    French police on Monday arrested 11 people suspected of helping to arm the Tunisian who killed 86 people by driving his truck into a crowd in Nice, sources close to the investigation said. Ten suspects, including one or more Albanians, were arrested in various parts of Nice and another was detained in the western city of Nantes, the sources said. The arrests come five months after Tunisian extremist Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel drove a 19-tonne truck into a crowd on the Nice seafront, further traumatising a country reeling from a series of terrorist attacks. The victims, from 19 different countries, were...

    "I look at the last two years and I see the Islamic State fighting a two-front war," Gorka said on "Fox and Friends" this morning. "They're using violence in the region - in Iraq, in Syria, in Libya - to consolidate and expand the territory they hold ... and they are promoting attacks on the soil of the infidel." He described recent attacks in Paris, Brussels, Nice and Orlando as "guerrilla warfare." "That's exactly what we've seen in New York and in New Jersey this weekend," Gorka said, adding that a bloody knife attack at a Minnesota mall Saturday evening...
  • God Has Not Called Us to Be Nice

    Many Christians believe that the highest calling God has placed on us is to be nice. These Christians are wrong. God has not called us to be nice. Rather, he has called us to be good. Here’s the difference: nice people never confront evil. Good people do. Nice people are weak. Good people are strong. Jesus wasn’t nice. He was kind, he was compassionate, he was caring, but he was unbending and unflinching when it came to standing for the truth. And it cost him his life. Jo Swinney, in a column posted on Christian Today, says this: “Somewhere along...

    NICE (FRANCE) (AFP) – The European road cycling championships, which were due to be held in Nice from September 14 to 18, have been cancelled for security reasons, the French city’s mayor confirmed on Friday. The announcement came just three weeks after the Bastille Day truck attack in Nice which claimed 85 lives and injured more than 300. Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel, a 31-year-old Tunisian who drove a truck into revellers watching a fireworks display on the city’s Promenade des Anglais, was shot dead by police. “Given that it was an event that would have required a large police presence, and...

    In a press conference Sunday, Pope Francis appeared to suggest that all religions are equally prone to violence and that Islam and Christianity are the same in this regard. When asked by a journalist about the “barbarous assassination of Fr. Jacques Hamel” in northern France who was clearly “killed in the name of Islam” last Tuesday, the Pope replied that he doesn’t like speaking about Islamic violence because there is plenty of Christian violence as well.

    An internal probe by French police has concluded that security measures were appropriate in Nice on the night of the deadly Bastille Day truck attack that left 84 people dead and hundreds wounded. Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve has faced accusations that his office pressured a local official to cover up the lack of national police on July 14, when a local man smashed a truck through holiday crowds in the southern French city. Cazeneuve has denied wrongdoing and is suing for defamation. …

    Republican White House nominee Donald Trump has said that France, Germany and other nations hit by recent terror attacks had only themselves to blame “because they allowed people to come into their territory.” Trump was asked in an interview airing Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press” to expand on his proposal to suspend immigration from what he calls countries “compromised by terrorism” until vetting mechanisms are in place. “I’m going to be coming out over the next few weeks with a number of the places,” said Trump according to an excerpt of the interview. “We have problems in Germany, and...

    Paris (AFP) - French President Francois Hollande on Friday defended his government from accusations it relaxed its anti-terror defences after the Euro championships, and announced plans to arm the fight against the Islamic State group which claimed the Nice attack. Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve has been the lightning rod for accusations that authorities dropped their guard after the June 10-July 10 football tournament, leaving the Bastille Day celebrations targeted in last week's massacre in Nice exposed. Five suspects have been formally charged over the July 14 truck attack in the French Riveria city that killed 84 people.

    BBC ^ | 7/22/2016
    The local authorities in Nice have refused a request by French anti-terror police to destroy CCTV images of last week's lorry attack. The Paris prosecutor's office said the request had been made to avoid the "uncontrolled dissemination" of images. But officials in Nice have responded by filing a legal document, arguing the footage could constitute evidence. It is the latest evidence of a growing dispute between the local and national authorities in the wake of the attack. More than 80 people died when a Tunisian man, Mohamed Lahouaiej-Bouhlel, ploughed a lorry into crowds out celebrating Bastille Day on 14 July....

    As France searches for ways to deal with the threat from jihadists, lawmakers are suggesting radical ideas with one suggesting a French Guantánamo should be opened on an idyllic island off the west coast. The tranquil island of Ile de Ré, which lies just off the La Rochelle on France’s west coast, is used to welcoming tourists from the UK and France in search of peace and quiet. […] George Fenech, MP for center-right Les Republicains party, believes a Guantánamo à la Française could be set up on the island to house all those jihadists who are expected to return...
  • Nice truck attacker had accomplices, plotted for months: French prosecutor

    The Tunisian man who killed 84 people on the French Riviera by ploughing his truck into Bastille Day crowds had been planning the attack for months with the help of at least five accomplices, the Paris prosecutor said on Thursday. “The investigation under way since the night of July 14 has progressed and not only confirmed the murderous premeditated nature of Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel’s act but also established that he benefited from support and complicity,” Francois Molins told a news conference. The prosecutor said he had placed the five people - an Albanian couple, a Tunisian man and two Franco-Tunisian...

    This picture of the truck used in the horrific Bastille day attack in Nice, France shows numerous bullet holes in the windshield.  Presumably, the bullet holes are from police, as it is nearly impossible for ordinary people to legally carry defensive firearms in France.  It appears to be a case of good guys with guns were required to stop a bad guy with a truck.  The latest reports show 73 dead, and scores, maybe hundreds, more injured.  The death toll is likely to rise. From reuters.com: The paper published a photograph of a damaged, long-distance delivery truck, which it...

    PARIS — Police in Nice have questioned a 73-year-old man described as the Bastille Day killer’s “main lover” as investigators described him as a “sex maniac” and “ultra-violent sadist,” according to French reports. The revelation came amid revelations that Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel had displayed a “clear, recent interest in the radical jihadist movement,” growing a beard only in the last eight days after a previous life drinking alcohol and eating pork. Francois Molins, the French prosecutor, said the Tunisian, who killed 84 people when he plowed into crowds on Nice’s Promenade des Anglais last Thursday, had searched on the Internet...

    The Nice terror attack spurred finger pointing among France’s political elite about insufficient security during Bastille Day celebrations, as well as a sober acknowledgment that the threat of radical Islamist terrorism has become a day-to-day reality for life in France. The terror attack that killed 84 along the French Riviera on France’s independence day, July 14, has challenged the political discourse in France on how to combat terrorism. Focus has partially shifted away from eliminating terrorism’s root causes toward finding ways to effectively mitigate the terrorist threat through better security.

    The Islamist terror attack in Nice France, carried out by a jihadist in a heavy truck, should be yet another blow to the Democrat gun control movement in the U.S., and an indictment of the Euro-socialist model of government that the left adores. First and most obviously, the attacker used a commonly available, useful, but potentially dangerous tool to slaughter many more people than his fellow jihadist in Orlando managed with firearms. Are we to ban heavy trucks now? It is probable that some Islamist nutcase in America will try to imitate his French co-religionist. When that occurs will President...
