    ANKARA, Nov 7 (AFP) - Turkish prime minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan has linked the ban on the wearing of Muslim head scarves in French schools to the unrest inflaming poor suburbs of French cities, according to a press report Monday.

    In an interview with Milliyet newspaper, Erdogan said "the process begun in France in the schools" was one explanation for the worsening violence marked by the destruction of thousands of vehicles, vandalism of schools and attacks on police stations.

    Erdogan, who became involved in Turkish politics through the now-disbanded Islamist National Salvation Party and in 1999 was jailed for four months on a charge of inciting religious hatred, said the law banning the hijab in
    schools had contributed to migrants' sense of exclusion and "stirred up" the violence.

    "We have always defended the alliance of civilisations (between the Islamic world and the West) and to demonstrate how the accession of Turkey to the European Union was important in this respect. But some did not want to understand, above all the French," Erdogan said.

    Since the troubles broke out in Paris on October 27, more than 5,000 vehicles have been set on fire and police have made more than 1,000 arrests.

    Ok. So the French, the great bastion of multiculturism that they are, banned headscarves. So in order to resolve that you:

    a) complain to your representative that this is against your freedoms
    b) protest that your religious freedoms should not be oppressed
    c) burn about 2000 cars, kill anyone that gets in your way, cause general chaos and instill fear into the populace. What were we fighting for again? Oh yea something about jihad.
