It's not us, honest 

We're not rioting.
And certainly not in France.
And we're definitely not Muslims.
You must be thinking about some other people, doing something else, in some other country.

The riots, described as France's worst since May 1968, have been linked to the threat of radical Islam. But both descriptions are misleading. The violent unrest is better compared to the riots that burnt down African-American ghettos across the United States in the 1960s.
"It is nothing to do with radical Islam or even Muslims," says Olivier Roy, research director at the French National Centre for Scientific Research and one of the world's leading authorities on political Islam.

That's a relief. I knew it was the Catholics all the time. Go to this clip and hear them calling out "Hail Mary".
