Rioting by French Muslims has continued for the sixth night, and has spread from Clichy-sous-Bois to neighboring suburbs northeast of Paris. Rioters battled police, and as many as 100 fires were reported burning last night.
The Paris riots are just one small part of a worrisome picture. Over much of Europe, chronically slow economic growth has combined with a demographic crisis, comprised of low birth rates and inadequate assimilation of immigrants, to create the potential for explosive social unrest.
Let’s just hope they don’t ask us to bail them out again.
