Victims of Racism

Reader comment on item: Reflections on the Revolution in France*

Submitted by SULTAN (Turkey), Nov 8, 2005 at 13:02

İslamofaschist terrorism is a huge crime,but only have few amount of marginal followers .These who feel sympathy to the terrorists are mainly some Arabs who are harmed by USA.I and millions hate them.

Todays Rebels in France has nothing to do with islam. Most of the Europeans are seriously racist people. I have been to EU many times for short periods.I look like a typical Mediterreanean person. But when I say I am Turkish their attitude changes immediately. After speaking for ten minutes very friendly with the Dutch taxi driver he suddenly stops talking when he learns I am a Turk. İn the plane after talking in a very nice athmosphere with a very attractive middle aged Swedish woman first she thinks I am joking when ı say that I am a Turk than changes her seat to the point where she cant see me any more.Of course the ones we work with dont do things like this. But I cant help feeling inferior complex when I see the ordinary peoples looks in their eyes. For this reason I hate to travel there.

I cant imagine permanently living in EU under such a deep racicm. İlligal immigrants in the EU are minority. All these Africans and Arabs in France and Turks in Germany were invited there in the 1960 s when these countries desperately needed workers.But they had children.And children had children. French did not give jobs to them.French did not rent houses to them.Police always thought they were criminals.They were forced to live far away from the white french under very bad conditions like animals.And they exploded like a volcano.This is very normal.This rebel will finish in few days.But the problem in france will not finish.They have to learn that these people are humans too.Than the solution is very simple.But I have little hope for French since they are at the top of racizm.

İn Germany this kind of revolt will not happen. If it happens I would be very surprised. Because although also the Turks are very much hated by Germans there,they live in much better conditions in Germany. Many Turks established their own business and even have German workers.So simply Turks wont be able to explain their reasons of revolt.Besides These rebels will have very bad effect on our EU dreams for sure.

Finally I certainly dont join to your conclusion that İslam religion is part of the reasons (İn fact main reason according to you) of these revolts.I dont know if all those black youth are muslims anyway. I also dont want to believe that sweet dream of universal cultural compatibility is replaced by the nightmare of permanent conflict. I hope not. İf this is so, what is your next plan not forgetting the USA presence in the world in almost every country? (military and economic.)
