Paris Goes Down in Flames II

AP: Paris Rioters Set Woman Afire as Violence Spreads---

A savage assault on a bus passenger highlighted the dangers of travel in Paris' Muslim-filled and impoverished outlying neighborhoods, where the violence has entered its second week.

The African immigrant attackers doused the woman, in her 50s and on crutches, with an inflammable liquid and set her afire as she tried to get off a bus in the suburb of Sevran Wednesday, judicial officials said. The bus had been forced to stop because of burning objects in its path. She was rescued by the driver and hospitalized with severe burns.

CNN chooses to believe Frustration and anger fuel unrest, rather than the fact that these arsonist/terrorist/criminal rioters are Muslims and behaving as Muslims behave all over the Middle East.
