2 Suspects Shot Dead After Killing Priest in French Church



Rev. Father Jacques Hamel

Rev. Father Jacques Hamel

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, DailyMail reports.

The attackers held the priest, Jacques Hamel, believed to be 86, two nuns and two parishioners hostage after they raided the Catholic church at Saint Etienne du Rouvray, Normandy at 9.45AM local time.

According to a local, a third nun escaped the attack and raised alarm.

Reports say one of the hostages is in critical condition at the hospital and one of the attackers was “dressed in Islamic clothing”.

The attackers held the hostages for about one hour before they were gunned down by police.

Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby condemning the attack said: “Evil attacks the weakest, denies truth and love, is defeated through Jesus Christ. Pray for France, for victims, for their communities.”

Authorities are searching the building for explosives.

The Vatican has described the attack as a “barbarous killing” made even worse as it was carried out in a “sacred place”.

French authorities are investigating the incident as a terrorist attack being that they received intel about plots to attack churches since April last year.

    But why all these? Some one has to speak to these knife wielding creatures!
    Who do they respect and obey?
    Why so much violence in the face of silent notable Muslims! Some thing seems to be very wrong somewhere…….

    They can’t annihilate people who don’t look or worship like them.

      Indeed, we need to invite them over for tea and biscuits with a ‘respected elder’ and talk it out, let’s hug a jihadi, that’ll fix it. Clearly they’re only doing these things because they were bullied psychiatric loners who didn’t get enough cuddles. We need to do more to take more refugees and do more to assimilate them and make them welcome, give them nicer houses and more benefits or something. Get Jeremy Corbyn in there to fix it, he’s the man!

      Your retarded attempt at sarcasm misses Nene+’s point: they will only listen to people that they regard and obey. Which is true(to a fair extent) as they are a hierarchical and submissive religion.

      @K, you’re the one who missed it, their ‘respected elder’ & our vainglorious leader Jeremy, should have a chitchat. Jeremy suggested this at the time of the Syria air strike debate but no one listens to him (sigh).
      This isn’t sarcasm, there’s way too much right wing hatred on this about deporting and getting rid of Muslims etc feuling islamophia! Balance is needed! Love conquers all.

    Every Muslim with an atom of conscience should bow their heads in shame. Muslims causing havoc since 1900; and please nobody should come with the religion of peace nonsense ; it’s now a cliche.
    Christians should rise up and defend the body of Christ as nobody has the monopoly of violence .

      Nobody does but we shouldn’t resort to it. I’m just numb…a priest…a priest! 86!

      Unless the Lord watches over the city,the guards stand watch in vain. PS 127:1b (NIV) Christians ought to rise up in prayer for the nations of the world. We have kept silent as a body for too long because but ‘Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this vast army. For the battle is not yours, but God’s. 2 Chronicles 20:15b (NIV)

      Pray for France, Pray for the World.

    May the soul of Father Jacques rest in peace. Now do you see why Trump wants to place a ban on Muslims? Why is it always muslims terrorizing defenceless people?Why, why, why?

      Sadly, Donald Trump’s argument is beginning to make sense to me. Rest in peace Fr. Europe needs to reconsider its stance on refugee issue, guess it is too late now as most of them are already here.

    Why is security so lax in France? The terrorists were known to the authorities, yet they were roaming around freely. Utterly sad.

      You won’t believe but for every true French citizen are 5 refugees at least in Paris. These refugees have basically almost taken over. What hurts the most is that they seem to have some kind of hate for the French which is weird. This is considering you are in their country and they offer you so many benefits!!!

    Only solution is to deport Muslims. Start now before its too late! Hurry!

      They should start with deporting recent refugees. I wonder why Europe opened their borders to them. It beats me. France should seriously consider frexit .

    The earlier the Christian Countries in Europe start deporting all their refugees the better and safer the lives will be.
    Those people are there to take over your countries and you better wake up or else, you’ll find yourself just like Turkey, Iran and so on. these were Christian countries before but this evil and satanic folks violently took over the countries because Christians refuse to do something.

    I still remember the placards on the streets of London “…immigrants you are welcome.” I shook my head then as i still do now because those European folks sure don’t know what they have got into. An African proverb tells us that you don’t cuddle an adder.

    That picture was one of the most glaring proofs i have that Europeans et al are uninformed of world events and realities, because i found it hard understanding such naivety, not with what the rest of the world has been experiencing!
