- As is the case with other European countries where fascist
and Islamist fundamentalist forces have joined forces, there is increasing
evidence that the riots that have swept France for a week and a half have
been far more than spontaneous reactions to the electrocution at a Paris
electrical sub-station of two Muslim teens who were escaping police. With
an ailing President Jacques Chirac stepping down in 2007, the battle lines
have been drawn between two conservative presidential candidates -- Interior
Minister Nicolas Sarzoky (nicknamed "Sarko"), a confirmed neo-con
in the tradition of fellow travelers in Italy, Britain, Denmark, the Netherlands,
Israel, and Spain, and Prime Minister Dominique de Villepin. Sarkozy has
inflamed Muslims and other minorities in France by describing ghetto youths
in broad pejorative terms such as "riff-raff" and "scum."
While Sarkozy has inflamed the situation with his anti-immigrant rhetoric,
de Villepin has sought to mollify the situation by not wanting to overreact
and create more turmoil.
- However, with rioting spreading beyond Paris to the north
and south of the country and extending beyond young Muslims to unemployed
African, Afro-Caribbean, and white young people, the situation is being
used by Sarkozy to blame "Jihadist conspiracists" for coordinating
the rioting. Sarkozy has strong links to the Likud Party in Israel and
the neo-cons in the Bush administration and the Blair government in London.
The neo-con media conglomerates such as Rupert Murdoch's News Corporation
and the Hollinger Group are blaming the violence on France's relative tolerance
of its large Muslim population. The neo-con media is also playing up reports
that French rioters are proclaiming that they are turning Paris into "Baghdad."
The always reprehensible neo-con racist Mark Steyn, who pens his vile hate-filled
garbage for the Chicago Sun Times and other neo-con rags, writes that the
rioting youths are not really French but Arabs taking advantage of Jacques
Chirac's "weakness" on Iraq. Funny, but this editor never met
too many Arabs from Cayenne, Fort-de-France, Basse-Terre, Abidjan, Antananarivo,
Porto Novo, or Brazzaville. Too bad about the neo-cons, geography and history
don't seem to be their strong points. Racist talking points, on the other
hand, are their stock in trade.
- What is happening in France has all the signs of yet
another possible neo-con "false flag" operation in the same category
as the Niger fraudulent uranium documents, the provocative actions of Israeli
agents in New Jersey who were dressed up as Arabs during the morning of
9-11, unexplained Spanish and British government activities surrounding
the train bombings in Madrid and London, and recent deadly bombings in
Delhi during Hindu and Muslim holidays attributed to a previously unknown
Kashmiri group. The neo-cons have been unhappy about India's Congress government
(a government the neo-cons are trying to link to the UN Oil-for-Food scandal),
which unlike the previous Hindu nationalist government, is making peace
overtures to neighboring Pakistan. As with France, India immediately suspected
closely coordinated planning in the bombings and sought to analyze intercepts
of thousands of cell phone calls placed in the Indian capital shortly before
- The French politician who benefits the most from this
explosion of violence in a country where Muslim citizens constitute a significant
minority is Sarkozy. The losers stand to be de Villepin's faction of the
Gaullist RPR party and a newly-resurgent Socialist Party, which rejects
the neo-con international agenda. It is not coincidental that the rioting
is mainly plaguing cities and towns governed by Socialist and Communist
mayors -- leaders who are now caught between addressing the social problems
that helped spark the violence and responding to calls for a return to
law and order.
- The Socialists, Greens, and Communists are charging Sarkozy
with inciting greater violence and then failing to respond to it adequately,
thus ensuring the rioting would spread beyond mainly Muslim areas in Paris
to wealthier Parisian neighborhoods and beyond Paris to Rouen, Lille, Nice,
Dijon, Strasbourg, Marseilles, Bordeaux, Rennes, Pau, Orleans, and Toulouse.
Later, the closely coordinated rioting spread further to Lyon, Roubaix,
Avignon, Saint-Dizier, Drancy, Evreux, Nantes, Dunkirk, Montpellier, Valenciennes,
Cannes, and Tourcoing.
- As in Italy, Britain, Switzerland, and Germany, there
are strong links in France between Islamist fundamentalist provocateurs
and neo-Nazis. For example, French National Front leader Jean-Marie Le
Pen is close to Achmed Huber, formerly of Al Taqwa, a Swiss and Italian
financial group linked by the United States Treasury Department to Al Qaeda.
Informed sources in Germany and the United States have also linked Huber
to the activities of Panamanian dictator Manuel Noriega during the Iran-Contra
covert operations conducted by the Reagan-Bush administration. Interestingly,
French intelligence and law enforcement are reporting that the riots in
France involve international narcotics smugglers.
- The possibility that neo-cons and their fascist allies
are manipulating the violence in France to their own advantage has the
net result of bringing France into the neo-con's oft-stated goal of a "Clash
of Civilizations" between the West and the Muslim world. The likes
of Mark Steyn are already insidiously referring to the Frankish-Muslim
732 Battle of Tours between a Moorish army and the forces of Charles Martel.
Reasonable political leaders in France should realize that France is being
used to ratchet up tension in Europe and distract attention away from recent
reports of US secret prison camps and torture centers in Eastern Europe
and additional proof that the neo-cons conspired to push the United States
into a disastrous war in Iraq. Already, the neo-con media is blaming the
violence in France on Islamic terrorists -- a stock phrase for the neo-cons
in Washington, London, Jerusalem, Rome, and the French Interior Ministry
allies of Sarkozy. However, most of the rioters, mostly from North Africa
and Western Africa, are not even practicing Muslims, making the possibility
of "Fifth Column" provocateurs being behind the violence all
the more likely. French officials are increasingly suggesting that the
violence has been closely coordinated and that the primary targets -- trains,
police stations, youth centers, banks, libraries, post offices, municipal
buildings, schools -- have all been connected to the French government
and not to ethnic or religious groups.
- Muslim rioting has also spread to Arhus, Denmark and
police in predominantly Muslim neighborhoods in Brussels are on full alert.
The Danish rioting conveniently broke out as a parliamentary inquiry is
due to get underway on the lying by the neo-con influenced government of
Anders Fogh Rasmussen on bogus Iraqi WMD intelligence. Neo-con media organs
in Europe and North America are suspiciously blaming the Muslim violence
on Europe's "welfare state."
- The National Security Agency and other signals intelligence
agencies that monitor French communications are likely in possession of
intercepts that would point to interesting outside interference in coordinating
and promoting the French violence and the resultant counter-actions by
Sarkozy. It would be interesting to read the transcripts of Sarkozy's recent
telephone conversations with his co-ideologists in Washington, London,
Brussels, Jerusalem, and Rome. A few years ago, a senior inspector with
the French DST (FBI) told this editor that his agency's wiretaps of Richard
Perle's home in the south of France had yielded some interesting information,
all of which was passed to the FBI in Washington. Perhaps it is time that
raw intercepts of international phone calls and e-mail among the neo-cons
be leaked in order to hang them using their own past tactics. With their
fingerprints beginning to appear on the French rioting, the neo-cons are
proving that they will not be put down easily.
