I lived in France for 8 years and I have never understood why the “youths” deal with "social problems" only through riots. Until one day, I was admitted in a meeting of a so- called "cultural association" subsidized by the local council. A Muslim "brother" talked for about an hour on the difference between "us" and "them", to conclude that whatever we do to "them" is of god's will, a kind of Jihad. Well, the French authorities should start inquiring on the kind of “culture” they are subsidizing.
I think this bears on the Islamist connection. It may not be direct, the brothers may not be out there organizing the riots, but the attitude they are imparting likely plays a role. Another quote:
I teach in those suburbs and I can tell everyone it's a "hell". These groups often identify themselves to Palestinians and they are under no control. They are gangsters but at the same time they claim to be "good muslims". They fear no one for they are ruling the area where they live. People fear them and the police never come in those places
Here is the blowback from the constant cheerleading that the French press lends the Palestinians. I thought such would happen. The BBC and the rest of the European press have done the same. They sh*t in the well and now have to drink the water. Bottoms up.
Update: "Africans" continue to lay waste to France. In a sign of the times, a white banner at a silent march reads "No to violence." Why white, one wonders? Where are the puppets? Sensible Frenchmen ask where is the army. So do I.
