The jump to conclusion that this atrocity may have been the result a construction project being the culprit seems quite odd.
Pamela Geller gets right to the point: There has been all over France recently.
This case could be a manifestation of Islam’s violent contempt for Christianity, the religion of the “most vile of created beings” (Qur’an 98:6).
English translation: Indeed, they who disbelieved among the People of the Scripture and the polytheists will be in the fire of Hell, abiding eternally therein.
Those are the worst of creatures.
A large number of people holding that contempt have recently been admitted into France. Merci, Macron!
I’m not willing to rule out the possibility/probability of jihadis in Paris setting fire to one of Paris’ most famed attractions.
Notre Dame Cathedral, one of the world’s most famous churches, erupted in flames Monday in Paris — and though its survival remains in question, authorities expressed hope.
The commander of the Paris firefighter brigade said Monday night that the cathedral’s main structure and two towers of the cathedral had been saved.
Flames leapt through the roof and dark smoke billowed into the sky on Monday afternoon.
Observers gasped as the spire fell. The roof collapsed shortly afterward.
“Pray,” Archbishop of Paris Michel Aupetit wrote. “If you wish, you can ring the bells of your churches to invite prayer.”

The Paris prosecutor’s office says it has opened an investigation into the fire but that initial indications suggest it was started accidentally.
The cathedral closed at 6:45 p.m. local time, and the fire broke five or six minutes later, France 24 reported.
Police in Paris asked people to avoid the area so emergency vehicles could pass. The area was evacuated and a shelter was set up for residents who live near the cathedral.
“People are not screaming; they’re just watching it burn and people are in a state of shock.
Outside in the periphery, it’s pandemonium in the city.
They’ve stopped the trains from going by here; they’re stopping traffic, police everywhere.
The smoke darkened the sky for miles.
