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.
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.
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.

No, I am not exaggerating. Click the pic, go to "last," and read backwards.
If you are not informed about this stuff, you will be made sick. If you are informed, you will be made mad, all over again.

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.
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.
"Wow, you are one skilled debater."
Ah yes, another IDIOT crawls out of the woodwork!
"LOL....I love this place!"
Right On!......It's the only place you'll find idiots who want "debate."
Just as a FYI... flamethrowers are not regulated by the ATF (Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms). It's technically not classified as a firearm.
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.
To paraphrase Metallica "Honesty is my only excuse."
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.
"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."
"You have any doubts?
The whole 'beheading' thing did it for me."
Yes a few years ago this would have been hard to picture...it isn't now!
4 Then I saw thrones, and the people sitting on them had been given the authority to judge. And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their testimony about Jesus, for proclaiming the word of God. And I saw the souls of those who had not worshiped the beast or his statue, nor accepted his mark on their forehead or their hands. They came to life again, and they reigned with Christ for a thousand years.
5 This is the first resurrection. (The rest of the dead did not come back to life until the thousand years had ended.)
6 Blessed and holy are those who share in the first resurrection. For them the second death holds no power, but they will be priests of God and of Christ and will reign with him a thousand years.

It is sad. I have family who grew up in that area who've said the same thing.
