Beach brawl blamed on Burkini ban now blamed on Muslim men trying to claim beach

A VIOLENT flare-up linked to France’s burkini ban was today blamed on Muslim men who tried to ban locals from an area of beach.

Residents of Sisco, in the French island of Corsica, claimed that three men of Moroccan descent tried to ‘privatise’ the beach they were on by lobbing stones and vile insults at anyone trying to enter.

Three brothers of Moroccan origin and two villagers were arrested yesterday in connection with what some French media are calling a ‘burkini brawl’ after local authorities revealed that the group of tourists taking pictures of burkini-clad Muslim women did not trigger the violent scuffles.

The two Corsicans have since been released, but the three Muslim brothers remain in custody.

    This can not be true. We ARE talking about the very same religion of peace we are getting to know and love in Calgary, right?

    It is common knowledge that annoying Corsicans is unwise I guess alternate murderous societies are not catalogued in the Medina

    Why France keeps using tolerance with that type of people , they should deport them all , after many attacks there should 0 tolerance no matter what.

    Not an isolated situation in the world, with groups of young men staking out what they regard as their territory and demanding everyone who entered behave according to their ideology.

    See a similar incident 11 years ago in Australia: the 2005 Cronulla Riots:

      That is because they are settlers, not refugees.

    The Cronulla Riots! That was the same thing. Pushy Muslims trying to take over the beach.

    If the three are from Morocco, then why not send them back? You’d think that engaging in violent or criminal activity would be enough to revoke their residency status. Who needs this kind of shit?
