A Russian POV on the Nice Tragedy

There are more than 80 people dead, more than 100 injured. Reportedly, amongst the dead are Russian White émigrés from France, including a Reader at the Russian Orthodox parish in Nice, Igor Sheleshko, and two friends of parish rector Fr Andrei Yeliseyev. Twenty of the dead are parishioners at the local Russian parish; the number of dead and injured includes many children. May God grant rest to the departed and healing to the injured. What’s more, instead of an endless war with Russia, the West should struggle with their real enemies. Why do they show such absurd indulgence in the face of the growing momentum of resurgent Islamic extremism?
