Nice France attack CNN

Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel killed 84 people this week in Nice, France, when he used a giant truck to mow down crowds during Bastille Day celebrations. Besides the multiple media outlets that called the attack a “truck crash” well after it was determined to be an act of terror, another story perfectly highlighted how woefully equipped western “thought leaders” are for dealing with the threat.

Heat Street was the first to report Friday morning that government officials in France tried to suppress knowledge of beheadings and torture that took place during the November 13, 2015, Islamic terror attacks in Paris.

The website reported:

“A French government committee has heard testimony, suppressed by the French government at the time and not published online until this week, that the killers in the Bataclan appear to have tortured their victims on the second floor of the club.

The chief police witness in Parliament testified that on the night of the attacks, an investigating officer, tears streaming down his face, rushed out of the Bataclan and vomited in front of him just after seeing the disfigured bodies.

The 14-hour testimony about the November attacks took place March 21st.

According to this testimony, Wahhabist killers reportedly gouged out eyes, castrated victims, and shoved their testicles in their mouths. They may also have disemboweled some poor souls. Women were reportedly stabbed in the genitals – and the torture was, victims told police, filmed for Daesh or Islamic State propaganda. For that reason, medics did not release the bodies of torture victims to the families, investigators said.”

The most stunning exchange came when a French prosecutor implied that the injuries a grieving father was told about during his son’s autopsy (i.e., the man’s testicles where shoved in his mouth) may have been cause by shrapnel.

Prosecutor: I specify, for the sake of clarity: some of the bodies found at the Bataclan were extremely mutilated by the explosions and weapons, to the point that it was sometimes difficult to reconstruct the dismembered bodies. In other words, injuries described this father may also have been caused by automatic weapons, by explosions or projections of nails and bolts that have resulted.

Q. Would those have put a man’s balls in in his own mouth?

Prosecutor: I do not have that information.

The western world can not successfully deal with Islamic terrorism until it stops denying reality:

  • Jan 7, 2015: Charlie Hebdo attack — 12 killed.
  • Jan 9, 2015 Jewish supermarket attack — 4 killed.
  • Nov 13, 2015: Bataclan theater, Paris attacks — 130 killed.
  • March 22, 2016: Brussels, Belgium attack — 22 killed.
  • July 13, 2016: Nice attack — 84 killed.

Terrorists have used boxcutters to hijack planes and ram them into large buildings. They have used handguns and rifles. They use suicide bombers and trucks. The answer by western policymakers should not be to have 85-year-old Catholic women searched at airports, rifles banned, or “kill switches” mandated for all vehicles — and yet that is precisely the mentality that continues to pervade influential circles in academia, media, and politics.

The terror in Nice is just the beginning for Europe because its leaders are failures. The five attacks listed above were all tragic, but one should not forget that the sorrow attached has an added dimension due to the western world’s willful ignorance.

  1. Here we go again. Already, the politicians are spouting the usual platitudes. Enough BS to fertilize every farm in Kansas.

    As usual, Obama says we can’t blame all Muslims, blah blah blah. We can’t get on our high horse because Crusades.

    Hillary says we need to “work with our allies.” To do what? Put up “Peace Will Win” posters? Or post “#Je Suis Nice” slogans and French flag avatars on social media?

    As usual, our government’s response is to lecture us rather than retaliating against the enemy.

    Maybe Hillary will criticize the French cops for excessive force, and will say that we need to put ourselves in the shoes of the poor misunderstood terrorists. And maybe Obama will complain that it’s easier to rent a truck than to check out a library book. The FBI director will probably say that the truck driver was extremely careless, but that there is no proof of malicious intent.

    The New York Times and New York Daily News will blame the NRA, and will call for banning the AR-15 rifle. They may also blame right-wing Christian anti-LGBT rhetoric. Maybe Bernie Sanders will blame capitalism, and Al Gore will blame global warming.

    Obama and Clinton still want to bring in 200,000 Muslim immigrants a year. The “refugees” are supposedly fleeing ISIS, although Obama has repeatedly claimed that ISIS (or “ISIL”) was contained. And, although we have been told for years that ISIS is contained and on the brink of collapse, the terrorist attacks keep coming.

    1. “And, although we have been told for years that ISIS is contained and on the brink of collapse, the terrorist attacks keep coming.”

      If ISIS is smart, then it can lose a lot of territory in Iraq and still remain incredibly lethal. That whole region is big enough where putting pressure on them in one area is just like squeezing a balloon. They might lose control of a city in Iraq, but then make inroads in Syria. Libya is still a mess, and then who knows what the heck is going on with Turkey…

  2. Excellent points, Douglas. If only there was a presidential candidate who has advocated keeping Muslims out of this country and building a wall to prevent illegal immigration as well as to keep potential terrorists out. After what you said, if there was a guy like that I’d sure want to vote for him.

      I’m sure a lot of people will certainly vote for Donald Trump based on statements he made during the Republican primaries. I will be voting for “Giant Meteor,” as my thoughts on the billionaire and Mrs. Clinton are well known. I still maintain America has, for all intents and purposes, reached its own “kill screen.”

  3. Sadly too many people refuse to accept that these Islamists believe in two things: Either you submit to the will of Allah or you are sentenced to die. What’s even sadder is how people were trying to say the terrorist in Nice wasn’t a “true” Muslim/Islamist because he ate pork, etc. It’s not hard to find that in Jihad Islamists believe they can reject tenants of faith and lie to others if it’s in furtherance of the jihad.

    One other thing to point out: you can debate whether or not this is a dominant version or majority version of Islam. However, even if just 1% of Muslims believe in this, that is still over 10 million people worldwide!

    At this point with so many examples you wonder whether it’s willful ignorance or something more sinister among our “leaders”.

    The Islamists have figured out how to use the “useful idiots” in the progressive sphere to cloak their actions in diversity language and use our freedoms against us. The sooner people recognize this, the sooner we can address this issue.

    The “Right Side of History” is the side that comes out on top. Right now, I’m not sure who that will be.

  4. The real sad part to me is who cares? I know we do in these comments. I know my family (blood) and close friends care. I know my democrat zombie in laws care about what they’re told to. I look around establishments I find myself in and wonder how many of them care about how far we’re sliding.

    Where is the rage against injustice in the western world? Where is the will to fight for what are forefathers bled for? Are we it?

  5. You are all missing the point, the answer is gun control, and the problem is the NRA…remember.

    This world is screwed.

    1. “You are all missing the point, the answer is gun control, and the problem is the NRA…remember.”

      The next big obstacle to improving homeland security are American trucking associations. Why are they resisting the vehicle “kill switch” mandates?! 😉
