from those who might claim that the two 'men' who slit the throat of Father Jacques Hamel as said said morning Mass at his church in Rouen were just mixed up individuals.
The fact that one of them, Adel Kermiche, had been twice arrested for trying to get to Syria and join IS; that after they killed Father Hamel they 'preached' a sermon in Arabic from the alter; that on exiting the Church they were screaming "Allahu Akbar"; that IS has claimed them as 'theirs' ... all of this is to be disregarded. Islamic terrorism does not exit.
Well, go to it if you will. Defend the indefensible. Meanwhile my thoughts and prayers are with Father Hamel's extended family and to the people of Le Belle France.
Updated ... I see the attackers also managed to knife a Nun who is fighting for her life. An octogenarian Priest and an elderly Nun and all in the name of radical Islam ... not bad for those big brave Yoofs.
