give you a hint: they're not progressive. For example, Many mosques don't let women in.

But keep carrying water for the religion of peace. They will thank you because demographics (and violence) is destiny.
 
2020-10-29 9:09:56 AM  
Let's see...

To bring this tread into harmony with the last few on similar subjects, I guess I should get in before the usual suspects, who suggest that this should function as yet more object lessons on: "If you don't want your citizens executed for blasphemy, do not blaspheme the beloved Prophet (pbuh) of nearly half of the entire world!"

Because, after all, criticising Islamic Fanaticism is slandering the Religion of Peace® as a whole, and criticising Islam is racist...

So...

(cues up that show tune from Chicago: "They had it comin'! They had it comin'!"

(blah blah blah)

Can't argue with success, and looks like Europe being limp-wristed just emboldens them.

You literally need to shut down the mosques preaching the hate, deport the people perpetrating it, and if you want to follow some Sharia - you punish the family members too like Kadyrov has done in Chechnya.

So, you got multiple waves, including the wave of "syrian" "refugees" who turned out to not be syrian and to not be refugees, recently brought in by the incredibly boneheaded Merkel and forcing that down the throat of every other EU country.

But it goes back further than that to France's colonial history.  France was stupid.

France copied England's model.  England had a model where they could claim they were helping the colonized people because they were making them all crown citizens, and those people could emigrate to England if they wanted to.  England, however, colonized countries that were extremely far away so that there was no way a poor person from the colonies would ever be able to afford to get to England.

France colonized countries right across the mediterranean in muslim Africa and called the people its citizens.  These people could easily get to France because it was cheap and close.
