Fellow Patriots:

ISIS Threatens the West

From the attack in Nice to the beheading of a priest in Normandy, ISIS is on the march. Democrats may not want to talk about it, but I will. This is a conversation we ***MUST*** have. Before we move on and forget what happened to Father Jacques Hamel, here are some of the latest details. There is a mosque just a block away from the church were Father Hamel was murdered. Ironically, the mosque sits on land that was donated by the Catholic Church. According to French reports, the community around the mosque is “known to be an anchor of the jihadist network,” and the mosque has produced several terrorists. In addition, the church where Father Hamel was murdered was found to be on an ISIS hit list.

Think about this. Islam means submission. Some say it means peace. But look at how the faith is practiced: Muslims get on their knees and prostrate themselves en masse bowing to Allah in submission.

What did the Islamic supremacists do to Father Hamel? They forced him to his knees. They made him bow in submission and then they killed him.

A nun who witnessed the attack said the Islamists also started “preaching in Arabic in front of the altar.” I have not seen a translation yet of what the jihadists preached at the altar, but I suspect it could have been the Shahada: “I bear witness that there is no god but Allah, and I bear witness that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah.”

Were French authorities monitoring the mosque given its history? Are French authorities and the French people willing to tolerate churches being on hit lists? Are European leaders prepared to confront this evil that is threatening Judeo-Christian civilization?

Sadly, as Europeans have become ever more “enlightened” and progressive, they have abandoned their traditional faith. The great churches of Europe are largely empty. Many have been converted to mosques. And as Europe imports more and more Muslims, Islam is filling the void left by a decaying and decadent culture.

By the way, ISIS is now warning that London and Washington are next on its hit list.

Now They Care

Outrage over the likely Russian hacking of DNC computers continues to grow today. Suddenly, all these pacifist liberals sound like they are ready to go to war.

Over the last eight years, the Russians, the Chinese and the Iranians have hacked the State Department, Pentagon, the White House, dozens of banks, a dam, and seized almost all vital information on virtually every current and past federal employee.

The reaction of the Obama administration to each attack was largely muted. But when the DNC is hacked, that’s beyond the pale. And if the Russians hacked the DNC, I guarantee they hacked the former secretary of state’s private server too, and they likely have those missing 30,000 “personal” emails.
