In Diverse France, New Years Means Hundreds of Burned Cars


It’s remarkable what passes for good news these days, particularly in nations enriched by diversity. A report from France notes a decrease in the annual New Years car burning ritual — only 940 vehicles torched. That’s 12 percent fewer arsonized autos than last year’s 1067. Yippee!

Of course, diverse (mostly Muslim) car-b-cues don’t occur only on New Years. That would be too limiting to Allah’s anarchists. When Muslims get a tiny bit miffed in France, they think arson and other violence. For example in 2010, after a Muslim casino robber was shot by police in their self-defense, three nights of violence followed including 50 to 60 cars burned in Grenoble. An arresting police officer reported, “The youths told me: You killed one of ours. At any rate, you are a dirty race, we will kill you too. We will shoot at everything that is European.”

Isn’t Muslim immigration great?

But a few dozen fried cars are nothing in the big picture of diverse arson. The blog Covenantzone examined records of France’s car burnings by using reports of the newspaper Le Figaro. Every year from 2005 to 2009 racked up more than 40,000 vehicles burned, with a total of over 200,000 automobiles destroyed in that time.

The AP report following didn’t directly identify the perps as Muslims, but did hint as much with its inclusion of the Allah Akbars shouted by the arsonists:

France reports 12% fall in number of cars torched on New Year’s Eve, Associated Foreign Press, January 1, 2015

Government says there were fewer arrests for disturbances due to more security following street attacks before Christmas

The French government has reported a 12% drop in the number of cars torched on New Year’s Eve – a ritual among revellers in the high-rise suburbs.

The number of vehicles set alight on the night of 31 December fell from 1,067 a year ago to 940, the interior ministry said on Thursday.

This year also saw fewer arrests for disturbances on New Year’s Eve, falling from 322 in 2013 to 308.

The ministry credited the “substantial, active and dissuasive mobilisation of the security forces” with keeping the seasonal crime wave in check.

The Socialist government increased security in the holiday period after three violent street attacks in the run-up to Christmas, in which one person was killed and more than 20 injured.

In two of the attacks, the assailants shouted the Islamic phrase “Allahu Akbar” (God is greatest).

More than 90,000 police, gendarmes, soldiers and emergency service workers were deployed to protect the public on 31 December.

The government has reported on the number of cars set alight each New Year’s Eve in recent years, although reporting the figures was abandoned in 2010-2011 over fears that it was sparking copycat fires.
