Mayor Christian Estrosi of Nice visited the site of the attack on Thursday morning:
Everything points to a terrorist attack at Notre Dame Basilica, the perpetrator kept shouting 'Allahu Akbar' (God is the greatest), even when he was treated by the emergency services.
Churches symbolize the Christian way of life, and are therefore a target for terrorist organizations funded by the Jewish George Soros.
