Run them over with your cars, ISIS had said in a 2014 video


Paris, July 15: There are weapons and cars available and targets ready to be hit. Kill them spit in their faces and run them over with your cars. This was a message put out in 2014 by an ISIS operative while making a call for all lone wolves to kill Americans and the French.

The attack today at NICE is horrifically similar to the ISIS' message posted in 2014. Not just the ISIS, but even the al-Qaeda had put out global calls to kill Westerners with cars. Today at NICE in France, a 31 year old man of Tunisian origin had killed 80 persons by running them over with his 25 tonne truck. [Live: France Terror Attack]


Vehicles as weapons:

The ISIS and the al-Qaeda had both made calls to use vehicles as weapons against the French and Americans. In 2014 September, Abu Muhammad al-Adnani had instructed ISIS loyalists to use vehicles, rocks or knives to slaughter people who he referred to as infidels.

His exact words were, "If you are not able to find an IED or a bullet, then single out the disbelieving American, Frenchman, or any of their allies. Smash his head with a rock, or slaughter him with a knife, or run him over with your car, or throw him down from a high place, or choke him, or poison him."

He further went on to say that if anyone is unable to come to Iraq or Syria, then then pledge allegiance in your place, pledge allegiance in France," operate within France." Further it was stated, "there are weapons and cars available and targets ready to be hit.Kill them and spit in their faces and run over them with your cars."

The al-Qaeda too had in its magazine Inspire referred to trucks as the ultimate mowing machines. "The idea is to use a pickup truck as a mowing machine, not to mow grass but mow down the enemies of Allah," the article also stated.
