Riots in France

Quite a few news reports are claiming that France's "Equality for all" principle is to blame for the riots. Sample this from one such report:

The founding myth of the Republic that promises equality for all, says historian and sociologist Laurent Mucchielli, "is very beautiful - but it is abstract and today it blinds us and turns us into hypocrites."

I only hope that France realises "Equality for all" isnt equivalent to "We are all the same".
