The terrorist who murdered 84 innocent men, women and children in Nice was an activist with the far-left ‘No Borders’ organisation. The shocking revelation was made by Giovanni Toti, governor of Liguria after Italian police confirmed that Mohamed Bouhel had been seen with the thuggish left-wing militants during border clashes in the town of Ventimiglia last year.
Police are now checking videos uploaded by No Borders activists of sit-ins and rallies in Ventimiglia, looking for clues as to the associates of the man who pledged allegiance to ISIS and slaughtered 84 people earlier this month.
Italian police have confirmed that they already identified the terrorist as having been in Ventimiglia during clashes in June last year. The authorities are looking into contacts Mr. Bouhlel has in Italy. The Tunisian was stopped and identified in a routine check just metres from Ponte San Ludovico, where left wing activists were demanding Europe open its borders.
Last year it emerged that a No Borders activist stationed at Ponte San Ludovico, in Ventimiglia, was gang raped by African migrants but kept quiet about it for a month. Her fellow Marxist protesters convinced her not to report the attack, as they feared it would set back their crazed dream of a borderless world.
The headline of the website of No Borders Ventimiglia reads: “From Lampedusa to Calais we will not go back!” and condemns the fact that migrants are “not free to move around Europe in search of a better life”.
The website states that the group’s goal is for people to be allowed to live wherever they choose. The activists say that Europe should not distinguish between “economic migrants” and “refugees”, and instead provide “basic needs” of “earnings, a house and healthcare” to everyone who wants to come.
It is not known if No Borders is funded by grant-making foundations financed by George Soros, but the pro-migrant groups which are funded by him all contribute to the fevered pro-immigration atmosphere on the far-left, of which ‘No Borders’ is a respected part. The ultra-left network sees migrants in general, and Muslim migrants in particular, as ideal ‘cannon-fodder’ for their ‘revolution’.
The news of the ISIS terrorist’s links to open borders activism has already inflamed the political debate in Italy. Liguria governor Giovanni Toti, wrote on Facebook: “The Nice killer was in Ventimiglia at a demonstration in favour of migrants. Does anyone still defend the indiscriminate reception?”
The news that Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhel was involved in open borders activism contradicts the narrative repeated by Western journalists and politicians in the wake of an onslaught of Islamic terror attacks in Europe.
Former Greek finance minister, Yanis Varoufakis, said that closed borders in Europe would fuel more terrorism, while German Chancellor Angela Merkel declared that ISIS’ goal is to break down Europeans’ “willingness and openness” to take in millions of migrants.
Writing for the European Council of Foreign Relations, Mattia Toaldo claimed that: “European xenophobes and the so-called Islamic State have a shared goal: stopping the migration of Muslims to Europe”. Similarly, an article in the Independent this week argued that Angela Merkel’s “open-door immigration approach” was the best way to protect the country from terror attacks. Germany this month saw four horrific attacks in the space of a week, three of which were done by recent migrants.
One of the most interesting features of this affair is the deafening silence from the liberal mainstream media. Needless to say, if a ‘neo-Nazi extremists’ who carried out a terrorist attack turned out to have attended demonstrations organised by a popular patriotic political party, the media would be full of outrage about it coupled with demands to ban the party involved.
But when it’s far-left organisations harbouring and working with Islamist killers, nothing is said about it. And this isn’t the first time it has happened.
One of the two men who carried out the ritual slaughter of off-duty British soldier Lee Rigby, Michael Adebolajo, had been a speaker (left) at a demonstration by the far-left street gang Unite Against Fascism at Harrow Central Mosque on 11 September 2009, the eighth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks in New York.
