Three people are dead following an Islamic terrorist attck in Nice, France.
A Muslim man screamed “Allahu Akbar” as he murdered the three people at the Notre-Dame church.
Police say that they wounded the killer, who is now in police custody.
President Emmanuel Macron has denounced the attack in a press conference after visiting the scene.
Fox News has the details of this disturbing terrorist attack:
One woman was reportedly decapitated and two other people were stabbed to death on Thursday following a knife attack at a church in the French city of Nice that also left several others wounded, according to multiple reports.
The suspect, believed to be acting alone, was injured during his arrest and was taken to a local area hospital, police said.
An investigation was opened into an attack by the French anti-terrorism prosecutor’s office, reports said. Images on French media showed the neighborhood locked down and surrounded by police and emergency vehicles.
Prime Minister Jean Castex said the country's threat level will be raised to its maximum after the attack. He also told the French National Assembly that the government's response to the attack would be firm and implacable.
Mayor Christian Estrosi suggested that the Thursday morning attack seemed to be terror-related, although a motive is unclear at this time. Estrosi said the attacker shouted “Allahu akbar!” -- or "God is most great" in Arabic -- repeatedly as police apprehended him and that “the meaning of his gesture left no doubt."
“Enough is enough,” Estrosi told local reporters, according to Reuters. “It’s time now for France to exonerate itself from the laws of peace in order to definitively wipe out Islamo-fascism from our territory.”
He added that two people were killed inside the city's Notre Dame Basilica and a third person who escaped to a nearby bar later died.
Thursday’s incident marked the third attack in France in less than two months since a terrorism trial opened in September related to the January 2015 killings at the satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo and a kosher supermarket.
The attack at the church also happened less than a half a mile from the site in 2016 where another attacker plowed a truck into a Bastille Day crowd, killing dozens.
Thursday also marked the Prophet Muhammed's birthday.
European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen was quick to condemn the “heinous” attack in France and pledged solidarity in Europe “in the face of barbarism and fanaticism.”
“I condemn the odious and brutal attack which has just taken place in Nice and am wholeheartedly with France. My thoughts are with the victims of this heinous act,” she said in a statement. “The whole of Europe stands in solidarity with France. We remain united and determined in the face of barbarism and fanaticism.”
The incident comes as France is currently under alert for Islamic extremist acts. It occurred nearly two weeks after a French middle school teacher, Samuel Paty, was beheaded by a man of Chechen origin near Paris.
While the threat of Islamic terrorism is mostly ignored by the mainstream media and democrats, it is a very real threat.
Let us not forget how soft Barack Obama and Joe Biden were on the subject.
Obama infamously refused to use the words "radical Islamic terrorist"
USA Today covered that story back in September of 2016, right before then-Republican-candidate Donald Trump became president:
President Obama fielded some difficult questions on his role as Commander in Chief during a town hall hosted by CNN's Jake Tapper on Wednesday night.
At one point, Gold Star mother Tina Houchins asked President Obama why he refuses to use the term "radical Islamic terrorist" to describe the Islamic State, Al-Qaeda and other terrorist organizations that have organized attacks against Americans.
"The truth of this matter is that this is an issue that has been sort of manufactured," Obama said.
Several political opponents, including Republican nominee Donald Trump, have criticized Obama for not using the term radical Islamic terrorism, and have said it indicates the president is soft on terrorism.
Obama said he objects to the term because the U.S. must be careful not to lump "murderers" in with billions of peaceful Muslims around the world. "These are people who kill children, kill Muslims, take sex slaves — there's no religious rationale that would justify in any way any of the things that they do," Obama said.
The president linked the phrase to "people aspiring to become president" and the "notion that somehow we'd start having religious tests" to determine who can enter the country and who enjoys protections under the Bill of Rights.
Obama denied Tapper's suggestion that he was talking about Trump, insisting he was referring to "a number of public figures" who use rhetoric that divides Americans.
