Paris riots spread throughout north-east Posted at 8:20pm on 3 Nov 2005
Violence broke out in impoverished Paris suburbs for the seventh straight night, with rioters clashing with police and leaving a trail of torched cars and vandalised buildings.
Observers are pointing to France's failure to address deep problems of poverty and immigration, including tensions with its Muslim minority.
In Aulnay-sous-Bois in the worst-affected area of Seine-Saint-Denis, a police station was briefly besieged by gangs of youths while a gymnasium and a garage were set ablaze and a commercial centre vandalised.
A total of 40 vehicles, including two buses, were torched before midnight in nine towns in the Seine-Saint-Denis area, a high-unemployment largely-immigrant region. Police made 15 arrests.
Two primary schools were also damaged in the area northeast of the French capital.
The riots started last Thursday following the accidental electrocution of two youths, aged 15 and 17, who had scaled an electrical relay station's walls to escape a police identity check in Clichy-sous-Bois.
The firing of a police tear gas grenade against a mosque in Clichy-sous-Bois during clashes on Sunday also sparked rage in the suburb's large Muslim community.
We've seen more pictures of Joe Wilson's wife than of the widening riots in Paris and Denmark in the U.S. news...

I am almost indifferent.... but I suppose the French could use the exercize
wow. now these were Baptists or Amish this time?
Actually French Intelligence tried to warn us ahead of 9/11. Led us to the 20th hijacker who never made it to a plane, getting nabbed. But since there was no evidence of a wider conspiracy the judge did not allow his hard drive to be searched and he had made contact with other 9/11 hijackers. I think that's how it happened.
Hello, real world breaking down the door.
oh how I do loathe leftist judges
I'd suggest you get used to it, as the US has the same policy.
This observer is pointing to the muslim minority's refusal to even try to assimilate, which leads to perpetual poverty.
Send them back to whatever hell-hole they came from and let them riot over there.
Could you explain how our policy is similar to what is occuring in France?
I think he was just trying to follow the law. Didn't expect that an insane group of hijackers would come over to slit throats, crash airplanes and try to start Armageddon. I can see how it happens.
They had nabbed him after the flying lessons were funky (i.e. he didn't want to take off or land and claimed to be from France but didn't speak French when the instructor spoke French to him). It perhaps was another that the French were on, but because of the laws of the CIA / FBI having to operate independently (for example a U.S. intelligence plane cannot collect intel on American citizens) there were legal issues. Those things are being changed but it's funny territory with citizens. The hard part is the illegals here among us.
they nabbed a terror suspect. searching his computer HD should be routine
Won't stop until the body count starts to hurt the IslamoPukes.
The French capacity for capitulation is known only by John Kerry.
You mean Val, the THIRD wife???
The French Connection, Jaqueline, the SECOND wife is the real story behind Joey's lying intrigue.
"France is being taken over as I write this.... Thousands of web pages from Islamists in FRANCE are demanding that Muslims riot all over the place starting this Friday.
The Chief of Police in PARIS is asking for a curfew at night time in all the cities where rioting is taking place.
He even said France was experiencing a CIVIL WAR...his words not mine. "

I actually like France's methods of attaining terrorists more than our own. They can hold them as long as they want if they're suspected terrorists. They expedite them through the system and remove legal hurdles to send them packing.
Problem is, France has become too depedent on the vermin.
Aren't you all glad we have Mexico to the south and not Algeria? At least Mexicans are for the most part peaceful, Catholic, and usually willing to work (even if many do free-load).
Allowing Balkanization=bad. Always. Melting pots are good, tossed salads are not.
True, but unfortunately he didn't have a terror past, or it certainly wasn't known to him. He was an unknown, IIRC. OTOH, when Sami Al-Arian was shown supporting the causes of terror abroad, they (after 9/11) looked as his "fund-raising" and found funny links on the money which is why he's on trial in Florida now. I.e. the money went directly to families of suicide bombers (4 specific checks from an account he controlled). So much of this stuff is after the fact. I think ZM was arrested only days before 9/11 so the likelihood that they would have made the connections that fast is slim.
HOWEVER, had every American seen "Jihad in America" I think there's a possibility that some of it might have been stopped. I just stand amazed 4 years after 9/11 that more of the country hasn't woken up. However, I am pleasantly surprised that many I meet are watching their towns closely for this type of activity.
Pardon my french. I hope I spelled it wrong.
They are forever labeling themselves as terrorists and thugs in many countries. That's what's amazing. The British were tolerant. They attacked. The French were tolerant. They attacked. The Americans were tolerant. They attacked.
After watching all the stuff that has gone on for the past 5 years all over the world, I can't imagine why any decent person would want to remain in that. In free countries anyways. Small wonder Saudi Arabia makes it the death penalty for a muslim to convert to any other belief. That ought to be a lesson right there.
This is an intifada in Paris.
Seventh straight day of violence? Sounds to me as if these people were prepared. There seems to be some organization behind the violence.
Don't they have some levees they can dynamite?
might be Cirque du Soleil but you were pretty close. French III (and II) were some bad days in college, LOL. Here's some of what little I remember, LOL. And I'm probably spelling wrong.
pomme de terre - pommes = apples - pomme de terre - apples of the Earth = potatoes
I can now take apart the sentence from the Le Chic song from the '70's. We all knew what it meant; now I know how to take the sentence apart.
Voulez-voux - inversion of "Vous voulez" - i.e. "you would" so inversion makes it a question "Would you?"
couchez - reflexive verb of "se couchez" - to lie oneself down
avec moi - with me
ce soir - this evening
To be a gentlemen I won't put the whole sentence together in the post, LOL. And there would be a question mark at the end of course.
"Hier soir, j'ai manger ma voiture pour ma petite dejeuner"
Last night I ate my car for breakfast. LOL (and I'm sure I spelled it wrong, too).
A very big question mark.
Last night I ate my car for breakfast.
Now there's a handy phrase!
actually you spelled it correct. and i agree that is why I asked him to explain...I cannot see how there could be anything similar...
but some people do have brain farts and feel the need to type them out..
If you get a reply, ping me to it. It's cheaper than Cirque de Soleil, and I won't have to break my boycott.
I think you are absolutely correct.
My favorite came in a little French phrase book put together for laughs.
Vous etes un ange descendu sur terre.
You are an angel descended down to Earth.
However in situations like this I would probably say:
"Zee mooselimb is burning zee car with zee molotov cocktail! Mon Dieu!"
will do! :)
If it weren't for Free Republic, I wouldn't know about the Paris story at all.
I saw it on CBS Up to the Minute 30 minute repeating news overnight last night (BION). But yeah, this thing is starting to look like an intifada. Certainly bears watching.
And this is the result of two "Mooslim yutes" (Vinny)electrocuting themselves. Imagine if the cops actually shot them.
Sounds like it worked out perfectly.
Well, they could all go to the beaches of Dunkirk for evacuation to......Uh Oh. UK has the same problem. They're f**ked!
Prepared, organized, no doubt. Those that participate in the rioting, are muslim immigrants that just will not conform to French (infidel) laws and regulations, and, being primitive and uncultivated, only respect what they fear.
Only two remedies: immediate mass repatriations, or a .30 calibre machine gun on every police vehicle.
Substitute "Mexicans" for "Muslims".
Why, our obvious appeasement to gardeners and nannies of course...
LOL! Got a sudden flashback from "The Coneheads."
