Unlike the author of this WaPo article, noted by Peter below, the incomparable Mark Steyn doesn’t think that the riots are simply a demand for recognition, a la Frantz Fanon. Here’s his bottom line:
French cynics like the prime minister, Dominique de Villepin, have spent the last two years scoffing at the Bush Doctrine: Why, everyone knows Islam and democracy are incompatible. If so, that’s less a problem for Iraq or Afghanistan than for France and Belgium.
Read the whole thing, but also think about this line from the WaPo article:
"We dont have the American dream here," said Rezzoug, as he surveyed the clusters of young men. "We dont even have the French dream here."
