Muslim arrogance

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

Submitted by Concerned European (Lithuania), Nov 10, 2005 at 10:05

Obviously there is discrimination of Muslims in France, but one has to ask - why French regard Muslims so badly? There is little secret that the rate of Muslim delinquency in France and elsewhere(I think there was Daniel's article about the situation in Denmark) is several times more than that of the average population. Why Muslims youths are so prone to make crimes? I think the reason is clear - these youths, although they have largely abandoned traditional piety of their father and grandfather's generation, have not abandoned the Muslim arrogance (or rather they have terribly inflated it), the arrogance which tells that "infidels" are semihumans, at the best or animals(monkeys and pigs) at the worst. So they do not think that the laws written by "infidel" governments and societies are written for them. And when they see that they, "the best community of mankind", are underdog, and those "infidels" who, according to their views should be dhimmis without human rights, govern over them, their rage increases hunderdfold. I think here is the root of the problem, and unless Western governments start to tackle the issue, there will be no good news for the West.
