Siege comes amid shouts of “Allah Akbar”
ISIS savages stormed a Catholic Church in Normandy France during morning mass, beheading 84-year-old priest Jacques Hamel. Several worshippers, including two nuns, were taken hostage in the gruesome, bloody attack. An alert was initially issued by a third nun who escaped from the church. The UK’s Daily Mail carries a complete report.
Security sources confirmed one of the murderers was a convicted terrorist who was being monitored with an electronic tag, and inexplicably had been released by a court to serve his sentence living with his parents.
President Francois Hollande, whose country has suffered numerous deadly attacks, said ISIS had declared war on France. The time has come for France and the entire civilized world to declare war on ISIS — not refrigerators and air-conditioning which U. S. Secretary of State John Kerry says present a greater threat.
