    Fire Rips Through Cathedral Dating from 1434 in Nantes, France




    The Cathedral of St Peter and St Paul of Nantes, also known as Saint-Pierre-et-Saint-Paul or simply Nantes Cathedral, which dates from 1434, has been engulfed in flames.



    UPDATE: Regional fire chief General Laurent Ferlay has told AFP that, after a two-hour battle, firemen have contained the blaze. The wire service reports that officials have told them the damage is “not comparable to last year’s fire at Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris”, although interior fixtures including the cathedral organ have been destroyed. Our original report continues: “After Notre-Dame, Saint-Pierre-et-Saint-Paul cathedral, in the heart of Nantes, is in flames,” lamented President Emmanuel Macron in a social media
    post. “Support for our firefighters who take all the risks to save this Gothic jewel of the city of the Dukes,” he said of the epic structure, which was started in the 15th century and not completed until 1891.


    The cause of the fire, which is not currently known. Breitbart London has previously reported on how dozens of French cathedrals, churches, and other historic buildings were in danger following the devastating Notre-Dame fire in 2019.




    I read that three churches are attacked every day in France. Try telling us this one wasn't arson.

    Stood for 700 years until they let Muslims in. Mosques never burn down. It’s always Christian cathedrals and churches .


    Every senior UK politician is only interested in how much they can get out of certain billionaires in return for selling UK government policy and legislation.


    And it’s stashed in off shore accounts.


    Electrical short causing 486 yr old rock hard oak to combust into an inferno ?
    Or just another act of Muhammadan Jihad?
    I know what the experts and scientists will say.....


    another electrical fire where there is no wiring.


    This is no coincidence, and Notre Dame was a test run. This is far from over. More churches will burn.

    Part of muslim conquest destroying the non-muslim past. The reason it's happening is our leaders are false and corrupt.

    4 stages of Islamic Conquest: Stage 1: Infiltration, Stage 2: Consolidation of Power, Stage 3: Open War with Leadership and Culture, Stage 4: Totalitarian Islamic "Theocracy". The 4 Stages Of Islamic Conquest - The Daily Coin


    Look at how our cities and our culture has changed, then you know what stage we're at.

    More articles... was this even mentioned in the "mainstream" media?

    Centuries to build, one negro with a match to destroy. Because Europeans let them in. This one was supposedly a "caretaker" at this church. I see now that they've let him go...

    https://www.reuters.com/article/us-f...-idUSKCN24K0B0

    They probably think it would be "racist" to charge him.

    Europe is for Europeans. Everyone else needs to leave. Now.

    We have church burnings in the States also. The Pentecostal Mississippi church who did safe drive-through services defied the stay-at-home order, and it got burned down weeks later. They said it was probably arson, but at least our media still admits to possible arson in the news. In the US, you can destroy property and protest violently in large crowds over the death of one law-breaking man, but you can't attend church if you wish during the corona virus lock-down. All these past riots only mock the purpose of staying safely 6 feet apart and wearing your mandatory protective masks. Churches have not been very popular lately among anarchists, satanists, feminists and Jihadists; it could have been any of these groups to mention.

    Does anyone think that these burnings will somehow bring people back to church? Why care that much more now that most are irreligious? Christianity exploited and destroyed fading Heathen interests and Islam is just following suit. Nothing really original or shocking about this. Other than the burials, there's nothing really valuable at stake. All those cathedrals were built on the backs of serfs who might have otherwise been worshiping their ancestral Indo-European religion instead of slaving away for the Pope and being murdered by the Inquisition for stepping out of line. You get what you give with karma.

    Yes, Henri de Rohan and confederates at La Rochelle would have sooner been hanged, drawn and quartered with as much glee as there are those sad about a mere building symbolic of the oppressions wielded by Richelieu and Mazarin to restore the Guise and Medici fanaticisms at their expence. Fontainebleau replacing Nantes is more than enough reason to enjoy the pyromania. I suspect there's not going to be anymore French Wars of Religion anytime soon. On a Germanic forum, I weep no crocodile tears about iconoclasm in Romance France.

    Rwandan Migrant Previously Held and Released Over Nantes Cathedral Fire Admits Arson



    A volunteer at Nantes Cathedral has told police that he lit three fires inside the 15th-century building he was entrusted to look after by church authorities.



    Nantes cathedral was badly damaged in the arson attack on July 18th, with dramatic images and footage showing fire ripping through the west porch and tower of the “Gothic jewel” of the city, which caused serious internal damage and destroyed the organ.


    An arson investigation was launched almost immediately after the two-hour battle by firefighters to save the building, and shortly afterwards a Rwandan immigrant — who was a volunteer at the cathedral and had been responsible for locking up the building the night before — was held and questioned by police. The man was released without charge shortly afterwards.




    But now the same — named only as ‘Emmanuel’ in French newspapers — 39-year-old man has been rearrested and has confessed, Le Figaro reports, to arson. The man, who came to France as a refugee from Rwanda in 2015 or 2016 and was looked after by the church after his arrival, told a magistrate after presenting himself to the police to confess on Saturday night that he lit three fires. Two were in organs, and one was in an electrical control panel.



    Taken into police custody, the man faces up to ten years in prison and a fine of €150,000 ($175,000) for the destruction. he caused.



    The motive of the attack is unknown. By the account of the cathedral’s rector the Rwandan male had volunteered at the church for some years and served at altar. He was trusted enough to be one of six volunteers who had a full set of keys to the building and was on a rota for locking the building up in the evening. The lawyer for the man said his client “bitterly regrets” what had happened.



    That Nantes burned so soon after the devastating fire at Notre Dame cathedral Paris did not fail to elicit attention and comment in France, although the Notre-Dame fire is said to have been an accident, rather than arson. French President Emmanuel Macron remarked as the fire burnt earlier in July: “After Notre-Dame, Saint-Pierre-et-Saint-Paul cathedral, in the heart of Nantes, is in flames… Support for our firefighters who take all the risks to save this Gothic jewel of the city of the Dukes.”







    His client “bitterly regrets” getting caught.


    What is the point of the €150,000 fine? Does anyone seriously think that this moron will ever contribute anything positive to society? Save the money he will cost by being incarcerated and just deport him. It ain't rocket science!

    No surprise. It had to be done deliberately by a 3rd worlder.


    Catholic missionaries always had their head in the clouds and no realization that africoons are stone-age primitives who they should never had anything to do with.

    France: Illegal Migrant Who Set Nantes Cathedral on Fire Reportedly 'Beat Catholic Priest to Death'


    09.08.2021





    Pictured: Father Olivier, the 60-year-old priest who was allegedly murdered in today's attack



    French Interior Minister Gérald Darmanin has gone to the department of Vendée, where the murder occurred. According to BFMTV, police are not considering the assassination to be a terrorist attack at this stage.




    Catholic priest Olivier Maire, 60, has been killed in Mortagne-sur-Sèvre in western France, according to authorities.



    The suspect, a Rwandan refugee named Emmanuel Abayisenga, the same man who was previously charged with setting the Nantes Cathedral on fire, turned himself in to the police and confessed on Monday, Valeurs Actuelles reported.



    The Daily Mail reported, citing a source, that according to the early evidence, the 60-year-old priest had been beaten to death.



    Interior Minister Darmanin addressed the murder, pledging his full support for grieving Catholics and departing to the scene of the incident.



    At the same time, he clashed with French politician Marine Le Pen, who had earlier slammed the minister and the government as a whole, for allowing such a crime to happen.


    "In France, you can therefore be an illegal immigrant, burn the cathedral of Nantes, never be expelled, and repeat by murdering a priest. What is happening in our country is of unprecedented gravity: it is the complete bankruptcy of the state and [Interrior Minister] @GDarmanin", she said in a tweet.


    The minister, however, noted that the suspect "was not deportable despite his deportation order until his judicial review was lifted".



    In 2020, Abayisenga was detained for arson and was under judicial supervision. According to French authorities, he was refused asylum back in 2019 and was supposed to leave the country, but he remained in France. At the time, he confessed that the decision to set the cathedral on fire was revenge for the rejection of his asylum application by the French authorities.

    'What was this man doing in France?'

    Politicians' fury as Rwandan 'kills Catholic priest who was sheltering him as he awaited trial for Nantes Cathedral arson'.

    You couldn't make this up.

    And I would bet that the Catholics/Christians would forgive him and say they still love him and coddle him and let him live in France.

    Michel Barnier calls for FIVE-YEAR halt to immigration into EU as policy 'doesn't work'


    Michel Barnier calls for FIVE-YEAR halt to immigration into EU as policy 'doesn't work'


    MICHEL Barnier has called for a halt to immigration into Europe for up to five years.


    The former Brexit negotiator’s bombshell would even bar Britons moving to the bloc to allow Brussels time to evaluate its treasured freedom of movement. The Frenchman said lessons must be learned after a failed asylum seeker murdered a Catholic priest sheltering him. Mr Barnier insisted European immigration policy “does not work” and time should be taken to review the rules.


    The 70-year-old, who is preparing to be a centre-right challenger to Emmanuel Macron in next year’s presidential election, said: “I think we have to take the time for three or five years to suspend immigration."

    He added: “Overall, immigration policy does not work in Europe as it does not work in France. That’s why I’m making this moratorium proposal. “I try to be honest and address issues that are extremely serious. Let’s take the time to reconsider procedures that are not working. Let’s see why we still have people who committed crimes. “I'm obviously thinking of Father Olivier Maire, who was assassinated two days ago, and I don't want to use this dramatic case, but we have to learn a lesson from it.”

    Mr Barnier has previously warned that voters are “angry” about new arrivals on the Continent. France has become a prime destination for asylum seekers because of its border with Britain. A record number of migrants are arriving in the UK after crossing the English Channel in small boats. More than 10,050 migrants have crossed in small boats this year. The figure has already surpassed 2020’s annual record of 8,420.



    Home Secretary Priti Patel is currently attempting to sign bilateral deals with individual EU member states but has been rejected by European capitals. EU governments claim they are not allowed to negotiate separately from the bloc. The Border Force is braced for 22,000 people to cross the Channel in small boats this year with thousands more expected to be smuggled across in lorries.


    Last month Ms Patel agreed a £54million deal with France to reduce the number of migrants reaching England. The agreement was supposed to boost the number of police patrolling French beaches and additional surveillance technology deployed on the coast. Officials will also patrol a larger area of the coastline in northern France between Boulogne and Dunkirk, as well as further northwest around Dieppe.


    Of the pact, Ms Patel said: “The British people have simply had enough of illegal migration and the exploitation of migrants by criminal gangs. “Illegal immigration is driven by serious organised criminals and people smugglers. “The public are rightly angry that small boats are arriving on our shores, facilitated by appalling criminal gangs who profit from human misery and put lives at risk.”



    Michel Barnier calls for FIVE-YEAR halt to immigration ... 12 VIII 2021.


    "MICHEL Barnier has called for a halt to immigration into Europe for up to five years" - nothing genuine or honest about this Arch Globalist. This is just political bluster for the next French Presidenical election to undermine Le Penn.
