“I first saw this story a few days ago but later could not find anything about it. Today I see that François Desouche has a link to an article at Atlantico:
It’s just a news item, so to speak, that nobody, or almost nobody, talks about. And yet, it is particularly serious. For the first time since France was hit by a series of destructive, racist and antisemitic attacks, a judicial building has become the target of a sack, carried out in due form. It took place at the Administrative Tribunal of Toulouse, where four floors of magistrates’ and clerks’ offices were literally vandalized, apparently during the weekend of March 8-9.
Monday morning (March 9) around 6:30 a.m., the firemen were called in because of water damage. They were stunned. The building was flooded. Clearly, during the night, all the faucets in the building were deliberately left on. The water flowed for hours, destroying floors and false ceilings…
Since I began following French blogs I have noted several instances where court houses, even police stations have been literally laid siege to in various culturally vibrant neighborhoods.
What struck me initially was that such instances of violent Muslim diversity received at best a minor mention even in the regional press.
While the usual politically correct censorship by the mainstream media is partly to blame I have come to suspect that such occurrences are very likely considered the new normal in France and hey, there’s only so much space in the paper.
As I have no doubt too often noted to you all, look to Europe, our future is unfolding before your eyes.
