Yesterday, France was stunned by the brutal murder of an elderly priest by two "ISIS soldiers." In response to this atrocity, Marion Le Pen, granddaughter of National Front founder Jean-Marie Le Pen and current member of the French parliament, tweeted that she had joined the military reserves and that all patriotic young people should too.
Face à la menace qui pèse sur la France, j'ai décidé de rejoindre la réserve militaire.— Marion Le Pen (@Marion_M_Le_Pen) July 26, 2016
J'invite tous les jeunes patriotes à faire de même.
"Faced with the threat to France, I decided to join the military reserve. I invite all patriotic young people to do the same."
She also tweeted a picture of Fr. Hamel, the victim of Tuesday's attack, calling him a martyr from Islamic terrorism.

Le Pen, who is 26, is one of the youngest members of parliament in the modern French era. She was first elected at the age of 22.
