Paris Resembles War Zone as France Endures Sixth Night of Migrant-Driven Rioting 

Paris Resembles War Zone as France Endures Sixth Night of Migrant-Driven Rioting 

Le Figaro newspaper: “Police and gendarmes are paying a heavy price, with 700 injured” overnight.

Paris and other French cities resemble war zones, with burnt homes and streets littered with charred cars, as the nation reels under the sixth night of violence triggered by last week’s police shooting that killed a 17-year-old boy of Algerian descent.

“In just six nights, over 5000 vehicles were set on fire, whereas around 3300 persons were arrested, according to a report from the Ministry of Interior on Monday,” French newspaper Le Parisien reported. Rioters damaged more than 1,000 buildings, the daily added.

According to the French newspaper Le Figaro, “police and gendarmes are paying a heavy price, with 700 injured in action” on Sunday night alone. Noting the carnage on Sunday night, the French daily reported that “at least 577 vehicles were set on fire in a single night, 871 fires were reported on the public highway, 74 buildings set ablaze.”

Devastation worse than 2005 riots

The French newspaper Le Monde summed up the devastation left behind after days of rioting largely led by immigrant youth.

The current round of rioting caused more destruction than the 2005 riots, which lasted for weeks. “According to several sources, five nights and as many days of violence have exceeded the severity of the riots in the fall of 2005, which lasted three weeks. Back then,” the French daily reported Monday. “These incidents occurred at night and in broad daylight, despite a considerable police presence, with more than 40,000 officers mobilized, including the use of armored gendarmerie vehicles,” Le Monde added.

The Times of London also compared the current violence with the riots of “2005, when Arab and black youths rampaged for three weeks in the banlieues (suburbs).”

The fires set by rioters took their first victim. “A firefighter has died outside of Paris trying to douse burning vehicles,” the state-owned France24 TV channel reported Monday morning. “The 24-year-old died fighting a fire in an underground car park in the suburb of Seine-Saint-Denis north of the capital, said Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin.”

Mainstream media laments ‘police brutality’ and ‘racism’

The establishment media in the U.S. and Europe tried to pin the entire blame on French police for causing the riots, first by shooting an innocent teenager and then using “heavy-handed tactics” against protesters.

“The shooting of the teenager, identified only as Nahel, bears some similarity to traffic stop deaths involving people of color in the United States,” USA Today concluded.

If you are only following the mainstream media, you won’t know that the 17-year-old victim of a tragic police shooting reportedly had prior convictions.

The New York Times described the migrant-driven mass-rioting as a “revolt over police violence and racism.” Not to be outdone, the Washington Post declared that “France is rioting over police brutality.”

The establishment media fails to explain why rioters — they fondly describe as “French youth” — are seen shouting “Allahu Akbar” and burning French flags.

The big media seems to have great sympathy for these marauding gangs of migrant men ‘trapped’ in a lifestyle financed by a generous welfare system. “Many of the very young rioters may have a sense of besieged Muslim identity,” Politico commented. “Young men of African and North African origin are much more likely to be stopped by French police than young white men,” the U.S. news outlet complained.

Le Pen and the real French backlash

Nearly a week of arson and rampage appears to be generating a backlash among ordinary French. Over a million euros were crowdfunded for the legal defense of the police officer charged with the wrongful shooting of the French-Algerian teenager.

The newspaper Le Monde reported:

A collection for a French police officer who sparked nationwide riots by shooting a teenager dead during a traffic stop last week reached more than €1 million by Monday afternoon.

More than 50,000 people had made donations to the online fund, set up on the website by far-right media commentator Jean Messiha, who is close to anti-Islam politician Eric Zemmour. The collection easily outstrips one created for the family of the dead 17-year-old, Nahel M, which on Monday stood at €189,000. (…)

Several politicians from Emmanuel Macron’s ruling centrist party Renaissance and from the left condemned the collection, launched by far-right commentator Jean Messiha, who is close to anti-Islam politician Eric Zemmour. (…)

The police officer, named in French media as Florian M, has been detained and charged with voluntary manslaughter. In a video of the shooting, he can be seen with a colleague stopping a Mercedes which Nahel was driving without a licence, in the western Paris suburb of Nanterre on Tuesday morning.

The mainstream media fear President Macron losing ground to his right-wing rival, Marine le Pen, ahead of the 2023 election.

“Far-right leader Marine le Pen — whose party has been gaining in opinion polls — has seized on the opportunity to portray Macron as weak on law and order,” the UK Daily Financial Times noted.

““Allah Akbar! We are Muslims, if the police kill us we have the right to kill. It is written in the Koran!”” France’s mode of suicide is now apparent. They have danced with Islam as a moth with a candle. Just waiting for Notre Dame to be burned… again..,… just wait.

    Do the Parisians still believe “diversity is their greatest strength”?

    This is why Muslims shouldn’t be allowed into the USA.

      Yes, clearly we should start rounding them up. Maybe put them into camps? Strip them of their citizenship? Do share your plan. I’m sure you’ll get lots of upvotes here.

        We are, frankly, lucky to have our absolute calamity of a POTUS–worst most incompetent cabinet in American history–opening the borders to Central Americans who are mostly Catholic. Also the Muslims that come here re typically prosperous, business-minded, & want to be here. That’s good.

        You’ve already LOST the argument. Godwin’s Law.
        Nonetheless answer me this:

        There’s a religion. It has no “render unto Caesar”/separation of church & state. It is in fact an expansionist religion that claims God’s full dominion on earth. This is to be pursued by it’s adherents. Religiously. It’s adherents have 3-4.5+ kids / family in countries where the natives have a 1.4ish birthrate. NO country that ever reached 20% this religion has ever been ruled by anyone non-“this religion” ever again.

        Are you like SUPERDUPER COMFORTABLE with your country hitting say 5% that religion?

        Answer that. Think about that.

        When you are done you can go to the library & learn ANY OTHER HISTORICAL REFERENCE TO TYRANNY. That will make you less of an ignorant creep. Wouldn’t that be nice?

          GWB in reply to Content. | July 5, 2023 at 9:29 am

          I disagree on the “typically prosperous, business-minded” part. We have let in waaaay too many “refugees” in the last 20 years from those cultures and nations. It has not served us well.

        Azathoth in reply to Thad Jarvis. | July 5, 2023 at 9:34 am

        See this–

        “Yes, clearly we should start rounding them up. Maybe put them into camps? Strip them of their citizenship? Do share your plan. I’m sure you’ll get lots of upvotes here.”

        This is what they count on.

        Piling unearned guilt upon heads that do not bear it. Insinuating the commission of a crime leftists and muslims deny routinely while at the same time being the ones who gleefully commit it.

        So we sit, hands stilled, while THEY attack and kill us.

        WE did not slaughter the jews, leftists and muslims did, and DO, to this day..

        We liberarated them. Saved them.

        Yet now all a leftist or a muslim has to do is suggest that RETALIATING against their murders is equivalent to the holocaust they committed to get us to sit down?

        Kill the terrorists. All of them.

        Not for what they ARE, for what they DO.

        The crowd rioting, burning a city is a murderous mob. Deadly force is allowed when defending against such.

        In a nation of laws.

        But there are no longer any of those in existence.

    ConradCA in reply to alaskabob. | July 4, 2023 at 11:10 am

    Their prophet told his followers that their duty was to spread Islam throughout the world by the sword and that is what they did for 500 years. Christians and Jews could submit and live as inferiors under Muslim rule. Everyone else had to embrace Islam or be killed. No they have the gall to claim Islam is the religion of peace.!

      Thad Jarvis in reply to ConradCA. | July 4, 2023 at 11:58 am

      Had no idea my Muslim neighbors were honing their scimitars as we speak. Thanks for letting me know. I’ll get the freight trains started.

      CommoChief in reply to ConradCA. | July 4, 2023 at 12:45 pm

      Not exactly a peaceful beginning or middle for Islam, nor in many instances at present.

      In fairness we could say the same for Rome. The Roman Citizen had privilege and prestige compared to the non Citizens. Those who once conquered failed to remain submissive the ‘glory of Rome’ were dealt with very harshly indeed. We could say the same for the Norman Conquest of Britain. The same for our Nation’s subjugation of the North American Tribes during our westward expansion. None of those conquests were passive, they were brutal and harsh.

      Then there’s the history of Christianity from Constantine forward which wasn’t quite as humble and meek as we may have been taught to be in Sunday School. Plenty of atrocities over several centuries were carried out in the name of Christianity and/or with blessings of the Christian Church; Roman Catholic, Orthodox and Protestant alike. Let’s keep the admonitions about throwing stones and removing motes in mind.

      Bottom line is it pays to be a winner and given the choice you always want to be the hammer not the nail. History teaches those lessens very well and it is universally applicable across cultures or belief system.

        Content in reply to CommoChief. | July 4, 2023 at 5:37 pm

        “None of those (Amerind) conquests were passive, they were brutal and harsh.”

        Brutal like Comanches? Hell no, we were bush league. Did we enslave them? Nope. Know what you call a mestizo trader who mostly trades in slaves the Comanches took on their wars of genocide?


        Just FFFF right off with that ahistorical Pollyanna blame whitey BS you wasted $200,000 being indoctrinated with.

        Pretty much every First Nations tribe was a bunch of slave-taking genocide-lite savages. Few exceptions like the Navajos & Utes, but not many. Pretty much EVERYONE EVERYWHERE was a POS slaver brute. For all of history. Everywhere. Geebus.

        I am SO sick of your whiny little ilk. ZERO historical knowledge. You’re the kind of fool who thinks the Southern Plantation owner owes “reparations” to someone from Ghana. Full clown world Ministry of Clownspeak Clownthink.

        As if ROME is salient to this discussion. Geebus.

          CommoChief in reply to Content. | July 4, 2023 at 7:44 pm

          I notice you didn’t seek to refute the points I made. Instead you just sought to contextualize them re N American tribes in the SW. Fine as far as those points go, no argument from me about the context of the US westward expansion which is no true good guys.

          The tribes fought like demons to keep the US Settlers out and the US in turn fought like demons to win. That’s how every conquest works throughout history. Not a controversial view. Then you move to ad hominem attacks for some reason. Not sure how my pointing out that every conquest is damn hard on those conquered is ‘Pollyanna ish’.

          You seem to reject references to the Roman Empire in a discussion about the conduct of conquests. Perhaps you need more explanation as to the relevance. I was responding to ConradCA who made the (correct) observation about Islam and conquest particularly so in the first 500 years. Very brutal and undertaken in large measure using religion as a justification.

          The inference ConradCA seemed, IMO, to be making is that Islam isn’t not only not a ‘religion of Peace’ but that this was somehow unique to Islam. Obviously that’s not true. Every religion has been used as justification for all sorts of bad acts including conquests. I don’t see how pointing out that Christianity, in nearly all it’s flavors, has also been misused as justification for conquest is so off putting to you.

          As for your personal attacks and misplaced assumptions about my worldview; you couldn’t be further from the target. It was shaped in public schools and I certainly didn’t pay anything close to $200K for university. My over 26 of military service including multiple combat and operational tours on multiple continents left me with a great appreciation for the fragility of humans. In particular our flawed political leadership and the buffoons who refuse to apply the knowledge of history to themselves. They seem to believe themselves immune from the folly of the past. Instead they cloak themselves in alternating layers of false patriotism and hubris attacking everyone who refuse their siren call of ‘this time is different’, ‘we’re better/more virtuous than our opponents’ or worse yet go straight to ‘Gott Mit Uns’ as justification.

    Maybe time for the Foreign Legion to deal with the “French youth” like Algeria circa 1960

The French may now be too civilized to survive.

ThePrimordialOrderedPair | July 3, 2023 at 2:35 pm

When it comes down to it, the French are ruthless and have no care or affection for anyone or any thing. If these muslims keep pushing it they might be treated to real-life re-enactments of how the French dealt with this sort of problem in Algeria.

That said, Europe is getting exactly what they’ve been begging for for a few decades, now. Maybe this will spread and muslims will burn down Brussels and The Hague. ANd they can raze Davos, for good measure. At least, that would be some constructive destruction.

    Europe got genetically high-graded by the two world wars.

      CommoChief in reply to Dathurtz. | July 3, 2023 at 4:05 pm

      That’s a disturbing but probably very accurate statement. It might be the most succinct description of post WWII Europe I have ever read.

      The Gentle Grizzly in reply to Dathurtz. | July 3, 2023 at 10:59 pm

      Those wars didn’t do us much good either, nor our losses bein the world’s cops.

    If they do and while they are at it, they had better do the same to the French Left. Their problems come from both..

    Ohhhhh, I’m pretty should any religion or truck of peace reach any border of Switzerland there will be a remarkable change in resolution tactics. If ya know what I mean.

    “There’s migrant policy for thee.

    Then there is migrant policy for me.”

    –Your Good Friend & Incipient Uberfuher Klaus

    I’m wondering how many of the French know where their ancestors buried their guns in 1941. This is looking like an open revolt by an ethnic minority. A well-functioning government would be shooting revolutionaries until it stopped, but if the government failed, in a well-functioning nation the people would rise up and kill the revolutionaries.

The Gentle Grizzly | July 3, 2023 at 2:35 pm

It’s France. Have they blamed “that $h1tty little country”, Israel, yet?

    To Europe, everything has been the fault of us Joooz for 2,000 years. Talk about systemic and institutional bigotry! Europeans imbibe Jew-hatred from their mother’s milk.

      IMO, that’s one reason European nations are taking the insane position that inviting Muslim immigrants from Africa and the Middle East will benefit their cultures. To any objective observer, they’re inviting their own cultural destruction.

      But Europe and their Islamic immigrants are united in their overall hatred of Israel and Jews. I guess that’s important enough to overlook little things like survival, huh?

    France was a friend of Israel long before the USA. The six day war was fought with French arms because the US was scared to upset the arabs.

      Stuytown in reply to gnome. | July 4, 2023 at 8:58 am

      And then France completely betrayed Israel before the Yom Kippur war in 1973, when it cut off all arms sales. It even refused to deliver combat ships that Israel had already paid for.

Aloha Snackbar! The Religion of Peace, at it again…

    “The establishment media in the U.S. and Europe tried to pin the entire blame on French police for causing the riots, first by shooting an innocent teenager and then using “heavy-handed tactics” against protesters.”

    Not a peep about what is really going on. All of the West needs to deal harshly with Muslims when they get out of line. That is the only thing they understand. Anyone who understands their history should also understand that will have to brutally cull the herd. French citizens should be armed, this is worse than the Nazi’s whom they had to fight.

Perhaps Macron should ask Germany to invade, as it did in the previous century. That would definitely help restore order in France. Unfortunately, the French are too busy being woke to protect the non-rioters.

    JohnSmith100 in reply to Q. | July 3, 2023 at 5:02 pm

    I should have read one more comment before posting.. If France does not regain control and purge all belligerents, we will have to remove France’s Nukes or destroy them.

LibraryGryffon | July 3, 2023 at 3:30 pm

We haven’t had a good car-b-que season for a few years.

I’m pleasantly surprised it’s been quiet this long.

France is too busy being diverse to do anything about the rioting. Trying to stop riots is racist. When this is over, the people of France will love migrants even more.

“Young men of African and North African origin are much more likely to be stopped by French police than young white men,” the U.S. news outlet [Politico] complained.

And there’s a perfectly reasonable, completely non-racist explanation for that: African and North African immigrants grew up with a very different set of laws and cultural norms than what’s expected in France. They’re going about their normal routines, which could be minor infractions under French law, or just look very suspicious to French police — either way, worth an investigative stop. (And that’s assuming American jurisprudence; European jurisprudence doesn’t recognize as many rights, so “Terry stops” and “reasonable, articulable suspicion” aren’t necessarily requirements.)

“Allah Akbar! We are Muslims, if the police kill us we have the right to kill. It is written in the Koran!”

I’m not a Koran expert, so I have to ask: Is that so even if the initial death had cause? As in, supposing the 17-year-old were trying to kill the police officer and the police officer shot him in moral and lawful self-defense, does the Koran still say Muslims have a “right to kill” in retribution?

As a follow-up: How far does this “right to kill” extend? Just the police officer who caused the initial death, or all non-Muslims? What about non-Muslims who try to defend him vs. ones who don’t? (Honestly, at this point none of these answers would surprise me either way.)

In any case, that’s some straight-up “Religion of Peace, Love, and Bohemian Star-(and-Crescent-Moon)-Child Flower Hippies” stuff, right there.

    CommoChief in reply to Archer. | July 3, 2023 at 5:51 pm

    IMO the appeal to religious authority is a.consequence of the French govt perpetual indulgence of childlike tantrums. These guys on the street setting fires and throwing rocks ain’t exactly world class scholars so don’t read uniformity of belief across all Muslims into their statements. That isn’t to minimize the fact these particular numb skulls believe this BS..

    The more important contributing factor is, IMO, the woeful lack of swift, severe and consistent consequences for those who indulge themselves in riots, arson, looting and general mayhem. If a child is rude and undisciplined I look to the Parents. In this case the French establishment class has refused to require these immigrants to assimilate and become productive, law abiding individual members of the broader French society. Instead the French govt allowed them, for generations, to create and maintain a separate and distinct cultural identity based upon principles incompatible with Western culture.

    randian in reply to Archer. | July 3, 2023 at 7:44 pm

    Initial cause doesn’t matter. Islam doesn’t recognize the right to self-defense against a Muslim by a non-Muslim. No matter how a Muslim abuses a non-Muslim that non-Muslim must not respond as that would be a crime in itself, and they cannot file a criminal or civil complaint because a non-Muslim cannot testify against a Muslim in an Islamic court.

    This is why in Islamic countries you see things like Muslims kidnapping, raping, and forcibly converting infidel girls or altering property records to steal real estate from non-Muslims. The non-Muslim’s testimony and records are irrelevant since they cannot be introduced as evidence in a criminal complaint against a Muslim.

    Remember that, to a Muslim, non-Muslim law is illegitimate and non-Muslim police have no right to enforce it.

      markm in reply to randian. | July 5, 2023 at 1:45 pm

      If Muslims in France believe that, doesn’t that mean they are always in a state of rebellion against both the French government and the French people, and that the French would be justified in killing them until there is no more rebellion?

    retiredcantbefired in reply to Archer. | July 4, 2023 at 10:52 am

    Parts of the Qur’an (the “verses of the sword”) lay an obligation on all able-bodied Muslim men to wage war on unbelievers. Until the unbelievers have been killed, enslaved, or (if eligible) reduced to dhimmi status. By implication, any non-Islamic regime is illegitimate.

    Called it. Video released shows the young man driving a car dangerously, refusing to stop, leading police on a speedy chase (including driving on sidewalks), finally stopping due to traffic, refusing orders from armed police to turn off the engine or exit the vehicle, and gunning it into an officer, prompting a single, fatal gunshot. The officer might not even have intended to shoot him; pulling the trigger could plausibly have been an involuntary reflex to being hit by the car.

    In America, that would likely be considered reckless driving, reckless endangerment, evading arrest, and aggravated assault of a police officer (and that’s just a start).

    IOW, it was not a situation of racist white police targeting poor, helpless minority youth.

    But as others have pointed out, the Koran doesn’t see it that way, and thus that young thug becomes a martyr and the rioters feel justified in burning it all down and killing every non-Muslim in the country.

JohnSmith100 | July 3, 2023 at 5:30 pm

From what I have seen Muslims tend to be irrational, they lack critical thinking skills. while those who came from the Middle east have intelligence to American Blacks & generally have a better work ethics, they are more irrational, mentally unstable and represent a greater threat to civilization than any other group. I have seen studies that inbreeding causes lower intelligence and emotional instability. That is common, in that young Muslim women are often sexually abused by family members., fathers, uncles, etc.

Sadly, the vile Dumb-o-crats set the stage for this type of agitation when their goose-stepping, brownshirted terrorist thugs in the “Anti-fa” and “Black Lives Matter” cadres were allowed to commit looting, riots, destruction, assaults, murders and desecrate synagogues across the U.S. during year 2020, with total impunity and without fear of arrest or prosecution.

Conservative Beaner | July 3, 2023 at 5:56 pm

I wonder if this crap would be happening if the French were allowed to have firearms.

Bonne Chance Frenchy.

    Minor quibble with your question. Phrased correctly, “I wonder what would happen if French citizens were permitted to have firearms *legally*” France has a lot of guns. They’re just not in the hands of people who are being attacked. You don’t see many scenes of screaming club-waving thugs chasing citizens in Texas, for example.

      GWB in reply to georgfelis. | July 5, 2023 at 9:40 am

      There was an attempt made in Texas several years back. And they got themselves DRT because of the good guys with guns.

    JohnSmith100 in reply to Conservative Beaner. | July 3, 2023 at 7:33 pm

    As I recall, the French did a very good job of manufacturing a simple reliable gun during WW2.

      kclark22 in reply to JohnSmith100. | July 4, 2023 at 4:57 pm

      Raise your hand if you like the French, both hands if you are French. They manufacture weapons then sell them to Iran and North African nations. The irony is lost on the French.

“The New York Times described the migrant-driven mass-rioting as a “revolt over police violence and racism.” Not to be outdone, the Washington Post declared that “France is rioting over police brutality.””

These vile Dhimmi-crats can’t or won’t explain what desecrating synagogues and a Holocaust memorial have to do with protesting police brutality, naturally.

Subotai Bahadur | July 3, 2023 at 6:25 pm

JohnSmith100 touched on my concerns. For about a week we have had open insurgent warfare committed by the Muslim community in France, using deadly force and improvised military weapons. We have not seen the French government counter in kind. They have arrested some, but can you really see the French trying them for their crimes and punishing them when every trial will be a provocation for more warfare. We have not seen any French government officials “laying down the law” and demanding a return to order. In fact, they have tried to ban social media from covering the battles claiming that it is social media that is provoking it.

This is not a society or culture that can find a new Charles Martel, or even a new DeGaulle. If they do not take drastic and condign action appropriate to the insurrection, they ARE going to fall. Which leaves us with the problem that JohnSmith100 mentioned: French nuclear weapons.

The French Force de frappe/dissuasion has evolved. They have dispensed with their silo-based missile force long ago. Their nuclear weapons are carried on either aircraft or nuclear ballistic missile submarines. I hope you will bear with me, as I quote myself on another site this morning:

“The only serious concern that we DO have is the ultimate fate of the French nuclear deterrent, the Force de Frappe/Dissuasion. They have dismantled their land based missile branch of what was a triad; but the country still has about 290 warheads carried by aircraft and submarine based missiles [insert-plus spares and logistics train]. The matter of who controls them is a vital national interest for this country.

Don’t believe that? What if any of the hordes of jihadist Muslims get control, either under a national flag or as a terrorist group? If you were Taiwan facing a possible Chinese invasion and having to depend on the Leftist US government for backup . . . . how much would you pay for say one or more of the 4 French LE TRIOMPHANT class nuclear ballistic missile submarines and crew? Each sub carries 16 M-51 ICBM’s and each of them carries multiple independently targetable nuclear warheads. How about India, Pakistan, or North Korea? It would be one bugger of an auction session.”

Subotai Bahadur

This isn’t really a riot, it’s an intifada intended to wrest control from the French authorities and deliver France to Islam, something they have been trying for a thousand years. It may not work now, but these will only increase in frequency, scale, and intensity until France cedes control or they expel every last Muslim in France. Charles Martel approves the latter.

JohnSmith100 | July 3, 2023 at 7:54 pm

Maybe a better approach is to offer French nuclear crews and their families a place in America if the deliver them to us. If we cannot acquire them peaceably, then we will have no choice except taking or destroying them with force.

At this point, Macron needs to declare martial law, cause police and soldiers to carry live ammunition, authorize them to shoot rioters, looters, and arsonists on sight, and completely immunize police/soldiers from any form of civil liability for doing so. And give any Muslim who complains a one way ride out of the country. That’s the only thing that will stop this long term.

Not that I expect Macron to do anything like that, of course.

Coming up on St Bartholomew’s Day.

The French should take a page out of their history and clean house again.

Otherwise, riots like this will just become increasingly frequent and deadly until they no longer have a country.

Civilization in France and the EU has been running on the remnants of its Christian heritage. The violence and looting and destruction are not being done by Christians. The failure of ostrich France and other countries to face reality enables, prolongs and increases the decay and death and destruction. You can have two kinds of peace, but they are incompatible with one another. On the one hand you can have Christian tolerance and freedom and on the other theocratic muslim totalitarianism. Either will produce peace. The choice is there, but fantasizing a false view of “migrants” and silencing honest discussion of reality leads only to civil war.

    GWB in reply to Chieftain. | July 5, 2023 at 9:45 am

    I will say that I had seen indications that some portion of the rioters were AntiFa sorts.
    Progressives are certainly in league with the more fundamentalist muslims when it comes to tearing down Western Civilization.

Brexit was a very good first step for the UK. France 2023 ought to be reflected upon by the Remainers and by other Brits as well.
