Over hele Europa lager innvandrerungdom, les: muslimer, opptøyer. Det er et trekk som går igjen, som er påtagelig: hatet mot politiet. Man går til angrep på politiet.

Her er en scene fra Brussel onsdag:

Wednesday afternoon a police patrol interrogating a victim of a violent robbery in the Anderlecht suburb of Brussels, was circled by a growing group of youth. The police felt threatened and called in reinforcements with police-hounds.

The inspection of Brahim (25) was also exceptionally difficult. Stones were thrown at the agents, and they decided to put the dogs back in the car and calm the situation. This didn’t work. Brahim threw the inspector down the steps of a metro-station and beat him black-and-blue. A colleague couldn’t get Brahim off the inspector and only when a third agent showed up with a hound could Brahim be kept in check. Till the last moment the young men tried to incite the crowd against the agents.

Meanwhile, the security services were dealing with a group of youth who were troubling workers at the Rustplein in Sint-Jans-Moleenbeek. Additional reinforcements were sent there too.

Elsewhere youth set fire to a parked car, in order to challenge the agents. Several minutes later, there was a confrontation between a group of a Pakistanis and a group of North Africans, the former suspecting the latter of stealing a bike. The ‘suspect’ had nothing to do with the case, but the atmosphere in the neighborhood was tense.

Later a police car stopped a Renault Clio in Sint-Jans-Moleenbeek. Two of its three passengers were suspected of trying to cause riots a few days earlier. One of the passengers had drugs in his possession, and the registration documents were not in order. This inspection also caused tensions, but the situation was was quickly calmed down.

Det ser ut til å pågå en langsom lavintens intifada mot samfunnsmyndigheter. De er som regel ikke store og omfattende, men ser man dem i sammenheng danner de et mønster. Angrep på politi, men enda mer angrep på ambulanser og brannmenn, sier noe om at det er samfunnsordenen man angriper, og det er samme mønster fra land til land.
