What isn't offensive to Muslims?
Don't show the sole of your shoe. Don't handle the Qu'ran. Don't show a picture of Muhammad. Don't write the wrong kind of books. Don't offend God in movies. Don't wear skirts. Don't you dare show your face. Where is your scarf? Don't erect shrines. Wy are you a Jew? Why are you a Christian? Why are you an infidel? How dare you walk on holy sand.
Frankly I am tired of thinking about how every single event on earth involves some sort of insult to Muslims. I am tired of coddling a people who are stuck between the past and the future. I have no more patience for a civilization that continues to preach about Western evils, displaying absolute ignorance and stupidity to the fact that without the West they would have slaughtered each other off decades ago...or still under the rule of dictators. I am fed up with the fact that Muslims refuse responsibility for themselves and secretly prefer the satisfied comfortable postion of playing the victim to forces out of their control.
Another fact is that Muslims are freest in Israel and in Europe/America. These locations host an evironment that the entire Arab Spring was supposed to be about. Yet they are too stupid to realize these facts as they continue to condemn Christians and Jews in the area (and non-Sunni Muslims) and favor the religious hatred they have been indoctrinated to their entire lives under Mullahs and Clerics that worked the misdirection at the bequest of the dictators. But, oh yeah.....being a Christian or a Jew is also offensive isn't it?
A lot of things offended German Nazis, Japanese Imperialists, Soviet Communists, Phillip's Catholics, Muntzer's Protestants, John Brown's Christians, etc. But some how, we have fooled ourselves into believing that history's latest civilizational enemy can't exist. Our politicially correct weakneses won't alow us to see an enemy for what it is. Our enemy is a failed civilization in the Middle East that has finally begun to realize that Islam, as an organizational tool, is no longer viable in a modernized changed world that grew up while they were fleeing from eclipses and designing further ways to enslave their women.
Don't worry about what offends Muslims. Is it only everybody else that is supposed to be grown up?

Possibly USA policy concerning embassies should consider significantly greater firepower and military staff, more fortify embassies and an instant-ready air response and intrusion ability in any trouble-spot country.
The reason this USED to not be necessary as an attack against an embassy was considered an attack against the nation itself, so few dare even think of doing so. But they rely on whimpy ass responses such as exactly what Obama did. Its all just politics to him for which the struggle is what the best politically correct verbal statement to make.
The film maker fully knows when he is making the movie that it is an utter provocation and he knows what the reaction will be.. rational or not. He knows that people of faith will not react rationally when their faith is challenged.. he knows that in making this movie something will happen.. just as the guy going into the theatre knows what the reaction of the people will be. THAT is the key to all this... the film maker and the guy in the theatre both know what the reaction is going to be.. from empirical evidence... we know in the west, that if you insult Islam then the reaction among some Muslims will be violent.
Now do I like the fact that we have to tiptoe around Muslims .. HELLLL no, but I also would rather tiptoe around Muslims than have riots and mass deaths. Especially when I know that the radical aspects of Islam use such provocations to gain and maintain their hold on the population. Basically such provocations push more and more people towards the radical part of Islam.. and that is exactly what we dont want.. and exactly what the movie maker and his followers do want.
In the end of the day we have to share this planet with Muslims... so why in the hell go out of our way to make enemies of them by provoking them? And why allow radicals in religions to dictate our policies and actions? I say no.. hell no to radicals regardless of religion.
