American Muslim organizations have consistently and repeatedly condemned terrorism in all its forms.

The Islamic Circle of North America also strongly condemns the terrorist attack in Nice, France.

Safety to life is a basic human right and no one should have the right to be able to take that away."

Bastille Day

At least 84 people, many children -- and leaving scores injured in the terrorist attack on Bastille Day; 14th of July, the day commemorating the French Revolution of 1789, the most important French National Holiday.

What happened? During celebration of the French National Holiday, around 11 PM, a speeding truck plowed into a crowd of thousands who were watching the fireworks along the Mediterranean Boulevard Anglais. The driver of the truck, was simultaneously and indiscriminately shooting into the crowd. He was able to run for 2 kilometers before being stopped by police, which instantly shot and killed him.
