Submitted by 100 on 10 November, 2005 - 00:46 #61 Admin, I accept what you are saying about France's attitudes and welfare but simply do not accept that the rioting is an acceptable course of action under the circumstances, and I account for the evidence that al Qaeda has fanned the flames. I have consistently discounted that there is any racist thinking in this, and I feel those who argue thus are excusing heinous behaviour simply on the basis they are offended that any Muslims are implicated. It is a misplaced sense of pride and towing a party line. Given the behaviour under discussion that is unacceptable. Again I remind you that you misrepresented Sarkozy. Perhaps that is another of my posts you didn't read. I am happy with my paragraphs, and the fact you don't see the need to give them close reading before you respond that you disagree serves only to demerit your 'reply'. seraph, your post also doesn't address my points. I am far from suggesting 'Muslims bad'.
