Arab immigrants in France……..Matter of Suffering and Integration

In 27th of October, 2005, riots caused by the Arab and Black minorities spread rapidly in France, country of freedom and equality. In one of Paris suburbs, where mostly Arabs live, two teenagers were killed during a police sweep. The wave of riots spread increasingly in the whole country causing great deal of destruction. French citizens saw their cars burned and their national property destroyed.

Ali Saad Al-Moussa argues that Arabs carry their culture in their bags when they immigrate to western countries (Memri). Hence, the differences in traditions and ways of thinking make a gap between the minorities and the...
