French Muslim Riots Upset MSM’s Terror Narrative

Why does this article (like so many on the recent French riots) fail to mention that the youths rioting in France are Muslim? (Tammy Bruce has made much of this omission in her post which Bruce cites below.)

I think it’s because it upsets their narrative that U.S. intervention in Iraq causes Muslim unrest. France not only refused to participate in the liberation of Iraq, but actively sought to undermine it. Certain forces, independent of U.S. policies, are stirring up unrest among Muslim communities in Europe. And we need to figure out why, not merely for our own security — and that of our allies (even our sometime allies) — but also so we can better build bridges to those Muslims who deplore such violence.

The MSM does us a great disservice — instead of reporting this story, they omit certain elements key to understanding it. Without the blogosphere (and FoxNews), we wouldn’t know what was really going on.

(GP UPDATE @ 10:30PM: AP is reporting that the unrest has reached Paris itself)

Al-Qaeda’s Ground War Begins In Europe?

Paris suburbs under siege by the elements of Islamic extremism….

Bands of youths roaming Parisian suburbs burned more than 500 vehicles and hurled stones at police Friday, as the worst rioting in a decade entered its second week and spread elsewhere in France. The U.S. warned Americans against taking trains to the airport via strife-torn areas.

Are these riots? Or a tactic?

Tammy Bruce contrasts Paris and Baghdad this week.

On the left is a picture of a country which has allowed multiculturalism and political correctness to rule. It is a place which refuses to acknowledge that we are at war with a savage enemy which lives only to destroy. On the right is a scene from the nation which has been on the front lines of that war where the savages have lost every single battle. Perhaps al-Qaida has chosen another front to pursue their “love of death?” And where would they go? Where ever the American military is not.

Bonjour Paris!

You are either with them or against them…..

Post-Katrina MSM blogging

I’m not sure how many of you know, but NBC News has waded heavily into blogging this year. There have been some excellent pieces written this week by NBC correspondents Carl Quintilla and Martin Savidge. They have both been on a ground tour of the Gulf Coast on a weeklong “Post-Katrina” assignment.

I strongly encourage you to read their dispatches from the Gulf.

It’s all over at The Daily Nightly.
