At 1.30am local time this morning, a man driving a small Peugeot car tried to drive his vehicle into a 50-person crowd in Nîmes where the annual ‘Feria’ was taking place.

An investigation for attempted murder was opened by the local prosecutor and even though many witnesses reported the man was shouting Allahu Akbar, the police stated that it probably did not relate to terrorism. Two people were left wounded and have been taken to hospital.

The driver hit the barriers which prevent intrusions and therefore was only able to afflict slight injuries to two people who were in town for the annual feria of Nîmes.

The driver tried to flee after the event but bystanders were able to overpower him and rendered him to the police who arrived quickly at the scene.

Public prosecutor Mr Eric Maurel has referred in a statement to the press as the man being in “a state of relative mental confusion,” while dismissing terrorism as a motive.

It is the fourth incident in a week in France. On Sunday a man stabbed 7 people in Paris, on Monday a man stabbed 2 people in Paris and on Tuesday a man drove his car onto the tarmac of the Lyon airport after ramming the terminal doors.

According to French authorities, none of these acts were terrorist related.

OY VEY this had nothing at all to do with Islam, goyim!

OMG! I used to live there! The city is surrounded by Muslims. I am not in the least surprised that this happened. The Feria is a wine festival and gets pretty crazy. Still no reason to murder people, even if they are offended by partying in the streets.

How about the French government being in a state of denial.

Fk me, but there are some idiots in the world. Islam has been playing this game of conquer for 1400 yrs. Long before America was established or Bush was even born. Doesnt anyone use logic anymore? People need to educate themselves on Islam, its history and its agenda before making stupid comments. As for the terrorism thats "not terrorism", well, government bodies and authorities are a long time playing that game. Only a complete twat would fall for their bs.
