French PM: No riots, just 'social unrest' |
CNN and Amanpour speaks to DeVillepin (perfect couple eh?) 10,000 cars burned, 150 cops hurt, 100 public buildings damaged
"I am not sure we can call them riots" DeVillepin "Nobody died"
"You can not compare this kind of social unrest with riots. There were
no guns in the streets. This was a very special
movement" "There is no ethinic and no religious basis of this
movement". "These people want to be 100% French"

Keith B in Irvine writes me;
I am wondering if DeV recalls the restless French youths who doused the crippled women in flammable liquid before torching the bus she was on? Surely they are just looking for more social acceptance and better job opportunities - that's the first thing that crosses my mind when I want a better job - let me go burn a crippled person.
We should open immigration to all French Jews - as they are clearly in danger in France. Europe will not survive - they will be blamed. We need them here.
In the end America will live up to Churchill's prescription - after exhausting every alternative...
Good man Keith
Oriana Fallaci said it precisely last night here;
The Truth Inspires Fear".
"Europe overflows with the witch hunts.... hits any one going against Islam. It overflows the with New Inquisition. Trying to muzzle. Oh yes, like your Ward Churchills, your Noam Chomskys, your Louis Farrakhans and your Michael Moore's etc. TRAITORS! against which all antidotes seem to fail. Combined Neo nazi islamo fascism"
The Deaf remain the deaf, the blind remain the blind and both of them end up with ............brand of shame.
Fallaci:"The real enemy is Islam and the most catastrophic threat is immigration not terror. It is immigration. And they do not integrate in Europe. Maybe in the USA but not in Europe. Those riots in France are a result of that very thing". The Chinese, Vietnamese etc immigrants are not rioting and tearing down the very fabric of society.
The Courrier International is a weekly compilation of articles from the
international press brought into French and published by the Groupe Le Monde,
best known for its flagship daily. Here is the charming depiction of George W.
Bush that graces the cover of the current edition of the
Apart from the conspicuous fact that Bush's body is half eaten away, note especially the simian posture with the knuckles dragging on the ground. Among the Parisian intellectuals who constitute the principal market for the Courrier, as they do for Le Monde, such a representation of the American President is apparently supposed to be a mark of sophistication. The title to the left of the image reads "Bush laid bare" - a pronouncement that the cartoonist delicately interprets as having his flesh eaten away to the bone - and the subtitle reads: "Why Americans No Longer Have Confidence in Him". On the inside [link in French], this becomes "Why the Americans reject their President" and under the heading "The End of a Deception", the editors explain further: "numerous lies, political setbacks: the failings of the government is finally becoming apparent to the majority of Americans".
In 1973, the French novelist Jean Raspail artfully predicted in the form of fiction the very real Palestinian-style intifada that now rages on the west bank of Europe: France. Ten years after the book's publication, Raspail described the "vision" he had, portrayed in the book, which lasted for ten feverish months:
They were there! A million poor wretches, armed only with their weakness and their numbers, overwhelmed by misery, encumbered with starving brown and black children, ready to disembark on our soil, the vanguard of the multititudes pressing hard against every part of the tired and overfed West. I literally saw them, saw the major problem they presented, a problem absolutely insoluble by our present moral standards. To let them in would destroy us. To reject them would destroy them.
Consider the plot. An all-powerful, multi-culturalist intelligentsia, having taught France that it must atone for its racist crimes, swiftly joins compassionate French Christians in ecstatically welcoming the mass invasion that brutally destroys France. The solicitude of white Frenchmen—the priests, intellectuals, student activists, and prostitutes who wish to embrace and assist the implacably angry new arrivals—is repaid by death. And terror: The immigrants loot everything in sight. They murder for new apartments. France is run into the ground. Raw and relentless, the novel is as brilliant as Orwell’s 1984.
Raspail dares to ask the hard questions: Are we our brothers' keepers? Must the West share all its resources with a barbarous East—even if it means our own demise?
