The End of France: Tragedy in Nice
As a result of a lorry driving into a crowd, more than 80 people were killed on the Promenade des Anglais, and hundreds were injured.
On the afternoon of July 14th, on Bastille Day, the French president said that state of emergency, imposed after the terrorist attacks in Paris in November 2015 until July 26th, would not be prolonged.
“We can't extend the state of emergency indefinitely; it would make no sense. That would mean we're no longer a republic with the rule of law applied in all circumstances,” said Francois Hollande at the meeting with journalists.
In the evening of the same day, at 22:30, the Promenade des Anglais in Nice became a new Bataclan... During the fireworks, thousands of residents of a French town came to see it, and a lorry drove into the crowd at high speed. The vehicle literally paved its way into several hundred meters in the crowd, and then the terrorists opened a fire. The firing between driver and police began. As a result, the driver was shot dead, and the number of victims of the terrorist attack, which consisted of whole families, reached 80+ people... Now the number of wounded is specified, but in the first hour after the attack, a representative of the Parliament of the region Humbert Sebastian said that “hundreds” of people were injured. The luxury quay of the French resort turned into a field of a clash of civilizations, the five-star luxury hotel Negresco – into a hospital... Friday’s newspapers saddened with the word “l'horreur”, concerts and a jazz festival in Nice were canceled, and flags are flied at half-mast...
A resident of Nice Simeon Radu, who was on the Promenade des Anglais at the time of the terrorist attack, near the place of the tragedy, told us how everything had happened: “It happened at about 22:30, I was on the quay at the celebration of the national French holiday. This is our tradition. July 14th is always a day off, all affairs are postponed, and families go for a walk... Suddenly I heard people screaming. Nothing was clear, people began to run randomly. I immediately went home, and then I heard the statement of the mayor of Nice, Christian Estrosi, who was the first to say that it was a terrorist attack, and he urged all residents to remain in their homes.” The witness of the attacks was convinced that “these events symbolize the instability and fragility of France, which could not find a way to protect their own citizens.”
A few hours after the attacks, Twitter accounts of people actively supporting ISIS, were full of joyful messages on a “masterfully executed attack” and a poster-collage with a burning Eiffel Tower was published. Facebook activated its safety check. The same situation happened after the previous French tragedies... Nothing changed, only the city. France once again plunged into a state of fear, which it has tried so long and hard to get rid of.
“Terror and confusion. We are together with Nice residents in this terrible challenge, once again we have to face real barbarism,” said Deputy of the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur Marine Le Pen on her Facebook page.
Terrorist Attacks as The Natural Result of The EU Migration Policy
According to our information, the “attacks that shook Europe, especially France, in 2015-2016 are the natural result of the EU’s general policy on migration, which rejects any form of collective identity.” Such a policy has exacerbated ethnic and social conflicts. “Europe was imbued with ethnic and social arrays of migrants from the Middle East, which in fact are the bearers of an archaic and stable Islamic identity, which does not fit into the culture of modern Europe.”
The pillars of the European Union are the principles of tolerance, human (individual) rights, and multiculturalism. It demanded and demands from European elites and authorities to provide maximum freedom for migrants.
Tragedies that deeply hurt Paris, Brussels, and now Nice are the results of a critical imbalance between the indigenous French and migrants, in which the Islamic-Arab population (the existence of which is totally ignored by liberal European authorities due to the ban on the recognition of “collective identity” in European politics, as well as in law) created vast autonomous socio-cultural fields. Spreading the policy of tolerance by the ruling elites of the European Union has meant that the fruit to grow the formation of radical Islamist structures was established. At the same time, the uncontrolled flow of refugees to the European continent let in representatives of terrorist organizations, who know what “collective identity” is, comparing it to the European elites.
Deep Crisis of French Ruling Elites
The French president and the left-liberal government is rapidly losing popularity: the inability to provide the security of the country (despite increased security measures and the state of emergency introduced in November), as well as solving social and economic problems (unemployment, reform of the labor legislation, which caused a wave of protests and strikes) deprived them of legitimacy. Hollande became the most unpopular French politician (his approval rating fell to 12%, and he became the hero of a series of cartoons about a failed politician).
France, and more widely Europe, is on the edge of the abyss. The attacks are the signs of the beginning of the final moments of a once great civilization... And we can see enough signs of this today.
