Interesting. She also said she thought he went to stay with his cousin. How was he allowed to do that if he was wearing an ankle monitor? Deport this family. It sounds like she was involved in some way.

Default Father Jacques Hamel, Normandy Priest, Executed by ISIS Militants

ISIS knifemen film themselves murdering French priest in Normandy

A gentle 84 year old priest was executed by known terror threat Adel Kermiche in Normandy, France last week. He was under 24 hour ankle bracelet monitoring for twice trying to leave France for Syria to fight for ISIS. He was able to mount the attack because he was at liberty from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

Typically, there has been little outcry about this attack, while Israel faces regular and systematic condemnation for defending itself. Where are the campus movements against the ISIS murderers? Where's the outrage?

A few things.

Firstly, this is a few days old and there was already a thread about it. Since then, there has been a memorial service for the man, and a movement by many Muslims in France to attend mass to pay their respects.

Second, when was the last time Israel was really scolded for something? It's been months at least, probably longer, since that's been a real discussion topic. And while I agree, Israel defending itself shouldn't be compared to things like this, it also seems that we're not really mad about Israel at the moment.

Third, the attack was in France and this was surely why it wasn't talked about much. In terms of spectacle, the attack wasn't a huge one, so CNN doesn't care. Mainstream media tends to stick to sensational stuff, because that's what makes them money.

First, I word-searched "Normandy" for last seven days and did not come up with an "earlier thread." Second, what do you call this kind of garbage,Palestinian siblings killed in Israeli strikes on Gaza - AJE News?

I was thinking this gentleman survived the Nazi occupation to be butchered by his own countryman.

So true, but I would put "countryman" in quotes. These "people" have no loyalty to France.
