It is a Surprise that Obama Did Not Blame the Crusades

White House Stresses 'Religious Liberty' Commitment After Normandy Attack, Doesn't Mention ISIS

                 By Bridget Johnson July 26, 2016

The Obama administration's response to the church attack in Normandy, France, framed it as a religious liberty issue without mention of ISIS.
During morning Mass today in the town of Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray, two armed men took five people hostage: two nuns, two parishioners and a priest. They slit the throat of the priest, Rev. Jacques Hamel, 86. One of the hostages was critically injured.
The two terrorists, one who tried to go fight in Syria after the Charlie Hebdo attack but was stopped and briefly imprisoned, were shot dead by police. Another man suspected to have a connection to the attack was arrested.
ISIS' Amaq news agency quickly claimed responsibility for the attack: "The two executors of the attack on a church in Normandy, France, were soldiers of the Islamic State. They executed the operations in response to calls to target countries belonging to the crusader coalition.
