It’s entirely possible that there were also four nights of presents if enough stores got taken down. But who are we to judge the religious customs of another culture?
For three nights in a row there have been heavy Muslim riots in Hamburg-Altona. On Thursday evening a mob attacked policemen. Last night they burned cars and hurled stones.
The battle cry "Allahu Akbar" can be heard in the video. About 150 young people gathered Friday night in Chemnitz Street and in Holsten Street. "They wanted to let loose," said a police spokesman. First the rioters only lit firecrackers; later they torched cars.
In Karl Wolff Street a car was completely gutted. Another car was set on fire in Hospital Street, but was able to be extinguished. Some time later the tires of another car were burning. More than 100 police officers were out in force. They used pepper spray against the rioters. In response the mob hurled stones at the officers. A 21-year-old man was arrested.
The riots started on Thursday night when a group of youths blinded car drivers with a laser pointer. The police moved in -- and suddenly saw a group of over 150 people moving towards them. 16 rioters were detained.
