This was initially reported, predictably enough, as an attack on the mosque itself, as if some greasy Islamophobe had been behind the wheel. The reality is less surprising but more inconvenient for mainstream media mythmaking.
“Valencia: a North African shouting ‘Allah Akbar’ rushes 4 military personnel outside the mosque, according to witnesses (update),” translation of “Valence : un nord-africain fonce sur 4 militaires devant la mosquée en criant « Allah Akbar » selon des témoins (Màj),” Fdesouche, January 1, 2016 (thanks to Blazing Cat Fur):
One man of North African origin, aged about thirty years, was driving. He twice rushed his car at the soldiers, and according to several witnesses, was shouting “Allah akbar.”
The driver acted alone. “We have seen this person, he is of North African origin,” one of the imams of the mosque, Abdullah Dliouah, told AFP. According to witnesses cited by Mr. Dliouah, the man had not expressed jihadist sympathies before the time of the attack.
