    Val-de-Marne is a French department located in the Île-de-France region. The department is situated to the southeast of the city of Paris. The “young people” are all migrant youths.

    The issue of immigration to France is becoming more and more pressing as facts of this type continue to appear in the media: Must the representatives of the State, firemen, policemen, paramedics and ordinary citizens risk their lives in the “lost territories of the Republic”?

    On the night of Monday 21 to Tuesday 22 October, in Champigny-sur-Marne, fire soldiers and police officers were again assaulted in what could well have been a deliberate “trap”.

    Around 2:55, six firefighters were called to a street in the city of Val-de-Marne for a garbage can on fire when their truck was attacked by fifteen individuals who were “masked and hooded” with projectiles, according to a source from the police union mentioned by French daily Le Figaro.

    “It seemed like a trap. The individuals had a real will to light the fires”, specified the same source. And the police force had to be called in. The same attackers were ready and waiting with a lot of fire power – three grenades in all.

    The daily explained that “three incendiary devices, which could have been mortars used by the attackers, were seized” and added that three minors were arrested after the fact and placed in custody. Thankfully, no injuries were reported among law enforcement or firefighters.

    On Wednesday morning in Saint-Raphael, in the Var, national police on Twitter, a migrant has been threatening violence at the archaeological museum, according to a police source.

    He was carrying a sign with him on which inscriptions in Arabic evoked violent action. According to a police source, he said: “The museum will become a hell.” The translation of his threat was done by the housekeeper.

    According to France Bleu, the migrant, a former employee would not open the front door, and blocked it from the inside.

    It is not yet known whether the man, in his twenties, is armed or not, or when he entered the building. The officers of the Nice RAID, an elite tactical unit of the French National Police, have since been deployed.

    Last week, on Thursday, October 17, three passers-by were attacked with a knife in Nîmes by a foreigner insulting them as “dirty French”, according to regional daily Midi Libre. The daily published the statements issued by local police.

    On Tuesday, October 22, Midi Libre reported that the three people who were stabbed on the previous Thursday, were randomly approached while they were sitting on the terrace, and near a bar in the city.

    According to the first testimonies collected, a migrant couple had demanded cigarettes from passers-by in downtown Nîmes. The young woman accompanying the alleged aggressor “had been very insistent”, the newspaper noted, and “the tone was intense”. Altercations then occurred between the couple and passersby or customers of the bar.

    After being “convinced by his friend”, the suspect “armed with a knife” then returned, according to Midi Libre. The couple started insulting random pedestrians as “dirty whites” or “dirty French” police said. Two victims had to be treated by emergency workers and taken to hospital. A third person is still hospitalized.

    The prosecution opened a criminal investigation for attempted murder.

      The unfortunate thing about news such as this is that it is becoming commonplace. This is the “new normal”, not only in France but in much of western Europe. By contrast, the Visegrad countries and other former Iron Curtain nations have no such problems. Either they don’t pay lavish welfare to migrants, or they enforce the laws that migrants find a burden. And so they all go to Germany, Sweden, France, or elsewhere in the west.
