June 5th: A clash between far-right and far-left activists in front of a Paris clothing store resulted in the death of one of the latter. In reaction, according to the BBC:
Prime Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault has asked the interior minister to take steps “immediately” to dissolve the [right-wing] Revolutionary Nationalist Youth (JNR).
However the leader of the JNR, Serge Ayoub, has denied any links to Meric’s death.
Ayrault said the government was looking into whether other far-right groups could be dissolved and reiterated his promise to “cut into pieces” neo-Nazi and fascist groups in France.
The National Front has described the killing as, “appalling”.
Would Ayrault start such a witch hunt in reaction to anarchist or Muslim crime?
Addendum: This reminds of Spike TV’s Deadliest Warriors episode, Aftermath – I.R.A. vs. Taliban. Who wins? Most likely the side that doesn’t use violence.
