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.

Where is Inspector Clouseau when you need him?
Perhaps an Exocet would do the job.
"They'll probably blame the riots on Israel."
apparently they are willing to use tear gas in a mosque, something we don't have the will to do.
With all due respect, you may bash the French all you like....after we seal our own southern border.
Sorry. Couldn't keep a straight face.
"Repeat after me....Islam is a religion of peace!"
Islam is a religion of pieces. That right?
IS PARIS BURNING? IS PARIS BURNING???
You are right PC is an american disease.
After the 4TH NIGHT???
I've heard squat about this in the media
No later than 2050...just two generations away.
"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."
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!
Religion can last. But the idea that Islam is a Religion has got to go.
Oh, yeah, sorry...
I can't remember all of the Problems of This Country I am obligated to mention each time I post. I also forgot the mention abortion, and Ted Kennedy, food stamps and pierced tounges.
A little help with the translation.
I agree/ Frances only viable solution to nip
this in the bud, are draconion actions and a
expedited volume deportation policy for law
Nicolas Sarkozy, France's David Dinkins.
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.
