BBC now casting Muslim riots as "oppressed poor" lashing out

Apparently, the MSM ignored the Muslim riots in Europe until they could figure out how to spin it so it fits the agenda. Last post, we told you Reuters was spinning the Islamist uprising as "class warfare". Now the BBC follows suit with this report, which describes the escalating, and spreading, violence in terms of "poor immigrant" neighborhoods, never mentioning the word "muslim" until the closing paragraphs:

In scenes of escalating unrest overnight on Wednesday, shots were fired at police and firefighters, while gangs besieged a police station, set fire to a car showroom and threw petrol bombs. At least 177 cars were also set alight.

Interior Minister Nicolas Sarkozy, who earlier met the dead teenagers' families, said the violence was "not spontaneous" but rather "well organised".

He said the government would not allow "troublemakers, a bunch of hoodlums, think they can do whatever they want".

On Thursday afternoon, Mr de Villepin held talks with Mr Sarkozy, other ministers, as well as MPs and mayors from affected towns.

The areas affected are poor, largely immigrant communities with high levels of unemployment.
Minister for Social Cohesion Jean-Louis Borloo said the government had to react "firmly", but added that France must also acknowledge its failure to deal with anger simmering in poor suburbs for decades.

Muslim leaders have urged politicians to show respect for immigrant communities.

Dalil Boubakeur, the head of the French Council for the Muslim Religion, said people in the suburbs "must be given the conditions to live with dignity as human beings", not in "disgraceful squats".

There you have it. Muslims who have refused to assimilate and remained cloistered in their own self-contained communities, hamstrung by the backward cultural blindness of their Islamic societies, figures France needs to "show them respect" and "give them" the "conditions to live with dignity."

This is what happens when a socialist state with a stagnant economy creates the impression that it will "provide" for everyone, and then allows mass immigration of people who are not the least bit interested in assimilation. What you get is a large population of unemployed and largely unemployable foreigners living within your borders demanding that you support them in their separate society.

My hunch is that this is organized violence intented to intimidate France and the French. We'll see what comes of it.

I wonder what will happen when the UN wants us to provide troops to protect the Muslim population in a European nation that wakes up and realizes it's being overrun by foreigners who have every intention of making that country their own, and decides to do something about it.
