Leftist or Islamist extremism caused the fire at Notre Dame

Summary of Disinformation

It is too early to rule out “natural causes” for the fire at Notre Dame of Paris, but it is possible that the cathedral was set ablaze either by the Yellow Vests as an attack on Macron, or by Islamist extremists. Even if the Islamist are not responsible for the fire, the very fact that some young supporters of radical Islam has expressed joy about this event is horrible. The fire from Notre Dame will set all of Europe on fire.

Disproof

Unfounded claims, presented without any evidence.

Hinting on conspiracies is an instrument often used by pro-Kremlin disinformation outlets, suggesting for example "False Flag Operations" are behind current event like the Skripal Case.
