Not on the front page, though. In the International section.
Although we learn elsewhere (from Amir Taheri) that the rioters are shouting "God is great!" as they set fire to everything in sight in twenty French cities, nowhere in the New York Times piece do we encounter the word "Muslim."
But we do learn that
...[t]he continuing unrest appears to be fueled less by perceived police brutality than by the frustration of young men who have no work and see little hope for the future.
One would like more first-hand reporting, of course, to be certain of one's first impression that, it appears, mysteriously absent from the rioting are those non-Muslim elements of the population that despair for their futures.
Note: Just to be perfectly clear: I am not saying that all Muslims are rioting in these communities, still less that most Muslims in any community are inclined to riot. But it is important for anyone seriously interested in understanding what is happening now in Europe to openly acknowledge that these riots, in part, derive from attitudes and beliefs of a portion of the Muslim population. How large is this group? I don't know. None of us can know until we begin openly to discuss the issue. If it turns out that the "bad" ones are a tiny part of the population, who can be easily isolated and neutralized by (one hopes) rational arguments and a positive counter-example -- then that is very good news indeed.
