Islamic State Claims Responsibility For Terror Attack In Nice

New York Times: ISIS Claims Responsibility for Attack in Nice, France

NICE, France — The Islamic State claimed responsibility on Saturday for the Bastille Day attack on the seaside promenade in Nice, France, which killed 84 people and injured 202.

“The man behind the running-over operation in Nice, France, is a soldier from the Islamic State, and he carried out the attack to answer the calls for targeting the nationals of countries in the coalition that is fighting Islamic State,” said a statement from a social media account linked to the Amaq News Agency, which bills itself as the terrorist network’s semiofficial news outlet.

Also on Saturday, the SITE Intelligence Group, which monitors jihadist communications, said that the Islamic State had featured its claim of responsibility in a news bulletin on its radio station, Al Bayan, and that it “threatened that ‘crusader states’ are not safe.”

He was unemployed.

1) Where does he get 84,000 pounds to send to his family?

2) Are French welfare benefits that sweet?

3) Did he save up all the money on a trucker's salary and live frugally?

4) His brother said he did drugs. If true, how would he save up much money?

We have been told that Obama was briefed, but we were not told, if he was awake during the briefing or paying attention.

Looking into possible ISIS payments, might put the meme of sudden jihad syndrome, lone wold in jeopardy.

Petty criminal, social failure, drug user, areligious, mentally unstable - seem to be recurring themes in attacks. The only thing missing this time is rap musician. What then is the draw to commit terrorism? Is it instant fame? Feeling of accomplishment? Instant acceptance with and pardon from Allah? The psychology here has got to be interesting. A book to read that discusses a similar situation in the Middle Ages is Pursuit of the Millennium by Norman Cohn. I highly recommend this book.
