Deja Vu, Again...

When an Arab terrorist plowed into me and dozens of others at a Jerusalem Bus Stop just over twenty years ago, it was probably a rather innovative genre of terror attacks. The first reaction of the police was:
"It must have been an accident."
 Now, the technique is well used, at least here in Israel. So we rarely hear, and certainly don't take seriously, the allegation that the killings and injuring were accidental.
The driver, who sources identified to Fox News as a 31-year-old Tunisian national, left a mile-long swath of carnage along the seaside walkway before police killed him in a shootout. French authorities did not hesitate to pronounce the attack, which began at 10:40 p.m. local time, an act of terrorism.
The vehicle driven by the terrorist that went over my foot was a small car, but the terrorist in Nice rented an enormous truck to attack innocent celebrants.

Fox News

When I was run over the terrorist and his car didn't go very far, but one woman was killed and over twenty injured. In Nice, the terrorist drove, zigzagging to do more damage, about two kilometers, over a mile. And the surviving injured are much more seriously injured than many of us were. A large truck does a lot more damage than a small car.

A refuah shleimah, complete recovery to the victims, Gd willing.
