The unsightly and filthy tents, illegally erected in the commune of Sevran, northeast of Paris, and used by Muslims for praying during the month of Ramadan, were ordered removed by the court, fueling anger and warnings that the situation could escalate into riots (as always happens whenever the Muslim freeloaders don’t get their way)
Breitbart (h/t Marvin W) If the tents are not removed by the deadline, the city could face fines of €2,000 per day.
Mostefa Arar, secretary general of a local Muslim association, said: “It has been four years since we installed the tents on this parking lot, at the furthest place from the houses to disturb as little as possible.”
“In all the other neighbourhoods of Sevran donors allow associations to install tents, why should not we have the right to do so?” Arar added and called the court case a “provocation”.
Sevran has a high number of residents with migrant backgrounds, most from Muslim-majority countries. As far back as 2013, it was shown that more than half of the residents of the area, declared a “sensitive urban zone” or NO GO Zones, were from migrant backgrounds.
Riots are not uncommon in Paris’s suburbs and are usually ignited by interactions between locals and the police, as was the case last year when major rioting broke out after a resident claimed police had purposely inserted a baton into his rectum. Later evidence and expert testimony cast doubt on Theo’s original claim.
