Interesting Observation

Summary:

        Are the non-Muslim French almost as angry as the Muslims?

At Length:

        In Mark Steyn's Molotov Mailbos, a "John Foy" of "Calgary, Alberta" writes:
        The members of the [Parisian Rugby] club and their friends and wives cut across socio-economic and cultural boundaries and agreed on very little except two things: George Bush is a cowboy (not always said with contempt) and that Muslims living in France could hardly be called French.  The open contempt of the mainstream French for their Muslim "countrymen" who shared none of the traditional French values was striking.  I cannot help but feel that this current battle might rage for a while, as the middle class is spoiling for a fight even more than rioters.  The single most common reason I heard from Frenchmen for avoiding the Iraq war was fear of the Islamic street exploding in Paris - but this sentiment was accompanied by great deal of frustration (spoken and unspoken) about being held hostage by this minority.
