The guy robbed a casino, was fleeing from police, and fired upon his pursuers. He was killed. He was a Muslim. Now Muslims are rioting. A clearer indication of what they think of Western law enforcement and Western justice could not possibly be found. “France: Riots over killing of Muslim man,” fromÂ Ynet News, July 17 (thanks to Pamela Geller, who has video and backgroundÂ here):
UPDATE II: The police were fired on by automatic gunfire, a fact that strangely was only reported on by al jazeera.
The police chief says there were many armed “youths” involved:
Other reports are more honest in identifying the rioters. How much worse need this get before we call it a civil war, or at least an armed insurrection?
Shortly before midnight, a group of about 30 youths armed with baseball bats and iron bars attacked a tram in Boudouda’s La Villeneuve district and forced the passengers out. Police intervened and the youths began torching vehicles and attacking police who responded with tear gas.
Rioters burned cars, attacked a tramway and shot at police in the French city of Grenoble overnight in protest at the death of a local Muslim man, identified as 27-year- old Karim Boudouda, fleeing police after allegedly holding up the city’s casino.Interior Minister Brice Hortefeux was to travel to the southeastern city on Saturday to monitor events, his office said.
The violence began around midnight on Friday and lasted through the night in the poor suburban neighborhood of Villeneuve, home to the alleged robber.

Police said they intervened after local residents stopped a tramway by setting a fire on the rails and stoned it. At least 50 cars were burned and police said they were shot at once and returned fire. No casualties were reported.
The trouble followed a hold-up in a casino in nearby Uriage-les-Bains by two armed men in the early hours of Friday.
Police said the duo fled with 20,000-40,000 euros and were chased by police. Police said the suspects opened fire, wounding an officer, and one of the suspected robbers was killed in the ensuing shooting.
The second man fled into Villeneuve, where police helicopters flew overhead for much of the night in a fruitless attempt to locate him….
The only way to stop this is to disarm the police, of course. Its they who are terrorizing the poor marginalized Muslims from taking what’s rightfully theirs:
|Rioters exchanged gunfire with police in the French city of Grenoble early Saturday, setting fire to shops and cars after police shot dead a man accused of robbing a casino.|
During the riots,Â “No casualties were reported.”
Now, there’s the core of the problem, I’d say.

My name is Boutek Allouf from Algeria. I am one of this immigrantes in France that refuse to accept the style and corrupted way of living of Western World. I like my culture, my religion, my way of seeing the world. Islam is right. Europe is wrong. They same way you invaded Africa, South America, Asia, now is your turn to have us inside you. ThatÂ´s the price you have to pay. I hate your hipocrisy of saying that you live in a free society, but weÂ´ll use this as a tool to reach our means. You can not stop the flux of History. WeÂ´ll retake what is ours with the help of God.

UPDATE: Jew Lover in the comment section points out:
It looks likeÂ the FrenchÂ government may have to update their official websites to include more than the following:
French in France can’t go to 751 areas designated Muslim-Only areas
Note:Â The FrenchÂ are kind enough to list the areas, as well as provide detailed maps, of where non-muslims musn’t go in France.
