    I understand that, but you can't pretend that these are just random folks ticked off at the US and have nothing else in common. Their actions are rooted in a religious belief that not only condones violent responses to language, behavior and beliefs they object to, but it encourages such violence.

    They kill people in the name of Islam and I'm sick and tired of people in this country, especially the news media, looking for scape goats and doing everything in their power to avoid that reality. We live in a country where freedom of speech and freedom of expression are cherished and celebrated... You people (you know who you are) need to stop being politically correct cowards and start acting like Americans. That means calling a spade, a spade, and not attacking and alienating people who are only exercising their rights as human beings, to express their thoughts and beliefs freely.

    ENOUGH

    Frankly, we have been paying them respect for decades, in spite of all the crap they cause. The lack of mutual respect is in their court.

    Dream on. You're caught in the propoganda of your faith. Christ was supposedly decended from Issac's line (you know David?). The two brothers had different covenants with God. Ishmael's included being a warrior for he bristled at the restrictions of the basic tenets, especially that do not murder part.

    Christ was not ever a muslim.

    Not only that, but at least Christianity hasn't sat out the last seven centuries of history. You're welcome to worship however you want, but don't go trying to push the nonsense that Muhammed wasn't a warlord.

    "In light of the events of the last two days, the Brotherhood has decided to participate only in a symbolic protest in Tahrir Square, so that there is no more destruction to property, or injuries, or deaths, as has happened in the past," the group's secretary general Mahmud Hussein said in a statement."

    You're asking for proof when someone claims to respect others?

    You can't understand the concept of mutual respect between nations and cultures?
