Because the most important thing here is that nobody even asks if the burning of the Notre Dame Cathedral had anything to do with the mass Islamic immigration France has undergone over the past several decades:

That was sent at 5pm US Eastern Time, meaning about midnight Paris time.
What a speedy investigation.
But we all just know it couldn’t have been Islamic terrorism, even though Muslims were photographed at the scene with huge smiles on their faces as the ancient cathedral was engulfed in flames in the background:
Yes, it is utterly outrageous for anyone to ask whether or not this was arson.
Thousands of Muslims were reacting with smiley faces on a Facebook stream of the fire:

Even if Muslims didn’t do it, many are reacting as if they did, or at the very least as if this is a victory for them.
But still, it’s a “Conspiracy Theory” to wonder if terrorists were behind this.
IT WAS AN ACCIDENT, OKAY?

And in 2016, a 22 year old Muslim woman was caught trying to blow up the Notre Dame Cathedral with a car full of gas canisters. She was sentenced to prison three days ago:
Only THREE days ago in France one of three women involved in a foiled plot in 2016 to blow up a car packed with gas canisters near the Notre Dame cathedral in Paris was sentenced to eight years in prison.
Hoping this is one hell of a terrible coincidence.https://t.co/tA4If5J4e0

And just last month, a famous French church, St. Sulpice, was set on fire:
“While Notre Dame is undoubtedly the most well-known landmark to be affected, Paris’ second largest church, Saint-Sulpice, briefly burst into flames on March 17, the fire damaging doors and stained glass windows on the building’s exterior. Police later reported that the incident had not been an accident.
“The images of flames in Saint Sulpice church this weekend are one more example of the violence committed against Catholics,” said Philippe Gosselin and Annie Genevard of France’s National Assembly, tying the incident into a wider trend of attacks on Catholic places of worship.
February saw a series of such attacks across France. In one incident, a cross of human excrement was smeared on the wall of the Notre Dame des Enfants in Nimes, the vandals also looting the church and spreading consecrated wafers in the garbage.
The same month, the altar at Saint-Alain Cathedral in Lavaur was set on fire, while statues and crosses were smashed throughout the premises. Two teenagers were later arrested in relation to the incident.”
But yes, the mere suggestion that the burning of Notre Dame was not an accident is so far-fetched, so inappropriate, and so dangerous that Fox New’s Shep Smith lectured a French politician for even entertaining the possibility:
What a complete jackass Shep Smith is.
IT WAS AN ACCIDENT!
For what it’s worth, that French politician, Phillippe Karsenty said this before Shep Smith erupted on him: “Of course you will hear the story of the politically correct which will tell you it is probably an accident.”
Many in France are not buying the “official” story.
Whether it was terrorism or simply negligence, the Burning of the Notre Dame Cathedral is unavoidably a sign of the decay of Western Civilization.
Choose one: Either Christendom has been overrun by Islam, or Christendom has lost the will to preserve its most sacred sites.
The Notre Dame fire is a metaphor for the attitude of Western European leaders towards their own national cultures over the past few decades.

Whether it was terrorism or neglect, this is a terrible day for all of us. The sorry state of Western Civilization was on full display as that 850 year old Cathedral burned.
As for me, my two cents is that when one of the important sites in Christianity, one of the most recognizable and iconic cathedrals on the planet, goes up in flames during the holiest week of the Christian calendar, I’m sorry, but I just refuse to believe that’s a. a coincidence and b. an accident.
