Nice Terror Attack: Lethal Terrorism Meets Lethal Journalism

Another devastating terror attack last night, this time in Nice, France, with 31-year-old terrorist plowing a truck into a crowd of people celebrating Bastille Day, killing at least 80 people and leaving 18 in critical condition. The truck was reportedly loaded with arms and grenades.

The terrorist was apparently of French Tunisian descent. But many mainstream media outlets are not reporting that obviously relevant fact. In fact, the mainstream media coverage is outright disgraceful. Here’s but a sample:

Looking at those headlines, you’d think Optimus Prime was just having a bad day.

And it’s not just the headlines and obfuscation around the terrorist’s nationality. Take the New York Times coverage, which includes this graphic.

Again, with the Truck Gone Wild. But notice the mention of “one of the first people crushed” being “a Muslim woman.”

Why mention “one of first victims” at all? Why mention she was Muslim? Why is her religion relevant? And why then do they not mention the religion of the perpetrator?

It is bizarre until you realize there is an agenda at play here. It is not just the wheels of the truck spinning here.

The mainstream media is again treating this as what I call Voldemorterrorism – It-which-must-not-be-named. They are trying hard to avoid any implication the perpetrator was an Islamic terrorist.

But let’s face it. Given his nationality and the trend of terror attacks, he probably was.

We are in the midst of a global war and many do not realize, thanks to the mainstream media and others who are trying to hide the truth. The root cause of this terrorism is the Islamic fundamentalist wish to supplant Western Civilization with a Caliphate. It is not the so-called Israeli “occupation” as most would have you believe.

There is a connection to Israel though. We are truly the canaries in the coal mine, the trial balloons. These vehicular attacks started over here, and as the world yawned, the terrorists became more emboldened. And like the truck plowing through the crowd, these terrorists will not stop. I mean, this just happened in Europe. Did the terrorists care that the EU Parliament applauded Mahmoud Abbas’ blood libel against Israel. Or support nullifying the Jewish connection to the Temple Mount?

In order to win a war, you need to first realize you are fighting one. I fear Europe is already lost. And the rest of the world will follow suit, unless more people realize that worshiping the god of political correctness is just a precursor to worshiping Allah or off-with-your-head.

In the meantime, Israel will continue to be on the front lines to prevent this from happening.
