The West is in the midst of a world war with militant Islam, whether its weak-willed leaders recognize it or not. NATO nations, American allies like India, and even the United States itself have all been hit in attacks totaling more deaths than Pearl Harbor.
Yet another terrorist attack has occurred in Europe. Yet again the militant, radical Islamic menace has massacred innocent Frenchmen on French soil. On Thursday evening in Nice, a presumably Muslim attacker — ISIS supporters have celebrated the attack — drove a lorry into a crowd celebrating Bastille Day.
“The West is in the midst of a world war with militant Islam, whether its weak-willed leaders recognize it or not.”
At least 77 people are dead.
Nice native Wassim Bouhlel told The Associated Press that a man emerged from the truck with a gun and began shooting. “There was carnage on the road,” Bouhlel said. “Bodies everywhere,” he added.
There was “a lot of blood and, without a doubt, many injured,” reported a journalist with the Nice Matin newspaper.
“We saw people hit and bits of debris flying around,” said an Agence France-Presse reporter.

Muslim attacks in and against the West are beginning to occur with disturbing regularity. September 11, 2001, New York, U.S.A. — 2,996 dead, over 6,000 wounded. March, 2004 — Madrid, Spain, 192 dead, 2000 wounded. July, 2005, London, U.K. — 56 dead, 700 wounded. November, 2009, Fort Hood, U.S.A. — 13 dead, 29 wounded.
April, 2013, Boston, U.S.A. — 3 dead, over 180 wounded. January, 2015, Paris, France — 20 dead, 22 wounded. November, 2015, Paris, France — 137 dead, 368 wounded. December, 2015, San Bernardino, U.S.A. — 14 dead and 22 wounded. March, 2016, Brussels, Belgium — 35 dead, 330 wounded. June, 2016, Orlando, U.S.A. — 49 dead, 53 wounded.
Since 2001, well over 3,000 innocent Westerners have been murdered at the hands of militant Islam. These are just the major attacks in the West, to say nothing of the attacks on Westerners which have occurred in Africa and elsewhere.
But that is just the West. Globally, in June, 2016, there were over 238 Islamic terrorist attacks alone — including 43 suicide bombings — in over 30 countries, killing over 2,000 people and injuring over 2,000 more of all nationalities, races, and creeds.

Equally as disturbing are the proclamations of shock and sadness from the politically correct powers-that-be which inevitably follow.
Despite the chorus of warning from conservatives and cultural realists, despite their clear cultural incompatibility, and despite even the warning of ISIS itself that it would use the flow of migrants as a tool of war, the leaders of Western Europe eagerly encouraged the so-called refugees to come to Europe.
Despite polls showing Muslims overwhelmingly holding views that the average Westerner would find reprehensible, despite surveys showing most British Muslims wouldn’t report on a terrorist friend or family member, and despite the veritable army of European-born, allegedly assimilated Muslims who flocked to join ISIS, the useful idiots of Europe welcomed them with open arms.
Like a school of trout asking a den of bears to go for a swim, the brain-dead bleeding hearts of Europe opened the door to their once-great civilization and let in a fifth column bent on its destruction.
One worries and weeps — one shudders and shakes with rage at the thought of Europe’s future. It may very well be too late.
But it is not too late for the U.S. Though the Barack Obamas and Hillary Clintons of the country would have us open the floodgates to the deluge currently drowning Europe, there is still time to prevent such a calamity from occurring.
Well over 1,000 so-called refugees have already arrived in the U.S. Another 9,000 are scheduled to be cleared for resettlement by October. But if the American people make their voices heard, it can stop there.
The American people shouldn’t have to worry about an Islamic terror attack on celebrations at which celebration masks confusion, and fireworks disguise gun shots. They shouldn’t have to worry about a rape epidemic, or significant increases in crime.
The leaders of Europe allowed their foreign enemies to become their domestic enemies — the United States does not have to make the same mistake.
