Mobs on new rampage in poor Paris suburbs
MONTFERMEIL, France: Rioters hurling rocks clashed with police in the troubled suburbs of northern Paris for a second night running, as authorities arrested a youth whose injury - along with the death of two friends - sparked last year's riots.
Fresh rioting had spread from nearby Montfermeil, where gangs attacked a police station, set ablaze cars and hurled stones at public buildings. Police said four officers were wounded, three of them trying to protect the Montfermeil police station from a hail of missiles.
Always leaving out the word Muslims................always.
I wonder if the French are aware just how quickly that country can/will spin out of control. Based on this new book, perhaps they do.
French plot to kidnap Abu Hamza and save the World Cup
Exasperated by Britain’s failure to silence the Islamic preacher of hate, France considered drastic measures to protect itself from a terror attack, suggests The Suicide Factory
“PERHAPS we could snatch him off the street, kidnap him, take him to Paris and deal with him properly there.” hat tip Matthew
"The problem hampering all the plans – assassinations or kidnappings – was the attitude of the British authorities. Over lunch, Jérôme made it clear to Hassaine that while his contacts in the undercover worlds of MI5 and MI6 might be prepared to turn a blind eye to such an operation, there was unlikely to be any such help from the regular police. “We might get some help from the British,” he said, “but we will not get any help from the British law.”
In short, if anything went wrong, all hell would break loose. If there were a gunshot, if Abu Hamza were injured, if a traffic policeman stopped the kidnap vehicle – if just one thing tripped up, there would be a huge diplomatic incident. What the French were proposing was to kidnap a British citizen in London and take him to face justice in France. The scandal could be bigger than the blowing up of the Greenpeace ship Rainbow Warrior in New Zealand in 1985. But such was the level of French frustration – from the Minister of the Interior downwards – with the British that all options were being countenanced. As far as the French were concerned, the British had entered into a Faustian pact with the extreme Islamist groups assembled in London. They were free to organise, propagandise and speak, as long as there was no threat and no trouble on British soil. Abu Hamza seemed to enjoy a friendly relationship with MI5 and Scotland Yard’s intelligence wing, the Special Branch. They called him regularly, invited him for meetings and were generally on cordial terms."
Apparently the British aren't listening to Melanie Phillips either.
