They set fire to Christmas trees. Is that an indication that Paris’ sizeable population of Muslims has joined in these riots? There is no indication of that in any of the coverage, but these riots do have similarities to what we have seen of Muslim behavior in Paris before: the torching of cars, the attacks on police, etc. In any case, even if Paris’ Muslims aren’t rioting now, they want a revolution, too, and will take full advantage of one if it begins.
