Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Or, if they were, their being muslim played no role in the unrest. It's great that now I can just direct people to the "French Riots" section of this wikipage instead of having to dig through the archives with google.

If you mean religion, sure, if you mean Muslim as a racialized group in Europe you're wrong. That played a key role in the riots, just as being black, with all its negative consequences in American society, was at the essence of the much more violent US race riots.
