Why are there riots in western countries too?

Reader comment on item: Why mocking Muhammad is not hate speech

If only these people could calm themselves down and not become crazed and killing each other and frenzies in the streets just because of silly things being distributed by their Imams. I do not understand why those who live in western countries do not adopt the cultural values of the countries they live in. Something is very wrong with this picture. It is one thing for hordes of very religious Muslims to do what they do in Pakistan or other Arab countries, but those living in France or England should understand better. Why is that happening?
