Deport Muslims! They did it!

edit: I mean, Easter coming. These bastards fingerprints are all over it. Will Political Correctness prevent the truth from being known?

When they were first reporting this, on Fox, the correspondent tried to point out that there have recently been a number of suspicious fires at Religious sites in France and the 'Talking Head' promptly cut him off.
If it does turn out to have a muslim stench to it ………… somebody just stepped on their dick. Big time !!!

The Muslims place great store in historical dates and significance. This Cathedral has existed since about the 12th century. Sure, just coincidental that it goes up in a roaring blaze today. But, even if they have them on video with the gasoline and the match, they will be reluctant to call a spade a spade. Besides, the French are particularly stupid about their immigrant problem.

Besides, it was the first thing I thought of when I saw the fire and the water hoses. But yeah, could be just an unfortunately.

Anniversary of the Boston bombing, by islamists. Six days to Easter. One of, if not THE most iconic symbols of Christianity and Catholicism. Nope, nothing to see here. I asked on FB which rule is it of Leroy Jethro Gibbs that says there's no such things as a coincidence?

Hell, I'm an atheist and I feel bad for the loss of that church. Beautiful and historic, survived two world wars, Nazi occupation, Napoleon, and we're to believe that some grunt construction worker had a really bad day today. If that's true, imagine how bad that guy feels.

Since the new commie pontiff I'm no fan of the church but this is a historical treasure with no compare. This pope will pass and then things may swing around ! all in all a damn shame I am sure the muzzies did it !

Looking at the photos being shared online today of the damage and I'm impressed. Paris's Fire Brigades did a hell of a job containing the fire and damage to the one portion of the complex and managed to protect quite a bit of the structure and contents. Lots of Monday morning quarterbacking as to what the firefighters should have done and would have done if the internet experts had been there. Fact is, and despite the historical significance of the cathedral, the building still isn't worth the unnecessary risking of human life, and the fact that 400 firefighters were on the fireground and only one sustained injuries is a true tribute to the capabilities of their command personnel.

A structure such as that is not at all unlike modern truss roof construction where you have a wide expanse of open space supported by wide structures that, when exposed to high heat, tend to come down. The height of the roof and lack of access to any sort of position from which to fight the fire offensively really limited their ability to attack the seat of the fire. The job they did defensively attacking in a way that protected the bell towers and kept the fire from extending into any other adjoining structures was exceptional, in my opinion. Sometimes, the fire is so far into things when you get there that the best you can do is try to keep it from growing. My objective as a Fire Company Officer and occasional Incident Commander was to stop anything from burning that wasn't already burning when I got there. They essentially got this done. I personally think they deserve great applause rather than criticism from people who have no idea what it's like to be in that situation.
