In recent months, France has been plagued by attacks from Islamic extremists. Earlier today, two incidents arose, one at the Notre Dame Basilica in Nice and the other in the town of Montfavet, near Avignon.
In the first incident, a man armed with a knife attacked and killed three people in the church with one lady having been decapitated. According to Nice’s mayor, Christian Estrosi, the man was detained and shot by police but is alive.
In the second incident, a man was threatening passersby in the streets of Montfavet with a handgun. Police did end up having to shoot and kill the man. Both of these men were identified as Muslim extremist with their cry of “Allahu Akbar!” before committing these acts.
These attacks have hardened the French government against Islamic influence. “Enough is enough,” Estrosi said. “It’s time now for France to exonerate itself from the laws of peace in order to definitively wipe out Islamo-fascism from our territory.”
On the other hand, the French Council for the Muslim faith has denounced these attacks. As a sign of mourning they are encouraging people to cancel their celebrations for Mawlid, the holiday celebrating the birthday of Mohammad that’s happening today.
In these endeavors to find security and peace, the French and Muslims are missing the true key. Only salvation by grace will stop these attacks and bring peace. Please pray for France and pray that God would send laborers into this need field!
