Are We Witnessing the Start of a European Intifada?
And, to be sure, there already has been intense communal violence elsewhere in Europe, if nothing quite like the French disturbances, most notably the fighting between Pakistani and Bangladeshi immigrants and the police in several towns in northern England a few summers ago
The article goes on to reassure Europeans that their leadership is “relatively” sure that this violence wont spread, and that they are working on “safeguards” and ways to “integrate” the youth more to avoid it.
But if they are talking about it, someone realizes this may not just be some poor folks mad about living conditions.
Pat Buchanan sees something shaping up:
The Romans conquered the barbarians—and the barbarians conquered Rome. So it goes with empires. And comes now the penultimate chapter in the history of the empires of the West. This is the larger meaning of the ritual murder of Theo Van Gogh in Holland, the subway bombings in London, the train bombings in Madrid, the Paris riots spreading across France. The perpetrators of these crimes in the capitals of Europe are the children of immigrants who were once the colonial subjects of the European empires.
And from the mouths of the rioters (Breitbart):
"We hate the police," cried one teenager. "It's the start of war," yelled another. "Put this in your notebook ... ," said a third, rattling off a string of obscenities about France's tough-talking interior minister, Nicolas Sarkozy. All French-born children of Arab and black African immigrants, this group of a dozen or so teens at Les Tilleuls housing project north of Paris complained of being marginalized by French society.
Something is afoot in Europe, and it isn’t peace and unity.
