Elderly French priest killed on altar by ISIS; Fremch PM says nation at war with ISIS

The priest was at the altar during morning mass. The church was reportedly on an Islamic State "hit list."

From the Daily Mail:
Francois Hollande says France is at war with ISIS after two Islamist knifemen butchered a French priest and left a nun fighting for her life before they were both shot dead by police in Normandy.

One of the men who stormed into the church in Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray near Rouen during mass was a local man, who was being monitored by electronic tag after being jailed for trying to join fanatics in Syria.

The 84-year-old priest, named as Jacques Hamel, had his throats cut while a nun is critically injured in hospital following the raid which saw five people held hostage by ISIS assailants shouting Allahu Akbar.

This afternoon it emerged that the murdered clergyman was deputising while the parish priest was on holiday. French authorities say they have arrested a third man in connection with the attack.
ISIS is at war with the United States too. Only Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton have not figured that out yet.

As for the slain priest, the Pope needs to declare him a martyr for the faith.
