The religious and cultural tensions the West faces are "payback" for slavery and colonialism, a Chinese state-run newspaper said Tuesday in the wake of the Islamist attack on Charlie Hebdo magazine.

The editorial in the Global Times newspaper — which often takes a nationalistic tone — dismissed the weekend's huge marches in Paris and elsewhere as "painkillers" that cannot halt the intensifying "clash of civilizations".

    Getting rid of oil dependence will go a long way to rip the financing of states that perhaps should not have much funding. And it will force some to establish meritocracy or perish. Most of all it will remove a good reason to be in these conflict regions at all and benefit the global climate.

    It can also be an effect of that Islam get in conflict easily with their surroundings. Combine that with easier transport and communication and the conflict spreads along with it. Many immigrants in west isn't assimilated but rather separate societies which may then come in conflict with the host country.
