Muslims living in France often bemoan the treatment they are receiving from native Frenchmen and women. They do not feel that they are being properly respected. Often they are scorned and insulted in public.
As always happens with reputation, the bad behavior of the few compromises the reputation of the many.
Many French Muslims are fighting a culture war against France. If Muslims in France want to receive better treatment they might start doing unto others as they would have others do unto them. If they cannot respect local customs they are not going to receive respect in return.
Witness a recent incident in Toulon, in the South of France. A group of French people was attacked by a group of Muslims because two women were dressed immodestly—that is, they were bicycling wearing shorts.
The Daily Mail reports this instance of the arrival of Islamist morality police in France:
Two families have come under a violent attack while cycling in southern France, after teenagers insulted two females for wearing sports gear.
The attack, in the port town of Toulon, which French prosecutors said was carried out by a group of youths from a housing estate has sparked claims that the Mediterranean town was an example of areas in France falling victim to Islamist ‘morality police’.
The two couples were cycling and roller-blading with their three children and a friend on Sunday afternoon when the ‘incredibly violent’ attack took place.
While passing the Cité des Oeillets, an estate to the east of the town, the group of teenagers began insulting the women for wearing the cycling clothing, shouting ‘Dirty whore, get naked’.
