SkyNews UK: “Burning car used in ram-raid attack on mayor’s home in ‘assassination attempt’.”
Rioters in France clashed with police and set homes and businesses on fire as the country endured a fifth night of terror. “Some 2,400 people have been arrested after five nights of violent protests throughout the country,” the Sky News UK reported Sunday. “People have taken to the streets over consecutive nights to protest, setting cars alight, throwing stones and fireworks, and ransacking shops.”
President Emmanuel Macron’s government deployed thousands more police and fire fighters after failing to put an end to the mass-violence which began following Thursday’s police shooting outside Paris that killed a 17-year-old boy of Algerian descent. The police say the shots were fired in self-defense. “The government deployed 45,000 police to city streets across the nation to head off a fifth night of violence,” the France-based broadcaster Euronews confirmed.

Paris: Mob sets suburban mayor’s house on fire, hurts wife and child
Rioters set fire to a car and drove it into the home of a Paris suburb mayor, injuring his wife and one of his children.
After attacking the town hall for several days, the mob turned to the residence of the mayor of Paris L’Hay-les-Roses, a Parisian suburb. The arsonists rammed a car filled with “flame accelerant” into the mayor’s house, the French media reports say.

Mayor Vincent Jeanbrun, who was away at the time of the incident, described that attack on his family as “an attempted murder of unspeakable cowardice.”
The French newspaper Le Monde reported:
Rioters in France rammed a car into the home of the mayor of a town south of Paris, injuring his wife and one of his children, the mayor said Sunday, July 1. Mayor Vincent Jeanbrun wrote on Twitter that protesters “rammed a car” into his home before “setting a fire” while his family slept.
“Last night a milestone was reached in horror and disgrace,” wrote the mayor of the town of L’Haÿ-les-Roses.
“My wife and one of my children were injured,” said Jeanbrun. “It was an attempted murder of unspeakable cowardice.”

Rioters desecrate memorial dedicated to Holocaust victims, resistance fighters
The rioters were seen defacing a monument dedicated to the victims of the Holocaust and WWII resistance fighters located in the western suburbs of Paris. The memorial was sprayed with vulgar anti-police graffiti. Men, apparently of migrant descent, were seen climbing the monument and trampling on a French flag.
It is truly horrifying to witness the Memorial to the Martyrs of the Deportation in Nanterre being vandalized.
This shameful act of disrespect for the memory of the victims of the Holocaust must be unequivocally condemned and those responsible held accountable. pic.twitter.com/B0HT3L9TiF

The Israeli TV channel i24News reported Saturday:
French rioters defaced a memorial to Holocaust victims and members of the French resistance during unrest in the wake of a fatal police shooting of a teenager in a Paris suburb.
The urban rioting that has rocked France for the last four nights saw several anti-police slogans scrawled on the Mémorial des Martyrs de la Déportation et de la Résistance (Memorial to the Martyrs of the Deportation and the Resistance) in Nanterre, the Paris suburb where the 17-year-old whose death sparked the riots lived and was killed. He is identified only as Nahel.
The memorial is devoted to the 200,000 deported to Nazi concentration and death camps from France during World War II, as well as those French people who fought against the Nazis.
Much of this violence is coming from migrant-dominated areas known for their rabid antisemitism, news reports suggest. “This looks like an Intifada in the heart of France,” French-Israeli lawmaker Meyer Habib was quoted saying on the Jerusalem Post on Saturday.
Habib added that “in these lost areas of the republic, for years there has been an undisturbed growth of hatred of France, white people and Jews.”
Allahu Akbar France!

The French will: "Convert to Islam, be Forced to pay Jizya poll tax, or be fought against for the sake of Allah"

The French TV channel Euronews reported the fifth night of rioting in cities across the country:
Some 2,800 people have been arrested since 17-year-old Nahel was shot by an officer on Tuesday. The incident has stirred up long-simmering tensions between police and young people who struggle with poverty, unemployment and racial discrimination. (…)
The government deployed 45,000 police to city streets across the nation to head off a fifth night of violence. Overnight, Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin tweeted the night had been calmer than previous ones, thanks to “the resolute action of security forces”. He put the night’s arrest toll at 427. (…)
Near the Arc de Triomphe in Paris, hundreds of police with batons and shields stood restlessly along the Champs-Elysées, several in front of the shuttered Cartier boutique. Posts on social media had called for protests on the grand boulevard but the police presence appeared to discourage any large gatherings.
830 years after 9 million books in Nalanda were burnt by Islamists, the largest public library in the city of Marseille in France has been set on fire.

Migrant rioting spills over to Switzerland
The riots spilled over to neighboring Switzerland, where a migrant mob attacked police and threw fire bombs at shops in the Swiss border city of Lausanne.
Germany’s state-owned DW TV reported:
Swiss police made the arrests after demonstrators caused damage to businesses.
Over 100 youths gathered in the city late on Saturday. Those detained included six minors of various nationalities aged between 15 and 17. The protests came in response to several social media appeals linked to the situation in France, police said.
Protesters pelted security personnel with paving stones and a Molotov cocktail, destroying several shop windows and a shop door.
