Video: Reza Aslan, the Iranian author and intellectual who is a Consulting Editor for Interlitq, states that France has a poor record of “multiculturalism:”
Reza Aslan states: “There is a civil war taking place in Europe, The Europeans don’t know who they are anymore. They’re fighting to figure out who they are. They’re looking around. The place doesn’t look like it did 50 years ago. There are black faces, and brown faces, Asian people. And particularly in France, an aggressively secularizing country that has never really tolerated multiculturalism or the kind of cultural religious diversity that is the hallmark of the United States. You can see how that would create the kinds of tensions that would bubble up occasionally into acts of violence on both sides. We have seen a lot of anti-Muslim violence in Europe as well as Muslim violence against Europeans.”
