NICE ATTACK President François Hollande called the attack “terrorism of opportunity

President François Hollande called the attack “terrorism of opportunity” at a 4am address, and announced three days of mourning and an extended national emergency. He now faces political backlash over the country’s struggling security services.
The attacker was named as Mohamed Lahouaiej-Bouhlel, a chauffeur and delivery driver who was born in Tunis but had lived in France for years. Three police officers exchanged fire with Lahouaiej-Bouhlel during his rampage, and found him dead in the passenger seat of the truck, Molins said.

 

Islamic State has claimed responsibility. In an online statement through news agency Amaq, it described the attackers as one of its “soldiers” carrying out the “operation in response to calls to target nationals of states that are part of the coalition fighting Islamic State”CLAIMED IS THE IMPORTANT WORD , IT IS NOT A CONFIRMED FACT AS YET.

 

.
Police found two automatic weapons, ammunition, a mobile phone and documents in the truck, the prosecutor said. They also found fake weapons and more documents at Lahouaiej-Bouhlel’s residence.
Lahouaiej-Bouhlel had a history of threats, violence and petty theft, Molins said, dating from 2010 to 2016, and had been sentenced this year to six months in prison for a road-rage incident.
Lahouaiej-Bouhlel was unstable and sometimes violent. His father Monthir Bouhlel, in Tunisia, told RTL he took him to a psychiatrist, and he took his treatments and had a “serious illness”. Since his son moved to France, he had not seen him for four years.
But he was “totally unknown” to French anti-terror officials, Molins said, and so far authorities have not found links to terror groups or evidence of radicalisation.
Five people have been arrested. x-wife was taken.

Israel and Turkey Joint Support of FSA, al Nusra and ISIS 

Israel’s strategic partnership with Turkey, a known supporter of Islamic foreign fighters in Syria (see details below), puts Israel squarely in the frame with US and GCC-backed Islamic insurgent fighting groups, including Islamic State terrorist (ISIS/ISL).

Among other sources, the Jerusalem Post reported one testimony from an ISIS fighter confirming that Turkey is funding the Islamic terrorist group. As a NATO member and close ally of the US, it is now widely understood how Turkey has played the pivotal role in helping foreign terrorist fighters and ISIS militants, in its wider effort to help destablize and exact the official US foreign policy of regime change in Damascus, Syria.

I ONLY WISH TO CONFIRM THE FACTS REGARDS ISIS AND ISRAEL.1/Israel with turkey has bought black market oil from ISIS. FACT.2/ISRAEL have had their military officers advising ISIS, photographic fact3/Israeli medical staff have been tending to Isis wounded photographic fact.3/ ISRAEL HAS BEEN USING THEIR MILITARY AID FROM THE U S A  FOR FUNDING AND SUPPLIES FOR ISIS . OH WITH THE COVERT SUPPORT OF THE U S A ZIONIST JEWS IN CONGRESS.

ISIS SAYS THIS ATTACK IN NICE WAS BACKED AND CARRIED OUT BY ONE OF THEIR JIHADISTS. If this is the case .Israel (MOSSAD) ARE IN PARTNERSHIP WITH ISIS SO WHAT ISIS DO OR SAY COMES DIRECTLY FROM ISRAEL.

This statement will get the normal reaction from the Zionist jews in and out of Israel.but they will not confirm or deny the above documented facts  of their control of Isis,they use them to distract , destroy ,destablize the middle eastern arab countries.How can Isis be islamic terrorists?When the last five attacks (not france)have been against their fellow muslims.Most arab muslim nations have had some form of attack from Isis.Israel the non muslim country in the middle east claiming to be a jewish democracy has not had one single attack by Isis, MAKE NO MISTAKE HAMAS ARE NOT ISIS.

YET MOST OF THE WORLD  LEADERS CONTINUE TO SUPPORT ISRAEL IGNORING THE FACTS OF ISRAEL’S BEDFELLOWS BECAUSE IT SUITS THEIR END GAME.

What you are getting from Mossad yes men outside of the middle east is this.(Remember no confirmation yet this was an ISIS CONTROLLED ATTACK)

You just have to love this: Not a word about the massacre in Nice on most of the conspiracy theorists blogs, not one word on the anti Semites or the Israel haters Facebook’s. It sad really. But then again they are all waiting on a way to blame Israel yet again for this atrocity which shouldn’t take long…

It’s beyond belief really. The Israeli army arrest a child for throwing rocks at cars (I suppose they think that wouldn’t happen in there own country that the police would give the child an ice cream and thank him) and they start cry out about the brutality of the IDF on children but dozens of little children lying dead on the streets of Nice and on over 50 in critical condition many with arms and legs torn off as they were dragged along the street by the terrorist lorry. Yet this doesn’t even deserve a mention on these morons social media sites.

 

THIS IS HOW IT WORKS- ABUSE , BLAME , SARCASM ,LIES, DISTRACTION,VITRIOLIC LANGUAGE, TWO WRONGS DO NOT MAKE A RIGHT, EXCUSE, MEANS JUSTIFIES THE END,  NO IT DOES NOT.

THIS GUY MANIPULATES THE FACTS TO SUIT MOSSAD,S CAUSE AND EFFECT.He has been found out though for his constant 360 degrees turnaround to suit his current opinion.One minute he is quoting john and yoko “give peace a chance the next minute he is saying this

ISSI, HEZBOLLAH, AL-QAEDA THE WHOLE LOT OF THEM ARE TO BLAME FOR LAST NIGHTS SLAUGHTER OF 84 INNOCENT PEOPLE IN NICE. THESE SAVAGES MUST BE VAPOURIZED

This headline really angered me!!!

‘He drank alcohol, ate pork and took drugs. He was NOT a Muslim – he was a s***’: Truck terrorist’s cousin reveals he is an ‘unlikely jihadist’ who beat his wife and NEVER went to the mosque…..Sorry this headline is trying to make some type of sickening excuse that he is not a terrorist!!! As far as I’m concerned whether this piece of shit is directly or indirectly part of ISIS they and they alone stand 100% responsible in my eyes for his barbaric subhuman act of cold blooded murder. Those that are easily influenced or have some serious mental problems will look towards ISIS as they carry out copycat atrocities. Yes ISIS are responsible for this there is no doubt in my mind.

SO  NO DOUBT IN HIS MIND  IT IS ISIS FINE AN ASSUMPTION ,OPINION ,FACTS FEW AND FAR BETWEEN AN EMOTIONAL STATEMENT.Let us accept it to be true as true as the facts that have been stated about Israel,s control, support  of ISIS.

ISRAEL BY ASSOCIATION ARE JUST AS GUILTY AS ISIS THEN ;QUOTE”THESE SAVAGES MUST BE VAPORIZED!”

 

Hardly a surprise anymore yet had this shocking event occurred before 9/11 one can be certain the reaction would have been totally different. For sure the question everyone would have been asking is – WHAT MADE THIS MAN DO SUCH A TERRIBLE THING? For now I believe this awful incident is similar to what occurred when Andreas Lubitz deliberately crashed Germanwings flight 9525 into the Alps killing 149 people. Both men allegedly were depressed. In the kind of world we live in today, small wonder these type of events are occurring with ever-increasing frequency.

Yet the reaction to these two incidents couldn’t be more contrasting. In short, the man who killed 149 innocent people wasn’t a terrorist whereas the man who killed 84 innocent folk was. This one, we are unreliably informed by the Zionist controlled media, was a terror attack. I ask, what is the difference? Simple. Lubitz was Jewish whereas Lahouaiej Bouhlel was a French resident of Tunisian origin. Once again we see the reaction that we’ve come to expect from Zionist puppet Hollande – France vows to retaliate. Mysterious to say the least, Tunisia wasn’t mentioned but then Bouhlel was a French citizen. Worse still – who is in the firing line? Iraq & Syria…… again!

Now there may be a simple reason for this but I thought it was worth noting France being a country where they drive on the left-hand side, you can naturally see the steering wheel on the left. Well…… how come all the bullet holes are on the right?…………. Just saying…… Craig Considine though took the words out of my mouth. This is what people should be concentrating on….. 2nd caption……

One thing for sure – Israel was responsible for 9/11; the West’s Zionist puppets created this war of terror for the benefit of Israel & the establishment of a New World Order. When you bomb countries to oblivion on a false premise creating pain & suffering on a scale scarcely imaginable there can be but one result – total, utter resentment. This is the climate the Zionists wanted to create – Arabs & Muslims naturally resent us for destroying their countries for no reason. The media know the score. They are entirely complicit in the deaths of these people in Nice. Their job is to make sure ordinary folk never realise who is really responsible for all this carnage & crucially keep attaching the blame to Jihadist extremists that they’re desperate to foster.

People have to start thinking for themselves. Ignore everything the media says; better still, blame the media! The harsh reality is throughout history, madmen all over the world have committed one-off atrocities. Where was the outpouring of grief when Anders Breivik mowed down over 70 people in Norway. Did Norway declare a war on terror? Why wasn’t Andreas Lubitz declared a terrorist? Most significantly, when are we going to conclude that people like Obama, Cameron & Hollande are absolutely useless at fighting terrorism? Are we ever going to utilise plan B? Is there even a plan B? These are genuine questions people should be asking of the media. As I said at the beginning of this piece, what we should be asking is why this man did such a terrible thing? At least RT tries to report news……

Why the bloody hell hasn’t Alison Saunders been arrested yet?

Alison Saunders

Establishment hag, Alison Saunders, has announced plans to clampdown on online ‘trolls’.

Oh yeah?

What she really means is that her masters have told her to do everything she can to stop social media reporting on VIP paedophiles in power.

Under the guise of protecting the victims of crime,  Saunders is slyly trying to bring in laws to stop Twitter and other sites ‘harassing’ victims and ‘hurting their ‘ feelings’.

Of course, in reality Alison Sunders couldn’t give a fuck about real victims.

She has in fact  spent her legal life as an Establishment ‘gatekeeper’ very much in the same vein as paedophile-lover Esther Rantzen.

And I for one am not in the slightest bit surprised. Moreover, anyone who tries to make out I’m in the business of scare-mongering, let me tell you now – back up your bull with something because I’m not in the mood for pandering to twats who’ve fallen for the fear-mongering the Zionist controlled media has bombarded us with – this fictitious threat of terror which the West’s Zio-puppets have done all they could to create, destroying country after country, just because Israel wants it! You go with all the media crap but woe betide if I say I believe just about everything David Icke says in this video – I’m the one who’s fear-mongering?

Well I’m not. I only believe in saying how I feel it is & frankly I’m astonished more folk cannot see what’s patently obvious. God knows, ever since Cameron first began making an enemy out of Russia, how many times did I say ‘WHY’S HE DOING THIS & MORE IMPORTANTLY, WHY ISN’T ANYONE IN THE MEDIA QUESTIONING THIS MADNESS?’ How often I wondered, almost in amazement, looking at our prime-time squeaky clean news readers like Fiona Bruce & Mary Nightingale thinking ‘don’t you have families & kids? Yeah. Go on. Keep pumping out the lies. Your jobs are that important, so what if Cameron goads Russia into war. It’s only talk!’

Well, you’re the ones with families & kids – not me….. & sooner or later, the way we’re going, if people in high places don’t start questioning these traitors we have masquerading as our elected representatives that so few people actually voted for, then it will be exactly how Icke ended the clip by saying – “IF WE GO INTO THIS 3rd WORLD WAR, THEN IT’S GOODBYE FREEDOM!”

What does it take to ask ‘what exactly has Russia done to incur the West’s wrath?’ Well I’ll tell you but it’s the very antithesis of what the bent BBC or that two-bit liar Cameron will say –

1) The Russians tried to stop Syria befalling the same fate as Libya, Iraq & Afghanistan.
2) The Russians tried to destroy ISIS!
THAT’S WHY RUSSIA HAS BECOME OUR ENEMY! GET THIS INTO YOUR HEAD!

In fact from the moment unrest was fashioned in Syria, everything I’ve ever said has been proved right. The first time we heard the name ISIS, I wrote on Facebook ‘YES. THIS MOST CERTAINLY IS A TERRORIST ORGANISATION. HOWEVER, IT’S ONE THAT’S FUNDED BY THE U.S & SAUDI ARABIA BUT IT’S HEADQUARTERS ARE IN TEL AVIV! This was the same day the media christened these evil mercenaries ISIS.

Goodness knows how many months ago I got bored telling people – the only people they’ve killed en masse are Muslims & Arabs & the only country they’ve never attacked is Israel! WE ARE THE GREAT DESTROYERS. Thanks to Karen Barry for sending me this clip……
I’m abroad right now. I was not going to post anything because I really needed a break. I’ll be back Thursday & hopefully my will to put pen to paper will return with zest.

we have missed you italk fm.one week and nothing.

No ,no, credit where credit is due, we have missed you a whole week without a comment .mr G. seems to have been replaced by a far more sinister character ” MY BLOG SPY”OOOOOOO I NEARLY SHIT MYSELF WHEN I saw this, ¡¡LAUGHING!! come on Maurice you read my blog, I KNOW. YOU MIGHT SAY i AM VERY APPT. AT FINDING OUT.

No you do not read it, you have all these characters doing it for you ,is that not called multi person disorder,plus bipolar and dyslexia?

Still poor old MR G. 6 years and he has got the old heave ho by the far more scary ,music, roll of drums- !B L O G  S P Y ¡. No nice to have you back. Mobo I HAVE MISSED YOU ,Sort of like one would miss a frontal lobotomy!(ask my mate Jack cuckoo).

Below is subject matter that you misguidedly believe I ignore, not true they have been commented on more than once on my blog, but I am repeating these comments for your benefit as you obviously missed them first time around .

Native Americans 100 million slaughtered by migrants entering the country without permission. 20 times the jewish holocaust. I HAVE MENTIONED THIS SEVERAL TIMES HERE AND ON FACEBOOK .You now mention it on your blog well done ,good man!

Ireland that is both North and south,native Irish( born in IRELAND faith catholic)slaughtered,TRANSPORTED,USED AS SLAVES,INDENTURED BY THE BRITISH.MADE HOMELESS BY THE BRITISH .Then their homes given ,sold to migrants from europe into the north protestants from scotland were brought, also migrants came from many parts of europe poland,latvia bulgeria ,romania, jewish migrants escaping from the genocide.TO BECOME ILLEGAL SETTLERS IN IRELAND.Though they were few in comparison to the natives.

Gibraltar by the English as stated on this blog gibraltar is part of Spain give it back.IF YOU OFFER ENOUGH MONEY TO THE GIBRALTARIANS, AND THEY GET TO RETAIN THE PROPERTY THEY HAVE THEY WILL BE ACCEPTABLE TO THE MOTHER COUNTRY REGAINING SOVEREIGNTY MAYBE GIB CAN BE AN AUTOMICAL REGION OF SPAIN?

Or is it only Israel that matters in your Eyes?THIS IS YOUR FINAL QUESTION.Simple to answer Israel does not matter, Palestine does ,Israel is the rogue state which has systematically destroyed  palestinian villages, raised them to the ground put ZIONIST JEWISH SETTLERS (ILLEGAL) IN, BUILD HOMES FOR THESE SETTLERS DESTROYED THE PALESTINIANS WIPED OFF THE FACE OF THE EARTH.They have not yet finished the genocide but they are working on it by creating the largest concentration camp in the world  ,to do this they have built a wall around GAZA. BIGGER , LONGER HIGHER THAN ANY OTHER.

BUT THE WORLD INCLUDING THE U S A ,HAVE BEGUN TO SAY, NO, ENOUGH,IF ISRAEL DOES NOT BECOME COMPLIANT THE U S A WILL PULL THEIR FUNDING 4.1 BILLION per year STOPPED .FROM RICH MAN TO BEGGAR MAN THEY ARE ALREADY THE THIEF.

IT WILL HAPPEN PALESTINE WILL BE FREE AND THE JEWS (NOT THE ZIONIST JEWS) WILL HAVE THEIR STATE AND PALESTINE THEIRS THE TIME LORDS WILL MAKE IT HAPPEN . IT REALLY IS ONLY A MATTER OF TIME.

RE your constant comparisons with regards the greater evil of muslims in general and Israels final solution, two wrongs do not make a right. Both need to be dealt with not just one ,think on this, Israel have nuclear weapons,illegal nuclear weapons . modern best equipped military in the world, one can only draw the comparison of the I D F TO BEING THEIR SS GESTAPO. Their politicians are on a mission to eradicate ,wipe the Palestinians off the face of the earth.They have stated this many times.

man and womans inhumanity to humans must stop  before it is too late .

once again Iowe you a debt of gratitude .thanks to you not a word cut or pasted,it is all down to you .

A prophesy fulfilledWhy it’s scarier this time around.There is nothing new about the multi-pronged attack on human rights and anti-occupation activists in Israel, but there’s something different this time. Something scarier.

As scary as the current political atmosphere is for the anti-occupation Left in Israel, it is no surprise to anybody who has skin in the game. Just months after Israel conquered the West Bank and Gaza Strip in 1967, Jewish Israeli philosopher Yeshayahu Leibowitz warned that sooner or later the occupation would come home to roost.

“A state ruling a hostile population of 1.5 to 2 million foreigners would necessarily become a secret-police state, with all that this implies for education, free speech and democratic institutions,” Leibowitz wrote in 1968.

Yeshayahu Leibowitz. (Bracha L. Ettinger/CC-BY-SA 2.5)

And yet, we return to our original premise: why is the current atmosphere any different than the years and decades past? People have been declaring Leibowitz’s prophesy fulfilled for over four decades now. Maybe there has been no dramatic turn for the worse. Maybe we are simply witnessing the latest dip in the depressing trajectory we’ve been following since June 6, 1967 — or, as many Palestinians would argue, since May 15, 1948.

At the end of the day it doesn’t really matter. Soon Israeli Right will celebrate 50 years since the occupation began, while multiple generations of Israelis and Palestinians will have never known a political system that treats all of its subjects equally. Institutional psychology teaches us that institutions are inherently averse to change, that their natural state is fighting to preserve the status quo. In Israel, that means fighting to maintain the occupation, fighting to retain military control over the West Bank, to some extent over the Gaza Strip, and on a number of levels, over the Palestinian people themselves.

After 50 years, it is only natural to perceive anything that challenges the occupation and Jewish political supremacy, the status quo Israel’s government is fighting to preserve, as a threat to the regime. And in the popular lexicon of contemporary Israeli political thought, a threat to the current Israeli regime is a threat to the Jewish people. And that, although it may not be articulated quite in those terms, is where human rights and anti-occupation activists find themselves today.

Remembering the context

The important thing to remember, and this becomes exponentially more difficult as it becomes more personal, is that Israeli human rights and anti-occupation activists are not the ones who most need and deserve the world’s attention here. Israeli human rights activists are not under attack not because of who they are or what they believe in, they are under attack because work threatens the occupation.

And while the political atmosphere in Israel is becoming increasingly hostile to the politics of left-wing Israelis, Palestinians living under Israeli military rule have not had freedom of expression for five decades. They do not have the rights of assembly, of free speech, to vote, to enter or leave their country, to move about freely within that country, to conduct trade, to live with their chosen spouses.
