Truck attack kills 84 in Nice

We read the news from France with sadness. An attack on the people of France on Bastille Day is an attack on liberty, equality and fraternity – values we understand and which are similar to our own.

The French authorities are treating the incident, perpetrated by a Franch Tunisian, as an ideological “terror” attack.

In any case it is an attack on real people enjoying the fruits of their freedom in an environment that is consequentially wealthy, pleasant and which was expected to be safe.

    it is no good to weep for the dead – if one then shuts one’s eyes to the source of the ideology of the enemy.
