    The actions of a handful of Muslims do not represent everyone else in those countries.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    Sadly, the 1% radical Christians make the 99$ look bad. Most Christians live what they preach and are very tolerant. The same is true for Muslims. The 1% make the rest look bad. I know some very loving people of all religions and even those who do not subscribe to religion.

    And here is a better description of what happened around this call:


    Mr. Morsi initially issued only a mild rebuke of the rioters — and on Facebook — while his movement, the Muslim Brotherhood, called for more protests. And though the Egyptian police coordinated with American officials, Mr. Morsi waited 24 hours before issuing his statement against the militants who stormed the embassy.

    But even as demonstrations continued, the official tone changed abruptly after a blunt phone call to Mr. Morsi from President Obama, who warned that relations would be jeopardized if Egyptian authorities failed to protect American diplomats and stand more firmly against anti-American attacks.

    The following day, searching for a middle ground, Mr. Morsi appeared on national television, telling Egyptians it was their “religious duty to protect our guests and those who come to us from outside our nation,” including their embassies, and businesses. “I know that the people attacking the embassies do not represent any of us. We all have to cooperate to express opinions while maintaining our principles, our correct peaceful ways that the whole world accepts,” he said.

    linkypoo...
    Relationships will be jeopardized? That's all you got for foreign policy?

    Wake up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    As I see it, there have been two types of protests. Some of the pretests have been rather peaceful demonstrations. As in Libya, for example, these are people who are finally experiensing being able to protest without fear of government killing them for it. THey were demonstrating their new right of speech. Sadly, thee are bad apples in every bunch. As for the attacks on the embacies and the killing of our Americans, I think the more radical and terrorist part of these groups took it too far or even planned the violence using the protests as a back drop. Of course, this is how I see it, but time will tell once we learn more.

    I assume it does. Obama seems determined to deal with these terrorists without going to war or stirring up any more Anti-American feelings. I know he talked about going after those who killed Amassadar Stephens and the other three Americans in Libya, but he has been in persute of terrorists who have attacked US citizens all along.
