Despite a first-of-its-kind-in-Europe ban on demonstrations in Paris, pro-Palestinian protestors gathered to demonstrate against Israel on Saturday. When police tried to break up the protest, rioters threw rocks and other debris while chanting “Israel, assassin.”

Protests in Paris were banned following the demonstration last weekend that ended up threatening two synagogues.

The government of President Hollande has come under fire for the ban, as far-left groups accused Hollande of favoring Israel while far-right groups criticized him for policies they say encourage lawlessness among immigrants.

The Wall Street Journal reports:

The clashes underscore a dilemma facing France’s Socialist government. President François Hollande has faced searing criticism in France—home to Europe’s biggest Muslim minority—for what pro-Palestinian groups say is his failure to take a stand against Israel’s incursions in the Gaza strip.

At the same time, Mr. Hollande is under pressure from even broader swaths of the French public, which blames minorities and immigrants for a perceived rise in violent crime and delinquency. The far-right National Front is garnering support by accusing Mr. Hollande’s ranks of being soft on crime and illegal immigration.

Saturday’s clashes occurred at the tail end of a large rally that had been called by several French political organizations, including the far-left New Anticapitalist Party, despite a French government ban.

The rally had been banned on Friday after government officials expressed concern that it could turn violent. Last Sunday, a similar rally in Paris sought to steer the march toward two synagogues and clashed with riot police, and eight arrests.

Earlier Saturday, French President François Hollande justified the decision to ban the rally at a news conference, saying groups have other ways to express themselves. “Those who want at any cost to protest will be held accountable,” he told TV cameras.

Nevertheless, French TV showed a large number of protesters showing up at 3 p.m., chanting and waving Palestinian flags under raised metro tracks. French television estimated between several hundred and several thousand people attended the rally at its peak, but the police official said the police didn’t immediately have any estimate.

The tension between the Muslim and Jewish populations in France has been building for years, which has led to many violent attacks. Reuters reports that “more Jews left France for Israel than at any other time since the Jewish state was created in 1948, with many citing rising anti-Semitism as a factor.”

Saturday’s demonstrations are not going to improve the situation.

And the weirdest thing is: Everything that the French feared groundlessly about the Jews - that they were unassimilable, implacably hostile to French culture and religion, and intended to seize control of the society - happens to be true of the Muslims they have so eagerly welcomed. Go figure.

Hatred of the jews in europe is on the rise and the people the non-muslim public is cowering in the corner. Hey I got an idea. Why don't we acknowledge that it is the mulims of the world who force us to wait three hours to board a plane. They are the ones killing the innocent and bombing the rest of us at every turn. They are the ones who are turning france the UK and other european nations like sweden and the netherlands into hell holes and terrorizing the citizenry right and left. They are now on the shores of America and within our schools and universities it is the same thing. Gangs and thugs with hatred in their hearts and killing on their agenda.. I say expel all these muslim terrorists back to the hell holes they came from

I've traveled a lot to France, but not since 1997. And this is why. The only problems I ever had on four different lengthy vacations there was from Muslims. My French was decent and I respected French culture so I was treated well by the French, very well. And I of course realized how proud they were of their culture.

I knew long ago when the muzzies, for short, started demanding that the French need to adapt to Islam, and not them to France, there would be problems. This does not make me any kind of genius. Then the next demand, was that the French language was too complicated, in ways similar to English with inconsistent pronunciations, dipthongs, etc. that the language needed to be changed to a simpler spelling system, that even the left had it with these losers.

Too bad the frogs let this go on for so long. Watch the tv show "Sprial" a French series you can find online as it was shown on the BBC. They need to ship these losers back, as they will never assimilate in France. They are bleeding the economy dry, and take up something like 80 percent of the jail bunks in France. Most are on welfare.

It is a shame, because it is a beautiful country. Why did France take so long to react? It seems like the EU just takes away the rights of citizens of a country to make their own decisions about very basic things.

"France—home to Europe’s biggest Muslim minority"

There's the problem right in front of their eyes. Nothing good will happen to France if they continue be PC with them.

Fascinating how the entire Arab world is giving the Gaza thing one big "meh" or actively hoping the Israelis kick ass while it's the Muslims of Paris and London who are turning out to riot.

Well, you know what would happen if there were street riots in Saudi, or Iran, or....
First they'd get some good propaganda photo's. Then round up the photogs and sweep the streets with machine gun fire and arrest the survivors. Peace and Freedom in action.

Yes! And that is where the 'peace' in religion of peace comes from. They make their own 'peace' and on their own terms. The sooner we understand that the sooner we can commence 'cleanup on isle four'!

When a poisonous snake slithers into your house and says "Let me warm myself at your hearth, I'll wash you dishes and clean your house" the smart thing to do is either chop off his head or send him back to his nest. The French did neither. Now they have a house full of snakes.

The problem is the Jews and Liberals consider White Christians to be the snake. Muslims are their pet mongooses.

What are socialists like Hollande thinking?

Do they think that if they leave Muslim extremists alone they will be left alone in turn to a build socialist utopias?

Or do they think if they engage in Kumbaya foreign policies that everything will be peachy?

The Jews are leaving France and the Muslims are coming in and hey, who would have known, the riots now just keep on coming. And it doesn't seem to worry anyone there too much from a future of France perspective. Except the Jews. There's one piece of good news, not for them but for us, as we here in the non European West watch what things happen in France then maybe, just maybe, someone in power here will wake up.

After two fierce attempts Rome they gave up and came up with a new interpretation of their religion. The lesson should apply to the Muslim as well. Soundly defeat them, their Imans, and destroy their mosques -- in a few generations they will invent a new peaceful interpretation of their religion. Of course, that is a Roman solution, and only Liberals think we are an empire.

I think you mean Spiral. It's a cop show and is very successful in both France and several other countries. You might also see it under its French title, Engrenages. It's not hard to find English language subtitles for it if you can find the programs.
