France’s Hollande meets religious leaders amid row over attacks security

President Francois Hollande displayed interfaith solidarity with France’s religious leaders on Wednesday after two Islamist militants killed a Roman Catholic priest in a church, igniting fierce political criticism of the government’s security record.

One of the assailants was a known would-be jihadist awaiting trial under supposedly tight surveillance, a revelation that raised pressure over the Socialist government’s response to a wave of attacks claimed by Islamic State since early in 2015.

“We cannot allow ourselves to be dragged into the politics of Daech (Islamic State), which wants to set the children of the same family against each other,” the Archbishop of Paris, Cardinal André Vingt-Trois, told journalists after the meeting at the Elysee presidential palace.

He was flanked by representatives of other Christian denominations as well as Jewish, Muslim and Buddhist leaders.

Hollande and his ministers were already under fire from conservative opponents over the policing of Bastille Day celebrations in the Riviera city of Nice in which 84 people died when a delivery man drove a heavy truck at revelers.

    EU has a lot of garbage in their leadership. Time to follow England and dump the trash causing the mass immigration of mooslimes. Same for the US. Importing via BO and his agenda is a sentence for the legal citizens of the US. When enough of them are here we will see exactly what the EU and England are seeing. And we have the NWO from Bush boys family, the BO slime administration and of course the Clinton graft machine to thank for that. Add their backers like Soros the old nazi collaborator and what’s his name, Bloom boy, etc..

    Dump the dem wit dems, the rino good old go along get along crowd and vote in the ones they don’t like. That is the best recommendation for any candidate these days. If the dem lemmings and the lazy greedy rinos don’t like em and start spreading crap then you know you have a winner at least for one term. Seems like DC spreads some sort of self serving greedy disease which corrupts upon contact. So turn over is good regardless. Vote em out, turn em over, move em out on a regular basis voters!

    This Francois Hollande s a full blown socialist and is more than likely taking big money from muslim leaders to allow this BS to continue happening, but the muslims said they were going to take back Europe and make it like it was in during the crusade! And if Europe don’t end this EU BS and start quickly getting rid of these muslims, they are finished, gone, and slaughtered! At least England had sense to see the light and get out, and seen wher they are considering arming their citizens again, crime is through the roof!! They dumped the climate change bullsh$t to save millions $$$!! Now if we can wise up!!
