I don't know, this doesn't feel like anything new. The arabs of these neighborhoods do this often. They terrorize the other inhabitants, they attack
the police, they burn cars. The only reason that can be established is a claim of «ras le bol des jeunes qui se sentent exclus de tout». ("young
people fed up with feeling excluded from everything"
This is a fairly common occurance in France. It is why much of the french feel they are being terrorized and taken over by the young arab population.
We have a problem with the second generation of immigrants. Cultural identity and resentment is a problem for them. They have not been encouraged to
integrate the society, because of the religion, which doesn't allow for laicism or secularism. So they want to be part of their environment, while
also rejecting it violently, as their religious values teach them they must do.
This is a continuing struggle going in France. The french, very concerned with human rights and compassion for the oppressed, are being completely
taken over by them, afraid of seeming racist by taking any action. (the injuries that happened in this event were police, and no arrests were done).
For those who are really into the whole "poor oppressed need to rise up against authority" thing- keep in mind that the other inhabitants of those
buildings, (old people, french and arab, children, etc.) are the victims of these events. Their cars and buildings and schools are being destroyed,
they are living in fear, and the police are too bullied to save them.
