Remember the Muslim riots in France? They’re back. Attacks on police by Muslim gangs? They’re back, too. And they’re targeting police, injuring an average of 14 officers per day, EVERY day.
In the latest case, French police were set up with a fake report of a car theft. That reeled the officers into the trap, where the French Muslim youths attacked them.
And remember the wimpy, mince-every-word, PC press coverage of the Islamic violence? That’s back, too.
The Telegraph can’t–and won’t–bring itself to properly identify the perpetrators as Muslims, using the euphemism “North African.” That’s the new key code-word, in Telegraph correspondent Henry Samuel’s report:
The French government yesterday held crisis talks with community leaders in an effort to halt mounting violence in suburbs around Paris, amid news that gangs of youths, mainly of North African descent [DS: MUSLIM], were intensifying attacks on police.
Dominique de Villepin, the prime minister, ordered his interior and justice ministers to “toughen up” sentences for those found guilty of assaulting officers, following a meeting with community leaders.
His announcement followed a series of violent incidents over the past weeks, culminating in the ambush of three police officers on Friday by youths in Epinay-sur-Seine, north of Paris.
“These guys came to kill. They wore balaclavas, and had baseball bats and iron bars,” said Joaquin Masanet, the general secretary of the powerful UNSA police union.
The three officers from the anti-crime brigade, BAC, entered the Orgemont housing estate after an anonymous caller reported a violent car theft.
Once inside, their exit was barred and they were set upon by around 50 [DS: MUSLIM] youths, who pelted the men with stones. Iron bars smashed their windscreen. They tried to reverse, but a second vehicle boxed them in.
The criminals fled only after the officers fired live ammunition into the air and police reinforcements arrived.
One of the officers, Christophe Esteve, 30, had two teeth knocked out and needed 30 stitches in his jaw. He was discharged from hospital yesterday.
First, it was Ilan Halimi and other French Jews. Now, it’s the cops. Who’s next? Or, rather, who isn’t?!
Coming to America soon? When critical mass of the “Religion of Peace” is reached, don’t be shocked.
Thanks to reader Phil who alerted us to the article. He says of this “sensitive reporting”:
Why don’t they state who the gangs really are…Islamic…not North African.
Good question. See this definition for the answer.
