Nice attack: Terror suspect named as Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel

He was shot dead after driving for hundreds of metres along the Promenade des Anglais, while people celebrating Bastille Day watched fireworks.

The terror suspect has been named as 31-year-old Bouhlel by local newspaper Nice-Matin. He had been a father for three years.

  • Gee, named Mohammed, what a shock.

      And a petty criminal. However the cops are cautioning that they found doucumentation identifying himby that but the cops are investigating just to make sure.
      Yeah boilerplate stuff but still interesting

      By my count well over 50%;of terror attackers have mohammed somewhere in their name. So its a safe bet to make.

    The politically correct MSM are already dancing around the issue. Newstalk 1010 in Toronto morning man John (I refuse to come out of the closet) Moore says that it’s the fault of mainstream society in France – that “Mo was a victim of French colonialist policies that colonized North Africa, allowed him to immigrate to France and then marginalized him when he arrived – no one would give him a job, he was effectively a second class citizen and he was sidelined and forced to turn to Islam”….

    Yup it’s everyone’s fault but the perp and of course – no negative comments about the religion allowed.
