FRENCH POLICE - WHO WATCHED AS MUSLIMS RIOTED DURING A NATIONWIDE, THREE WEEK LONG INTIFADA, (DURING WHICH MILLIONS AND MILLIONS OF EUROS-WORTH OF DAMAGE WAS DONE TO BUILDINGS, CHURCHES, AND THOUSANDS OF CARS WERE TORCHED) - USED FORCE TO QUELL STUDENT REVOLT. BBC:
The French education minister has defended the use of force to evacuate almost 200 protesting students from the Sorbonne university in Paris. Gilles de Robien accused some of the students of "odious acts", including defacing books and equipment. Riot police using tear gas and batons confronted students angry at a new labour law, that would allow employers to hire and fire young workers.
I guess the French are obviously more afraid of their banlieue Muslims than of their pseudo-intellectual Parisian students. This strikes me as similar to the cowardice they displayed during the Cartoon Intifada - typified by the fact that almost daily, the French newspapers are "brave" enough to run horrifying ant-Bush cartoons, but none - execept for one - would even reprint the M'hummed cartoons.
No matter which way you slice it, it all smacks of cowardice, appeasement and dhimmitude.
