French Montana Don't Blame Paris Attacks on Muslims

French Montana says the Paris attacks were committed by crazy people who may have happened to be Muslim, but the religion is not to blame.

We got French -- who is Muslim -- leaving Playhouse in Hollywood Saturday night and when we asked him about the attacks, he offered a Muslim greeting, As-salamu alaykum, which translates to "Peace be upon you."

French, who seems a little buzzed, clearly thinks it's unfair to paint with a broad brush.
