20 Cars Burned By Muslims Over Veil Enforcement

From those defenders of the faith at the Associated Press:

20 cars torched near Paris after veil tensions

By NICOLAS GARRIGA | July 21, 2013

TRAPPES, France (AP) — Riot police patrolled Sunday in suburbs west of Paris that have seen cars torched and a police station attacked amid tensions linked to authorities’ handling of France’s ban on Muslim face veils.

The police couldn’t keep their police station from being "sacked"?

Some 20 cars were set ablaze overnight and four people detained in a second night of violence, officials said Sunday. Interior Minister Manuel Valls said the overnight incidents targeted the town of Elancourt.

Only four people?

The second night of unrest seemed less intense and appeared to involve fewer people than the night before, when some 250 people clashed with police in the nearby town of Trappes…

The violence began Friday after a group of residents gathered at the police station to protest the arrest of a man whose wife was ticketed Thursday for wearing a face veil. The regional prosecutor said the husband tried to strangle the officer who was doing the ticketing.

Strangling of policemen is not allowed? What about decapitating them with machetes?

France has barred face veils since 2011… The ban affects only a very small minority of French Muslims, but some say it feeds discrimination against moderate Muslims, too.

It was probably the moderate Muslims who set fire to the 20 cars.

On the first night of unrest in Trappes, a 14-year-old boy and three police officers were injured and several people detained…

Benoit Hamon, the government’s minister for social and economic solidarity, sought to point out efforts to crack down on perpetrators of anti-Muslim acts as well as those who attack police stations.

Two people were sentenced to two months in prison this month after threatening a Muslim woman in a headscarf with a knife in Trappes, he said.

"We will be severe against those who attack public goods but also against those who do racist and Islamophobic acts," said Hamon, who is also a member of parliament from the region that includes Trappes.

Thank Allah there is some balance. The racist Islamophobia over there really seems to be getting out of hand. Islam is a religion of peace.
