As the Mudville Gazette points out, the MSM has been silent about the riots in Denmark. To be honest, I forgot which country it was, even after reading this jihad watch link. (Belgium, Holland, the Netherlands...they all seem to fade into "Small European States") I had to dig to 10/03 to find the link, so it may have quelled down in Denmark (look for updates). Still, it is quite relevant to the French riot story, which is continuing. Latest from the AP on France (kick, kick!):

Images of teenagers from immigrant families pelting riot police with stones and gasoline bombs reminiscent of Palestinian youths attacking Israeli patrols are resonating throughout the Arab world.
The Egyptian daily Al-Massaie referred to the riots as "the intefadeh of the poor." Arabic satellite networks have given lead coverage to the mayhem, with regular live reports. Newspapers throughout the region have closely followed the story, calling it a "nightmare" and a "war of the suburbs."
Arson attacks, rioting and other unrest have spread from the suburbs to hundreds of cities and towns though acts of violence were down somewhat Monday night from the previous evening.
Officials were forced to shut down the southern city of Lyon's subway system after a gasoline bomb exploded in a station, a regional government spokesman said, adding no one was hurt.
French historians say the rioting is more widespread and destructive in material terms than the May riots of 1968.

Paul Belien says "Riots have engulfed the entire country and, like the French revolution of 1789, it is contagious: The rebellion is spreading to Muslim areas in neighbouring countries."

American Dinosaur weighs in with a very informative post full of links, with one that compares the French uprising to a potential "Aztlan" uprising, starting in L.A. This one's worth an excerpt, just to see their screwy point of view:

Los Angeles, Alta California, November 7, 2005 - (ACN) French cities are still burning, after 11 nights of rioting, primarily because of the attitude of Interior Minister Nicolas Sarkozy toward its immigrant and Muslim populations. Sarkozy, with ambitions of becoming France's next president and acting perfectly like the Marquis Evrémonde in the novel "Tale of Two Cities", threw gasoline into the fire when he referred to Muslim and immigrant disaffected youths protesting racism, unemployment and police harassment as "scum". Sarkozy is an Islamophobe and the son of a Hungarian immigrant who had airs of being an aristocrat and of a Jewsih mother. This sort of attitude from French "aristocrats" is precisely what brought about the French Revolution and the storming of the Bastille in 1789.
Today, here in Los Angeles, we are already seeing ominous signs of an impending social explosion that will make the French rebellion by Muslim and immigrant youths seem "tame" by comparison. All the ingredients are present including a hostile and racist police as in France.

Hat-tip to the American Dinosaur, and read his post, because this is just one excerpt from the many links he uses to support a cogent theory about anti-western ideology.

Finally, some guy with too much time on his hands (or who just writes alot) named Don Surber writes something that is just right for this whole situation: "Oh and while we are at it, toss Chirac in prison. He is the ringleader of a $64 billion oil scam in Iraq. A little justice and accountability by the West would go a long way toward filling the gap." I think the "gap" he's referring to is what he calls Euro-sion, the title of his post. He doesn't exactly describe what he means by this, but it becomes self-evident after reading the links there, which happen to include several of the links in this post. (Check out "WE DON'T BELIEVE IN PUNISHMENT" for my take on this concept.) Hat-tip to you, Mr. Surber, as well. Chirac is a worthy culprit, as well as target of investigation. Let's hope his "immunity" expires soon.

Don Surber and American Dinosaur are both sites I frequent. They have lots of good stuff. I'm glad Chirac's poulets have come home to roost or maybe roast is the better word. It couldn't happen to a nicer guy.
