Happy New Year 2011!

Happy New Year to all our Winds of Jihad readers!

First the good news from France:

Jihad is just vandalism, no need to report it. Because reporting  it may just cause …. more vandalism?

Carbeques in France:

“I have decided to put an end to the competition, the sweepstakes, and will longer publish the number of burnt vehicles,” Interior Minister Brice Hortefeux said this week, adding that publishing statistics encouraged vandalism.

That’s it. Lets not talk about it. Silence will make the jihad go away…..(Al Reuters-full article below the fold)

Frances Fox Piven Rings in The New Year By Calling for Violent Revolution Government

“An effective movement…will have to look something like the strikes and riots that have spread across Greece…”

She’s considered by many as the grandmother of using the American welfare state to implement revolution. Make people dependent on the government, overload the government rolls, and once government services become unsustainable, the people will rise up, overthrow the oppressive capitalist system, and finally create income equality. Collapse the system and create a new one. That‘s the simplified version of Frances Fox Piven’s philosophy originally put forth in the pages of The Nation in the 60s.

Now, as the new year ball drops, Piven is at it again, ringing in 2011 with renewed calls for revolution.

France, Carbeques:

PARIS (Reuters) – France will deploy extra police and keep vandalism statistics under wraps on New Year’s Eve to fight what authorities say has become an annual “sweepstakes” of disaffected youths competing to see who can burn the most cars.

Youths in depressed suburbs of French cities have been torching hundreds of vehicles on New Year’s Eve and Bastille Day since the early 1990s. Police say the annual rite has turned competitive, with youths tracking the news in the first days of the new year to see which neighbourhood did the most damage.

“I have decided to put an end to the competition, the sweepstakes, and will longer publish the number of burnt vehicles,” Interior Minister Brice Hortefeux said this week, adding that publishing statistics encouraged vandalism.

Opposition politicians described the move as an attempt by President Nicolas Sarkozy’s conservative government to cover up the violence.

“The government tends to eliminate unfavourable indicators. The interior minister has been publishing trumped-up statistics for years, and now Hortefeux is going even further,” Socialist deputy Delphine Batho, a security specialist, told Reuters.

Last year, the Interior Ministry said 1,137 cars had been torched, a 30 percent rise on 2008. French media reported at the time that several thousand cars had been burnt.

Nearly 54,000 police officers will be deployed across France, a rise of some 6,000 compared to normal New Year’s Eve staffing levels, and additional command posts set up in several cities, Hortefeux said on Friday.

The image of burning cars remains particularly evocative in France in the wake of urban riots in December 2005. Sarkozy came to power in 2007 promising to quell violence, but crime and vandalism have inched up in the past year.

Arson in France’s “sensitive urban areas” rose by 17.2 percent between 2008 and 2009, according to a 2010 study by the Observatory of Sensitive Urban Zones. In 2009 a total of 12,874 cars were burnt, it reported.

    Interior Minister Brice Hortefeux explained on New Year’s Eve, that because the car burning has become a competition between certain groups – of youths – he will not give out the numbers of cars burnt during New Year’s Eve/Morning. He will, however, release an overview midmonth January.
