Whats taking place in France

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

Submitted by faqi Hussain (United States), Nov 8, 2005 at 20:45

It is unfortunate the world's media covering the riots in France, never mention Muslims. Its "north African youths" or 'immigrant youths" etc. Why not relate the truth. Its the children of the Muslim immigrants born in France who are creating this mayhem. They are shouting "Allahu Akbar" as they torch cars and throw missiles at the Gendarmes. Its nothing to do with immigrants, but the Muslims who never could assimilate. Their ideology does not approve it to be French.

There are hundreds of Christians, Sikhs, Hindus and other religious groups of immigrants in France who have assimilated and they are not on the streets buring cars and buses.

The International press without 'beating about the bush' should come out and say its the MUSLIMS who are rioting; why this double standard?

As far as the comments of Tariq Ramadan is concerned, its of no significance, he is the grandson of the founder of the very first violent terrorist outfit in Egypt - the Muslim brother hood which is banned in Egypt as a terrorist outfit. Ramadan is banned from coming into the US or France and some other European countries.
