Why Jihadists Beheaded Fr. Jacques Hamels

In north-western France yesterday, in the Normandy town of Saint-Etienne-du Rouvray, Muslims stormed a church, took hostages and shouted “Daesh” while beheading 84-year-old Fr. Jacques Hamels.

While media outlets like The Telegraph are telling us that the attackers’ “motives are still unknown,” The Glazov Gang has a bit of a hunch as to what may have motivated the Jihadists to behead Fr. Hamels.

In response to this latest horrifying manifestation of Islamic terror, and to bring understanding to why Fr. Jacques Hamels had to suffer the terrifying death that he did, The Glazov Gang is running its special episode with Dawn Perlmutter, the Director of the Symbol Intelligence Group and one of the leading subject matter experts (SME) in symbols, symbolic methodologies, unfamiliar customs and ritualistic crimes.

Ms. Perlmutter discussed Why ISIS Beheads, taking us into the dark world of Jihad’s key tactic and signature.

Don’t miss it.

And make sure to watch Robert Spencer, the Director of JihadWatch.org, discuss Why a Muslim Woman Beheaded a Child in Moscow, focusing on how Gulchekhra Bobokulova insisted that Allah made her do it. Did he?
