…from Russia Today, Moscow

[ Editor’s Note: The early news indicates that it was a sitting duck, with open public access and no video surveillance to trigger inside movement. It looks like three teams went in quickly to start three fires and then left.

This laxity exposes all the other “open” churches. After all the terror attacks in France, I had expected that there would be some minimal level of security at highly open targets, like the big churches.

If money was a problem, then they could be open on certain days for certain hours. We will watch for follow up stories and get our Paris correspondent on itJim W. Dean ]

Images showing the charred interior of the 15th-century cathedral in Nantes, France, appear to point at three separate outbreaks of flames having damaged the Gothic gem on Saturday. Arson is being investigated.

The diocese of Nantes released images on Facebook in the wake of the blaze. It completely destroyed the grand organ at the Cathedral of St. Pierre and St. Paul, blew out the stained glassed windows at the front of the building, and consumed a valuable 19th-century painting that had been sent from Rome.

Locals quickly spotted that, judging by the photos, there had been two separate fires on the ground floor, located meters away from each other. The third apparently broke out on the upper level.

Nantes Prosecutor Pierre Sennes confirmed there had been three fire hotspots in the building and announced that “an arson investigation has been opened.”

More than 100 firefighters were dispatched to tackle the blaze, which has since been extinguished. The fire started at the Gothic cathedral in the early morning.

The incident prompted comparisons to the fire in April 2019 at the famous Notre-Dame de Paris. The iconic building lost its roof and spire in what was a much bigger blaze, but the investigation failed to find any foul play, with an electrical short circuit named as the most likely cause.

  1. America is being consumed by a satanic jewish bolshevik revolution, just like in Russia 1917, first they destroy free speech, replace symbols with their own, menorahs everywhere, then they start burning down churches, exactly what you see now.
    America may be the most powerful country in the world, but no country can survive treason from within. Although I hate what Trump has done, specially in regards to israel, the Communist Democratic Party must not be allowed to win in November. Im not an American, but Im looking from outside in.

  2. The tithing of the local poor does not even cover the regular maintenance of these buildings.

    The confessional is a wonderful resource for connections of all kinds. And the worldwide resource of harboring fugitives, all set up with new names, diplomatic passports and always happy to return the favor. Cha ching

    Notre Dame was not arson but the instant wealth that came from all directions was noticed by all.

  3. Notre Dame was no accident. St Sulpice had also had recent fires. Too many ‘coincidences..’ This is a blatant attack on religious monuments by whom hard to say. There are a few obvious suspects that could be named.

  4. Makes me think Notre Dame inferno was no accident. Could be Wahhabi or Zio, or Freemasonic?
