Muslim immigrant, 31-year-old Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel, chose Bastille Day to drive a truck down a crowded pedestrian precinct in Nice, killing 84 men, women and children, possibly many more. He did so for over a mile. Reflect on that, over a mile.
So, yet another blow for the religion of peace and yet another opportunity for everyone to say that a Muslim terrorist has nothing to do with Islam, as they draw hashtags and peace signs while listening to All You Need is Love.
Shortly afterwards, French President, Francois Hollande, told the French people that they must “learn to live with terrorism.” Or, as one person put it, “What a pathetic coward.”
Pray for those who were senselessly killed, wounded and bereaved. Pray too that the West wakes up to a religion grounded, rooted and perpetrated in war since its inception.
To put it another way, peace signs aren’t going to cut it.
