    The reaction of fanatics is never rational. The reaction of the American-Israeli to Islam is not rational.. him making this movie is not rational.. people funding such a movie is not rational. People reacting in such a way is not rational.. but we are talking about religion and fanatics, so anything they do is NOT RATIONAL! regardless of who we are talking about. Is insulting 1 billion peoples beliefs rational?

    Typical Europan response to a fear that Americans don't want to be there anymore.......

    America took down the Spanish Empire during our time of isolationalism.

    America surpassed the british Empire as the number one economy on earth in the 1890s during our time of isolationalism.

    America ventured out to deal with European children during World War I to prevent the allies from losing and then went right back into isolationalism after proving to be the most powerful nation on earth.

    We did all this through our isolationalism - political, social, and economic isolationalism.



    But Europeans wouldn't allow an isolated America would they? After proving to emerge out of our isolationalism to deal with more European children as the most powerful nation in history, we had to stay in your wrecked world. Before long we were dealing with more European children during the Cold War. Of course, in the 1990s we were still dealing with European children and their knack for genocide on the Europen continent with the former Yugoslavia.

    So you see.....we became great through our isolationalism when we didn't have to continually react to European instigated disasters at the expense of American lives. Underneath the anti-American propaganda preached at European institutions and universities, Europeans aren't dumb. They know that an isolated America means a world in European hands and that this means disaster is always around the corner. You are deadly to yourselves and need a daddy protectorate.

    Make no mistake.....we have proved that we can isolate and become great while the rest of you spiral straight to hell. The truth is that none of you is worth our blood. You never were. We have just been stuck with putting out your fires that always threaten to consume us all. Your continued self-designed path to hell always threatens to drag the rest of us with you.

    But today our problem is less European and more Middle Eastern. But lets not pretend anymore. Our problem is Muslim. We protect their dictators and we are hated and murdered by Muslims for it. We get rid of their dictators and support their revolutions and we are hated and murdered for it. A book gets burned and Americans are murdered for it. And all Europeans can do is talk about how America deserves it. Never mind that we didn't start two World Wars, a Cold War and wreck the world through brutal soul killing colonialism. We merely inherited your overwhelming messes while making an extreme few along the way. But by all means..."America deserves it."

    Hillary Clinton just spoke and told the world that for Americans, the fact this occurred on September 11, it is just further proof that our mission to bring a better world isn't finished. She refrained from more truth. September 11 has become a date for Muslims to celebrate Islam.

    We might one day get a handle on this that throughout the world, including the US and Israel, there are religious extremists and that the actions of the zealots will not be condoned by any government. There are extremists and zealots who are Muslim, Jew, Christian, etc.

    Here it seems that Jewish and Christian religious fanatics purposely flamed the fires of hate and Islamists responded. All three are equally at fault.

    Most of the good people of the world, good Muslims, good Christians, good Jews, etc. are caught in between the hatred of religious fanatics.

    It could be, depending on belief. All theists are mostly crazy to varying degrees, I'm not going to tread carefully because theists may get their feelings hurt. Hurt feelings does not excuse violent response, and me hurting someone's feelings in no way shape or form makes me responsible for their irrational response.
