Reuters spins French muslim riots as "class warfare"

Betraying an astonishingly socialist orientation, Reuters reports on the most recent night of riots in French muslim communities without ever once using the word "muslim", instead explaining the violence as entirely a matter of the oppressed poor of Paris lashing out over social injustice:

Rioters shot at police and fire fighter crews in the worst night of a week of violence in poor suburbs that ring Paris, as France's conservative government struggled to quell the unrest.

Youths who rampaged on Wednesday night left a trail of burned cars, buses and shops in nine suburbs north and east of Paris, home to North African and black African minorities frustrated at their failure to get jobs or recognition in French society.

An oblique reference to violence, crime and rioting elsewhere in Europe also makes no mention of the fact that the rioters are muslims, and that the riots in Denmark are clearly attributed, by the rioters, to offenses against "the prophet", such as pictures published in a newspaper.

The pictures published were simply pictures of Mohammad, not in any way demeaning or offensive. But Islamic law forbids depicting him visually, and muslims throughout Europe have embarked on a course of intimidating Europeans into observing muslim norms, getting Pooh's pal Piglet and piggy banks banned in Britain by making workplace complaints.

The Danish newspaper, which has since hired security guards and received numerous threats, solicited and ran the pictures after having an author complain that artists were afraid to illustrate his work for fear of muslim retribution.

Anyone who doesn't believe that Islam has embarked upon a new age of conquest, aimed at subjugating the world to an Islamic way of life, has his head in the sand. Or perhaps somewhere else where the sun doesn't shine.

Over at CUANAS, they've taken the position that the European Muslim riots are being organized and orchestrated by a central entity. Visit that site for an intriguing series of posts on the topic.
