France defends policies after riot (Finally admitting Muslims are rioting)
CNN.OOM International ^ | October 31, 2005 Posted: 1942 GMT (0342 HKT) | Reuters

BOBIGNY, France (Reuters) -- French Interior Minister Nicolas Sarkozy defended his tough crime policies on Monday after a fourth night of riots in a Paris suburb in which tear gas was fired into a mosque.

Sarkozy, addressing police officers, vowed to find how tear gas had been fired into the Muslim place of worship, an incident which had helped fuel the disturbances.

Youths hurled rocks and set fire to cars in the northeastern Clichy-sous-Bois suburb of the French capital, where many immigrants and poor families live in high-rise housing estates notorious for youth violence.

French television said six police officers were hurt and 11 people arrested in violence partly fueled by the incident at the mosque. Sarkozy promised an inquiry.

"I am, of course, available to the imam of the Clichy mosque to let him have all the details in order to understand how and why a tear gas bomb was sent into this mosque," he told about 170 police officers at the prefecture.

After days of striving mightily to disguise the fact that the rioters were Muslims, the story is finally leaking out to the extent that even CNN (I know, I know) has to mention it.

These highrise housing "estates" refered to in the article are the slums built by the French to hid the Muslims out of sight of main stream Paris.

The war in/for france is starting.

Note to France: Don't expect any American troops.

Surely the French can defend their own country, right? (Snicker...snort...cough...)

Soon the BBC will pick up the story. They'll probably blame the riots on Israel.

Followed by the NYT who will blame it on Bush.

Followed by Al Jazerra, taking credit for Bin Laudin.

Remnants of the Ayatollah Khomeini. Hiding this purveyor of hatred if finally coming back to bite the French in the keister.

Couldn't have happened to a nicer bunch of weeners.

We admit we were wrong. We have once again run up the white flag. But, the real cause of these riots was Lance Armstrong using EPO during the 1999 Tour. This is the real reason for these riots. It was not our policies. These people were upset Armstrong used EPO. /sarcasm still on.

Unfortunately, I think we'll *have* to bail their bacon out again. Can't let Europe fall.

Actually, all kidding aside, the French are not weak on anti-terrorism at all. They're just *huge* hypocrites. They have some of the most extensive anti-terrorism powers laws on the books. And the French gendarmes have no qualms about physical force. It's just that it didn't suit their egos that USA would attain even more power by dominating middle east directly. So they chose opposition to the war, to the detriment of their own security. But don't mistake them for being weak on internal policing - they don't mess around. Problem is during the 80s they let it go too far. Now they're paying the price. And we will probably have to contribute to this...

They're tough on internal policing because they recruit Corsicans as gendarmes.

The USA had better wake up to our own Muslim problem. It's not just Ahmed at the 7-11, but also these homegrowns running with Farrakhan.

Religious freedom is critical to the ongoing American experiment, but I can't see how it can last while muslims continue to vie for worldwide domination by any means necessary (including using the religious tolerance of their foes as a smoke screen) and the destruction of Israel.

This is just an initial skirmish. The real battle won't start for a few more years. When it does, France will be destroyed or become Islamic (or both).

But, since France has chosen to be our enemy, why should we care?

The best course is to mimic Janet Reno and claim it didn't happen and even if it did, they fired first.

While it is quite clear that the Middle-Eastern countries and Muslims worldwide want to destroy Israel, it also quite clear(See Iran's marches, and their public statements)their--by their I mean the M.E. Goverments-- campaign of hatred is a distraction to mantain their own power. As a testament to this witness the campaigns of disinformation--regarding Israel-- promulgated by their goverments. By the way this isn't only my opinion, Ralph Peters in "Beyond Terror" echos my thoughts. Perhaps we should ban CAIR!

The answer is quite easy. If the religion contains as a fundamental belief that it is permitted to INITIATE violence against other religions, then the religion is not protected by the First Amendment. In fact, it should not be considered a religion at all.

Q.E.D., radical Islam (and I also would argue a lot of Islam, besides Sufis) gets the heave-ho.

A policy of violent self defense against violence by other religions, quite rightly, does not trigger this exclusion.

Muslims agreed to quit rioting if Paris agrees to turn Notre Dame Cathedral into a mosque, destroy all western art and artifacts in the Louvre and broadcast Muslim prayers five times a day from the Eiffel Tower.

Paris has agreed and only pleaded for an additional 48 hours to hook up the broadcast system.

This is sarcasm, I think. It can't be true? With the French you never know! (sarcasm)

The last time I checked FreeRepublic was set up by Jim Robinson to discuss a wide variety of problems, legal, social, and political Issues.

If you are now taking the position that ALL POSTS MUST DEAL WITH ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION, I suggest you get JimRob's approval for your edict.

If you are right, I'll be unsubscribed by the end of the day.
