Smith quells rioting in France

Friday, November 11th, 2005 - 3:19 pm PST

After two weeks of riots in France, Rev. Smith was flown to Paris today to hammer out a compromise between thousands of disaffected, unemployed, second-generation immigrant suburban youths and the French government, widely seen as discriminatory and anti-immigration. Smith’s proposal calls for a massive building project that will provide jobs for 200,000 unskilled and semiskilled laborers. That project is a massive 50-meter high wall around France which would deter further immigration. The French government was quick to accept the plan, with prime minister Villepin noting that a side benefit of such a wall would be to “repel a German invasion, should the occasion arise.”
