On July 21st, Donald Trump gave his convention speech that the mainstream media labeled as too dark for many reasons, one of them being he spent too much time talking about the dangers of terrorism. In the six days beginning with Trump’s speech, 15 different Islamist terrorist attacks have killed 164 innocent people and wounded 405 others. Today’s attack in France is among the most heinous.
This time two ISIS attackers armed with knives have attacked a rural Catholic parish in the small Normandy town of Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray near Rouen.
According to multiple sources, not only has ISIS taken credit for the terrorist attack, the killers themselves were heard screaming “Allahu Akbar” and “DAESH” throughout the attack the country church
While 84-year-old Father Jacques Hamel of St. Etienne’s (St. Ethernan) Parish was celebrating early morning Mass when the two Islamic jihadists burst into the church taking the elderly priest, two nuns and two other worshippers hostage.
While Britain’s The Telegraph is reporting that the killers “cut the priest’s throat,” the Daily Mail took it a step further. As cited, Fr. Hamel’s throat was slashed to such a degree, he was essentially beheaded.
A yet to be publicly identified nun was hacked and slashed to such a degree, she was described as “fighting for life in hospital.”
Local police did respond to the hostage situation in force. As the murderous duo emerged running and screaming from St. Etienne’s, they were shot dead by police sharpshooters.
Prime Minister Manuel Valls expressed horror at what he called “a barbaric attack on a church,” adding: “The whole of France and all Catholics are wounded. We will stand together.”
Despite the stern words from the Prime Minister, the Daily Mail uncovered how hollow his words really are and how self-destructive and emasculated the French really are when it comes to effectively fighting radical Islamic terrorism:
IT COMES AS IT EMERGED THAT THE BUILDING WAS ONE OF A NUMBER OF CATHOLIC CHURCHES ON A TERRORIST ‘HIT LIST’ FOUND ON A SUSPECTED ISIS EXTREMIST LAST APRIL.
THERE ARE ALSO REPORTS THAT ONE OF THE ATTACKERS WAS A LOCAL RESIDENT WHO WAS UNDER ELECTRONIC TAG SURVEILLANCE HAVING BEEN JAILED IN FRANCE FOR TRYING TO TRAVEL TO SYRIA IN 2015. HIS BAIL TERMS ALLOWED HIM TO BE UNSUPERVISED BETWEEN 8.30AM AND 12.30PM – THE ATTACK HAPPENED BETWEEN 9AM AND 11.AM.
Despite the horrific attack today, and the 14 other horrific attacks in the past few days, on the first night of the Democratic Convention, ISIS was not mentioned. As of 7pm on day two of the DNC, the world’s most dangerous terrorist group has still not been mentioned by a single Democratic Party speaker. Shame on them!
May the unnamed Nun recover, and may the soul of Father Jacques Hamel rest in peace.
