    Boston Herald ^ | April 14, 2014
    PARIS — French investigators began taking DNA samples Monday from 527 male students and staff at a high school — including boys as young as 14 — as they searched for the assailant who raped a teenage girl on the closed campus. Testing began Monday at Fenelon-Notre Dame high school in western France. All those who received summonses last week were warned that any refusal could land them in police custody, and no one rejected the sweeping request to test the high school's male population. The testing of students, faculty and staff at the school is expected to last through...

    ROCK HILL — Three Rock Hill teens have been arrested in the alleged gang assault on two other teenagers, one of whom police say was shot in the leg with a flare gun two weeks ago. Police on Thursday arrested Malik McCullough, 18, Thomas Hagins, 17, and Dontavious Gordon, 17, charging them with third-degree assault and battery by a mob, armed robbery and criminal conspiracy, according to Rock Hill police documents. By Friday morning, they were held at the city jail awaiting afternoon bond hearings. At about 8 p.m. Mar. 13, police were sent to a Highland Street home after...

    The Jewish National Fund held an event honoring Israel in the heart of Paris Sunday, but the real reason for the event was a desire by Israeli authorities to support French Jews in a time of trouble. Over 15,000 people, most of them Jews, are expected to attend the two-day event – an exhibit titled “Israel Today and Tomorrow.” The event received unprecedented security: central streets were cordoned off, and police snipers were placed on rooftops. Ultranationalists gathered with the intent of marching on the event, but were blocked by police – both uniformed and undercover – a long distance...

    A protest in Paris against French President Francois Hollande turned on Sunday to an anti-Semitic demonstration and ended in clashes between police and protesters. […] The march was organized by a group of some 50 small and mainly right-wing organizations and, while it failed to attract bigger anti-Hollande movements, Kol Yisrael radio reported that it was attended by neo-Nazi movements and Muslim extremists. The demonstrators chanted anti-Semitic and anti-Israeli slogans, used the “quenelle” anti-Semitic gesture that was invented by controversial comic Dieudonné and sang the anthem of the Nazi collaborators during World War II, according to Kol Yisrael. …

    A leading French politician described London as a ‘suburb of Paris’ today as the two cities continued a war of words over which is the most popular in the world. Anne Hidalgo, who until recently was President Francois Hollande’s Socialist culture minister before running for mayor of the French capital, said there was more crime in the English capital, less entrepreneurial businesses starting up, and fewer foreign visitors. But she did concede that there was more dog waste on Paris pavements, and that notoriously rude Parisians 'should be kinder'. UK-based tourist agency Visit Britain claimed London broke the 16-million visitor...

    The much lamented tradition of torching cars to mark the arrival of the new year claimed more than 10 per cent fewer vehicles this year By French standards, it was a peaceful New Year’s Eve. Only 1,067 cars and vans were destroyed by arson, a “significant” reduction of more than 10 per cent compared to the number of vehicles set ablaze last year, according to Manuel Valls, the Interior Minister. All things considered, it was a “positive result”, Mr Valls told a press conference on Wednesday. He said he regretted the deaths of three people in knife attacks in Paris...

    A man wrongly accused of being a pedophile was beaten unconscious, set on fire, and killed by two neighborhood "vigilantes." Investigators say the brutal violence in the Bristol, England neighborhood appears to be the result of a vicious rumor mill and a misguided police investigation. According to the Daily Mail, 44-year-old Bijan Ebrahimi was arrested in July after being accused of taking "inappropriate" images of neighborhood children. But after an investigation, police determined that Ebrahimi was actually taking pictures of kids he suspected of vandalizing his prized garden. Despite being released by police with no charges, the Daily Mail reports...

    A French jeweller who shot dead a teenager who held him up at gunpoint was under house arrest at a secret location Saturday after being charged with his murder. Stephan Turk, 67, shot his 18-year-old victim in the back as he and another robber were fleeing on a scooter with gems stolen from Turk's shop in the centre of Nice on the French Riviera. The thieves had punched and kicked the jeweller before forcing him to open his safe at gunpoint, behaviour that Turk's supporters believe should be taken into account when judging his heat-of-the-moment decision to run after them...

    Mrs Le Pen, leader of the National Front, told a rally in 2010 that the places in France where Muslims worshipped in the streets were "occupied territory". "For those who want to talk a lot about World War Two, if it's about occupation, then we could also talk about it (Muslim prayers in the streets), because that is occupation of territory," she said at a gathering in Lyon. In December 2012, French authorities asked the European Parliament to lift Mrs Le Pen's immunity as a European Parliament member (MEP) so she could be prosecuted. The BBC reports that a secret...

According to Drew Davison of the Ft. Worth Star-Telegram, Scheppers was attacked by a group of young males in downtown Cleveland after going out for a food run. The assault took place about two blocks away from the team's hotel, and as a result Scheppers was unavailable to pitch on Friday night after suffering a laceration near his left eye...

What the 37-year-old can’t understand is why they did it. They didn’t take his $500 bicycle. They ignored his cellphone. They didn’t want the $20 in his wallet. In fact, the victim said, “I didn’t hear a word.” And the lack of apparent motive is haunting the married father of two, who uses...

    The nightly rioting in Stockholm that establishment media ascribes merely to “youths,” is being carried out by Muslim immigrants. Muslim immigrants in Sweden now total slightly more than 6 percent of the population, providing additional support for the maxim that a Muslim population of 5 percent is a tipping point for political turmoil. In other countries, Muslim immigrants at that point have begun to seek concessions, including, typically, the right to govern themselves by Shariah, or Islamic law. In Sweden, the Muslim population has doubled in the last 14 years, with Muslims now accounting for over 41 percent of Sweden’s...

    Youth gang riots in the Swedish capital Stockholm have entered fifth straight night. Hundreds of mostly immigrant teenagers tore through the suburbs, smashing windows and burning cars in the country’s worst outbreak of violence in years. At least six vehicles were torched throughout the city late on Thursday while the police called for reinforcements from other Swedish cities bracing for further unrest. Firefighters were putting out flames that engulfed several cars and a school in immigrant-dominated areas of Stockholm. The night before, the fire brigades were called to some 90 different blazes. On the fourth night of violence, youths torched...

It seems underlying tensions from high youth unemployment and rising nationalism against the nation's large immigrant population have been catalyzed by this seemingly unrelated event. As the Daily Mail notes, immigrant ghettos have been created where unemployment is high and there are few opportunities for residents with left-leaning commenters adding that the riots represented a 'gigantic failure' of government policies, which had underpinned the rise of ghettos...

    The father of a Jewish family was badly beaten and the family home was completely trashed on Sunday by local youths in Marseille, France. Residents in their Jewish neighborhood are stunned following the incident. Marseilles is home to some 80,000 Jews – 10 percent of the general population but a small fraction compared to the 250,000 Muslims with whom they also live. It has been relatively quiet France's second-largest city this year, compared to other areas in the country where violent anti-Semitism has been on the rise.

This, residents note, is not the approach taken by the United States Department of State. “We’re waiting for the president of the Republic, for his ministers,” said Gilbert Roger, the mayor of Bondy. “And we see the ambassador of the United States.” The United States Embassy in Paris has formed a network of partnerships with local governments, advocacy groups, entrepreneurs, students...

    GRENOBLE, France (AFP) - Rioters exchanged gunfire with police in the French city of Grenoble early Saturday, setting fire to shops and cars after police shot dead a man accused of robbing a casino.

Interior Minister Brice Hortefeux was to visit the city Saturday afternoon, his ministry said. The rioting started after a memorial service for 27-year-old Karim Boudouda, who died 24 hours earlier in a shootout with police after allegedly holding up...

    STOCKHOLM — Swedish dockworkers are set to launch a week-long boycott of Israeli ships and goods to protest Monday's takeover of a Gaza-destined aid flotilla, a union spokesman said Saturday. Nine activists died after IDF troops intercepted the convoy. Nearly 700 activists had joined that operation, most of them aboard the lead boat from Turkey that was the scene of the violence.

    Via Ace, whose post you should read if only for the brilliance of his headline. Some of you will be tempted twice over to skip this: It’s long, and you’ve already seen the most dramatic bit. Don’t skip it. Force yourself through it, because it happens to be one of the most genuinely depressing clips ever posted on Hot Air. Everything about this is an utter, unmitigated disgrace — the attack on Vilks, the excruciating passivity of most of the crowd, the sheer thuggery of these shrieking, lunatic, barbarian bastards, and of course the killer moment at around 8:45 when...

    Women screaming “Allahu Akbar” The "Religion of Peace" goes to church. [view video] But the video is remarkable in a different way: It shows dozens of Muslims repeatedly screaming “Allahu Ackbar” in what looks like religious ecstasy over violence committed in their name, and joy over witnessing an attempted murder as punishment for blasphemy. This happened today in Sweden, mind you, not during the Middle Ages nor even in 2001 in Taliban-controlled Afghanistan. Right now, in what is supposed to be the most liberal and progressive nation in the world.

    Edgy Hub residents voiced outrage and resignation over the scourge of seemingly endless street violence yesterday as the city reeled from four murders in three days - including the slaughter Sunday of a 14-year-old boy whose only crime was taking his brother’s scooter for a spin around the block. “All these kids keep dying on street corners. Dorchester is not safe, not anymore. Every time I pass a lamppost, I see candles and teddy bears,” Jonelle Seigler, 21, a lab technician, said of the makeshift shrines that have become a frequent site in her neighborhood.
