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"
Rioters ignored the extraordinary security measures, which began Wednesday, as
they looted and burned two superstores, set fire to a newspaper office and
paralyzed France’s second largest city’s subway system with a gasoline bomb.
France declared a state of emergency Tuesday to quell the country’s worst unrest
since the student uprisings of 1968 that toppled a government, and the prime
minister said the nation faced a "moment of truth" over its failure to integrate
Arab and African immigrants and their children.

State-run Iranian dailies on
Tuesday accused the French government of oppressing its people, as Paris and
other cities went through another night of fiery protests. The semi-official
daily Jomhouri Islami said the French government had given the orders for
the French army to "suppress" protestors. On Sunday, Iranian Foreign Ministry
spokesman Hamid-Reza Asefi blamed the French police for "resorting to violence." [oh yes, let’s empower the Iranians]
French police secure a check point position in Clichy sous Bois [uh….did I hear checkpoint?]
What amazes me is that the left succeeded at the polls here while failing the Europeans so miserably. Those measures in California were just plain common sense. Especially the measure to amend "tenure". The gods must be crazy……………MPs rejected the plans by a bigger than expected margin of 322 votes to 291, before later backing a 28 day limit.
Tony Blair has suffered his first defeat after MPs rejected his plan to allow police to detain terror suspects without charge for up to 90 days.
The defeat will be seen as a blow to the authority of Mr Blair, who had said MPs had a "duty" to support the police.

Hamidreza Assefi, spokesman for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the regime reacting to Monday’s European Union statement that cited among other matters, Ahmadinejad’s recent irresponsible comments about Israel, claimed: "This statement is inappropriate for the shift that the world and the Islamic Republic are going through at the moment; we are amazed at the depth of the European Unions’ ignorance toward the flow of the world.
The Europeans need to first and foremost start by criticizing themselves; in order to eliminate human rights violations and racism toward minorities and Moslems in particular, they are obligated to take radical steps and that needs to be reflected in their statements." READ
