Wtf if the FBI is there than the hostages are doomed News outlets slowing backing away from the synagogue hostage situation in Texas since it involves a Jihadist which doesn’t enhance their “Americans are bigots narrative”

I hope everyone gets out safe. Those poor folks. The Church of Rome consolidated its DOCTRINE building for the enslavers a College and Church in the foundation of the capitals of the world and M.
