But, let us remove ourselves from politics for a bit and focus on the real issues.
One being the fact that Ramadan's taken on a new meaning for Muslims:
"Youths threw stones at passing people and cars, windows of parked cars were smashed, bus shelters were demolished, cars were set ablaze, a youth club was arsoned and a shop was looted. Two molotov cocktails were thrown into St. Peter's hospital, one of the main hospitals of central Brussels. The fire brigade was able to extinguish the fires at the hospital, but youths managed to steal the keys of the fire engine."
But what really peeves me is the following:
"The immigrant youths claim that they are upset by the death of Fayçal Chaaban, a 25-year old criminal, in a Brussels prison last Sunday. Yesterday morning the authorities announced they would hold a meeting with the youths to hear their grievances about security in prison, but the meeting, which was due last night, could not take place because of the riots."
So, instead of cooperating with the willing authorities about their initial grievance, they decided to riot more. This must now be the typical Ramadan behavior in Europe.
I agree with Charles Johnson. Absolutely. The Religion of Peace.
Oh, and while we're on (or near) subject, compare and contrast.
Finally, somebody has to go and wake up former President Jimmy Carter.
