The street violence in france is the direct result of years of govt neglect of, and racist indifference toward the country's ethnic muslim minorities, many from former French colonial possessions. Spike Lee's words referring to 9/11 are appropriate here as well: "The chickens have come home to roost..."

I beg your pardon?

You must re-read your history. True, there probably was neglect but it was from both sides - by the French governmentin the same manner that Muslim immigrants are also guilty of silar neglect! They have constantly refused to show loyalty towards the country that gave these immigrants a second chance at life.

Alright, the parents of the rebellious children today are the ones who should be blamed.

If we want to go forward, we must stop the blame game. Stop accusing the French government and the French society of refusing to integrate its Muslim population and their offspring! Hey, integration is both ways. The children of the Mulsim immigrants of yesteryears must ask their parents why they refused to accept to integrate.

Therin lies the rub!
