Paris Riots Hit Night 10
Fox News ^ | November 5, 2005 | Fox News

Posted on 11/05/2005 7:52:35 PM PST by JBGUSA

ACHERES, France — Riots that started in Paris' lower-class suburbs and resulted in 250 arrests of predominantly Muslim youths Saturday moved into the capital of France early Sunday morning.

By 1 a.m., a spokesman for the national police reported 13 vehicles torched in the capital, and 607 vehicles burnt overall during the 10th straight night of rioting. Totals are expected to rise by morning.

*snip*

The violence — originally concentrated in neighborhoods northeast of Paris with large immigrant populations — is forcing France (search) to confront anger long-simmering in its suburbs, where many Africans and their French-born children live on society's margins, struggling with unemployment, poor housing, racial discrimination, crime and a lack of opportunity.

Youths armed with gasoline bombs lit vehicles, a nursery school and other targets on fire as they made their way through higher-class towns and to the capital.

*snip*

In quiet Acheres, on the edge of the St. Germain forest west of the capital, arsonists burned a nursery school, where part of the roof caved in, and about a dozen cars in four attacks over an hour that the mayor said seemed "perfectly organized."

Children's photos clung to the blackened walls, and melted plastic toys littered the floor. Residents gathered at the school gate demanded that the army be deployed or suggested that citizens band together to protect their neighborhoods.

Mayor Alain Outreman (search) tried to cool tempers.

"We are not going to start militias," he said. "You would have to be everywhere."

In one particularly malevolent attack, youths in the eastern Paris suburb of Meaux (search) prevented paramedics from evacuating a sick person from a housing project. They pelted rescuers with rocks, then torched the awaiting ambulance, an Interior Ministry official said.

You are correct. The real men, the tough Euro men were mostly killed off in those wars, leaving the pussified, cowardly euro metro-sexual male as role models!!

Don't worry. John Kerry (Pussy-MA), the haughty, French-looking candidate from Massachusetts, who, by the way, served in Viet Nam, and won three--THREE!!--Purple Hearts, will ride to the rescue.

Just out of curiosity...there are 95 entries on Ebay for flamethrower. At least half appear to be toys.

This is terrorism and nothing else. This nonsensical excuse about "poverty and despair" being the reason for the destruction in Paris is just the cover the media give them, similar to how they refer to terrorists in Iraq as "militants".

Does the "vehicles burnt" scorecard strike anyone as a little odd???

Not really. In fact we should applaud this goodwill gesture by the peace-loving peoples of France. Recall that Al Gore (who by the way *REALLY* won the 2000 election before the Supreme Court stole it for Bush) said in his seminal Earth in the Balance that the internal combustion engine was a greater threat to the survival of humanity than nuclear weapons.
So the French are merely practicing that enlightened European unilateral disarmament.

Full Disclosure: The term "seminal" seems more appropriate for Clinton than Gore, n'est-ce pas?

Those were people in turmoil for whatever reason - their underlying motivation, right or wrong, was survival.

They weren't the muslims seeking to take over at all costs, to kill, rape and maim for the sake of their religious beliefs. That's a totally different kind of scenario. Muslims will DIE, while killing you, for what they believe in. Those souls in Los Angeles, in New Orleans would not choose to die on purpose.

"Take these three together and you have a Europe that is incapable of direct, effective action."

You're talking about European governments, not what lies in the peoples' hearts. Minds can be manipulated for awhile, but intuition, instinct and the will to survive lies in the heart. When 'the people' are threatened as they are now, instinct and logic will surface and take control. If there were another 9/11 type attack in America, I believe you'd see PC get flushed down the toilet faster than yesterday's dinner.

PC may look like a 'King' with firm control in the West, but it's a 'king' whose reign is almost over. That's why the media and the libs fight so viciously to maintain it. It's hold on people is a superfluous one, and it will slip like a greased glove when the people finally realize they've been duped and their very existence is at stake. I think the end of PC is around the corner and coming fast. It's an insurrection or major terror attack away from being extinquished. In France, it may be ending right now. I just hope it's not too late.

The French government is showing how weak they are right now- and we all know how terrorists love to exploit a nation's weakness.
Has anyone noted that france has nukes - which I hope are better protected than their suburbs. :-(

Not really. We copied it from both the English and the Swiss. The Swiss still adhere more closely to their 18th century model than we do to ours.

There's a slew of muslims in Detroit, I guess that's slummy enough. Watch for the muslim 'slums' in the West to become the trojan horses of the 'mujahedeen'.

Revolting cat! - "The present situation (15 million of unassimilated Muslims in Europe, up from 0 millions 50 years ago,) is the natural consequence of this retreat, of this guilt over the past sins real or imagined of the West."

That was the result of their need for labor, not a desire to dilute themselves.

Revolting cat! - "Europeans exterminated (or watched the extrmintaion) their last restless unassimilated minority that produced a few anarchists and bomb throwers, only to invite another one into their midst (out of guilt,mostly, I think) that produces thousands of anarchists and bomb throwers, and now don't know what to do with it. It doesn't look good and the solution is not in sight.

I.e. the Jews?

"Not to sound tinfoilish, but the more I see this stuff with Muslims, the more I believe the battle of Armageddon will be Islam vs. the World."

My pastor was giving a Bible study about the end times once and stated that the Anti-Christ would rise out of Europe and be a muslim.

I disagree. Your assessment may have been true at the turn of the century, but not now. The two brutal world wars of the last century have resulted in a pacified Europe. The scourge of socialism and secularism have eaten away at the European soul. The last nail in the coffin is political correctness and guilt from imagined colonial crimes. This attitude is ingrained in Euorpean whites to an astoishing degree (of course, it doesn't stop them from being anti-Semetic). Take these three together and you have a Europe that is incapable of direct, effective action.

John speaking:

Interesting "counterpoints".

I forsee two possible futures for Europe:

1. Eurabia
-or-
2. A second Holocaust that will make the first one seem tame by comparison.

I can't see a "middle path". There is no way, there can never be a way, for the growing legions of Muslims to "integrate" into European nations and cultures, because European freedoms and cultures are anathema to Islam.

Again, Eurabia or the expulsion (or worse) of Islamics from the European continent.

I see a second Holocaust. They'll do it differently. The battle with the Muslims will shift to battlefield format, with instructions to "shoot to kill". I cannot predict the magnitude, but it will be breathtaking.

somehow, I find it hard to believe that Europeans are bending over backwards for Arabs because they feel guilty about Jews! I don't see Europe clamping down on anti-Semitism very effectively.

German Jews of the 1920's and 30's were very well assimilated into German society (and there were only about 300,000 in the whole country). Most of them were patriotic Germans, which makes the Holocaust even more shocking. No, I think Europe tolerates the Muslims >because< they are anti-Semites.

It's amazing that no one has been killed yet.

How would anyone know, as poor as the reporting has been? You may just have to settle for a running total of how many cars have been burned.

I hope you're right too, but my gut tells me otherwise. The essence of being a liberal is to ignore reality at all cost when it conflicts with what you think should be true. What will it take to turn a Liberal into a Conservative? Probably nothing short of having a catastrophic experience that causes you to rethink your most basic assumptions (ever see "Death Wish"?)

Also, as the Muslim population grows, the cost of taking action gets progressively higher--but its a slow process. Solving the problem will be painful & ugly now, but it will be nearly impossible later. The French think they have time and will opt for more liberal solutions first. This will be a fatal mistake. My take is that France will dither for another 15-20 years before realizing that the frog is indeed in boiling water. By that time the options will either be surrender (by emigration to the USA) or full-scale civil war.

For me, the beginning of the end was when I was 15. I watched the news coverage of the 1972 Olympic Massacre and nearly wretched. I saw reams of analysis on "what the Arabs were really angry about". Little coverage was given to the fact that six athletes had just been shot at point blank range.

Mind you, my natural father (who died shortly after) and I distributed campaign literature for McGovern, so we were still solidly liberal.

It did not last long.

If war between Islam and the West occurs in twenty years, the holocaust of abortion and 'family planning' will manifest itself as the un-Godly, deadly practice it really is. Islamofacists are multiplying like rabbits in Springtime, while (as Pat Buchanan has already stated), the West is aborting and birth-controlling itself into oblivion.

Because of abortion and political correctness the future is certain, they increase, we shrink. They get stronger, we get weaker.

Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, used to be almost entirely Italian, now, there are so many burka-clad Muslims and mosques everywhere that people call Bay Ridge Bay Ruit.

it's really sad, it doesn't even look like America anymore, and no one speaks English.
