MP's react to Nice Attack; still no Dutch victims
Both leaders of the coalition parties expressed their sympathy with the French to NOS. "What should have been a public holiday has become a day of Grief. Our thoughts go out to the victims and survivors", VVD leader Halbe Zijlstra said. PvdA leader Diederik Samsom added: "On the moment the French celebrated their motto liberty, equality, brotherhood, a terrorist drove over people, it is unbelievable." "With this attack on the eve of the French national holiday, the country was again hit in the heart", D66 leader Alexander Pechtold said, according to Het Parool. "How hard sometimes and how very powerless words can sound so close after such an atrocity, we do not bow to terror."
Wat een verschrikkelijke en laffe aanslag op Frankrijk. Wens slachtoffers, nabestaanden en het Franse volk veel sterkte toe. #Nice— Khadija Arib (@khadijaArib) July 15, 2016
SP leader Emile Roemer called it horrible to "be robbed of your freedom on the day you celebrate freedom", CDA leader Sybrand Buma called the attack barbaric. GroenLinks leader Jesse Klaver said that words feel powerless in the face of such cruel barbarism. PVV leader Geert Wilders again talked about war on Islam. "It will not stop until we close our borders to Islam and de-Islamize our societies."

This is a war.— Geert Wilders (@geertwilderspvv) July 15, 2016
And it will not stop until we close our borders for Islam and de-Islamize our societies.
No more terror.
No more Islam!
