In The Restive City Of Marseilles: Muslims Who Attacked Police Refused to Recognise French Law

This is an update to a previous post detailing an attack on French police by a Muslim mob.  When I first saw the article reported in France24 I was struck by their use of the term “restive” to describe Marseilles, a term I tend to associate with less stable regions of the world.

I see now I shouldn’t have been.
