When I originally heard that there was rioting in France, I thought maybe they ran out of nationalized theater tickets to distribute, or Jerry Lewis’ “The Disorderly Orderly” was released on special edition DVD, but there’s much more to the story.
A large percentage of the rioters are Muslims living in slum areas of France. The “religion of peace” strikes again, and this time, the uprising is against their staunchest allies, if you don’t count Prince Charles and Jimmy Carter.
How did this all begin?
The unrest erupted Oct. 27 among youths angered over the deaths of Bouna Traore and Zyed Benna, two Muslim teenagers who were electrocuted when they hid in a power substation because they believed police were chasing them. They had earlier evaded police who had set up an identity checkpoint in the Seine-Saint-Denis region, dominated by low-income housing projects.
The U.S. Embassy has issued a travel warning to Americans thinking about going to France, warning them to stay away from Paris suburbs where they will be treated rudely by rioters, and advising them to stay in the city, where they will be treated rudely by hotel desk clerks and waiters.
It is often heard that the United States, due to its “war on terror”, is on a “crusade against Islam.” America is the real enemy of Islam. France, attempting to avoid unpleasantness at any cost, has spent a great deal of time appeasing, refusing to become involved in Bush and Blair’s “war on terror” and the removal of the lucrative Saddam Hussein from power. France tiptoes around Islamic terrorism like Tina Turner trying to sneak past a snoozing Ike.
If all the nations of the world were schoolchildren, France would be the one that gives its lunch money to the bullies in return for not getting beat up. That never works for long, though, because soon, either the money runs out, or its not enough.
Now, there are riots perpetuated by many in France’s Muslim population, and radical Islam would like nothing more than to see Paris under a mushroom cloud. So much for a policy of appeasement.
Amidst all the confusion, this could be the perfect time for Lance Armstrong to go get his pee back.
