Palestinians Hailed for Developing ‘Innovative’ Car-Ramming Terror Tactic Used in Nice Attack

As jihadists around the world expressed their joy over Thursday evening’s terror attack in southern France, one ISIS sympathizer hailed Palestinian terrorists for pioneering the use of vehicles to attack civilians, the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) reported on Friday.

“Killing by ramming using civilian cars and trucks is an idea born from the Maqdisi [Palestinian] mind, which has an innovative nature of thinking up jihad tactics,” read a posting on a pro-ISIS forum online. “Yesterday they taught us [about] the explosive vest, and many plans for street fighting, and today they taught us this tactic. May Allah bless Jerusalem and the environs of Jerusalem, and may Allah bless all of the Levant…Oh Aqsa, we are coming.”

Vehicular terrorism has become a common method employed by Palestinian Jihadists over the past year. According to Israel’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, since September 2015, 46 car ramming attacks have been carried out against Israelis, both injuring and killing scores of civilians and security personnel.

Over the last several years, terror groups — especially ISIS and al-Qaeda — have called on followers to carry out vehicular attacks. In a September 2014 message, ISIS spokesman Abu Mohammed al-Adnani said, “If you cannot [detonate] a bomb or [fire] a bullet, arrange to meet alone with a French or an American infidel and bash his skull in with a rock, slaughter him with a knife, run him over with your car, throw him off a cliff, strangle him, or inject him with poison.”

On Thursday evening, Mohamed Lagouaiej Bouhlel, 31, a Frenchman of Tunisian descent, plowed his truck into bystanders who were watching a fireworks display in the French Riviera city of Nice in celebration of Bastille Day. The driver was subsequently shot dead by police after he attempted to open fire on the crowd and security officials.

At least 84 people — 10 of them children — were killed and over 200 were injured. As reported by The Algemeiner, at least six members of France’s Jewish community are among the injured and missing.

Since the Nice attack, Jihadists have openly been offering praise, claiming the event was part payback against the West as well as a warning of more horrific things to come.

According to MEMRI, many terror sympathizers shared gruesome images of the attack online, with captions such as “Nice attack: We warned you”; “It’s beautiful”; “We want Paris before Rome.” Pro-ISIS channel Kawasir Al-Nasher posted a message in English that read: “Oh crusaders, we told you…The next attack is coming soon, we are everywhere, Allah Akbar.”

ISIS media operatives of the French-Arabic group Nashir for Design distributed several online posters and images with the caption, “Inshallah we will conquer your lands, you will become Muslims despite yourselves or you will pay the capitation tax in humiliation, otherwise the sword will slice your necks. It is Allah’s promise.”

Posting photos of dead children in Syria, the group warned, “This is what your planes do to our children, so accept what is happening to you…It is only the start, we are years and years behind!”

    These people are so stupid. They’re out celebrating these murders of “infidels” when at least one of the dead was a Muslim child. They don’t even know what they’re doing. Hopefully such idiocy will self-destruct in our time.

  • Edward Gordon

    If this is there claim to fame then they should be put on
    the list of terrorist organizations. As a terrorist organization should not be receiving our tax payers money.

  • Max Genghis Cohen

    To Nashir for Design: Become enlightened before the West rises to smite all who boast that Allah wishes cowardly terrorism upon innocents. Rather it shall be that Allah will show the West how to rid the world of the jihad curse.

  • Kris Kristian

    This must be a warning to every country that has taken in millions of migrants.
    This a ploy to get into every country without having to spending years to increase the Muslim populations in each country.

    Unless they consider what Trump has said "send them back to the deserts" it wont be more thatn10 years before each country will over populated with Muslims.
    GODBYE TO CHRISTIANITY. You will all be warned to convert to Islam or face the sword.

    Time for the Christian countries to stop their anti Semitism and hatred of Israel, and work with Israel to dismantle to spread of Islam

    That is the only way to save yourselves and your countries

  • All this and 50% of Israelis were against the shooting of the subdued terrorist by the IDF soldier.

    Every terrorist should be killed, not treated humanely in an Israeli hospital like Israel did with the daughter of the Hamas leader.

    Do you think they like you after your humane treatment? They hate you more for your weakness and they’re right.

    Either destroy them or they will destroy us.

    50% of the country are idiots and that is why the Muslims will win.

  • What good things come from Islam?? The future under Islam is all about taking lives and nothing about saving or improving lives. What future does Islam offer other than regression and hate? If you see a future in hate and killing then Islam is for you. If you see a future filled with hope, love, progress, development and the praise of God for the good that he bestows on His children then Islam is NOT for you.The god of Islam is the god of death.

    They have asked for it. They have gotten down on their knees and begged for it. I do not know what it takes to convince the European bigots, who spend their time excoriating Israel while their own deaths mount up. Is it too late for them to wake up? It is way past time for Jews to wake up. EUROPE IS PREPARING FOR A SECOND SHOAH, G-d forbid. Get out while you can. If the Nazis do not get you the terrorists will. Please leave, this time while you are still alive.

    Oh dear. A good hiding awaits the palestinians. Mr Lieberman is not a fellow that likes to play games, so I expect a mallet response in swatting a mosquito.

  • The ones use this method are PUNKS and should be recognized as such!

  • In a new Harvard study on “When and Why We See Victims as Responsible,” Niemi and Young, found that a focus on the victim corresponded with an increased focus on the victim’s responsibility and a decreased focus on the perpetrators.’ “It may be surprising,” they note, “that focus on the victims did not increase sympathy for victims. Instead, our findings suggest that a more effective strategy for addressing victim blaming would involve increased focus on the perpetrator.”

    In other words, this is one area when trying to appeal for sympathy by putting Israel in the center of the story does not build actual sympathy. Instead, it does the opposite, inviting outsiders to put themselves in the Palestinians’ shoes and think about all of the ways that they themselves would have avoided this harm might be more effective.

    Therefore, we might ask people to “put yourself in the shoes of a Palestinian leader and think about all of the decisions you could have made to make things turn out differently” than what actually has happened. For example, would you have:

    – Massacred innocent Jewish men, women and children in 1920, 1921, 1929?
    – Attacked British troops in 1936 (resulting in 5,000 Palestinian casualties and loss of weapons)?
    – Rejected all UN resolutions granting you a homeland in 1948?
    – Fled your home without a fight in 1948 in order to avoid shame of accepting Jewish rule?
    – Assassinated Jordan’s King Abdullah in 1951?
    – Organized attacks to kill 400 and wound 900 Jewish men, women and children between 1951 – 1956?
    – Refused to contemplate land for peace offers after losing the Six-day war in 1967?
    – Sparked a civil war in Jordan causing up to 20,000 casualties in 1970-71?
    – Attempted assassination of King Hussein in 1970?
    – Assassinated Jordan’s Prime Minister in Cairo in 1971?
    – Murdered Jewish Olympic athletes in 1972?
    – Massacred 21 Jewish school children in 1974?
    – Sparked a civil war against Christians in Lebanon in 1975, lasting until 1990 with 250,000 civilian casualties and 1 million wounded?
    – Purged and executed 600 of your fellow Palestinian political opposition members in 1978?
    – Began the use of suicide attacks on civilian buses in 1989?
    – Signed a peace agreement with Israel, but continued to encourage suicide attacks on Jewish men, women and children (1993-2000)?
    etc… up to the present day when you continue to encourage your people to commit suicide through Jew killing, whether through knives, vehicle, or gun attacks against Jewish men, women and children?

  • 2 important points:

    1. this kind of terrorism will stop when respected imams and scholars sincerely and energetically condemn and anathematize proponents AND all those who fund them; a fatwa should be issued by the most respected Sunni religious leaders declaring, based on well-known Muslim sources, that perpetrators of these evils will be condemned to an everlasting punishment.

    it might be occurring to some in the Muslim world that these words of JFK are true: (paraphrasing) those who seek power on the back of the tiger often wind up inside.

    2. the celebration of the “Palestinians” cited in the article is far too modest: the “Palestinians” are responsible for more than just car-ramming and the tactics mentioned in the article: all the disgusting and savage devices and stratagems of the modern plague of terrorism were developed by the “Palestinians.” they don’t invest their energies and their money in schools, housing, sewage treatment, water resources, roads and other infrastructure, etc. but in ever more devilish plots against the Jews. the pathology is staggering but it is exceeded by that of those in Western Europe who openly or covertly support it, i.e. the EU and many of it members.
