The slaying of at least one police officer and the wounding of two others by an ISIS gunman in Paris on Thursday was yet another tragedy for France.
The murder of 84 people and wounding of hundreds more in Nice on Thursday is a passing of the torch. It is the third major terrorist attack against France in a year and a half, after the massacres at Charlie Hebdo and the Stade de France, and the tenth one total. The 9/11 era is over: today, France is ground zero. It is caught in a perfect storm of radical Islam’s loathing, envy, and opportunity.
