ISIS Claims Responsibility for Nice, France Islamist Terror Attack … Its Our ‘soldier’ Behind Nice Truck Attack

ISIS CLAIMS RESPONSIBILITY FOR NICE TERROR ATTACK

 An Islamic State-run media outlet says the man who barreled his truck into a crowd in the French coastal city of Nice is a “soldier” of the group.

The Aamaq news agency on Saturday cited a “security source” as saying the attacker “carried out the operation in response to calls to target the citizens of coalition countries fighting the Islamic State.”

The statement did not name the attacker, and the language implied that he may have acted independently. There is no evidence IS was involved in planning the July 14 attack.

The attack killed 84 people and wounded 200. The driver was identified as Mohamed Bouhlel, a Tunisian deliveryman known to authorities as a petty criminal.

80+ Dead in Truck Islamic Terror Attack on Bastille Day in Nice, France (Update: Terrorist Killed)

MORE THAN 80 DEAD IN TERROR ATTACK IN NICE, FRANCE

UNREAL … It has happened again in France … Radical Islamic terrorism. A truck plowed into pedestrians during Bastille Day celebrations in Nice, France Thursday leaving at least 80 people dead. France’s president called this an “obviously a terrorist attack.”  The WAPO is reporting that at least 84 people are dead as a driver also opened fire on revelers before being shot dead by police.

A truck plowed into pedestrians during Bastille Day celebrations in the popular French seaside city of Nice Thursday, leaving at least 80 people dead in what the nation’s president called “obviously a terrorist attack.”

The deadly toll, which included several children, came after the truck slammed into revelers gathered on a promenade to watch fireworks, French President Francois Hollande said in an address Friday morning.

“Such a monstrosity,” Hollande said. He pledged to step up efforts to fight terror in Iraq and Syria, and said he will seek to extend a state of emergency by three months.

“France is deeply saddened, but it is also very strong,” Hollande said. “I can assure you we will always be stronger than the fanatics who are trying to attack us.”

The driver was fatally shot by police, Hollande said. It is unknown if there were accomplices, Hollande said. French media, citing a police source, reported that ID papers belonging to a French-Tunisian were found in the truck. A source told NBC News the driver is believed to have been a French national of Tunisian descent.

41 Dead and 239 Injured in Co-ordinated Terrorist Suicide Attack at Istanbul’s Ataturk Airport (VIDEO)

TERRORIST ATTACK HITS TURKEY’S ISTANBUL ATATURK AIRPORT, 36 41 DEAD.

Three explosions rocked Istanbul’s Ataturk airport in a co-ordinated suicide attack as innocent people ran for their lives. In the end there are 41 dead, to date, and nearly 240 injured following this radical Islamic terror attack. However, it is expected that the death toll could rise to 50. Three suicide bombers drove to the airport in a taxi and starting shooting before they blew themselves up. Although they have not officially claimed responsibility for the terror attack, ISIS is suspected.

Witnesses have described the terrifying moment three suicide bombers launched a co-ordinated attack on Istanbul airport that has left at least 41 dead saying there was blood and body parts everywhere.

Shocking footage has shown an explosion at the door to the arrivals hall by a suicide bomber before another two attackers snuck into the building and detonated their devices.

Twenty-three of the victims were Turkish citizens and 13 foreign nationals were also among the casualties, an official has said. A total of 41 people have already been confirmed dead, but Turkish officials said that number is expected to rise to 50.

This morning the airport has re-opened while investigators piece together what happened, just hours after the attacks, which also left 239 people injured.

One of the passengers who was traveling through Ataturk airport at the time of the blasts was Laurence Cameron, a British cameraman who was traveling from Latvia to Izmir, on the Turkish coast.

UPDATE I: Airports in the U.S. and around the world increased security in the wake of Tuesday night’s suicide bombing attack at Istanbul airport.

Airports in the U.S. and around the world increased security in the wake of Tuesday night’s suicide bombing attack at Istanbul airport, in which the Islamic State terror group is suspected of killing at least 41 and injuring hundreds more.

The body count was expected to climb in the wake of the attack at one of the world’s busiest airports after three suicide bombers opened fire with AK-47s before blowing themselves up as police engaged them. As if to underscore Turkey’s determination to carry on in the face of a growing threat, the airport reopened Wednesday, just hours after the dead and some 239 wounded were carried away and glass and debris cleared.

“The findings of our security forces point at the Daesh organization as the perpetrators of this terror attack,” Turkish Prime Miniser Binali Yildirim told reporters at the airport, using the Arabic name for ISIS. “Even though the indications suggest Daesh, our investigations are continuing.”

Attorney General Loretta Lynch Says: Our Most Effective Response to Terror is Compassion, Unity and Love (VIDEO)

GOOD GRIEF: FROM THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION WHO HAS BROUGHT YOU ISIS COMES, ALL WE NEED IS LOVE TO FIGHT TERRORISM.

Yesterday, Attorney General Loretta Lynch spoke in Orlando, Florida and stated, our most effective response to terror and hatred is compassion, it’s unity, and it’s love.” ARE YOU FRIGGING KIDDING ME!!! Let’s understand this, the United States most effective response to terror is compassion, its unity and its love? WTF is this woman talking about? This is the liberal, political correctness agenda that is going to get us all killed. Liberalism truly is a disease.  As Legal Insurrection opined, “It should come as a surprise to no one that under Obama, the nation’s top law enforcement officer sounds more like a high school guidance counselor than a prosecutor.” It is exactly this type of thinking and dealing with terrorism, or the lack thereof, that is responsible for 49 individuals being slaughtered in an Orlando nightclub. How is it that the Obama administration uses more harsh words and rhetoric to describe Republicans and Conservatives than they do terrorists? Thus lies the problem. The barbarians are at the gates and according to the Obama administration, all ya need is love.

We have an administration that has their heads up their collectives asses so far due to an ideology that they are putting America and Americans at risk. I would ask, who is the JV? It would seem it is the current Obama administration. Democrats need to be thrown out of office before we are all killed by terrorists.

Washington Free Beacon:

Lynch said the Department of Justice stood in solidarity with the LGBT community “in the light” following a Muslim terrorist’s massacre of 49 people at a gay nightclub last week.

“We stand with you to say that the good in this world far outweighs the evil, that our common humanity transcends our differences, and that our most effective response to terror and to hatred is compassion, it’s unity, and it’s love,” Lynch said. “We stand with you today as we grieve together, and long after the cameras are gone, we will continue to stand with you as we grow together in commitment, in solidarity, and in equality.”

Lynch has been in the news for defending the administration’s decision to redact transcripts between law enforcement and the terrorist, Omar Mateen, during his attack.

Lotus Gunworks Gun Store Owner: We Called FBI Before Orlando Shooting Where 49 Were Killed

THE PROBLEM ISN’T THE GUNS, THE PROBLEM MAY BE THE DIRECTION FROM ABOVE IN THE FBI

Not only was the terrorist gunman Omar Mateen investigated twice by the FBI for potential terrorist behavior in the past, but prior to the Orlando night club shooting where 49 people were slaughtered a gun store owner called the FBI regarding Mateen. The co-owner of a Florida gun store, Lotus Gunworks, says his employees contacted law enforcement before the Orlando shooting after gunman Omar Mateen attempted to purchase body armor and ammunition. We are told as citizens to be aware and report things that are unusual.

Maybe, just maybe Barack Obama and Democrats, who would use a tragedy that was a result of radical-Islamic terrorism, for their own liberal anti-gun agenda, maybe this more about a government agency that seems to have restrictive rules in doing their job. How is it that Mateen, like the Boston Marathon terrorist brothers slipped through the cracks? Every indication would point to the fact that they were vulnerable to be swayed to terrorism. Some how the FBI thought differently. A note to Barack Obama, former co-workers stated that Mateen was a ticking time bomb and some how the FBI said no. So if you really stand in solidarity with law-abiding Americans and not just pandering for your anti-Second Amendment agenda, you will have to admit, the government got it wrong and We the People had it right. It was not a gun that killed 49 innocent people at a gay night club in Orlando, Florida, it was your inability to define the enemy and deal with terrorism. So who is the JV now Mr. President?

The co-owner of a Florida gun store says his employees contacted law enforcement before the Orlando shooting after gunman Omar Mateen attempted to purchase body armor and ammunition.

Robbie Abell, co-owner of Lotus Gunworks, said Thursday his workers had a gut feeling about Mateen when he came to the store four or five weeks ago.

Mateen asked for level 3 body armor, according to Abell, but was told the store didn’t carry it. He then made a phone call and spoke in Arabic before asking for bulk ammunition, but employees did not sell it to him.

Abell told reporters “we contacted FBI direct” after Mateen left the store but he did not elaborate on how investigators responded. He believed his employees did what they should have done, Abell said.

Law enforcement officials have told CBS News at this point, they have not found any evidence that the gun shop contacted police about Mateen’s alleged suspicious behavior.

So before you decide to take people’s guns away, maybe you might want to adequately have the FBI investigate those that fit all the descriptions of a terrorist. Do I dare say it, how about the FBI profile Muslim extremists?
