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".

    It has nothing to do with colonialism, and more to do with the West's willingness to accept refugees from the Middle East and Africa. This is kind-hearted of the West, but carries with it a danger.

    The problem is that all cultures are not equal. In particular, a culture where you abuse women and kill people who disagree with you - such a culture is fundamentally incompatible with Western culture. Refugees can choose to assimilate and abide by Western values; indeed, this should be a prerequisite. Refusal to accept the value of the country you wish to live in should be clear cause for deportation.

    France has a particular problem, in that is has allowed non-assimilated immigrants to establish a multi-generational island culture within France. Many of the disaffected, islamistic youth in France were born and raised there. Even if France had the will, there is no way that they can deport their own, native-born citizens.

    Exactly. It amazes me the number of people that emigrate to England and can't speak a word of English.
    If you are going to live somewhere, learn the sodding language.

      I hope you are never forced to emigrate to, say, China!

        Yea, he'd have to eat his own dogfood and learn Mandarin which is completely impossible for anyone to do. That would show him!

    Atleast they're able to replace their current population.
    The pro-woman west is not able to do this.
    Also despite all the wealth, men are miserable (as designed) because they are nolonger masters of young pretty girls.

    France has a particular problem, in that is has allowed non-assimilated immigrants to establish a multi-generational island culture within France.

    Changing the time and place of your argument: People made exactly the same complaint about the influx of Ashkenazi Jews into New York City from around 1890-1930. The US even went so far as to force a ship full of Jews to return to Nazi-controlled territory in the 1930's. Nowadays, being Jewish in the US makes you a minority but not a likely source of trouble, and it's not like they had to abandon their culture either: Many of their descendants can speak at least some Yiddish, practice a similar form of Judaism, and work in Jewish-oriented businesses. And the rest of America benefited from that, because we got all of the ideas and labor they brought with them.

    Many of the disaffected, islamistic youth in France were born and raised there.

    That would suggest that if France really wanted to attack the problem, they'd figure out why these youth are disaffected and attracted to the idea of fighting a war in the Middle East. The US isn't having the same problem with kids from Dearborn, MI (where there is a large established multi-generational Arab community), so it's likely that there is something France is doing or failing to do for these youth. If I had to hazard a guess, I wouldn't be surprised if they were experiencing severe job discrimination in much the same way that African-Americans do, which leads quite naturally to many African-Americans being disaffected and engaging in serious crimes.
