Knock me over with a feather. Right-wing fanatics find a Muslim Batman just too much to bear. I don’t have much to add other takedowns of this insipid argument except to point out that Muslims weren’t behind the French riots this fall. And, yes, Mr. Huston, neo-Nazis are part of what is ‘really going on in France’–attacks on soldiers’ graves, a Nazi sympathizer in Jean-Marie Le Pen, and an assassination attempt on Jacques Chirac.
Riots are happening across Europe, including when a dictator is elected. And to say that the riots are based on religion is to badly misread what’s happening in Europe.
