Notre Dame FIRE: Sick ISIS fanatics praise devastating blaze and call it ‘RETRIBUTION’
A poster created by an ISIS affiliated propaganda wing shows the cathedral engulfed by flames with the words “have a good day” and describes the inferno as “retribution and punishment”. According to the Terrorism Research & Analysis Consortium, the Al-Muntasir group created the poster, which reads: “Its construction began in the year 1163 and ended in 1345. It’s time to say goodbye to your oratory polytheism.”
This is not the first time the Al-Munatsir media organisation has revelled in terror attacks that have rocked France over the years.
The Paris prosecutor’s office have ruled out terror-related motives for now and say they are treating the fire as an accident.
French President Emmanuel Macron said an international campaign would be launched to raise funds for the rebuilding of Notre-Dame Cathedral.

The fast-moving fire consumed Notre-Dame Cathedral on Monday in a massive, roaring blaze that devastated the Parisian landmark, a searing loss for the city and for France.
Flames that began in the early evening burst rapidly through the roof of the centuries-old cathedral and engulfed the spire, which collapsed, quickly followed by the entire roof.
As a huge plume of smoke wafted across the city and ash fell over a large area, Parisians watched from the other side of the River Seine gasped as the spire folded over onto itself and fell into the inferno.
Mr Macron said the whole nation was moved, tweeting: “Like all our compatriots, I am sad this evening to see this part of all of us burn.”
The cathedral, which dates back to the 12th century, features in Victor Hugo’s classic novel “The Hunchback of Notre-Dame”. It is a UNESCO World Heritage site that attracts millions of tourists every year.
It is a focal point for French Roman Catholics who like Christians around the world are celebrating Holy Week, marking the death and resurrection of Jesus.
