Terror at French church reflects an ISIS vow

crescent and starA Messianic Jewish leader says the recent horrific murder of a French priest is exactly what ISIS has promised it will do.

The Islamic terrorist attack took place earlier this week at a church in Saint Etienne-du-Rouvay in Normandy. The two attackers linked to the Islamic State terrorist group took hostages during morning mass. After they murdered an 85-year old priest, both terrorists were killed by French police. One of the congregants said he was forced to take pictures and video of the atrocity.

Jan Markell, founder and director of Olive Tree Ministries, isn't surprised at this latest terrorist act in the West.

"What's happening is what ISIS promised would happen: they're bringing the caliphate to Europe and to America – to the Western world," she notes. "They are using the refugee excuse to implant many of their terrorists inside these refugee enclaves that are coming into various countries."

A spokesperson for Open Doors USA recently pointed out that this attack in France was the first on a church in the West, making it "extremely noteworthy" and in some ways an omen of what to expect.

Markell, Jan (Olive Tree Ministries)According to Markell, the meteoric rise of Donald Trump on the political scene can be attributed – at least in part – to the worldwide concern over terrorism.

"He's naming the enemy, which the left will not do – Donald Trump names the enemy," she states bluntly. "He talks about building a wall; whereas the :eft operates in total denial because of their reprobate mindset, the Romans I mentality: good is evil and evil is good."

Markell says the popularity of Trump's message is a reaction to the widespread chaos because many Americans can see that the Left refuses to take the terrorist threat seriously.
