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.
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.
