Notre Dame Fire Deemed ‘Construction Accident,’ But Here’s What the Media is Not Telling You by Jenn Carter

What the media is not telling you!!!
On Monday, the world reacted in horror as the nearly 900-year old Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris was nearly completely destroyed by fire.
Horrific flames quickly engulfed the entire core structure, and after 2 hours, the iconic spire collapsed, along with most of the roof and its 210 tons of lead.
That’s what we know.
Here’s what we don’t: What caused it? Well the media seems to have focused on one reason, and one reason only: the cathedral was “under construction” — a reported $7 million project lasting years, and scheduled to complete just this year.
Therefore the most logical reason, absent obvious foul play, is a “construction accident.“
FoxNews and most other nets treated it as such: Given the scope of the renovations, it is quite likely a “welding spark ignited paint thinner” or any other cause widely speculated in media reports, that can typically occur on a busy construction site.
But there’s just one big problem with that.
Two hours after the spire collapsed, French-Greek journalist Sotiri Dimpinoudis reported that there were no construction workers onsite at the time of the fire: Not surprising, since it was near 6pm local time, and the unionized French workers typically depart at 4pm or so. Very surprising given the almost unanimous determination by the media that a construction-related cause was at fault.
Oddly, the first reportedly started just 15 minutes after the last visitors left the cathedral.
It may well have been an accident. But here’s what the media is NOT telling you that may well suggest it was a deliberate act of sabotage, arson or even terrorism.First of Many Fires in French Churches in Past Several Months
France has been hit with a string of fires at Catholic churches, some of which occurred alongside desecration of sacred objects and acts of vandalism.
Less than one month ago, on March 19, the historic Saint-Sulpice — the 2nd largest church in Paris (next to Notre Dame) was set on fire in what police say was not an accident.
