Was Nice truck driver an Islamic jihadist or not?

The actions of the Nice killer are totally understandable as jihad – not in spite of his history of apparently un-Muslim behaviour (alcohol, drugs, wife-beating, not attending a mosque, petty crime, active bi-sexuality), but because of his history.

It’s possible he was undertaking violent jihad – “fighting in Allah’s cause” – to earn redemption for his unbearable burden of earthly sins, which could otherwise condemn him to hell for eternity.

Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel (note his first name) reportedly cried “Allahu Akbar” as he carried out his jihad attack. It’s said he recently took up mosque attendance. It could well be that he was depressed with guilt for his messed up earthly life, and fearful for the likely form of his after-life. So his Muslim culture drew him to the mosque to confirm that undertaking martyrdom through jihad would free him from eternal damnation. He may have been seeking assurance at the mosque that he had all the details of the routine right.

How does this work? The conventional Muslim belief is that the souls of the dead enter hell, with the saved passing through (or over) quickly and unimpeded, whereas those who have sinned undergo hellish torment for a time – for eternity for the worst sinners.

Martyrdom through violent jihad offers a direct route to paradise, bypassing Islam’s hell. The martyrs apparently believe that they will enter paradise instantly, having earned Allah’s redemption, when the first drop of their martyr’s blood is spilled and even while their earthly heart is still beating.

So, not only are non-devout Muslims plausible jihadists. For some, it’s their lifetime of dissolute non-observance that drives them to violent jihad.

  1. Fuck the driver,i live in England so by law i cant own a handgun since a very sketchy school shooting,although i have shot alot probably 15,000rounds not all at a range and i can tell you police officers train monthly like 500-1000 rounds so why cant there police officers all with sidearms prob 9×19 glocks,why couldn’t they shoot one man in a wagon.
    They put shitloads of shots in that screen n not on target (terrorists head) also tyres not shot out.
    Now i look at things objectively and critically well as much as i can and the false flag terrorist is just something we have to work through but call out stuff that makes no sense.
    O its a crazy world

  2. Maybe they don’t have stingers there. that puncture the tyres, we should send our police over there to show them how to deploy a stinger.im sure with the fantastic Europol / interpol we have, they wont mind us showing them what we use it for. I thought the police forces worked together, maybe I’m wrong

  3. Brothers and sisters of patriotic counterstrike: NICE incident bears the aroma of a NATO “Gladio B” type black op provocateur-driven, patsy-activated, false flag. So, as you might come to see, we are facing not only an islamic jihadist infiltration, but top cover given that infiltration by your elected (selected) officials, by the Powers that Should Not Be, also known as the puppeteers. They have a perverted (like the pedophiles most of them are) interest in the complete undermining of western culture. Let us all find the strength to put he proper heat on our elected and unelected officials.

  4. This article’s premise is a perceptive take by the writer. As a previous student of theology and an analyst by trade, it is apparent to me that many “wayward” Muslims comprise a target-rich environment for jihadists as well as faux-jihadist provocateurs (of which there are many). Guilt is the trigger, redemption from a dissolute life is the goal; an act of terror is personal atonement. And western Populations are paying the price.
