France: Muslim sets fire to 3 churches… Nothing to do with Islam says prosecutor

The suspect was arrested as he left St. Francis Church, Monday around 17 pm. Around 14 h 30, he had tried to set fire to an altar dedicated to St. Anthony, the church Notre-Dame-de-Espinasse. Two people had extinguished the flames with holy water. A first fire – the most serious – had been dispatched to 13 pm at Sacred Heart, where another altarpiece of Saint Anthony was partially destroyed. The young man of 22, a Moroccan national, was already known to justice for voluntary departures of fires committed in Paris and Millau.

For his part, Frédéric Coulomb, the representative of the Public Ministry, firmly ruled out any act “to radical Islamist or connotation.” But he described the accused as dangerous ( “can be described as pyromaniac”) and required nine months of prison custody, care obligation and monitoring social justice for five years.

Evidently there is no “pattern” to his pyromania…

    Well, what a relief to discover just another mental case.
    But if that is the norm, why aren’t all these firebugs, homicidal morons, and beheading fetish “practitioners” simply rounded up and deported back to their majority muslim shitholes from whence they came?

      Collectively, French officialdom has its tete up its cul.

        Actually that applies to all of the West.

    This is so great that his Islamism was not relevant in setting fire to the Infidels’ church. I think all of us are so calmed and pacified when those in power know so much more than any of us about this sort of stuff. By the same token, it is astonishing the growth of the awfully barbaric rape epidemics in Sweden. Luckily there are so many immigrant Muslims to settle the whole thing down, because of their respect for women.

    You have to wonder what unreal universe or sick blindness politicians et al have wandered into to continue to spew this “oh it would never be the Muslims” crap, after so many years of evidence to the contrary.

    Establishment bollocks, actually. Muslim are Muslims, now and forevermore. Our species shall simply have to impartially exterminate this global plague and then move on to a far better future.

    And of course, not considered a hate crime, because they were just Christian churches, no big deal.

    Moroccan – send the skinny fecker back to the bled and leave him there.

    He’s simply a concerned, civic-minded individual who noticed the municipal authorities closing down various Christian churches so he just decided to give them a hand and save taxpayers’ money!

    Time to revive the chivalric orders. The original ones were created to protect pilgrims to the Holy Land. Later others were to protect churches.

    I’don’t encourage the Bishops to encourage their reactivation and organize them if needed

  • Shebel

    Definitely not a Hate crime. It is just WAR.

  • Just like shootings at kosher delis are simply random.

    Of course it has nothing to do with Islam. It never does. After all, everyone knows that Islam is a religion of peace and tolerance.
