Hyping Terrorism, Stoking Fear Following Nice, France Incident

(Before It's News)

Muslims are convenient scapegoats of choice in America, other Western societies and Israel. Islamophobia rages, boosted by Bastille Day violence in Nice. Western media said lone jihadist lorry driver/gunman Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel singlehandedly mowed down or shot over 200 holiday celebrants in Nice overnight – killing scores, injuring many others, the claim defying credibility. How could one person cause so many casualties before being stopped? Logic suggests more than one attacker involved, maybe covert CIA, Mossad and/or French security forces. Rabble-rousing reports made what happened sound like a bad film plot, alleged terrorism the way Hollywood portrays it, sensationalism to build viewer interest – in real life to hype terrorist threats, stoke fear and manipulate people to go along with what they’d otherwise oppose. Bouhlel is dead, lethally shot by police, unable to tell tales, conveniently ID’d by his identity card, cell phone and bank card left behind. Why would anyone carry them to the scene of a planned crime, risking easy identification and arrest if caught alive? Police claimed firearms and explosives were found inside the lorry – no independent corroborating reports available. French President Francois Hollande extended a state of emergency, affording him “extraordinary (police state) powers” for another three months through late September. Permanency may follow, perhaps in other European countries. On September 14, 2001, George Bush issued Proclamation 7463: Declaration of National Emergency by Reason of Certain Terrorist Attacks.” Annually it’s renewed with scant or no media coverage. America’s only threats are ones it invents. Domestic attacks are state-sponsored. No Islamic terrorist ones occurred on US soil in memory, perhaps never. Innocent patsies were set up to look otherwise. False flag deception works this way. On Friday, Hollande vowed stepped up war on Islam, harsher homeland crackdowns and escalated “military action in Syria and Iraq.” Fear-mongering rages on both sides of the Atlantic, Western leaders taking full advantage, plotting their next moves. Was Bouhlel set up like other convenient patsies? Is he the bad guy or is something more diabolical going on? Was state-sponsored terrorism responsible for Nice overnight? Will greater imperial madness follow? Are harsher crackdowns on human and civil rights coming en route to eliminating them altogether? Hillary wants NATO strengthened, making it a greater deterrent to peace and stability than already. Trump said “(t)his is war.” If elected president, he’ll declare it on ISIS, he blustered. Precisely how, where, to what extent, and by what legal authority he left unexplained. Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich called for banning Sharia. Will greater war on Islam follow than already? Wall Street Journal editors hyped Islamophobia, saying “Jihad has become the default assumption of our age.” They urged strengthening NATO, shamelessly claiming it’s to protect freedoms from “21st-century barbarism,” ignoring the real thing. State-sponsored war on humanity is terrorism’s most extremist form. Expect lots more coming – an endless body count of imperial victims. A Disturbingly Familiar Story Ignore Western media reports, automatically calling these type incidents terrorism, Muslims nearly always blamed. Other possibilities are discounted – notably whether what happened in Nice was state-sponsored false flag terrorism, what seems most likely, though it’s too early to rush to judgment. Here’s how The New York Times, the self-styled “newspaper of record,” covered what happened, typical of other reports I’ve seen so far, more obfuscating than enlightening, saying: “A Bastille Day fireworks celebration was shattered by death and mayhem on Thursday night in the southern French city of Nice when a large truck barreled for more than a mile through an enormous crowd of spectators, crushing and maiming dozens in what France’s president called a terrorist assault.” Timing of these type incidents aren’t happenstance. Thousands were celebrating Bastille Day on Nice’s Promenade des Anglais when a large lorry managed to get through protective barricades unobstructed. Why was security lax? Was poor planning responsible or something more diabolical involved? Reportedly a driver of Tunisian origin identified as Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel rammed celebrants at high speed, allegedly shooting at the same time, managing to kill or injure over 200 before police lethally shot him. Dead men tell no tales. An identity card supposedly found in the lorry ID’d him. Why would an assailant leave one behind incriminating himself? Was the driver alone responsible for what happened or were others involved? Some reports indicated two assailants. Others said the driver opened fire before being shot and killed. French President Francois Hollande automatically blamed “Islamic terrorism,” extending a state of emergency another three months beyond its scheduled July 26 expiration date. Major media reports left unexplained how a driver/gunman, alone or with help, managed to commit a massacre virtually unobstructed – police lethally shooting him only after over 200 celebrants were dead or wounded. Police killed a single assailant. Multiple ones were likely involved – if a state-sponsored false flag, security forces perhaps responsible for lethal shootings, the lorry driver unable to do both at the same time. These type incidents can’t be pulled off single-handedly. Reports indicated an individual managed to drive a reported 25-ton lorry, zigzagging for some distance into crowds of people, killing and injuring scores by ramming and shooting before being stopped. All we know is what authorities say and media scoundrels repeat without due diligence checking. No group so far claimed responsibility. Manufactured reports could name one at any time. When one news story blocks out all others, be wary. Fear-mongering again rages, enlisting public support […]
