Generic Youths Burn Bus in Paris.

Generic Youths of in Paris are celebrating last years generic riots in Paris this week by burning a bus.

The MSM are preparing to cover more generic violence by angry generic youths in remembrance last year’s generic violence.

International Herald Tribune: PARIS Police held two teenagers for questioning Monday after a gang of youths forced passengers out of a bus in a Paris suburb this weekend and set it on fire, officials said.

The two teens, aged 13 and 18, were rounded up after the attack Sunday in Grigny, south of Paris, and were being held in a regional police office in nearby Evry, police said.

The attack came days before France is to mark the one-year anniversary of the start of three weeks of riots by youths in poor neighborhoods.

Sunday's assailants, some wearing masks, forced passengers out of the bus in broad daylight, set it ablaze and then stoned firefighters who came to the rescue, police officials said. The local prefecture said nearly 30 youths were involved in the incident.

The attack followed nearly a half-dozen incidents in recent weeks in which suburban youths have attacked police officers, in some cases in planned ambushes.

Such clashes have raised tensions ahead of Friday's anniversary of the start of the 2005 riots, which laid bare the problems of racism and discrimination faced by poor youths of immigrant origin.

Those poor generic youths! I bet burning busses and trashing old rich Fwench guy’s cars will make them more likely to hire generic youths. I must know more about these generic youths. I’ll keep clicking. Hold on. More here from the Telegraph UK who mentions the many of the generic youths who rioted last year were mostly Muslim.
Youths from France’s run-down suburban estates began rioting on October 27, 2005, after two teenagers of North African origin died when they were accidentally electrocuted in a sub-station while trying to flee police in Clichy-sous-Bois, east of Paris.

Riots erupted over the following weeks in most of the country’s major cities. Many of those involved were from Muslim immigrant families, prompting a debate about integration and discrimination in France. Amid fears of a fresh eruption of violence, Jean-Louis Borloo, France’s minister for social cohesion, on Sunday evening called for people to act responsibly because “tensions are raw just as we’re in the process of resolving the difficulties.”

So remember, act responsibly and call them youths. Since, you know, it would be incorrect to demand the youths act responsibly. And the strongest statement so I can find so far from the Fwench
The Australian: District police chief Jean-Francois Papineau called the bus attack "deliberate".
Deliberate? I’m sure the youths accidentally burned the bus. Better watch that word deliberate you could start a riot or something. Still searching to find of which generic youths burned the bus. One minute….Oh here it is.
Pipeline News: October 23, 2006 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - French police found themselves once again under attack by firebomb wielding North African Muslim immigrants on Sunday.

The Paris suburb of Grigny was the scene of the pitched battle which featured 50 Islamic youths rampaging through the streets taunting police, pelting them with rocks and torching passenger vehicles including a bus.

No, you have got to be kidding me! I’d have never guessed. And I'm damn sure not going to call the riots terrorism. Terrorism is using fear of violence to achive a political goal. I'm sure these boys were just expressing themselves. Add the that the fact that, if I called it terrorism, I might upset some generic youths and cause a riot.
