Sixth night of riots in Paris
CNN Associated Press Report ^ | Tuesday, November 1, 2005 | Unknown

Posted on 11/01/2005 4:12:09 PM PST by Ray66

Sixth night of riots in Paris Minister accused of inflaming tensions PARIS, France (AP) -- Violence erupted for a sixth night Tuesday in the troubled suburbs northeast of Paris with police firing rubber bullets and tear gas as they faced down gangs of youths in Aulnay-sous-Bois, according to witnesses. A store set afire in the nearby suburb of Bondy, France-Info radio reported. No trouble was immediately reported in Clichy-sous-Bois, where rioting began last Thursday following the accidental deaths of two teenagers. The latest violence broke out as Interior Minister Nicolas Sarkozy met in Paris with youths and officials from Clichy-sous-Bois. An Associated Press Television news team reported confrontations between about 20 police and 40 youths in Aulnay-sous-Bois with police firing tear gas and rubber bullets. France-Info said that about 100 fires burning in numerous suburbs of the Seine-Saint-Denis region, an area of soaring unemployment, delinquency and other urban ills. A carpet store in the town of Bondy was set afire, and cars were burning in Bondy and Sevran, France-Info reported. Police said 13 people were jailed following rioting late Monday and early Tuesday in Clichy-sous-Bois and three other suburbs. A total of 68 cars were torched in a handful of suburbs, LCI television reported, while police said 21 cars -- two of them police vehicles -- were set on fire in Clichy-sous-Bois on Monday night.

Is it true that these are areas heavily populated with a majority of muslims? Can anyone verify that?

If so, isn't it curious that is not mentioned anywhere in this snippet?

They had better start deporting. I know some of these rioters are 2nd generation, but ship their parents back and they have to go with them.

If true, then its omission is not all that curious when you realize that nothing must get in the way of the 'diversity is our greatest strength' platitude.

I really think they need to find a way to "talk about it". After all, shouldn't we all be able to put down our guns and settle things peacefully? can't we all just get along?

A little what-goes-around-comes-around. I'm so glad that the French are so "sophisticated" and know how to handle these things better than we do, the "crude stupid cowboy bullies" of the world!

I don't think so

This is an interesting article about Aulnay-sous-Bois written over a year ago:

To authorities, it is a "chaud" — or "hot" — area, a place where young Muslims, mainly of Moroccan and Algerian extraction, are turning to crime and radical Islam.

No mention of Muslims and not much at all in the way of video or pictures.

As usual, CNN sides with the fanatics.

And to think this started out as an official crack down on the lawlessness in "some" areas of Paris. Two youths get killed by accident and they get a weeks worth of rioting? The parents of the two that died wouldn't even talk to the police IIRC.

And than they send in only 20 cops? Are they asking for trouble?

Yes, on a post earlier today the neighborhoods were reported to be mostly "Muslim". Violence follows these people wherever they go.

FOX news, in the report I saw today, also did not mention the Muslim connection.

No, the French killed them all off years ago. Those who escaped the fires fled and immigrated to the US.

The French either need to surrender or find the live ammunition. The present status just endangers the police and provides more motivation for the Muslim rioters.

This is also a battle for leadership between Nicholas Sarkozi, the hardline Rudy Giuliani of France, and Dominique de Villepin, the classic French appeaser. Both men are planning to run for President in 2007. This will be a very interesting thing to watch.

Here is Sarkozy (Hungarian/Greek/Jewish lineage...not French).

Let me guess, you never lived through the 1960s, where there were several riots every summer (Newark, Detroit, Watts, DC, Chicago, etc.). This country has a long history of race riots.

See my post #34. America was having violent urban riots long before the French.

You can see it in his face. He called the troublemakers in the muslim neighborhoods "scum."

The muslims accused him of using "warlike" language.

Sarkozi is the Interior Minister and it is within his purview to take this garbage out to the dumpster. All Europe is watching.

Sarkozi has vowed to deport any cleric that preaches violence.

BTW: I am only 29 myself, so I know about the riots from older relatives who were cops during the Newark riots. Nevertheless, we must face the fact that this country has a long history of racial tension and violence, and that France is essentially seeing something similar to what happened in the US on a regular basis from 1964-1969.

Heh heh. I have noticed the resemblance, too. And Krauthammer is a tough cookie. Have you read his bio? MD from Harvard, chief resident in psychiatry at Mass General before he had a mysterious accident which left him paralyzed to some degree. Very determined dude...vy admirable.

LBJ gave them the Great Society (Welfare) as a bribe to stop burning down the cities. Most of the Muslims in France are already on welfare..what will they give now?
