    Will France make any immigration changes due to the Muslim violence they've experienced?

    77 people have died and dozens injured during Bastille Day celebrations in Nice, France after a truck ran into a large crowd. ISIS claiming credit.

    ISIS terrorists left a scene of slaughter so inhumane it defied explanation at the Bataclan Theatre where 1500 had gathered to see rock heroes the Eagles of Death Metal, but their night of fun turned into a bloodbath at the hands of merciless ISIS gunmen.

    Muslim radical who was being investigated for terror ties stabbed a French police chief to death outside his home, then tortured the man's wife in front of their toddler son.

    The National Front will certainly become more popular. I don't understand the attacks on the French. They are not heavily involved militarily in the fight against ISIS.  Are they just soft targets?

    But I believe they are under EU immigration and refugee regulations, so not sure how that would work.

      I think you hit on a good point - the French are soft targets and an easy access point from the Middle East

    westernjournalism "Initial reports said a Twitter account that supports ISIS claimed the attacks were retribution for the death of a high profile Chechen ISIS leader."

    Saw the video of dead bodies everywhere, and police say the truck was full of explosives also. Made me wonder what Obama is going to say since France gun laws are tighter than the USA and it  still didn't stop this mass murder.


    "Category B – Subject to Authorization

    Category B includes anything shorter than 47cm, including handguns, or semi-automatic, with a removable magazine and a capacity larger than three rounds, and requires a sports shooting license to own. How do you get a sports shooting license? Be an active shooting club member and hit the range at least three times a year, go see a doctor every year who attests that you are physically and mentally capable of owning a firearm and prepare for some major paperwork."

    heavy.com "There was no immediate identification of the people or groups behind the attack, but ISIS created a hashtag applauding the attack that it was encouraging people to use, according to Site Intel Group, which monitors jihadists."

    Utterly inhumane - worse than an animal. There is more love in a Gorilla when the kid fell through the fence than these evil creatures who call themselves human to applaud or be happy about a such senseless and wanton destruction.

    As of Thu 14 Jul 2016 07:20:03 PM MST - "No terror group has claimed responsibility for the attack – yet." - dailystar.co.uk

      Does it really matter which Muslim extremist group claims credit for the attack?  The Islamic world and the Western world are experiencing tensions at a greater and more dangerous level as the days pass.  Why not separate them?

    In the REAL-World, Unfortunately you can NEVER Prevent Tragic Incidents like what happened in FRANCE Today even if you BAN ALL Global Visitors ~ President Clinton can't Prevent it, President Trump can't Prevent it (GOD Forbid President Trump), President Washington couldn't have Prevented it, etc etc ~ Racist ACTIVITY such as Banning Religious Groups can't Prevent it whether you BAN Catholics or Christians or Muslims or Buddhists the RESULT will be the SAME ~ Building WALLs and or REMOVING Barriers will NEVER Prevent it & POPPING your MOUTH Off with Irrational Incoherent Threats of Unconstitutional Behavior like "Delusional Donald" does constantly will ONLY Exacerbate the Situation ~

      Yet, President Bush did a pretty good job post 9/11. We were safe for the 8 years. I wonder why?

      I know everyone wants to inject American politics into this story, but the questions is about France and their politics.

    France is already more honest about the problem, with their socialist president after last year's Paris attacks calling out Muslim extremism.
    In contrast, the US President just calls it extremists, then readily calls the Tea Party extremists, as if wanting to limit the federal government to constitutional limits is similar to groups killing people for not belonging to their religion.

    I very much hope not. France is an experience country and more mature. If this is 50 years ago, it is totally possible for them to simply get rid of all Muslim, politicians and society were much less experience then the ones today, for example, during WW2 US locked up all Japanese, because they don't know which Japanese American could be an enemy amount their own. It is a very costly and less humane way of doing things. But today, with 50 years of knowledge gathering and experience, modern security expert, know methods that are less costly, more humane and more effective, so, extreme measure such as locking away all Muslim, is simply unnecessary, not to mention, such barbaric technique, could result in more Muslims joining ISIS and can be used by ISIS as recruitment propaganda. As long as the President, is willing to listen to specialist security agencies' advice (I don't know what agencies are in France) I don't think there will be increase violence towards Muslims.

    Currently, Christian extremists is more dangerous to the western world then Muslim ones. (despite no Christian extremists groups have yet militarized) This is because, the west has a Christian majority, thus, Christian extremists is a threat from within and with so many Christians, if a Christian extremists group did militarized and gain a foot hold, it would be overwhelming to know, which Christian is an extremists and which isn't and locking them all away, till we can figure it out, isn't an option either, because, too many Christians, there will be many leaks within our security agencies, because of all the double agents, that really serve the Christian extremists (same reason, why Obama didn't inform Pakistan when he decided to launch the operation to kill Osama)

    Muslim are still minority in the west and there are even fewer Muslim extremists, thus, very few threat from within, thus finding which Muslim is a Muslim extremist and flushing them out is much easier.

    Obama's current policy to deal with ISIS is seen positive result even if it is taking a long time, just keep doing it would be enough.

    What we need to do now, is through education end Christian extremism amount the next generation, so, when/if any Christian extremist group militarized, they will have recruitment problems and we have fewer worries of leaks from our own security agencies and make it easier for us to flush out Christian extremists trying to conduct terrorist attacks.

    They may not have any choice but to make changes, but it may be too late. Their liberal policies of allowing the Muslims to immigrate freely into their country is now biting them on the butt. It was brought out in the news today that much of the terrorism today is being conducted by citizens of the countries in which it occurs. This was used by a sympathizer as an argument against limitation of Muslim immigration, but this very argument is counterproductive and may backfire.
    What it should tell logical people is that Muslim citizens of, and immigrants to, the country are being trained as "home-grown" terrorists by ISIS. The more Muslim immigrants who are let in, the more green fodder ISIS will have. With social media recruiting, that only stands to reason that ISIS members don't even have to be inside the country to recruit. The country's own Muslim population, and perhaps other disgruntled bottom-feeding citizens, are much more vulnerable to social media than the country's legal citizens who have been there for generations.

      It seems as if the socio-economic standing combined with the religious radicalization are making Muslims very dangerous to the world.

    I really agree with Tamara Wilhite  as France is taking this as core problem with their socialist president and he is right to define that after last year's Paris attacks calling out Muslim extremism.
