FRANCE HAS THE BLOOD OF THIS PRIEST ON THIER HANDS! Their political correctness allowed this KNOWN TERRORIST to roam freely in the streets! Shame on their progressive values that made it possible for this beautiful 84 year old priest, who was filling in at the church to be beheaded by these monsters!
The ISIS knifemen who stormed into a church in Normandy filmed themselves butchering an elderly priest after forcing him to kneel – before they performed a ‘sermon in Arabic’ at the altar, a terrified witness has revealed today.
The 84-year-old priest, named as Jacques Hamel, had his throat cut in a Normandy church this morning in an attack that also left a nun critically injured and both jihadis dead.
The two killers, who were both known to French authorities, were shot dead by police marksmen as they emerged from the building shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’. The building was later searched for bombs.
One of the extremists who stormed into the church in Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray near Rouen during mass was a French 19-year-old named Adel K., who was being monitored by electronic tag after twice attempting to join fanatics in Syria. Unbelievably, his bail terms allowed him to be unsupervised between 8.30am and 12.30pm – the attack happened between 9am and 11am.
Adel K is understood to have forced the priest to kneel while his accomplice, who also lived locally and was on a terrorist watchlist, filmed the brutal killing.
This afternoon it emerged that the murdered clergyman was deputising while the regular parish priest was on holiday. French authorities say they have arrested a third man over the attack – a 17-year-old man believed known as HB and believed to be a relative of Adel K.
It was also revealed that the Catholic church involved was on a terrorist ‘hit list’ found in the apartment of a suspected ISIS extremist last April.
Former French President Nicolas Sarkozy called for a ‘merciless’ response to the killing while ‘horrified’ ex-Prime Minister Jean-Pierre Raffarin said he feared ‘everything is being done to trigger a war of religions’.

A nun who was in the church during the attack said the priest was forced to the ground before his throat was slit.
French authorities admitted that both of the attackers were subject to security ‘S’ files, meaning both were known terror suspects who should have been under surveillance.
Adel K. was a convicted terrorist who was meant to be living with his parents in Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray with an electronic tag on his ankle.
In March 2015, while still a minor, he tried to reach the terror group’s base in Syria via Germany, but was arrested in Munich.
He was placed under judicial control with his parents, but after his 18th birthday again tried to return to the Middle East.
Accompanied by two childhood friends, Adel K. headed to Switzerland overland and then took a plane to Turkey, hoping to cross the border into Syria.
Turkish police deported him back to Switzerland and, after being sent back to his hometown, he was tried and found guilty of ‘associating with a terrorist enterprise’ on May 22 2015.
After spending less than a year of his two-and-a-half-year sentence in prison, he was released on March 22 this year.
