A truck filled with arms and grenades ploughed head on into a crowd celebrating on July 14, which is Bastille Day – French National Day, while a fireworks display had just finished.

The Mayor of the region Christian Estrosi reported they are treating it as a terrorist attack and over 70 people have been declared dead so far.

The truck driver has been shot dead.

The mayor shared his condolences with the families of the victims and offered an information line people can call, as him and his team assess the situation.

Here are some of his tweets:

    This is evidence that the world governments are the terrorists. Why didn’t anything happen during the euro cup in France? Because that is economically beneficial….. Why do they keep killing people? Because they are working against Gods will to depopulate the earth….

    There is a lesson somewhere in there for Nigeria, something along the lines of stamping out Islamic extremism early, odds are we’ll ignore it though.

    If the recent untimely deaths and the circumstances surrounding those deaths are not proof that we are living in the end times, I really don’t know anything else that might hit home. From the two African Americans killed by police officers, to the 5 police officers who died following a cowardly ambush by an ex-army reservist, and now to 77 people plowed to death by a truck driver at an Independence Day celebration in France. I can’t begin to imagine the sheer shock the family members of these victims are forced to deal with now. My heart breaks when I think of the number of lives that are forever altered by this cowardly act. Kids who will never see their parents again. Parents who have been stripped of the joy of watching their kids graduate, get married, have babies etc. Dreams that will never be fulfilled. When is this going to end? It’s incomprehensible how another human being could conceive such an atrocious idea against innocent people. All I can say is, Jesus please take the wheel. This is becoming the norm of the society instead of an exception. We are becoming numb to it. We are subconsciously accepting this new normal. This was by no means was the first terrorist attack on France, and hoping it would be last is unrealistic unless world leaders rally and devise a plan to defeat ISIS.

    There are three spheres of Islamic radicalization, the documentary explains, providing a visualization of the categories described by author and philosopher Sam Harris.

    The first circle, “Violent Jihadists,” are members of terrorist organizations such as the Islamic State, Al Qaeda, Hezbollah, and Hamas. They are the smallest, but most lethal and radical part of the sphere.

    “Islamists” are the second part of the sphere. They seek the same end-game as the violent jihadists, but would rather use the political system to do so. The documentary cuts to Sam Harris, who explains what kind of people are part of the Islamist group.

    “They are just as convinced of martyrdom and paradise and wanting to foist their religion on the rest of humanity, but they want to work within the system. They’re not going to blow themselves up on a bus. They want to change governments,” Harris says. “They use democracy against itself.”

    The Muslim Brotherhood’s short-lived reign in Egypt is a perfect example of the tactics utilized by Islamists to rise to power, the Clarion Project film explains.

    The Brotherhood, which calls for the imposition of Sharia law, became the ruling power in Egypt after they won an election in the midst of revolutionary chaos throughout the country. They were later deposed as a ruling authority after millions of Egyptians took to the streets demanding the resignation of President Mohamed Morsi.

    Al Qaeda and Hamas were created by the Brotherhood, the video explains, showing the interconnectedness between the violent jihadis and the Islamists.

    “Fundamentalists” represent the largest circle within the spheres of radicalization. These are the Muslims who hold views that radically contrast western values. The documentary shows that a vast majority of fundamentalists support the killing of people who leave the Muslim faith. Additionally, according to polling, it shows that most find honor killings of unfaithful spouses as “justifiable.”

    By The Numbers finds that hundreds-of-millions of Muslims fall within one of these three categories, citing Pew polling to make this conclusion……………Source By the numbers

    I woke up this morning hearing this news and thinking to myself “”again””?! This thing called religion had caused too much havoc in the world since its inception.

    Maybe since we as humans have evolved, we should look to reviewing and rewriting our holy books (both the bible and qu’ran) removing all evil aspects of both books and leaving only the good. So that our pastors and imans will only have available good things to teach to their congregants.

    Wishful thinking i know……*sigh and yes before you attack me, the old testament does contain unkind teachings also and they should be removed.
