Horror in French Church

preist

There is no denying that war had been declared on western civilization. The French who have welcomed so many refugees to their country are now seeing the true price that must be paid when bringing radicalized Muslims into your home and welcoming them with open arms. Unfortunately these horrors will continue as long as we allow them.

ISIS knifemen forced French priest to kneel and filmed themselves slitting his throat in horror church attack

The terrorists also performed a ‘sermon’ in Arabic as terrified parishioners fled for their lives, says a nun who escaped the attack.

The ISIS terrorists who carried out the France church attack forced an elderly parish priest to kneel before filming themselves slitting his throat, it has emerged.

Father Jacques Hamel, 85, was made to get to his knees before he was brutally butchered at the Church of the Gambetta in Normandy today, says a nun who escaped the attack.

His two murderers – one of whom has been named locally as 19-year-old Adel Kermich – captured the slaying on a mobile phone, according to Sister Danielle, who was one of several worshippers taken hostage during morning mass.

They then performed a ‘sermon’ around the altar in Arabic – as armed cops rushed to the scene and terrified members of the congregation fled for their lives.

Before his death, Father Hamel courageously tried to defend his parishioners, says the distraught nun, who raised the alarm after fleeing the church.

“They [the terrorists] forced him to kneel and he tried to defend himself and that is how the drama started,” she told RMC radio this afternoon.

Father Hamel’s murderers captured the sickening assault on video, says a nun who was held hostage

Speaking to BFM TV, she added that the two men ‘recorded themselves’ carrying out the murder and did ‘a sort of sermon around the altar in Arabic’.

“It’s a horror,” she said of the attack, which ended in the knifemen being shot dead by police after running out of the church shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’.

Sister Danielle said she fled the parish church in Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray, near the northern city of Rouen, as one of the terrorists was slitting the priest’s throat. She then raised the alarm by stopping a passing motorist.

Describing the gruesome attack, the nun said: “Everyone was saying, ‘Just stop, you don’t understand what you are doing.’ But it had no effect.

“They forced us to get on our knees and he [Father Hamel] wanted to defend us. That’s when the violence started.

“Me, I realised the moment he started attacking Jacques, when he put him on his knees and almost made him fall over.

“It was then that I was able to escape. I got out quickly. They were busy attacking him with the knife, so they didn’t see me leaving.

“Everybody screamed. They recorded what they were doing. It was like a prayer, a sermon at the altar in Arabic.”

France priest killer was terrorist on electronic tag curfew living with his parents

The assailants, who were both on a terrorist watch-list, were shot dead by balaclava-wearing BRI police commandos after sprinting out of the church.

Witnesses say they heard the men scream ‘Allahu Akbar’ as they came out of the building. One was described as bearded and wearing a Muslim skullcap.

Bomb disposal units were later sent into the church to check for explosives.

This afternoon, French police arrested a teenager, known only as ‘HB’, in connection with the attack after raiding his home in the town following the church rampage.

Photos of the arrest show the 17-year-old boy – believed to be related to one of the suspects – being guided to a police car, with a piece of black fabric over his head.

The Islamic State has claimed responsibility for the shocking attack, which saw four people taken hostage – one of whom is fighting for their life in hospital.

These hostages, who are yet to be identified, were also forced to kneel at the altar by their captors, before one of them – believed to be a second nun – was gravely injured.

Speaking at the scene of the killing in Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray today, President Francois Hollande said the terror group had declared war on France.

Describing the grisly slaying as a ‘cowardly assassination’, he added that the state should ‘use all its means’ within the law to fight ISIS.

The president also called the killing a ‘dreadful terrorist attack’ and told reporters the attackers had pledge allegiance to the militant group.

“The threat remains very high,” Hollande said.

The ISIS news agency Amaq confirmed two of its ‘soldiers’ were involved.

The attack was the latest in a string of deadly assaults, including the mass killing in Nice, southern France, on Bastille Day 12 days ago, and four incidents in Germany.

The most recent of these was a suicide bombing at a concert in Ansbach on Sunday.

During today’s assault, the two knifeman stormed the church through a rear door during morning mass, before taking a number of hostages, eyewitnesses say.

They then filmed themselves forcing Father Hamel to kneel before butchering him with a blade – as anti-terror cops surrounded the building.

The terrorists, who also made two nuns and two worshippers kneel on the ground, were later shot dead by police after emerging into the courtyard outside.

As bomb squad officers searched the church for possible booby-traps, one member of the congregation was rushed to hospital ‘between life and death’.

Their current condition is unclear. Another worshipper was said to have been less severely hurt.

The body of Father Hamel – who was ordained in 1958 – was found inside the church after the slaying.

Mourners have since paid tribute to the much-loved elderly priest, who was an assistant at the church and only taking mass because the parish priest was away on holiday.

Many of them have posted pictures of him on Twitter, showing him wearing his Catholic robes.

Resident Eulalie Garcia, who works in a beauty parlour next to the church, said Father Hamel was ‘treasured’ by all those who knew him.

She said: “My family has lived here for 35 years. He was someone who was treasured by the community.”

The Vatican described the priest’s killing as ‘barbarous’, made even worse because it was carried out in a ‘sacred place’.

Earlier today, it emerged that the Church of the Gambetta was on the ‘kill list’ of a suspected ISIS terrorist arrested last year.

Sid Ahmed Ghlam, 24, was arrested last April when he called an ambulance in Paris after shooting himself in the leg.

Investigators believe he was a terrorist planning ‘imminent attacks’ in France on the instructions of ISIS leaders.

They found the body of a woman in his car along with an arsenal of weapons including Kalashnikovs and a police-issue pistol.

Documents found at his flat suggested he was in contact with a Frenchman in Syria who had told him to carry out attacks on churches.

These included the Sacre-Couer in Paris and churches including the one in Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray targeted yesterday.

Ghlam, an Algerian student, is currently in prison awaiting trial for murder, attempted murder and terrorism offences.

There is no suggestion he was involved in carrying out today’s attack.

It also earlier emerged that one of the attackers was a convicted terrorist who was meant to be living with his parents with an electronic tag on his ankle.

Kermich was arrested in Geneva last year after being expelled from Turkey for trying to join ISIS in Syria for the second time.

He was convicted of terrorist offences in France and sent to jail before being freed in March on a tag.

Prosecutors had opposed his release but were overruled by judges, according to local reports.

 The conditions of his release included living with his parents, wearing a tag and reporting to his local police station.

But crucially he was only subject to a curfew between 12.30pm and 8.30am – allowing him to carry out this morning’s attack, which took place between 9.45am and 11am.

It is understood Kermich was radicalised after the Charlie Hebdo killings in Paris in January last year.

He was also an associate of Maxime Hauchard, a French jihadist who appeared in an ISIS execution video of U.S aid worker Peter Kassig.

Hauchard, now known as Abu Abdullah al-Faransi, regularly worshipped at a mosque in Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray.

He travelled to Syria in August 2013 and is still believed to be in the war-torn region.

Both Kermich and the other terrorist who carried out today’s attack were on an anti-terrorist ‘S’ watch-list compiled by French officials.

Questions will now be asked about how the attackers was able to carry out the murder despite being known to the authorities.

France’s security services have been regularly criticised for the way they allow known terrorists their freedom after being found guilty of crimes.

The hostages were taken at the Church of the Gambetta in Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray

Earlier today, Prime Minister Theresa May offered her ‘condolences to the French people following the sickening attack in Northern France this morning’.

She said it was important to stand ‘shoulder to shoulder with France’.

She said: “We offer them every support we have in dealing with this issue and this threat that they, and the rest of us, are facing.

“They are trying to destroy our way of life. They are trying to destroy our values. We have shared values and those values will win through and the terrorists will not win.”

Meanwhile, French Prime Minister Manuel Valls described the attack as ‘barbaric’, adding: “We will stand together.”

Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve, who visited the scene, said he felt ‘horror at this barbarity and great solidarity with all Catholics in France in this moment of trial’.

And former PM Jean-Pierre Raffarin tweeted: “Everything is being done to trigger a war of religions”.

Pope Francis also spoke out after this morning’s murder, saying he shared the “sorry and horror” felt over the “barbaric” terror attack.

Meanwhile, the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby urged people to “Pray for France, for victims, for their communities.”

And confirming Father Hamel’s death, the Archbishop of Rouen, Dominique Lebrun, said: “I cry to God with all men of good will.

“The only arms which the Catholic Church can take up are prayer and brotherhood between men.”

The Archbishop cut short a visit to Poland to return to his diocese, The investigation into the killing is being carried out by the anti-terrorist unit of the Paris prosecutor’s office.

It is the same team probing links between ISIS and the Bastille Day attack in Nice.

Seven people remain in custody suspected of helping Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel carry out the truck massacre.

  1. All of Europe…a continent of sheep. “The only arms which the Catholic Church can take up are prayer and brotherhood between men.” How sad but true!

    1. I just read an article that there was no blood on the sword/machete .if you’re paying attention the Muslim attacks are increasing all over they call it Problem , Reaction. Solution , in the CIA & Israel mossad moto is victory through deception.

      1. Seems to me that if a group as intelligent as the Mossad were out to fake a beheading, blood would be the 1st prop they’d attend to…no?

    2. Actually what the Priest said was not true..Maybe for him as he was a Priest.R.I.P. Father!!!…Our Catechism under self Defense says..”We not only have a right to Defend our lives, We have a Duty to defend our lives our families and our Neighbors”…This is the Catholic Dogma of Our Faith..We have the Duty to Defend our lives Our Families and Our Neighbors ..Read your Catechism Catholics!!!

  2. Chip, I don’t know how much you know about Catholic teachings, nor do I know what this Archbishop meant, but Catholic teaching does not teach that they are unable to defend themselves. We are allowed to use firearms or whatever, in our defense and the defense of others. Catholics are not passivists as are some religions. Just to set the record straight.

    1. I confess Bob…I’m a believer in the Ann “Joan of Arc” – bacon-filled-Koran-burning- Barnhardt flavor of Catholicism…Her best youtube was of her in a lovely dress with a pink AR providing explicit directions to her home to the jihadists that had threatened her life over the Koran-burning. Something about wanting to try out the new “tactical defense” rounds. My kind of girl…my kind of Catholic!

  3. Liberal idiocracy at work: Kermiche, the first of the two attackers to have been named, was being monitored by police using an electronic ankle tag But the tag was deactivated for a few hours during the morning, leaving him free to slaughter the elderly priest.

  4. This is complete insanity. If the Pope were to call a “crusade” can you imagine the outcry from the liberals? Of course it won’t happen because the Judeo/Masons are the ones in control and they want this. Sadly France is no longer the eldest daughter of the church, instead she’s become a lapdog of the NWO and the Pope is doing the NWO’s bidding. We need a modern day Joan of ARC because the French men have been neutered to the point of not even being able to defend their country or their people
    . May Fr. Hamel rest in peace.

  5. China and Russia are laughing the ass off at how weak the west is; watching and waiting with patience as we implode.

    On another subject a judge considers John Hinckley, a Bush tool, to be released just in time to assassinate another president. Is anyone awake out there?

  6. This latest savagery sickened me. Not only because of the brutality and the age of the victim but he symbolized the West and Christianity. Not only that but because it took place in Normandy, France which has the distinct honor of remembering those brave Americans who stormed the beaches of Normandy during WWII to defeat another Evil Ideology, Nazism. I’m noticing a pattern here…”It’s always ‘after’.” Condolences and grief, weeping and grieving, honoring the victims, offering sympathy and support. Yet, where is the plan, what is actually being done to stop these atrocities? All I see are nations continuing to respond to attacks but don’t have any credible, workable solution(s) to stopping them. I am reminded of WWII (again) and how long it took the “civilized” world to ante up to the fact that Hitler was a madman and intent on murdering millions of human beings and that we all needed to come together to defeat this enemy. We had the naysayers back then and bureaucrats standing in the way the same as we do now. How long did it take for the world to finally find the resolve, formulate the plan and get going? Not until innocent people were being systematically targeted, tortured and murdered. The same as we have now. I am a fan of the Movie, The Matrix. Not because it’s an excellent movie but because I am beginning to see the merit (what this movie tells you) and that is we’re all being housed in a Matrix. We have a small umbrella of elites that are controlling everything. Not until we demand our elected leaders remove the blinders and realize we’re in a war will things change. Some of these leaders, by their rhetoric, their reluctance, their reticence , are actually empowering these savages to go out and take more lives. We have the United Nations and I emphasize the word “United”. “United in what?–United in Doing Nothing and this is a pattern that continues to play out. And yet this body could be doing something to stem the tide of terrorism. So, it’s boiling down to this–this is going to continue until there is a change in leadership. But in order to have a change in leadership the people actually need to want it and make it happen (vote the tyrants out). Until then it’s our responsibility to protect our own safety and well being. That’s the bottom line.

  7. Why does western civilization persist in using softer words to describe these butchers, rather than using the harshest words possible?

    There was no “sermon” performed; this was a human sacrifice. When someone kills a human being while calling to their god or goddess to witness and approve that murder, it is human sacrifice. If a coven of witches were to do exactly the same thing that these jihadis did (and that other jihadis do around the world nearly daily now), it would be labeled as such IMMEDIATELY, but the elites and media of western civilization protecting them.

    Theresa May: “They are trying to destroy our way of life. They are trying to destroy our values.” No, Prime Minister, they are GOING to destroy YOU, if you don’t clean out the nest of vipers in your country. But be sure to say only that these Muslim jihadis are trying to destroy something intangible – “way of life” – rather than something as tangible as their children – you wouldn’t want your people to be aware that they must prepare to defend themselves.

    Although I haven’t yet seen this in connection with this attack, we almost always read or hear that the Muslim butchers were chanting “Allahu Akbar” which the media insists on translating as “God is great.” Anyone who has read the Koran knows that Allah condones violence against non-Muslims. That would make Allah a different entity than God, who says “love one another” (Old Testament events notwithstanding). Why not translate it as “Allah is great”? Why avoid connecting the name of their deity with their actions, by instead connecting the name of our deity with their actions?

    And these are not tragedies; these are atrocities or travesties – “tragedy” is too mild and is generally used to describe deaths caused by natural disasters.

    If you listen and read with this strategy of the elites and media in mind, you will hear and see daily examples of these monsters being treated gently verbally (and in some cases, physically, as in the case of Obama releasing terrorists, and police in several countries not keeping tabs on known problem Muslims – some of whom have later committed mass murder).

    The elites of western civilization seem to be engaged in exterminating their own populations, God (NOT ALLAH) help us.

    Repose en paix, Pere Hamel.

    .

  8. I forgot to add to my post about using harsh language to describe these butchers, rather than softer language: This is not “insanity;” this is EVIL.

    One of Agatha Christie’s characters on being asked if she believed in evil, said (I’m paraphrasing) “Yes, I believe evil does exist. And we must recognize it and stop it, or we will go down to darkness.”

    And that’s where we are now.

  9. “Religion is regarded by the common people as true, by the wise as false, and by the rulers as useful.”

    The rulers are using this planned and orchestrated “clash of civilizations” to start WWIII and far, far too many people remain brainwashed. I certainly think the most likely cause of all the violence in Europe and the US is western intelligence agencies. Re: Operation Gladio…

    1. The Saudis were lopping heads and other appendages off, stoning people to death, and treating women far worse than they treated some of their livestock in the late 1950s – I know because that’s when I moved there.

      History tells us that the Muslims have been behaving violently for approximately 1,400 years, most of which cannot be blamed on any of America’s agencies.

  10. islam is the problem, it is the enemy and to end the war against non muslims means ending islam.

  11. Beware CAIR infesting the USA with its evil presence promulgating the ISLAM invasion of the USA. The cowards hide behind a shield provided by innocent non-Muslim USA lives. If CAIR was not owned and operated by cowards their headquarters nestled up against what would be innocent collateral damage would, instead, be in a structure far from other buildings just in case of anti-Islam terrorist attack.

    As the Palestinian fighting arm hides behind women and children the foul fiends with their CAIR scam/scheme fearfully place themselves behind the innocents they intend to immerse within their Islam cult.
