Two Muslims armed with knives entered a Catholic church in Normandy, France, and took a total of five hostages—a priest, two nuns, and two parishioners. The priest—Rev. Jacques Hamel, 86—was made to kneel before having his throat slit while the Muslims taped the murder.

This attack comes less than two weeks after a Tunisian Muslim drove a cargo truck into crowds of people celebrating Bastille Day on the Promenade des Anglais in Nice, France. A total of 84 people were killed with 303 injured.

One month before that attack, a Moroccan Muslim ambushed a French police commander as he came home and stabbed him to death. The Muslim then barricaded himself inside his victim’s home before murdering the wife in front of their 3-year-old son.

In January, another Tunisian Muslim entered a police station in Paris, France, armed with a meat clever, and he screamed, “Allahu Akbar,” as he attempted to attack police officers. Thankfully, the officers reacted quickly and killed their attacker without any other loss of life.

In November 2015, nine Muslims launched a series of attacks in Paris, France, that killed 130 and injured another 368. In January 2015, three Muslims carried out attacks in and around Paris, killing 17 and injuring another 22.

Germany has also seen a number of Islamic terrorist attacks and attempted attacks in 2015 and 2016. This is in addition to the ongoing rape epidemic in much of Europe due to the influx of Muslim “refugees” including the New Year’s Eve attacks across a few countries that included several rapes (at least) and more than 2,000 assaults and robberies carried out by groups of Muslims.

In response to the latest attack, the Archbishop of Rouen, Most Rev. Dominique Lebrun, has said that the “Catholic church cannot take up any other weapons but prayer and brotherhood among men” and that the faithful should “lower their arms before violence and to become an apostle of a civilization of love.” Fr. Jacques Hamel was murdered by two Muslims inside of a church, and his own archbishop is telling Catholics to promote “brotherhood” and “a civilization of love.”

This is absolute lunacy, and this passivity flies in the face of the Church that spent centuries battling to keep Muslims out of Europe and to protect the faithful from the same. The Saracens have returned to Europe, but this time they are being aided by a traitorous fifth column that has undermined Europe and the Church so that the victims of these savages hold up signs welcoming them.

It is time for Christians to stand in unison and yell, “Enough!” It is time to follow Jesus’s command in Luke 22:36—if you do not own a sword, sell your cloak and buy one.

Liberal Christians will most likely respond by citing Matthew 5:44 and Luke 6:27 that both read, “Love your enemies.” The problem with that is that both passages read “diligite inimicos vestros” in Latin, and this is a very important distinction that is lost in English. Inimicos (acc. pl. of inimicus) are personal enemies, but enemies of the state would have been listed as hostes (acc. pl. of hostis). This is a distinction that also appeared in Greek (εχθρός vs. πολέμιος). In short, Jesus commanded us to not hate people personally in our lives over petty squabbles, but these were not commands at all for us to open our nations to foreign enemies or to expose our throats to murderous savages. Someone who eats your yogurt at work may be your “enemy,” but they are not the same as a Muslim jihadist. It is important for Christians to remember this distinction.

It is time for Christian clergy of all denominations to do what God once called them to do in a great time of need: namely, it is time to preach the Crusade. Christendom is under siege yet again, and the only way for peace to return is for Islam to be forced back into Pandora’s box. That cannot and will not happen by Christians promoting “brotherhood” or “a civilization of love” as the wolves are at our gates with no intention of leaving. Christian clerics are supposed to be shepherds to their flocks, and no shepherd should willingly lead their lambs to such a slaughter.
