Intifada Against French Police
According to the French interior ministry 2500 police officers have been wounded in fights with Muslims in the "estates" a term they use for public housing projects. There has been a crack down on illegal activity since the riots last year. The Muslim youth have been banding together in large groups to rescue their comrades being arrested. While the official word is the enforcement effort is aimed at organized crime, the police union claims it is an Intafada against the police instigated by Islamists. The reaction of the mayors of the various cities with the worst problems are reacting in traditional French fashion.
Mayors in the worst affected suburbs, which saw weeks of riots and car-burning a year ago, have expressed fears of a vicious circle, as attacks by locals lead the police to harden their tactics, further increasing resentment.
Maybe they should offer some land for peace. It worked real well for Israel.
