Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Hi Jerome, I'm glad your aunt is well and hope your whole family is as well.  Thanks for a even toned diary on what is happening in France-it certainly seems to be hitting some buttons over at bootrib and here also really.

Since I know little about France and it's social structure and politics I don't want to jump in and make to many comments-other than it seems so far to me that this is appears to be more a social/economic issue which is always the mother of all unrest anywhere to my mind-everything usually follows from that.  What causes the economic or social problems are varied of course and seem to me to be race and religion depending on where you're at in the world to varying degrees of ascendancy.

I do feel that no country seems to learn a basic facts of human decency towards immigrants and that is everyone wants to be treated decent, have decent education and decent job to become part of that society..how hard is that to implement.  I'm not talking about France here but all countries in general...that idea doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out does it?
