The French Intifada

Sphere: Related Content

2,500 police in France have been injured in renewed violence by Islamic "youths". Think about that number, 2,500!

"We are in a state of civil war, orchestrated by radical Islamists," said Michel Thoomis, secretary general of the Action Police trade union. "This is not a question of urban violence any more. It is an intifada, with stones and firebombs."

The French Interior Ministry has acknowledged the Muslim uprising. The ministry said more than 2,500 police officers have been injured in 2006. This amounts to at least 14 officers each day.

This an organized effort, not a loose affiliation of rioters:

The battles have been under-reported but alarming to French authorities. Muslim street commanders, who run lucrative drug networks, have organized youngsters in housing projects to ambush police and confront security forces. The response time allows hundreds of Muslims to storm police cars and patrols within minutes.

"You no longer see two or three youths confronting police," Thoomis said. "You see whole tower blocks emptying into the streets to set their comrades free when they are arrested."

Al-Qaeda is believed to be assisting these people and if that's the case, they are in open warfare with the French and the French citizens don't seem to have realized it as yet:

France's huge Muslim minority community has come under the influence of agents often influenced and financed by Al Qaida. These agents have recruited Muslim youngsters for urban warfare in which police and government representatives are injured daily.

Not surprisingly, Muslim neighborhoods are becoming autonomous zones, with police and government workers too scared to enter. The police union is demanding the Interior Ministry supply officers with armored cars.

European law enforcement sources say France could be a model for other countries. The most worried are Britain and the Netherlands.

The Brits and Dutch have already seen the violence that radical Islam can visit on a nation and will have to crack down hard. The French should send troops into quell the violence if the police are having major difficulties.

When will the French acknowledge that even if they didn't join in the battle in Iraq, they are western infidels and thus, targets.

Here are pictures from last year when the jihadi's rioted to give you an idea of how violent they are and it only seems to be getting worse.
