Blaming Islamists for these events must be nothing more than rabble rousing, racism, dumb ignorance or a combination of all three as Muslims make up around 10% of the population of France and less in the other major European countries.
To write stories intimating that fewer than 10% of any country's population (and a dispossessed minority at that) can force/impose anything not wanted by 90% of the population is absurd. Want a more plausible causal link for the rioting in France ? C'est l'economie - stupide!
I myself am not a Muslim. In fact, I am a convert to the Lord Jesus Christ and the Christian faith. I do come from a nominally Muslim background; but, i do not believe in harassing Muslim minorities any more than i believe Christians should be harassed in Islamic countries.
The Christian "majorities" of the Western countries have been called "post-Christian" since after World War 1. This means they have discarded their rich Christian faith, heritage, and patrimony as something worthless.
The plan must be : "get your own [spiritual] house in order":
6 But the righteousness based on faith speaks as follows: "DO NOT SAY IN YOUR HEART, 'WHO WILL ASCEND INTO HEAVEN?' (that is, to bring Christ down),
7 or 'WHO WILL DESCEND INTO THE ABYSS?' (that is, to bring Christ up from the dead)."
8 But what does it say? "THE WORD IS NEAR YOU, IN YOUR MOUTH AND IN YOUR HEART"--that is, the word of faith which we are preaching,
9 that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved;
10 for with the heart a person believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation.
11 For the Scripture says, "WHOEVER BELIEVES IN HIM WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED."
12 For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek; for the same Lord is Lord of all, abounding in riches for all who call on Him;
13 for "WHOEVER WILL CALL ON THE NAME OF THE LORD WILL BE SAVED."
(Romans 10:6-13 NASB)
The agenda for the West (and it's pundits) should be of getting your own house in order, not picking on the the poor, the unfortunate and the helpless. Nature,as well as the soul, abhors a vacuum.
