In France it is now the Christians’ turn to be targeted for attacks by Islamists. This is not a new phenomenon.There is actually an Arabic Islamist slogan that says “First the Saturday people, then the Sunday people.”In other words, first Muslims attack Jews; then when the Jews are gone, they attack Christians. We have watched it happen over and over again in the Middle East and now it is happening in Europe. Many French Jews have fled France and moved to Israel. 8000 of them left France for Israel last year which is a rate far higher than anywhere else in Europe. Once they are all gone the attacks on Christians will increase to fill the void they have left.
The slaughter of French priest Father Jacques Hamel on July 26 in Saint-Étienne-du-Rouvray was significant. The church where Father Jacques Hamel was saying mass was nearly empty.
…Christianity in France is dying out. Jacques Hamel was almost 86 years old; despite his age, he did not want to retire. He knew it would be difficult to find someone to replace him.
…The reaction of the French bishops was also significant. Speaking in their name, Georges Pontier, chairman of the Conference of Bishops of France…asked Muslims living in France to come to church to “share the grief of Christians.” He added that Muslims are welcome in France.
The decision to deliver a message of brotherhood is consistent with the spirit of Christianity. The wish to welcome Muslims to France but to leave completely aside that the assassins of Father Jacques Hamel acted in the name of Islam and jihad seem signs of willful blindness, severely pathological denial, and a resigned, suicidal acceptance of what is coming.
The assassins of Father Jacques Hamel are what is coming.
…Father Jacques Hamel was murdered on July 26, in the church of Saint-Étienne-du-Rouvray, by Islamic jihadists.
The French education system does not teach young people to love France and the West. Itteaches them instead that colonialism plundered many poor countries, that colonized people had to fight to free themselves, and that the fight is not over. It teaches them to hate France. But it erroneously describes Islam as a religion that brought “justice, dignity and tolerance” wherever it reigned.
Seventh-grade students spend the first month of the school year learning what Islamic civilization brought to the world in science, architecture, philosophy and wealth. A few weeks later, they have to memorize texts explaining that the Church committed countless atrocious crimes…The Holocaust is still in the curriculum, but is taught less and less; teachers who dare to speak of it face aggressive remarks from Muslim students.
…French mainstream media do their best to hide the truth. Abdel Malik Petitjean and Adel Kermiche are described as troubled and depressed young people who slipped “inexplicably” towards barbarity. Their actions are widely presented as having nothing to do with Islam.
