On the evening of the Nice attack http://www.nytimes.com/live/truck-plows-into-crowd-in-nice-france/?smid=fb-nytimes&smtyp=cur my friend, Julia, asked me to write a perspective piece from a UK writer.
In my original article http://alsdomain.weebly.com/whats-happening/nice-bomb-attack - based on information gathered that night and the following day - I tried to keep an open mind and not consider the obvious. The killer is Muslim. Therefore he's a member of ISIS.
As a writer of a piece involving news, I gather information and form a story based on the facts available. I don't express my opinion, for those you can read my blog http://alsdomain.weebly.com/.
When I write my articles, I try to be as objective and open-minded as the facts permit, and never push my agenda or views.
In the last few hours two items of news have come to light that makes the killings more mysterious. One piece said the killer is a member of ISIS http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2016/07/15/who-is-the-nice-terror-attacker-everything-we-know-so-far/, but in the last few minutes this news item has been posted by the man claiming to be the "real" Mohamed Lahaouiej Bouhlel http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/world-news/man-wrongly-identified-nice-isis-8433010
In my article, I tried to play down the ISIS connection, not because I like Muslims but because in the aftermath of 9/11 http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-36811642, the Paris bombing http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-34818994, Charlie Hebdo http://www.nytimes.com/live/truck-plows-into-crowd-in-nice-france/je-suis-nice-twitter/, and the Brussels bomb attack http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-35869985.
My reason for thinking this is that all the mentioned attacks caused major panic and confusion in the world, but this attack in Nice would cause minimal disruption. The style of attack seemed unconnected as well, why drive a lorry at pedestrians, when you can blow it up from a safe position and cause massive destruction?
France had only a week previously eased their security a little after the bombings last year; these raids are designed to cause havoc in the civilised world - apparently, many Muslims don't approve of them. I have often read that the fanatics are a tiny fraction of the Islamic world, in that case, why can't the rest of the Muslims do something about them?
I foresaw the Muslim invasion as soon as Angela Merkel said she'd adopt an "open door" policy; it is a repeat of the end of my tour in Germany when Abyssinians turned Germany into a war zone, within a few weeks of being invited to the country. I guess being a Muslim, being a trouble-maker comes with the territory.
Contrary to opinion, the attacks are not at Christian values as ISIS has destroyed things of cultural value from all religions including the pyramids http://www.express.co.uk/news/world/687292/Islamic-State-bulldoze-mummies-Palmyra-destruction and Baghdad Museum http://alsdomain.weebly.com/free-reads/a-historical-disaster. ISIL attacks anything, anywhere that is modern, no country is safe if you're not Islam.
Last year, there was considerable debate as to why these immigrants didn't go the rich Arab countries nearby? The answer is simple to understand - you can't give to Islam, what Islam already holds.
