Islamists Attack French Church, “Behead” Priest

The Religion of Peace is on the march

(UK Daily Mail) An 86-year-old priest has been ‘beheaded’ by two ‘Islamic’ knifemen who cut his throat after bursting into a French church and taking nuns and worshippers hostage before being shot dead by police.

Five people including the priest, two nuns and two parishioners were held by assailants who raided the church in Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray, near the city of Rouen in Normandy at 9am.

The clergyman, named as Jacques Hamel, is believed to have been beheaded during the attack while another hostage is fighting for their life in hospital.

The two attackers have been ‘neutralised’ by elite marksmen in a dramatic police operation while the building is being searched for explosives.

At least one of the men was dressed in Islamic clothing, according to French media reports, and an anti-terrorist unit has already taken up the investigation.

One of the nuns present escaped when the Islamists broke in and called the authorities.

(UK Telegraph) Police have shot dead two men who took a priest and several others hostage at knifepoint at a church in north-western France.

The men shouted “Daesh” and cut the priest’s throat before being “neutralised,” police said. (snip)

French newspaper Le Figaro reported that the church was suspected to have been on a list of Catholic places of worship in the area around Paris drawn up as possible targets by Sid Ahmed Ghlam, an Algerian student arrested last year on suspicion of murdering a mother-of-one during a botched attempt to attack a church in Villejuif.

Le Point newspaper also reported that the yelled “Daesh”, an Arabic acronym for ISIS, per The Local.

Of course, many news outlets are suddenly unwilling to speculate, nor offer some of this information. Reuters fails to mention it. CNN fails. Same with the UK Guardian, along with a host of others, especially here in the U.S. They’re all also trotting out the “motives unknown” schtick. The NY Times has a tiny blurb, but does not that all these attacks are fueling a summer of anxiety. Oh, and that ISIS is totally losing, but that this will increase guerrilla attacks.

  • July 24th: suicide bombing attack in Germany, Syrian refugee, and a murderous rampage with a machete by a Syrian refugee
  • July 22nd: Munich mall shooting
  • July 18: train attack by a 17 year old “migrant”
  • July 14th: the Nice “Bastille Day” attack, 84 murdered, over 300 injured
  • March 22: Suicide attack at the Brussels airport and Maelbeek metro station
  • November 13, 2015: Attacks at the Bataclan concert hall, cafes and the national stadium, 130 killed and over 350 wounded.

This isn’t even counting all the attacks in Israel, Iraq, Pakistan, and Afghanistan. Yet, Islamist apologists on the Left do not seem to know the motive. Fortunately for European citizens, Jean-Claude Junker, the EU Commission President, has stated that open borders will stay, no matter how bad terrorism gets. It’s easy for the big wigs, they are usually protected. Rather makes Brits happy that they approved BreXit, so they can have their own protection policies.
