French Insurgents Riot
Freedom Fighters Union of France

Posted on 11/04/2005 8:09:29 AM PST by WBL 1952

Friday, November 04, 2005

LE BLANC MESNIL, France — Small, mobile groups of freedom fighting French Insurgents hit Paris' riot-shaken suburbs with waves of arson attacks, torching hundreds of cars, as unrest entered its second week Friday and spread to other towns in France.

Car torchings by freedom fighter Insurgents are a daily fact of life in France's tough suburbs, with thousands burned each month, police say. Police intelligence has recorded nearly 70,000 incidents of urban violence this year.

The unrest has laid bare discontent simmering in suburbs and among immigrant families who feel trapped by poverty, unemployment, and poor education.

France's Muslim population, estimated at 5 million, is Western Europe's largest and they often complain of police harassment, job discrimination, and me.

Some 1,300 riot police fanned out overnight across Seine-Saint-Denis, as the unrest entered its second week and followed Prime Minister Dominique de Villepin's (search) vow Thursday to restore order.

"I will not accept organized Insurgents making the law in France. This is my France, not theirs." Villepin said at the Senate in between emergency meetings called over the riots.

Perhaps they could adopt Germany's?

We need a road map to peace. Maybe Bush can use some of his foreign policy muscles to setup a conference in Oslo.

...and these "freedom-fighting" losers think they can alleviate this by taking actions that exacerbate their poverty, unemployment, and poor education.

Excellent idea! Maybe the "insurgents" need their own homeland. We could put a "process" into play, where the French nationals have to remove their settlements incrementally.

I urge France to take no action at this time. We need a UN resolution first. Maybe more than one.

Why not give sanctions a chance to work first?

Since there's no world-wide coalition of teaming partners, the French should pull out. They need to be hauled before the UN Security Council. Frog-marching their UN ambassador should be high on the agenda.

When will America be funding and arming the mohammedan insurgents and demanding that Paris be divided for the new Europistanian Union state? Are the New Soviets training the mohammedan insurgency security forces yet? We need answers if there is ever going to be peace! /s

Right. Maybe this will be good for France. It's an opportunity to get rid of their oppressive dictatorship, and replace it with a freedom loving democratic government. In fact, if it works in France, it might be an example for all of Europe.

Back in the 1990s, the French sneered at America for the Los Angeles riots. As the Chicago Sun-Times reported in 1992: "the consensus of French pundits is that something on the scale of the Los Angeles riots could not happen here, mainly because France is a more humane, less racist place with a much stronger commitment to social welfare programs." President Mitterrand, the Washington Post reported in 1992, blamed the riots on the "conservative society" that Presidents Reagan and Bush had created and said France is different because it "is the country where the level of social protection is the highest in the world." quoted from Instapundit.

Insurgents? Call them resistance, just like stinking French call the Iraq terrorists as resistance. Also praise for Basque resistance to resist illegal occupation by the imperialist France. Call it another Algeria Independence War, an endless and muddy war just like the stinking French call the Iraq War another Vietnam while it isn't. I guess France is paying back their sins for the hypocracy they have done for centuries, colonizing countries, and oppsoing the liberation wars lead by America. Let France go anarchy and cease to exist, replaced by republic of Basque. Tell Europe that Jihad is spreading, and the days for stinking liberals are over, soon to be the dark age for the people to obey Sharia law and have death penalty laws they have rejected for decades.

And rightfully so. I have travelled in France since the 1970's and it has been painfully clear to me that the French are "pleine de merde" when it comes to their own racism. Racism is deeply rooted in French culture and is the source of their (unearned) sense of "superiority." The riots have held the mirror up and the frogs don't like what they see. They won't change. They will figure out ways to rationalize and evade the hard facts they have been confronted with. The are dhimmis in their own country.

Someone was calling them Paristinians on another thread. Perhaps France should concede land to these "freedom fighting insurgents" (gag reflex activated!).

There is nothing about this situation that a few massive welfare payments won't solve.

I wonder how the failed immigration policies in France will affect the popularity of the Neo-Nazi's in Germany and the call for isolationism. Could Germany be scared into drastic reactions?

It's just a question but the other European countries must be wondering about what is happening or will happen in their own back yards.

This whole mess will get a lot uglier before it gets better now that padora's box is open.

I demand 'self-determination' for the Islamo-thugs... Land for Peace!

Just like the Pali's... these dung-dwellers need a state of their own to freely befoul. The French can begin by plowing their vineyards under and constructing filthy, stone-dwellings(just like on the Gaza Strip) without plumbing.

I was just thinking the same thing, my anus is bleeding so bad I will need a cork to stop it. My heros Baldwin, Fatso Moore and Babs the Snout are too valuable to be keeled over and beheaded. Hollywood will cease to esist!!! The obvious answer is land for peace, give the ragheads Paris and the area around, I know that the terror will desist at once. The isslimes are not asking for very much.

Happens here doesn't it? Sometime after the city's sports team wins a championship, but more often after some imagined "offense" against the "community".

Aren't a lot of the Legionnaires from French North Africa? Or are they German, English and the odd American or Swiss?

Maybe the French should ask the Brits to loan them a few elements of the Gurkha Battalion.
