Our Lady The Profound Lesson of the Notre Dame Fire

Our Lady The Profound Lesson of the Notre Dame Fire
As the flames shot out of the roof of Notre Dame de Paris on Monday evening, a global community of concern quickly formed. It shows that the idea of cultural heritage is much more than just a UNESCO list.

“In just a few hours today, 650 million euros was donated to rebuild Notre Dame,” South Africa-based journalist Simon Allison tweeted. “In six months, just 15 million euros has been pledged to restore Brazil’s National Museum. I think this is what they call white privilege.”

Cute.

Cute.
The comparison seems a bit far fetched.
I doubt the Brazil museum was 900 years old and certainly no historical monument. The Palmyra museum looted and destroyed by ISIS wacko's went back a lot further.

Don’t worry! American ingenuity can turn that money sucking pig into a profit machine ASAP. A little casino here, motel there, and mixed use commercial/residential will turn that quagmire around. Jet boats on the seine, drag strip ave beside, and the best little whore house east of the Atlantic. Boom! Back in the green and no hunches about it. Give the people what they want.

Don't forget about the new Trump Hotel, it will be better than the Ritz but "Putting on the Trump," isn't going to cut it somehow.

Ok, So it's been several days since this horrendous act of barstadry occured.
We now know that several things did NOT cause the fire. Firstly,No construction workers were on site. , Secondly,there is a permanent hot crew in place 24/7 to protect against fire .
All electrical work was carried out less than 10 years ago with fire protection systems in place.
There were two separate seats of fire,the left Spire and the roof above the Altar .
But the one convincing fact.
There were 875 (eight hundred and seventy five) separate attacks on Churches in France this year.
The Monday of Holy week was not a coincidence.
France is under attack by Jihadists who are carrying out the instructions in the Koran at 2:216 and 2:218 .
the first verse says "warfare is ordained for you , thou it is hateful unto you ; but it may happen that hate a thing which is good for you and it may happen that ye love a thing which is bad for you ,Allah knoweth, ye know not.
Not only does this verse establish that violence can be virtuous, but it also contradicts the myth that fighting is intended only in self-defense, since the audience was obviously not under attack at the time. From the Hadith, we know that this verse was narrated at a time that Muhammad was actually trying to motivate his people into raiding merchant caravans for loot
the second verse says Lo! those who believe ,and those who emigrate (to escape alleged persecution ) and strive[jihad] in the way of allah ,these have hope of allahs mercy,allah is forgiving,merciful.
And then; Quran (8:39) - "And fight with them until there is no more fitna (disorder, unbelief) and religion is all for Allah.
Thus the killing of innocent people and the burning of churches.
A list of islamic attacks on Churches.

the Name of Islam:
Last 30 Days

This is part of the list of killings in the name of Islam maintained by TheReligionofPeace.com. Most of these incidents are terror attacks. A handful are honor killings or Sharia executions.
During this time period, there were 96 Islamic attacks in 22 countries, in which 651 people were killed and 1253 injured.

Most Muslim extremist attacks and deaths happen in Muslim countries. Where are those numbers?

Not counting the thousands killed by western forces, of course...

Your feedback and insight will be valued in the Muslim Problem thread.
Should we round them up before it's too late?
