maybe there's some truth to the idea that disaffected young Muslim men in Europe are right now more susceptible to being encouraged to separate themselves and view themselves as outsiders. I don't know. I think it's ignorant to call this the "french intifada" or whatever...but it seems like many of the children of Muslim immigrants to Europe feel caught between cultures, and discrimination only pushes them away.

It's quite discusting.
Because we've never seen conspiracy threads about Christianity in FYM...

It's not enough to simply state that they are Muslim because they are not only members of that religion, they are French by birth and familiarity. They have dual identities. Few Americans have dual citizenship so it's not something we understand easily.

I guess we cannot discuss what we should not be discussing.

It is so much easier to point the fingers at the religion as the cause than to look at the root cause.

I would say this, compare it to the Rodney King riots, this is a whole bunch tamer.
