"on the french and terrorism

oui, they're french, but that doesn't mean they're different from any of us. the main issue i wanna address here is that what the french community (as well as the european community) is dealing with right now will slowly emerge as a form of neo-terrorism. no, i'm not saying ethnic minorities are terrorists. what i'm saying is that, once the majority segregates a small group of people out of their society, the small group of people will experience a hatred so great that one day they'll resort to terrorism.

allow me to use a metaphor: imagine two rich french guys and a poor american guy who formed a country. if the french guys would only indulge in their freshly baked bread and caviar, speak french and neglect the poor american, the poor american guy will feel alienated, an outcast of society. the fact is, they're in the same country: their culture (given that this country was formed ages ago) and ideologies should be the same. they are governed by the same rules, educated in the same way and enjoy the same things. yet the american thinks differently. he immigrated from a land called america, where french fries aren't really french. he is poor and unemployed, with no one to help him, because the government is dominated by the two rich french guys who help themselves. but the american doesn't fight back, because this is also his country, and they have strict social laws everyone abides to. the american is full of anger and fustration with his life and his social status in general, so, when one of the french guys accidentally kills the american's kid, the american goes berserk and vows to kill everyone in his country who's not like him.

and that's exactly what's happening in france. years and years of social injustice towards ethnic minorities built up an enormous momentum of emotions that just overflowed. and it's not just the french, it's conservative europe in general. when i was in france last summer, people refused to speak to me in english. and for what? because the french has a higher culture than everyone else in general? that's exactly the kind of exclusiveness that fosters an invisible segregation between those who are french and those who are french but were just french two years ago. and the moment you begin to think that you are different from your countrymen because you are the majority, they will come back at you for every second you were being an ass towards them. and yes, the unfortunate result is that, if they can't express their anger in the more conventional ways (such as protests), they will rely on terrorism. just look at britain.

so what can america learn from all this happening in france then? strike the french down before they breed terrorists? no, because that's not gandhi's way of doing things. maybe what we should appreciate more is the diversity of america rather than stress on the political system of america. melting pot rather than democracy. because, as we have all seen in europe, even some of the most democratic nations have problems dealing with potential rioters and terrorists. and that problem, for europe, is not from the outside--it's from within. the most important thing america and europe can do now is to connect with its people and forge a patriotic relationship, one that appreciates the people of the nation. we need to get rid of decades of hate and wrongdoings. only then can we begin to fight the ture terrorism that lies outside our own borders."

think he basically spoke what i felt
the difference is that i will never have time to put my thoughts out so coherently
