    Default Notre Dame - Paris: It burns :(

    https://www.foxnews.com/world/massiv...edral-in-paris


    Would bet dollars to donuts this is terrorism. But because the church was under some renovations, I doubt the French Govt would EVER admit it was terrorists. God that church was beautiful. Just wonderful to be there.

    Was last there in 2017.

    Regardless of religious belief, it is a tragedy.
    I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.

    history will be forever altered. Nearly 1000 years right there... 800-something.

    That may be a sad thing but it is nothing compared to what the muslims in that country are all about doing to it in the future.
    When the muslims take over every Christian church , Jewish Synagogue will be destroyed and replaced by mosques.
    They will not allow historic buildings that do not glorify , Islam/Allah..-Tyr

    I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears and sweat…You ask, what is our policy? I say it is to wage war by land, sea, and air. War with all our might and with all the strength God has given us, and to wage war against a monstrous tyranny never surpassed in the dark and lamentable catalogue of human crime. That is our policy. You ask, what is our aim? I can answer in one word. It is victory. Victory at all costs - Victory in spite of all terrors - Victory, however long and hard the road may be, for without victory there is no survival.

    And then this. Sure makes you wonder, even if it was awhile back. It was obviously a target.

    ON FRIDAY Female Jihadi Jailed Over Attempted Car Bombing Outside Notre Dame Cathedral

    On Friday Islamic terrorists Inez Madani was jailed for eight years for her attempted car bombing outside of Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris.

    Madani was wounded with a knife in the belly of a police officer during the arrest in 2016.

    On Friday she was jailed for eight years in the attempted attack.

    Ya know dang well it was muslims, but will the frenchies have the balls to report it?

    My guess is no, they'll cover it up somehow because they're SCARED of the muslims now. There's too many of them in Paris. It's a slow decline into total muslim control and sharia law from here on out for the french. They've got enough problems on their hands with the yellow vests, they don't want to tell everyone it was a muslim that burnt down Notre Dame now. The globalists might not be able to contain the people. Someone might HURT a MUSLIM... OMG... can't have anyone MAD at MUSLIMS. They can KILL, RAPE, BURN AND BOMB to their hearts content, but don't ANYBODY SAY ANYTHING AGAINST THEM, we don't want any ISLAMOPHOBIA. Dumbest bull shit I ever heard in my life.

    We're going to have to RELIVE the Crusades I'm afraid, unless people WANT to live under islamic sharia law.

    Taken from the Claw of Knowledge

    Since Notre Dame was built 850 years ago, it has been damaged and desecrated in multiple religious riots, had the heads lobbed off its statues during the French Revolution, been taken over by Nazis and had its stained glass shattered by stray bullets, had its spire broken off by wind, and been left half-collapsed due to neglect. Am I nearly in tears watching a treasure of European architecture burn? Yes. But just remember that in the nine centuries the building has been around, it's seen a lot worse.
    Every day I beat my previous record of consecutive days I've stayed alive.

    This is just awful.

    I am hoping it is investigated completely.
    I have lost my mind. If found, please give it a snack and return it?

    I think there are terror acts that are sort of pushed into the quiet zone. I doubt this is one of them. I'm with you on that between the age, amount of wood construction, years of neglect/prior damage, now the renovations, it's likely just a horrendous accident.

    I'll keep an open mind, as it's been a target before, from both jihadis and others over time, but so far I buy the most likely cause.

    If it was arson carried out by a muslim the French are not likely to let that fact be made public, IMHO.

    I respectfully disagree, Old Friend.

    France has been aggressive combating Muslim terrorism, in spite of the Communist government
    that was leading the country for years.

    They have felt the jabs of the Jihadists for decades now.

    Terrorists tend to like to make it known when they carry out attacks, so unless the terrorist group that carried out such an attack wanted to hide the fact then it will be known.
    If you also agree that an animals suffering should be avoided rather than encouraged, consider what steps you can take.
