well done Marwan Mohd.
does he have a regular spot?
all media organs cherry pick the news to fit their agenda.
One should apply an element of scepticism to any report.
Question Author
One thing is cherry picking the other is to have every fact completely wrong.
/// There's a small difference between the two: "Seine Saint Denis" includes 40 cities, ///

Or even a certain Marwan Muhammad it would seem, 40 cities within the city of Paris?????
I find some of the the papers absolutely hilarious...better than comics. The Mail on Sunday is particularly funny......the trouble is that there are people who believe, to the letter, what is written in these papers.
40 is the number of communes. Maybe down to translation error?
According to the Guardian: //a Daily Mail source insisted the article had only been taken off the site temporarily and the “the intention is to restore it” after considering the complaints and correcting where necessary. The source admitted it may have confused the population of Saint-Denis with that of the department of Seine-Saint-Denis, where 1.6 million people live.//

The Telegraph has reported that the number of illegal immigrants in the area is now estimated to be 400,000 - one fifth of the population of Seine-Saint-Denis. Poor France.

Yes many years ago my wife and I spent our Golden Wedding at a hotel in St Denis, at that time it was a lovely area.
Believe what you want to.
I read the original article. was it true? I cannot say, but set against personal knowledge of Aulnay-Sous-Bois and Le Blanc-Mesnil, (both in the Saint-Denis area of North-East Paris) it would come as no surprise to me if it was true. walking around Aulnay in the daytime is scary enough - I wouldn't do it at night. Marwan Muhammad is probably right to say there are no sharia courts - provided that the statement is tempered with "state sanctioned or approved". the community will always first be encouraged to sort its own affairs so you can bet there are unofficial courts in the mosques dispensing sharia judgments.

This is very close to the peaceful and safe area mentioned in the report.

//A trio of seventeen-year-old youths in the French department of Val-d’Oise were arrested early Tuesday morning after they “lynched” a man coming to the aid of his wife, who was also attacked by the group.
The incident occurred sometime between the late night of Monday and early morning Tuesday and saw the wife of the victim confront a group of six youths who were being loud and obnoxious in the street outside of the couple’s home, Le Parisien reports.
While confronting the drunken youths, the woman was said to have been met with a torrent of abusive language and during the confrontation one of the men dropped a glass bottle which shattered on the ground and then proceeded to attack the woman with it.
The husband of the woman then attempted to come to her aid and, according to witnesses, was thrown on the ground and viciously beaten, being kicked repeatedly in the body and the head.
Police arrived on the scene a short time later and arrested three members of the group of youths while the man and his wife, both believed to be in their thirties, were taken to nearby Eaubonne hospital.//
"Lynched" was used by the French report and does not have the same meaning in English. Togo Edit.

//The location of the attack, Val-d’Oise, lies just north of the ‘no-go’ heavily migrant-populated suburbs of Seine-Saint-Denis, which often see incredibly brutal attacks and riots, including a 37-year-old man having his gold teeth ripped out by thieves in the area last month.
Sarcelles, a heavily migrant-populated sub-prefecture within Val-d’Oise, also made headlines in 2014 due to the extensive riots which occurred following an illegal pro-Palestine demonstration.
The riots, which many have considered to have an anti-Semitic element, saw 200 masked individuals attempt to attack a local synagogue while fires were set at the Garges-les-Gonesse-Sarcelles RER station.
Earlier this year a lesbian couple was attacked at an RER station in the department by a gang of “youths” who called the pair “lesbian ***” before assaulting them.//
anotheroldgit: confusing Seine St Denis and St. Denis is the same as confusing County Durham with the City of Durham. I must admit I've only been once to St. Denis to a flea market and the majority of people who lived there ( according to my friend who lived in Paris) were Algerian.
Well if they were drunk they weren't practising Muslims Togo, and there does seem to be a snidey sideways implication in the Mail that the problems are because of Muslim immigrants.
They give up the drink and drugs just before the martyrdom mission kvalidar.
quite a detailed takedown.
Non of the text at 11:28 came from the Mail. It was translated from a French "rag. on Wednesday this week.
In that case Togo you've translated "suburb" incorrectly as Seine St Denis is a "department" in France. St. Denis is a suburb in the north of Paris, a "community" or in french "commune".
Oh dear. I suppose that means that the rest of it is inaccurate?
