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.
Difference though in that many Mexicans that came here legally even some illegally feel more allegiance to America then the do Mexico... they make up one of the largest groups of foreign nationals fighting in our armed forces right now... I don't think the Muslims that are doing this over in Europe are of that same ilk.
This is a stupid question, but does anyone know if, overall, this is as bad as it sounds? Is this the sort of thing the police over there are capable of putting down w/ anything short of extreme force?
Makes you wonder what it will take before European states start mass deportations.
LOL.... I never thought of that angle...:)
We can only hope....but those socialists are pretty slow sometimes...
I lived in Paris for 14 years.
Even in the mid-eighties, French people were telling me that the suburbs ( don't think of them in the same vein as Suburban America) around Paris were a ring of time bombs waiting to explode.
I can't say I am at all surprised. When law and order goes, and lawlessness goes unchecked, anarchy results.
Chirac fiddles, and debates, while Paris burns.
Surely not. It can't be the peace loving Mooslims. My TV tells me it's just another lot of poor underprivileged downtrodden repressed people. Surely my TV is not lying to me. How dare you sir!
See, appeasment works. The dhimmis of Europe are doing just fine.
"Is this the sort of thing the police over there are capable of putting down w/ anything short of extreme force?"
The French special police , the CRS. are totally capable of handling these riots. They are equipped with full riot gear, body armor and machine guns.
The government is afraid of these Islamists. Afraid they will attack,commit terror, etc. They are afraid to punish lawlessness for fear there will be retaliation. There are debates on in France now with the Left condemning the government for calling the rioter sand looters "criminals" and "delinquints".
Maybe they should all sit down for tea and talk it through Shame on them.
They have never learned that appeasement never works.
Not many do. Unless we keep up our appeasement activities why we might start seeing dandelions in our yards and diaper rash on our kids.
Danged gardeners and nannies...they hold all the aces.
LOL...... Oh no the diper rash revolution!
Chirac and the Islamofascist prattle while Paris burns.
in impoverished Paris suburbs.This is crap,they are living better in these areas then any city in North Africa. Many of these people are arabs from the big cities of North Africa.They brag when they go home with their french "ladies" how much better off they are.If they are so impoverished I would expect them to take this downtown and thats when the fun will really start,big time.
Once again the Moslems cost Europe more unrest and violence.
When will they learn to quit the liberal B.S. and treat them as the enemy's of the State they are.
Maybe they should hire GW to learn how.
Ops4 God Bless America!
Many muslims enter Europe legally since many European countries have far more lenient immigration laws. Many muslims in Europe are hard working and loyal to their new country. Lastly, most European countries barely have forces that could realistically be called armies.
I hope it is correct that most muslims are loyal to their adopted countries if not its gonna be ugly
I will fish out one from an earlier post:
Muslims are the most insanely paranoid, stupid, ignorant, wicked and cruel bunch of brainwashed humanoids to ever walk on and defile the face of this good earth.
Note I said "many" not "most".
sorry almost 4am here comprehension skills are not the best... :)
This violence is a good thing.They are sticking it to the people who stuck it to us.Paris the center of anti-americanism.Europe can be in denial for just so long. Hoorah
How long before they decide to bomb establishment targets? Perhaps a few roadside bombs? CNN ran a puff piece on this last night interviewing various French Muslim bigshots, who said they were French first and Muslims second. (There's a whopper.) All they demanded was a fair slice of the pie, recognition, respect, decent living conditions, good jobs, yada yada yada. Evidently CNN is buying this nonsense.
I bet many of these Muslims are delusional enough to believe they are on the verge of creating an Islamic state in France.
"They have no work. They have nothing to do. Put yourself in their place," said Abderrahmane Bouhout, president of the Clichy-sous-Bois mosque, where a tear gas grenade exploded Sunday evening. Local youths suspected a police attack, and authorities are investigating.
The violence cast doubt on the success of France's model of seeking to integrate its large immigrant community its Muslim population, at an estimated 5 million, is Western Europe's largest by playing down differences between ethnic groups. But rather than be embraced as full and equal citizens, immigrants and their French-born children often complain of police harassment and of being refused jobs, housing and opportunities.
"No matter what the politicians say, some neighborhoods are all but lost," said Patrice Ribeiro national secretary of the Synergie police officers' union.
CNN's poll today has 47% of Frenchmen calling for the deployment of troops into Paris suburbs. 41% want a curfew imposed on Paris. The remainder are asking the police to withdraw away from all Paris suburbs.
Divide Paris and create an Islamic state in France. Give the mooselimbs a lot of money and the responsibility for their own security. Convene the General Assembly and censure France.
The French have known for a while now that the subs. are a fertile recruiting ground,
We should realize this is happening right here in America, in our own poor neighborhoods, in prisons and jails...the recruiting is happening.
I guess the answer to Adolph's question is, after 60 some years, Yes.
The French blogs are now calling for all French Muslims to riot on Friday (tomorrow) in 700 cities all over France.
Oh yeah, Burn baby burn, DISCO Inferno!!
Last night, I asked my wife if she had heard anything about the Muzzie Riots in the French sub'urbs, of course she had NOT.
When there IS news fit to print, you can be sure the LSM will not report it.
Paris now...America shortly:
The whackjobs are becoming more "out there" and hardened in their unsupportable beliefs. You can't even discuss issues with them anymore...they don't want to hear it.
Actually, I have a bad feeling about this for Friday. Just as you are reading those blogs, so are others. This is going to be a long weekend.
I hope that Maine is watching closely and considering its gigantic Somali population.
I think they should go to the UN. Have a resolution passed against the rioters. Call for cooperation "or else". That should stop all of this chaos.
Maybe John Kerry will go over and negotiate the peace.... haha
I don't think it's very bad at all. Heck, Europe has seen riots worse than this at soccer games.
Will the Bretons be next? They were badly oppressed at one time by the French. If a minority wishes for change, all they have to do is burn a few cars and buildings, toss some rocks
Mass deportations? Would that give them political refugee status and legal entry to the USA?
Nothing like throwing gasoline on a fire... here's a fresh "click the pic" graphic and link:
Is Paris Burning? ( Religion of Peace Alert )
Click the picture:
Noveau Beirut. IIRC, Lebanon was also under french control at one time.
there is one real wonderful silver lining to all this happening in france right now. just imagine if france needs fellow eu help. who would send police, troops etc etc? GERMANY. id actually think of going to paris if i could see german forces of any sort doing an official work on the streets of paris, that would be so dam cool.
WOW! I thought France was the Utopian Mecca according to the Liberals? Could they have been wrong? OOPS
The French Foreign Legion is now headquartered up in Alsace. They could be in Paris in an afternoon.
