ISIS: Nice Attack Inspired by Palestinian Terror

The world was shocked and horrified by last week's terror attack in Nice, France, in which a supporter of ISIS killed 85 and injured hundreds by plowing a truck into Bastille Day crowds. But, JNS notes, the attack was inspired by the ongoing car-ramming attacks carried out against Israelis by Palestinian terrorists:

The Islamic State supporter considered the ramming an "imported terrorism tactic" borrowed from Palestinian terrorists, writing about it on an online messaging forum.

"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," the supporter wrote, according to MEMRI. "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."
