19. many a reason. colonialism is part of our heritage...
...and has left traces of resentment in african/asian people.

you are right - the failures in the big city plannings are now recognized by architects and engineers - and the architectural monsters in the popular neighborhoods are the material embodiment of psychological ghettoes.

and there are economic, social and cultural reasons entangled.
the religious ones you quote - see, Europe has always been a crossroad for different cultures and religions.
if there are religious tensions, they are instrumental, they give alibies to those who feel unrest for economic/social reasons probably.

i remember "Hate", the movie by M.Kassovitz. a nice portrait of the madness in such explosion of violence.
