PARIS— An alarm was raised at Notre Dame at 6:20 p.m. on Monday night—23 minutes before the structure was engulfed in flames—but officials found no sign of a fire.
Firefighters who responded to a second alert raced to the scene but were then unable to tame an inferno that ripped through the 12th century cathedral for the next 9 hours.
“What we know at this stage is that there was an initial alarm at 6:20 p.m., followed by a procedure to verify this but no fire as found,” Heitz explained. “Then, there was a second alarm at 6:43 p.m. and at that point a fire was detected in the structure.”
But now a video has come to the fore from the Hal Turner radio show. A Muslim is clearly seen on TV video in an area of the Cathedral of Notre Dame that he should NOT have been in, as the fire broke out. It now seems the destruction of the 850 year old Cathedral was Islamic warfare.
Why was this Muslim where he was at the Cathedral of Notre Dame, as the fire began?
Was he setting MORE fire?

In November last year, two Muslim women wearing Hijab’s were arrested for trying to set a church on fire. Only ONE tiny newspaper story in France covered the news with a tiny print article, no Internet coverage:
France has seen a spate of attacks against Catholic churches since the start of the year, vandalism that has included arson and desecration.
Vandals have smashed statues, knocked down tabernacles, scattered or destroyed the Eucharist and torn down crosses, sparking fears of a rise in anti-Catholic sentiment in the country.
Last Sunday, the historic Church of St. Sulpice in Paris was set on fire just after midday mass on Sunday, Le Parisien reported, although no one was injured. Police are still investigating the attack, which firefighters have confidently attributed to arson.
Built in the 17th century, St. Sulpice houses three works by the Romantic painter Eugene de la Croix, and was used in the movie adaptation of The Da Vinci Code, by Dan Brown.
Last month, at the St. Nicholas Catholic Church in Houilles, in north-central France, a statue of the Virgin Mary was found smashed, and the altar cross had been thrown on the ground, according to La Croix International, a Catholic publication.
Also in February, at Saint-Alain Cathedral in Lavaur, in south-central France, an altar cloth was burned and crosses and statues of saints were smashed. The attack prompted Lavaur Mayor Bernard Canyon to say in a statement: “God will forgive. Not me.”
And in the southern city of Nimes, near the Spanish border, vandals looted the altar of the church of Notre-Dame des Enfants (Our Lady of the Children) and smeared a cross with human excrement. NEWSWEEK
. . . AND THIS FROM RT
Catholic churches in France are being targeted with arson attacks, vandalism, desecration of holy statues, and the destruction of the Eucharist. The attacks have been happening since the start of the year.
The Cardinal tweeted the following:
Les actes de profanation et de vandalisme dans les églises sont toujours hautement condamnables. Ils sont le triste reflet d’une civilisation malade qui se laisse emporter dans les filets du mal. Les évêques, les prêtres, les fidèles doivent garder la force et le courage. +RS

Returning to France:
“Macron’s France: Average of Three Church Attacks Per Day,” by Chris Tomlinson, Breitbart, March 30, 2019
French churches are coming increasingly under attack with an average of nearly three churches per day targeted for vandalism alone over the past three years.
A report from the Central Criminal Intelligence Service (SCRC) of the gendarmerie noted that from 2016 to 2018 there had been thousands of cases of church vandalism, peaking in 2017 with 1,045 cases, Le Figaro reports.
According to the French Ministry of the Interior, when cemeteries and other sites are taken into consideration, the number of acts of vandalism rose to 1,063 in 2018.
Earlier this year, in one week alone France saw twelve churches vandalized, including attackers attempting to set fire to the church of Saint-Sulpice in Paris.
In Nimes, an even more heinous attack occurred, with vandals smearing feces on the wall of the church of Notre-Dame des Enfants and stealing objects from the altar.
In March, the over 800-year-old Basilica of Saint-Denis in the now heavily migrant-populated suburbs of Paris was also vandalized, with the basilica’s organ being heavily damaged and stained glass windows were broken….
LAST NIGHT – SOUTH CAROLINA

Hal Turner Commentary
Christianity – and the Catholic Church in particular, is under actual attack.
The Crusades happened for a reason. Muslims attacked, and attacked, and attacked until finally, after several hundred years and hundreds-of-thousands killed, Christians struck back and kicked their collective ass.
It seems to me that the West is once again at war with Islam… or perhaps that war never ended and is just getting worse now?
Since they began infiltrating our country and our government, their plan has moved forward very rapidly. There was never a time Islam was not the enemy of the USA, and of every country of “infidels”.
Muslims intend to take over the US by 2020, and they are making tremendous progress. Won’t be late by much, unless we act.
Since members of CAIR are advisers to our highest office, and some of them state they are jihadis, and since we have them elected to Congress and in every other sort of elected office throughout the land – well – again? No, never stopped.
However, we do nothing. We just sit back, fat, dumb and happy, and do nothing. We are handing our lives to them, along with our country, as the next step or two is to force each of us, instantaneously, to swear allegiance to Islam, pay jizya, or be killed. Right then and there.
Thus they make this an entirely Muslim country, all theirs. Every blade of grass, every home, every Christian burial plot, every wave of grain and growth of tree and whitecap – all Islamic under Sharia law.
So we type, endlessly, about this, while it happens and happens.
Wait, just a second. You know, I would hardly call it war.
In a war the two sides are fighting each other. Here the only thing I see are Muslims attacking Christians with the media and rulers of the Western world telling us it’s not the whole religion; it’s just a small group of bad people. Justification. Excuses. We’re told don’t fight back.
The video at the top of this story says everything that I think needs to be said about how the fire started at the Cathedral of Notre Dame.
The war which begot the Crusades is still going on. We are asleep. They are using our laws and the liberal people against us to have their way. We must fight back or all will be lost.
Islam started the war which begot the Crusades.
Catholics/Christians finished it.
Maybe Christians shouldn’t make the same mistake of waiting several hundred years before putting a stop to this Islamic warfare, this time?
