Valiant French response miraculously quells violence.

PARIS -- From all across Europe and North Africa today, telegrams of admiration and praise poured into the French capital in acknowledgement of what leaders of nations are calling a miracle: the sudden calming effect that French sit-in demonstrators had on the riots and violence by disaffected immigrant youths, which have rocked scores of Parisian suburbs over the last two weeks.

"The sight of that group of brave patriots sitting there in open defiance of what we were doing," said disaffected immigrant youth Sajeev al Aqbar ibn Muhammad, "impelled us to cease our rageful activites."

Within minutes of witnessing the sitting protesters, hundreds of disaffected immigrant youths began dousing car fires started only moments before, dropping their brickbats, embracing policemen, and publically renouncing violence as a way of effecting social change.

"What got me right here," added disaffected immigrant youth Ibrahim al Siddiqui, gesturing to his robed chest, "was when they started swaying to John Lennon's Imagine."

"If we can mobilize a few dozen more sit-in style demonstrations in the Sunni Triangle, Amman, Damascus and Tehran," said organizer Jean-Luc de la Paix, "we feel the Middle East will give peace a chance."

Patrick,

The link isn't working.

I'm soooooo sure it was the protesters that ended the rioting (Sarcasm).

You should put up a barf-alert for this.

I think things will calm down for awhile. But it will happen again! France has become a Pagan country that has been running on fumes since Napolean. They invited a bunch of extreme Islamics in and think they can appease these people. Sadly, France used to be the richest place for cannonized saints, now it is full of Pagans. But I don't feel sorry for them, they brought it on theirselves!

I wasnt aware that it had calmed down yet, I guess I better get better updated on the news.
I agree, I do believe that it will only calm down for a while, hopefully a long while.

Welcome, Carmel, and g'day.

"Calming down," when you're talking centuries of Muslim uprisings, is a relative state of affairs.
