Nice Truck Attack:Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel last words were ‘Allahu Akbar!’

Nice Truck Attack:Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel last words were ‘Allahu Akbar!’

nice attack

Radical Islam is now confirmed as the motivation for this attack.

How we still have people trying to bury their heads in the sand.

Using the logical fallacy of ‘No True Scotsman‘ we already have people claiming that Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel was not a real Muslim.

Why?

According to news reports:

Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel was a wife beater, drug taker, pork eater S***!

None of which precludes the driver from being motivated by radical Islam to commit jihad as a perverted way of atoning for his past ‘sins’.

Whether Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel led a bad life or not is immaterial to what inspired him to crush people with a 19 tonne truck while shouting ‘Allahu Akbar!’

Currently, the death toll now stands at 84.

The below image show the recommended tactics for ISIS.  Running people over with a car in 4th on the list. Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel upped the carnage by using a truck.

    It’s not immaterial. Disturbed loners can be triggered by almost anything. Jihad is merely an easy excuse one who is self-radicalized can put on like a bandit’s mask, to justify their crimes. He wasn’t devout. What he had was a criminal history. Aside from the truck and the pistol he carried, his other weapons were fake. So was his pretense of doing this for religious reasons.

      Thanks for your comments.

      I think that reports of Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel shouting ‘Allahu Akbar!’ as he deliberately drove over people tends to prove the justification in his actions.

      Damaged and desperate people are often used by terrorists because they lack normal human resistance to participating in vile acts. Using martyrdom as a process of cleansing a terrorist of all past sins.

      Whether the person was self-radicalised or radicalised by someone else the result is the same. The man kills for a cause.

        It’s still important to distinguish between loners with problems who find a trigger, like this guy, and ones like the San Bernardino or Paris killers, who did have a connection to quasi-religious cults. No religion condones murder of innocent persons, and it’s dangerous when we fail to understand that. The KKK and skinheads are “Christian identified”. It doesn’t make them Christians, or mean the religion is responsible for their distortion and misuse of it. We can see the confusion in your next commenter, who blames Islam as a whole.

    You said it right. There will always be people on the fringe who only need the evil prompting of an evil ideology that calls for indiscriminate killing in exchange for redemption

    That is, so long as civilization allows Islam to exist, for Islam has one ultimate objective. That all the world submit, whether by dialogue or the sword. And then, they say, after they have killed all the infidels, there will be peace.
    Fat chance so long as Sunni and Shia kill eachother.

      I think that there are a lot of Islamic cults that are running around. One of their biggest issues is that they do not seem to have central moral authority to interpret their texts. That being said most of the current Islamic terrorism is coming from the Middle east rather than Asia where there are far more Muslims.
      I think that hardcore interpretations are in some way a product of Middle Eastern culture.

    I think that media terminology like “Lone Wolf”, “Loner” tends to obscure the central issue of terrorism. Under the same rules, the Unabomber could also be described as a ‘Lone Wolf’. That does make him less of a terrorist and his motivations less political.

    As for the KKK. They are considered to be domestic terrorists. They are a split off from the Masonic Lodge and were originally an Anti-Catholic organization, then quickly became anti-Sematic and finally after the US Civil War they became an Anti-Black movement. Currently, they are a spent force.

    As for Skinheads? I do not see too many of them showing up at churches on a Sunday. There may be some who wear a cross from time to time but it is not central to their Neo-Nazi manifesto. So I not sure how you get the “Christian identified” conclusion.

    Finally, I blame Islam for every problem in the world? Absolutely not.

    However, I do blame Radical Islam for the Truck Attack in Nice.

    I will probably make this clearer in a future posting.

    I do blame much of the mainstream media for following the ‘Religion of Peace’ and ‘No True Muslim’ fallacies after every attack.

    However, many have their own agendas for doing so. Some are trying to content with the idea that their favorite victim group may contain some very dangerous elements.
