One year after the banlieue car-b-qs, they’re on maximum youth alert in doomed France:
France’s interior minister ordered police to go on maximum alert in at-risk areas around the country after several buses were torched in suburbs ahead of the anniversary of widespread rioting last year.
“I decided to mobilize all mobile forces at our disposal for the security of those who use public transport,” Nicolas Sarkozy, a conservative frontrunner in next year’s presidential elections, said overnight Thursday.
Another alert is also in place:
Hamas has instructed its followers in the West Bank and Gaza Strip to be on high alert following unconfirmed reports that Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas and his Fatah party are planning a coup against the Hamas government on Saturday.
Sources close to Hamas told The Jerusalem Post that the Islamic movement was taking these reports seriously and that hundreds of Hamas militiamen would be deployed in strategic areas in the Gaza Strip to foil any attempt to overthrow the Hamas government …
On Thursday, a group of PA policemen in Ramallah and Gaza City said they were planning to torch the offices of the PA Finance Ministry if they did not receive their full salaries within the next 48 hours.
This is better than the World Series.
UPDATE. andycanuck points out re the World Series: “You can still have a rain delay at a car-b-q unless you go with a domed riot area.”
