Muslim Barbarity Alert

The mob violence that started in areas of Paris where Muslim emigres from North Africa are concentrated (usually in cinder-block state housing) has moved to the Parisian suburbs and continues after 6+ days.

But the BBC refuses to name the thugs as Muslims.

The Times of London report is little better, criticizing Nicholas Sarkozy for wanting to clamp down on the rioters; but at least the Times identifies the criminal youth gangs as Muslim.

Dr. Theodore Dalrymple, contributor to City Journal, saw this coming years ago thanks to the concentration of North and West African immigrants in France's socialist-housing jungles and the weak response of the French justice system:

The laxisme of the French criminal justice system is now notorious. Judges often make remarks indicating their sympathy for the criminals they are trying (based upon the usual generalizations about how society, not the criminal, is to blame); and the day before I witnessed the [previously described robbery] scene on the Boulevard Saint-Germain, 8,000 police had marched to protest the release from prison on bail of an infamous career armed robber and suspected murderer before his trial for yet another armed robbery, in the course of which he shot someone in the head. Out on bail before this trial, he then burgled a house. Surprised by the police, he and his accomplices shot two of them dead and seriously wounded a third. He was also under strong suspicion of having committed a quadruple murder a few days previously, in which a couple who owned a restaurant, and two of their employees, were shot dead in front of the owners’ nine-year-old daughter.
