The recent act of terrorism in Nice, in my opinion, has nothing to do with either ISIS or religion as you will see as you read my article. One of the earliest public groups to react is the Islamic Union in France, who denied it was anything political - well they would.
The first thing in my mind that shows it isn't an act of terrorism by ISIS is the type of attack. A terrorist would have devised a much larger explosion that killed far more people and created more damage.
People tend to forget terrorist attacks these days have four components - publicity, death, chaos, and destruction. In my opinion, this was far too small and indirect to be done by ISIS.
Most attacks like this have a personal goal; I think when the dust settles on the atrocity we may find that someone either dead or injured had connections to the driver of the truck. If you drive a truck down a pavement this usually you are aiming at somebody.
The murderer is identified as a French-Tunisian with a criminal record http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-36800730. Reports say the driver drove the truck in a zig-zag to kill more people before being shot by the police. The anti-terrorism state in France has been extended another three months because of this attack.
From 9/11 http://www.history.com/topics/9-11-attacks through Charlie Hebdo http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/europe/charlie-hebdo-attack-survivor-says-je-suis-charlie-slogan-has-been-misused-in-year-since-atrocity-a6801111.html and onto the desecration of the pyramids http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/world-news/isis-release-devastating-footage-showing-8377593; the goal of ISIS has been the destruction of the civilized world by big public events, not a small gun attack in Nice.
New evidence has come to light, invalidating my theory - so much for not prejudging Muslims as ISIS supporters www.theguardian.com/world/2016/jul/16/islamic-state-claims-responsibility-for-nice-truck-attack.
9/11 closed the US airports, the bombings in Paris http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-34818994 and Brussels https://www.theguardian.com/world/brussels-attacks caused the city centers to be closed off and people to change their travel plans; some never recovered from the fears of traveling on the Metro- all causing mass chaos - what chaos did this attack http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/world-news/bastille-day-crash-live-updates-8424850 cause? The vast percentage of the population will never visit the French Riveria http://deadline.com/2016/07/france-truck-attack-nice-bastille-day-1201786862/, so the financial impact on the economy will be minimalized.
The world's press will soon forget this event, I do feel for the victims, I was on a train crossing the Dutch-German border that came under attack in 1979. I have also almost been shot by a German guard - Munich 1979 - I know the fear these actions cause.
Other things that in my opinion tell me it wasn't a major incident are the type of attack, why carry grenades and ammunition and not make a bomb? Reports say the driver of the vehicle was shooting at random; this means he had no target in mind.
One major point as to why I think the attack came from within France, is the destination - Nice. To me, Nice, means one thing (money), the area from St. Tropez up to Nice is known to be the playground of the rich and famous.
In my opinion, this attack was triggered by the fall in the value of the Franc http://www.express.co.uk/finance/city/636097/France-declares-state-of-economic-emergency-unemployment caused by the Euro's ineffective use as a single currency. If I were a police officer, I'd be looking at an internal action from a radical left-wing group like https://www.jacobinmag.com/2015/11/front-de-gauche-melenchon-besancenot-pcf-ps-france-socialist-europe-eu-mitterand/ rather than a Muslim group.
To end, I am not a fan of Muslims, so my defence of them in this article is purely from a jourmalistic point of view.
