Riots continue for a fourth night in Paris, and French Interior Minister Nicolas Sarkozy tries dhimmitude to bring about the peace:
Sarkozy defended his tough crime policies on Monday after a fourth night of riots in a Paris suburb in which tear gas was fired into a mosque.
Sarkozy, addressing police officers, vowed to find how tear gas had been fired into the Muslim place of worship, an incident which had helped fuel the disturbances
"helped fuel"? This is the media making excuses for Muslim anti-social violence; not unlike how Isreal "helps fuel" the "cycle of violence" by having the nerve to fight back. I'm sure there was a good reason to fire the tear gas; better than bullets, no? But Sarkozy keeps begging:
French television said six police officers were hurt and 11 people arrested in violence partly fueled by the incident at the mosque. Sarkozy promised an inquiry.
"I am, of course, available to the imam of the Clichy mosque to let him have all the details in order to understand how and why a tear gas bomb was sent into this mosque," he told about 170 police officers at the prefecture
How about an inquiry onto how the police officers got injured?
Now it's "partly fueled"? That's a flat-out lie by CNN here. This is the fourth day of rioting, remember?
The violence began four days ago after the deaths of two teenagers, believed to be of African origin, who were electrocuted after clambering into a power sub-station while apparently fleeing police.
Sarkozy offered to meet the youths' parents but it was unclear if the meeting would take place, aides said.
Sarkozy is being a good multicultural dhimmi. Instead of meeting with the families of the dead teenagers, how about the families of the injured police officers? How about investigating why these boys were running from the police, instead of investigating why the officers had to defend themselves?
I've lived through this, during the dark days of this in New York, when multiculturalist Mayor David Dinkins paid for/attended the funeral of a drug dealer shot dead by police. It only begot the Crown Heights riots, and an overall dramatic increase in crime, that did not abate until Rudy "Cowboy" Guliani came to town. The race-baiters were shut out, the criminals pursued and arrested, the cops defended. Now New York is one of the safest cities in the world, for people of all races/colors...
Taking notes, Mr. Sarkozy? You should be...
