    Rioters from migrant housing projects, are protesting over deaths of two teenagers aged 17 and 19 who were killed during a high speed chase.

    The two were crushed between a bus and the wall of a bridge when the bus steered right to make way for the police cars.

    Protest marches quickly descended into violence with hooded youths taking to the streets, torching vehicles and attacking police not only with molotov cocktails, but also with fireworks and gasoline bombs. Police responded by firing tear gas.

    On the facade of an establishment in the migrant-populated Mistral district, in the south of Grenoble, inscriptions could be seen: “The police kill the youth of tomorrow” , “You will pay”, ” No mercy for the pigs , “500 euros for each policeman killed”.

    Major cities in France have repeatedly been hit by violence in so called “social problem areas,” where large numbers of Muslim migrants are housed. The first of these recurring major riots broke out in Vaulx-en-Velin, a Lyons suburb, in 1990.

    Since then, many similar riots have taken place in the Paris suburbs. In addition, riots have even taken place at the seaside or mountain resort sites where suburbanite migrant youths are sometimes placed for government-sponsored vacations.

    Jean-Claude Chesnais, one of France’s leading demographers at the National Institute for the Study of Demographics (Ined), is very blunt about the propects of integration.

    Migration trends are to intensify over the coming thirty years… . All developed countries will be affected, including East Asia and the former communist countries. There will be an overall mingling of cultures and civilisations that may lead, as far as France is concerned, to the emergence of a predominantly African population and to rapid Islamization.”

    The birthrate of immigrant Muslims remains three to four times higher than that of non-Muslim French, which is estimated at 1,3 percent, and there is no specific reason yet to believe that the Muslim rate will eventually parallel the non-Muslim one.

    Because the birthrate of Muslims are three to four times higher than that of non-Muslims, the proportion of children, teenagers, and young adults in urban France is not 5-11 percent but a very impressive 33 percent or more.

    According to the Interior Ministry, two thirds of Muslims in France live in major urban areas.

    Lucienne Bui-Trong, an officer in charge of the Towns and Suburbs Department at the Renseignements generaux (general intelligence) of the French police, said in 1997 already that no less than one thousand Muslim neighbourhoods were under monitoring throughout France.

    The National Police therefore had to deploy more personnel to these areas to prevent public disorder as violence and crime are rampant in such areas. In fact, 700 Muslim neighborhoods were listed as “violent” while 400 four hundred were listed as “very violent” at the time.

    Organised crime and firearms were present, suggesting that residents had a systematic strategy to keep the police out. The Ile-de-France had 226 violent neighborhoods, Provence-Cote d’Azur had 89, Rhone-Alpes 62, and Rhone-Pas-de-Calais 61.

    More worrying, argued Michel Gurfinkiel, former editor in chief of Valeurs Actuelles, France’s leading conservative weekly newsmagazine, is that expensive “urban policies” – a euphemism for ghetto rehabilitation – had not worked.

    “The government has little to show for its expenditures: crime and unrest are both sharply on the rise at Vaulx-en-Velin and everywhere else. The basic assumption underlying this welfare policy – that unrest is the result of poverty and a shabby urban environment – would seem to be proven wrong,” Gurfinkiel said.

    Moreover, one thousand mosques were said to be operating in France, almost all of them built or organised during the past thirty years at the turn of the century.

      French help in destabilizing Syria causing mass refugees and migration did not help, and was predictable.

        First major riot started in 1990, if you actually read the article. Syria wasn’t an issue then, correct? So try another excuse.

            I did read it. And after 2013-2014 you are correct. But in 1990 when (according to the article) the migrant violence started, the Syrian debacle was a quarter-century in the future and played no role in what happened. Maybe you should stop drinking before you post?

      Can only hope that migrant violence in France and elsewhere will continue and will escalate. At some point, whatever the politicians want, the military will say “enough” and erase these migrant neighborhoods – or enough of them to make it possible to evacuate the remainder, say into the Alps in winter? For France, I imagine the Foreign Legion would do the job nicely….

      Instead of firing tear gas the police should be firing live ammunition.
