I'm Getting Fed-Up

More tolerant Islam from The Age.

A band of up to 30 youths forced passengers out of a bus in a southern Paris suburb in broad daylight, set it on fire and then stoned firefighters who came to the rescue, a police official said.

Police cordoned off the neighbourhood in Grigny, in the Essonne region, after the attack, which came five days before France marks the one-year anniversary of the start of three weeks of fiery riots by poor suburban youths. [...]

District police chief Jean-Francois Papineau called Sunday's bus attack "deliberate". He said the vehicle was forced to stop at a road block at about 2 pm. Two youths then entered the back of the bus to clear out passengers before dousing it with petrol and setting it ablaze.

The blaze gutted the bus and spread to four parked cars, Papineau told LCI television.

When firefighters arrived, the youths began stoning them, he said. No-one was injured. At least one person was arrested. The local prefecture said nearly 30 youths were involved in the incident.

So, who are these "youths"? Let's look at an AP story (via ABC News) on the "youth" problem in France.

On a routine call, three unwitting police officers fell into a trap. A car darted out to block their path, and dozens of hooded youths surged out of the darkness to attack them with stones, bats and tear gas before fleeing. One officer was hospitalized.

The recent ambush was emblematic of what some officers say has become a near-perpetual and increasingly violent conflict between police and gangs in tough, largely immigrant French neighborhoods that were the scene of a three-week paroxysm of rioting last year.

One small police union claims officers are facing a "permanent intifada." Police injuries have risen in the year since the wave of violence.

Permanent intifada? What do you think the origin is of immigrants whose violence would be referred to as an intifada, and can we be sure that these would be the same "youths" as in the bus attack? Let's read further.

On Sunday, a band of about 30 youths, some wearing masks, forced passengers out of a bus in a southern Paris suburb in broad daylight Sunday, set it on fire, then stoned firefighters who came to the rescue, police said. No one was injured. Two people were arrested, one of them a 13-year-old, according to LCI television.

Well, I guess they are referring to the same "youths" who attacked the bus. But how can we be sure that these immigrant "youths" are tied to Islam? Besides the fact that the PC MSM would identify non-Muslims specifically, there are specific references in the same article in regards to the problems that Europe is having with Islam.

In Britain, former Foreign Minister Jack Straw, now leader of the House of Commons, this month touched off a wide debate about the rights and obligations of Muslims by saying that he asks devout Muslim women to remove their veils when visiting his office. Prime Minister Tony Blair said Islam needs to modernize.

In France, a high school teacher received death threats, forcing him into hiding, after he wrote a newspaper editorial in September saying Muslim fundamentalists are trying to muzzle Europe's democratic liberties. [...]

Michel Thooris, head of the small Action Police union, claims that the new violence is taking on an Islamic fundamentalist tinge.

"Many youths, many arsonists, many vandals behind the violence do it to cries of 'Allah Akbar' (God is Great) when our police cars are stoned," he said in an interview. [...]

Distrust and tension thrive. Rumors have flown around some housing projects that police are hoping to use the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, which ends this week, to round up known troublemakers, on the basis that fasting all day will have made the youths weaker and easier to catch.

So, Muslim "youths" are ambushing police, attacking firefighters and paramedics, burning busses in broad daylight, and may be gearing up to kick-off a repeat of last year's riots. Sneeze within 20 yards of a Koran at Guantanamo, and the MSM has 24/7 coverage of that "atrocity." Muslim "youths" are being described by a French police union as being in a state of permanent intifada, and you have little (if any) coverage by the MSM.

I'm getting fed-up.
