Israeli security advisors met with their French counterparts in Paris “to advise the French on how to effectively quell massive riots like there were in France in November,” according to a senior security official. Internal Security Minister Gideon Ezra and Police Insp.-Gen. Moshe Karadi flew to Paris for three days of “classified meetings” with French government and law enforcement officials. Israeli police are considered a world expert in counterterrorism as well as riot control. French police arrested close to 3,000 people after thousands of Muslim and African youths rioted across the country. Dozens were injured in the riots and close to 9,000 cars were torched.
