Muslim Riots Continue

What a surprise! Lastnight saw the 18th consecutive night of muslim riots in Paris. 284 cars were set ablaze and 115 people were arrested. Since October 27th, 2,652 total arrests have been made. As usual, the Brussels Journal has a good roundup:

Hurrah! Last night was even “quieter” than the night before. According to French police statistics in the 18th consecutive night of rioting, there were violent incidents in 120 municipalities. In the whole of France 284 cars were set alight and 115 people were arrested, which brings the total number of arrests since the beginning of the riots on October 27 to 2,652. Five policemen were injured in Grenoble when a gas canister exploded in a dustbin that had been set alight. Paris was said to be “calm,” though other sources reported that a gas station had been set ablaze. The police announced that 68 cars were torched in Paris, compared to 76 the previous night. Michel Gaudin, the head of French police, said earlier that 86 vehicles burned in a single night is “about normal” in Paris. That, apparently, was more or less the pre-riot level in the capital of multicultural France.

Lyons was calm too: last night 15 cars were torched in France’s second largest city, one school was arsoned and another school was rammed with a car. Later today the French government is going to prolong the state of emergency until 21 February. The European Union will donate France 50 million euros to help recover from the damage, as if rioting is a kind of natural catastrophe, the French equivalent of Hurricane Katrina.


There’s really no major news outlets covering this anymore. I don’t think I saw anything on FoxNews about the paris riots over the weekend. CNN had a few minutes of video on their Headline News channel, but that was it. Maybe if they just ignore it the threat will just go away. Bird’s Eye View discusses a more general concept: Society before State. Good read.

The Dread Pundit Bluto has figured out the cause of the rioting, with the help of some lowly journalists . It’s caused by infants and their unwillingness to speak or learn any language at all. When will the wee ones learn?

The Imploding French Model

Curt at Flopping Aces linked to an interesting opinion piece discussing the Paris riots and the economic policies that caused them.

Through a combination of socialism at home and appeasement abroad, the French believed they had found a viable alternative to, in former Prime Minister Lionel Jospin’s phrase, “jungle capitalism,” as practiced by you know who. Jacques Chirac was more direct, condemning “ultra liberal Anglo-Saxon” economic policies, while also famously boasting that France would anchor a European pole in a “multipolar” world, with American influence vastly reduced. With 300 French cities in flames, French pretensions lie singed and shriveled.


The article places most of the blame soley on economic factors and Frances willingness to accept immigrants. Economic factors do play a factor, no doubt. I don’t think that’s the root of the problem though, it all goes back to radical Islam. Curt gets it:

While I agree that the French economic policies are a factor in the Paris riots, how do you explain the rioting in Germany and Belgium? You let Muslims take over neighborhoods in your country, almost giving them autonomy, then as soon as they get strong enough they will let you know that Islam has no borders and they will take the land by force. Radical Islam has no other goal then the destruction of the west, get it through your thick skulls liberals.

Bloggers Encourage Paris Riots

Some bloggers in France have been detained for encouraging people to participate in the Paris riots. Doesn’t seem like a very smart thing to do given the situation. French bloggers are apparently split on this, some encouraging the riots, others attempting to bring peace and quiet. H/T Boing Boing.

Two bloggers have been detained by authorities in France on suspicion of encouraging people to take part in the Paris riots.

A 16-year-old French teenager and an 18-year-old of Ghanaian nationality are being questioned by Paris prosecutors, according to reports.

One of the blogs was called “sarkodead”, a reference to the interior minister and presidential contender, Nicholas Sarkozy, who referred to the rioters in disparaging terms and has been singled out for criticism by many French bloggers.


Boing Boing also points to an article written by Thomas Crampton (who’s been covering the riots) in which he discusses the role blogs and SMS (text messages) played in the riots in France.

This could make for some really interesting news when more information starts coming out. There’s a lot of talk about this going on at French blogs, but I don’t know French.

Hotel Suicide Bombings in Jordan – UPDATED

Three hotels in Amman, Jordan were the target of suicide bombers today. 23 57 people are known to have died while 120 300 people were injured. The hotels were popular among Israeli and Western toursits.

AMMAN (Reuters) – At least 23 people were killed and scores wounded on Wednesday when three suspected suicide bombers blew themselves up in three hotels in Amman, a security source said.

Reuters correspondents said there had been explosions at the Radisson SAS and Grand Hyatt hotels in Amman and the official Petra news agency said there had been a third blast at the Days Inn hotel in the city.

“At least 23 people were killed in the three blasts and many wounded,” a security source told Reuters.

Jordan’s interior minister, Awni Yarfas, who was at the Radisson hotel, told reporters: “There were explosions in the Hyatt and the Radisson … Yes, they were bombs.”

Police threw up roadblocks around the hotels, causing traffic chaos in the city, and Reuters television footage showed a fleet of ambulances and fire vehicles outside the buildings.

The blasts appeared to happen at much the same time.


Supposedly, a wedding was taking place in a banquet hall inside one of the hotels. There was some speculation over wether or not the bombs were pre-planted or if this was the result of suicide bombers. It seems to be generally accepted now that it was suicide bombers.

Could this somehow be related to or in response to the Paris riots? Could be, but I doubt it. Proabably just more islamic crazies blowing stuff up for the sake of blowing stuff up. And to murder as many zionist pigs as possible, which is usually their goal. Note I said “usually”, not “always”. And I said “islamic crazies” rather than “all muslims”. You liberal european bloggers can stop calling me islamaphobic now.

UPDATE 1: Wizbang has an update stating that FoxNews is reporting the death toll has risen to 57 with 115 people injured. Apparently the bombs at the Radisson and the Hyatt were suicide bombers. The Days Inn explosion was caused by a car bomb.

UPDATE 2: FoxNews is now reporting the number of injuries to be closer to 300 than 115.

Muslim “Rage Virus” Spreading Beyond France

Doesn’t the rioting and violence in France somewhat remind you of the movie 28 Days Later? Only the rage “virus” spreading across France and Europe is a psychological “virus” instead of the physical virus found in that movie. It’s a state of mind virus. It would be easy to confuse some of the images coming out of France with scenes in 28 Days Later.

We’re upon the 11th night of rioting in France now. So far an estimated 1300 vehicles have been torched and 350 some people have been arrested. Meanwhile President Jacques Chirac makes worthless threats of jail time for those found to be inciting violence or fear. I don’t think jail time is much of a concern for the rioters. It looks like the outraged Muslims are attempting to take over the country. Should that happen Jacques, you won’t have any prisons to put them in, nevermind losing control of your country to a Muslim population. France has to face reality here and stop fucking around and just end the damn thing. They are at war whether their administration will admit to it or not. How they should go about doing that is beyond me though. Peace offerings would just go un-noticed and using lethal force agains the rioters would just cause a much larger, global Muslim backlash.

Across France, 1,300 vehicles went up in flames overnight. For the first time, more than 30 were destroyed inside the city walls of Paris. Previously quiet towns such as Dreux, to the west, and the city of Nantes were also affected.

Police said 349 people had been arrested, including six youths caught stockpiling 90 Molotov cocktails in a disused police building south of Paris.

Despite the worst destruction since the riots started, a police spokesman called for a sense of proportion: “It’s 211 districts out of 36,000, so France is not burning.”

Authorities say drug traffickers and Islamist militants are helping organize the unrest, via the Internet and mobile phones, among the North and sub-Saharan African immigrant communities who make up a significant part of many suburban housing estates.

The violence has tarnished France’s image abroad, forcing Villepin to cancel a trip to Canada, while Russia and the United States have warned their citizens to avoid troubled suburbs.


Is anybody even aware of what exactly the rioters want? Do they feel neglected or is this seriously all because of the two electrocuted teens who obviously did something to cause the police to chase them? Suppose the two electrocuted teens really are the cause for the ongoing violence. If that is the case, it would seem the Muslim population there expects to be treated differently than everyone else by law enforcement. That could also be the reasons for them feeling neglected and wanting recognition. It’s not our fault they insist on being regarded as an almost totally different species. OK, now all you anti-america whackos can start sending me nasty e-mails and leaving totally non-relavent comments. I know the point I was trying to get across in this paragraph will be totally lost on you.

And now for some links to worthwhile blog posts regarding the subject. Curt at Flopping Aces is concerned about the rest of Europe, noting that Muslims in Denmark are starting to show some signs of aggression towards the government of the land in which they are living. Let the Islamic Intifada in Denmark begin! Curt also has a nice roundup of the events occuring up until November 4th, along with some pictures.

The Brussels Journal can offer more insight than I could as to why Muslims are rioting and what to do in order to diffuse the situation. I’ve really enjoyed reading their site over the past few days. They seem to have a very unique perspective.

The Chip Mathis Experience relates the riots and general civil unrest in France to a similar situation we could soon be in here in the United States. Chip is on to something there. I’ve witnessed first hand, multiple times, how Mexicans can act when in large groups. I can’t imagine the level of violence we would see in the U.S. if we were to start sending mass quantities of illegals back to Mexico.

Ace of Spades HQ speaks of the moltov cocktail factory and proceeds to totally kill the European theory suggesting 9/11 was caused by the United States’ refusal to sign the Kyoto Accords. Doesn’t make a whole lot of sense at this point in history, now does it Europe?

I’ll continue to update this post until sometime tomorrow (Monday), adding links and commentary where needed. This is linked at Outside The Beltway and The Political Teen.

UPDATE 11/6 @ 6:25 pm CST: Reuters is reporting that Muslim rioters are now firing shots at police officers. H/T Jihad Watch.

Rioters fired shots at police in an 11th night of riots in France on Sunday, injuring 10 policemen, two of them seriously, police said.

Some 200 youths were lobbing stones and other objects at police in Grigny, south of Paris, a police spokesman said, adding that some of the rioters had fired at officers with shotguns, hitting 10 policemen.

Two officers were being treated in hospital, one with lead shot wounds to the throat, the other with wounds to a leg.

Asked whether the rioters could have killed someone, the spokesman said: “Probably not at this distance, but they could have caused bad injuries, or turn one of the officers blind.”

UPDATE 11/6 @ 8:50 pm CST: Jayson at PoliPundit is waiting for Michael Moore’s new documentary, he’s got some questions for the MSM and the French government too:

When will Michael Moore produce a movie about those impoverished Muslims living in France, along with a documentary about their penchant for shooting at French authorities and burning stuff to the ground?

Will Moore refer to the Islamo-French-o-bots as “freedom fighters” or as “rebels?”

Hopefully the use of guns won’t continue or grow worse in France. Previously, most of the violence was targetted towards non-living objects, this could mark an extremely deadly turning point in the mayhem. Here a little more info about shots fired at police officers. From Reuters via Yahoo News:

GRIGNY, France (Reuters) – Rioters fired shots at police and set hundreds of cars ablaze in an 11th night of violence in France on Monday, hours after
President Jacques Chirac vowed to restore order.

Ten policemen were injured, two of them seriously, when a group of youths fired at police with shotguns in Grigny, south of Paris, police said. One officer was treated with lead shot wounds to the throat, another suffered injuries to one leg.

“They really shot at officers. This is real, serious violence. It’s not like the previous nights. I am very concerned because this is mounting,” one police officer said.

Another spokesman said the shots could probably not have been fatal due to the distance from which they were fired, but were clearly capable of causing serious injury.

Police said at least 300 cars had been set ablaze in several towns across France and 37 people had been arrested.

The fresh violence came just hours after Chirac said the law would have the last word over the riots, making his first public comments since violence started in the poor suburbs on October 27.
