I'd barely finished shooting when news came in that Notre Dame de Paris, perhaps Europe's most beautiful medieval cathedral, was on fire, flames had engulfed the building. 

First thoughts first, the Jihad did it, striking a blow against the Crusaders, if only they were, in the heart of the Frankish kingdom.

But no, ISIS hasn't claimed responsibility, which they would if they were in on it, what a triumph for the Jihad. Who then? A careless builder, throwing a half smoked Gauloise down on the tinder dry frame of the great church's roof? Perhaps.

Anarcho-Marxists, sticking it to the hated Man a few days before Easter? Conceivable. But who really stands to gain from such a disaster. 

What about Macron, who now gets to rebuild the "soul of France" and become a hero saviour at the very point of looking down the blade of a hi-viz guillotine.

Whatever the case, stand by for photo evidence of "yellow vests" setting light to the cathedral and in the meanwhile, thank God the church is still standing and its treasures safe. Apart, of course, from the  priceless irreplacement of it all.

Speaking of price, who insures Notre Dame? And while you're following the money, I'll tell you this. 

Do not, I repeat, do not mess with the Blessed Virgin Mary or you will be relentlessly destroyed.

Your Friend,

A sad day, regardless of the cause.

Hmmm. If it’s the yellow vests then it’s total thuggery and yob-like behaviour. You don’t set fire to an 850 year church.
But, Macron? Now there’s a conspiracy theory! And, note, many of the important treasures and artefacts were removed just the day before...

They sure are celebrating it however

I totally agree, WSF.

LSP said...

I don't think it was the Jihad, Jules, though they've made moves to blow up the cathedral in the past. Was it Macron or satan worshiping secularists? Is there a difference?

Thank God it wasn't totally destroyed.

LSP said...

Saw that, Egyptian. They'll go too far at some point, I'll wager.

It will rebuilt. Probably as a combination church/mosque. (To better reflect the glory of multiculturalism you see.)

Some say it was arson, Infidel.
