Yes, it is a two way street. Again though, I could just as easily apply this statement to the indigenous population...even the bit about the language!
I suppose what I am saying is that I don't agree with pointing the finger solely at the 'immigrant' population for all societies ills (and I'm not saying that you are Stu. I hope you don't take it like that). There are bad apples in every barrel.
Interestingly, there was a bit on Channel 4 news the other day saying that the only way we in the UK can sustain a birth rate which provides enough people in work to maintain our present GDP is by, yes, you guessed it...immigration.
Police also found a gasoline bomb-making factory in a rundown building in Evry, a southern Paris suburb that contained 150 explosives, more than 100 bottles, gallons of fuel and hoods for hiding rioters’ faces, Jean-Marie Huet, a senior Justice Ministry official, said Sunday.

stumason, you have the May Day riots every year in Germany which normally ends up with a fair bit of damage being caused. You also get them in the United Kingdom, however they have a small percentage of people turning up which are Muslims.
In fact, in all the ones I have turned up at [which is a lot] I have never seen a "Muslim" even speek at one of the events.
In fact, there are at least two riots a year in the United Kingdom. That is excluding Ireland. If you take Ireland into account the idea that it is mainly muslims is...blown out of the water to be honest.

What cannot be denied, is that recently in several European countries now, there have been lots of riots and extensive damage over relatively minor things that have been caused by those of a muslim descent, rather than focusing on them soley as Muslims, then denying it is Muslims because they dont do that...

As violence continues for the eleventh night running BBC News 24 are reporting that French police have come under fire.
Youths, in interviews, have boasted that they were intensifying the violence because of a sort of "competition" between gangs from different suburbs to get media attention.
They have also expressed anger at Sarkozy, who described delinquents in the suburbs as "rabble" and vowed to clean up crime in the neighbourhoods "with a power-hose."
