Riots in France? What Riots?

While American media continues to focus on the Gulf oil spill and the Obama family mini-vacation, the rest of the world is dealing with more violence from people who just happen to be Muslims (just don't call it "Muslim violence).

While France experienced a night of riots last night from "hoodlums and delinquents" (who also just happened to live in an area whose population is mostly Muslim immigrants).

From BBC News:

The trouble started when police pursued two men suspected of holding up the casino at Uriage-les-Bains early on Friday morning.

The two men fired shots at them, police said, wounding an officer. Police returned fire, killing one of the men, Karim Boudouda.

Mr Boudouda, 27, had three previous convictions for armed robbery.

The second suspected robber was still at large as of Saturday afternoon.

The riot erupted after a memorial service for Mr Boudouda, and saw more than 50 cars burned.

While the Daily Mail is more direct on the nature of rioters:

France was on riot alert yesterday after hundreds of Muslim youths went on the rampage in Grenoble.

Shots were fired at police and dozens of shops and cars were set on fire in the Alpine town. Trams and buses were also held up by gangs brandishing baseball bats and bars, and a service station was looted.

Where is the American media in reporting these types of incidents? Our President has ordered the term "Islamic Terrorist" removed from all official communications and speech. Is the American media going to follow the President's lead and ignore the very real possibility that the spread of Islam and the spread of violence is more then happenstance?
