Yesterday two jihadis armed with knives crashed a Catholic Mass in Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray near Rouen. According to The Daily Mail they took hostages, stabbed and beheaded Jacques Hamel (photo above), an 84 year old priest, then slashed a nun into critical condition before French police officers shot them to death as they exited the edifice.
This happened inside a church. A French church. A Catholic church. During mass. Here’s some material from the report published by The Daily Mail:
Francois Hollande says France is at war with ISIS after two Islamist knifemen butchered a French priest and left a nun fighting for her life before they were both shot dead by police in Normandy.
One of the men who stormed into the church in Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray near Rouen during mass was a local man, who was being monitored by electronic tag after being jailed for trying to join fanatics in Syria.
Ah, the great and brave Monsieur Hollande. What a gift to Islam he is.
How many jihad attacks have we seen both in Europe and in the United States where the jihadis are under police surveillance of some kind or another? God in Heaven above, can no one on Earth figure out that surveillance is not going to stop them from killing and maiming non-Muslims?
The useless, spineless French President Monsieur Francois Hollande continues to misunderstand the problem. The problem is not ISIS. The problem is Islam. You can continue this global Whac-a-Mole game unto eternity and beat down each new jihad group as it emerges. The vanquished faction will quickly be replaced by another, operating under a different name in a different place.
Because it’s all Islam. That’s all it is. Had our leaders here and in the Old World not allowed the 7th century cancer to spread onto the shores of Western Civilization we would not be at this terrible place.
