Le Petit Jihad Francais redux

Ah the Muslim `youths' of Paris are frolicking again...

For the third night in a row, riots have broken out in those north Paris suburbs known in France as `La Zone', areas de facto ceded to France's restive Muslim population, where the police only go in armed bands.And apparently they've now spread to the south of France, in cities with large Muslim populations like Toulouse.

In 2005, the `youths' rampaged throughout France,torching buildings, assaulting non-Muslims and police, hurling gasoline bombs and indulging in that unique French Islamist pastime known as the car-B-que. There was a brief reprise in 2006, right around Ramadan.

This time, there's been more of the same, only with an ominous twist...this time the `youths' are shooting at policemen and firemen as well as the other activities, and over 80 officers and firemen have been injured.

"From what our colleagues on the scene tell us, this is a situation that is a lot worse than what we saw in 2005," Patrice Ribeiro, a police officer and senior union official, told RTL radio Tuesday. He added, "A line was crossed last night, that is to say, they used weapons, they used weapons and fired on the police. This is a real guerrilla war."

The latest flareup was sparked (no pun intended) when two of the 'youths' were killed when they ran their moped into a police cruiser. Sounds like an ample excuse to me...

Another thing that sounds familiar is the litany of excuses for this kind of behavior in certain quarters..poverty, unemployment, lack of social progress,Islamophobia, blah blah blah bolshoi.

There are lots of poor people in the world, but comparatively few are making a regular habit of shooting at policemen, assaulting people who are not part of their particular ethnic persuasion and burning shops and public buildings.

This is a jihad against French society, and at least some Frenchmen realize it.

Prime Minister Francois Fillon, speaking to his police: "We will not give up. We will fight with all the strength that the Republic can give. You are the rampart of our Republic."

i should say something like, if this were not so tragic it would be funny.
......instead i'll just say the lawyered-up PC french had better look at pulling out of france. the islamic apologists won't stand for the french to defend themselves. best to look at relocating......to say mexico........why not......they're all in the US, no one is using the country, except maybe the drug cartels.

Actually Louie, Call me optomistic but I think the French are going to fight for their country.

As the first nation to face major jihad riots, I believe it awakened them to a degree of reality. Frankly, they're doing better wit their illegal immigration problem then we are...since Sarkozy came in, they're deporting them in vast amounts. If this kind of stuff continues, I wouldn't be at all surprised to see them start deporting legal residents back to the Maghreb.
