    He's obviously not, but whenever this gets raised the implication is that there is something wrong with being an Arab-American or a Muslim.

    Is there something wrong with being a muslim in the US?

    Its a international incident and America has many interests in the ME both financial and military, you honestly want them to throw that away to defend some guys moronic video? The American gov spoke out against the attacks and have vowed to bring those responsible to justice while at the same time have distanced themselves from the video. Would you prefer they took credit for the video?
    I have to agree. I don't see what else they can do without making matters worse. And I don't think it says or does anything to free speech. They have to use finesse in an international incident like this. As long as they do try to get some of the people who were truly responsible for the killings.

    but your an isolationist so you would say that, America however is not.

    This what I would have liked to see. A very hands off, but, firm discourse and no more.

    Prepare for this type of response: I'm xenophobic/racist. I'll say xenophobic/racist things but don't call me xenophobic/racist I'll complain that you're calling me xenophobic/racist.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    I doubt you will find many Americans who would not agree on this specific issue. The people who are losing their mind in blind rage, over a freaking film, are acting infantile.

    Not at all. There are many peace loving Muslims everywhere.

    Only when religious fanaticism takes over some of these people ... it's particularly virulent.

    That's not what she asked you. You claimed Obama was a Muslim. Now, say for arguments' sake you were right. So the **** what if he was?

    Only when radical Islam is offended comes the flood of apologies. That's Obama's way, but everybody knows that by now, so it's no surprise really.
    This piece of...whatever it is has existed since 1987. Where was Bush's outrage? Will Romney be appropriately outraged by a quarter century old artwork?
