Islamic State claims responsibility for France attack in Nice

It remained unclear whether the Islamic State had directed the attack or whether they were simply taking responsibility for an attack that they may have inspired. The Islamic-State-connected Amaq news agency cited an “insider source” saying that Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel, 31, “was a soldier of the Islamic State.”

“He executed the operation in response to calls to target citizens of coalition nations that fight the Islamic State,” the news agency wrote.

  • Islam is the reason.

      Islam is paleo-Nazism. It must be destroyed utterly.

    Monsieur Bean promised us relentless war the last time, but all we got was relentless faggotry.

    Gee, sure hope all the public displays of grief, candlelight vigils and prayers stop the next attack by Islam followers. I’m sure it’s all just a big misunderstanding. Radicalization on a fast boil, slow boil, what’s the difference. Same result of many deaths every time.

    It’s a cheap claim. Any time some mossie slime commits terrorism, they claim credit.

    Daesh has a limited international command capability. In Europe, they are more of a movement than a command directed organization. If you say you are daesh, then you are daesh. This makes them more dangerous because there is no structure to roll up.

      they don’t need it, just followers with a belief in the literal koran and shariah. the ideology does the rest.

    they are not exaggerating , he did respond to calls for attacks, but then by the same token what are we to make of western elites that facilitate the rise of islamic violence?
