My view: The true nature of French violence.

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

Submitted by Elliott J. Blumberg (United States), Nov 9, 2005 at 12:04

Dear Dr. Pipes,
I think the French are making the same mistake made initially by the Israelis and later by the U.S. These crimes are not social nor political protests, they are hate crimes and until the rest of the world recognizes their true nature and treats them accordingly, rioting, destruction of property and worse will continue.
E. J. Blumberg
