    I think it was Karzai making it an issue. And our media giving air time to a guy with 12 followers

    Was it because he made a show trial and recorded it for TV or simply because he's American?

    Right, you brought up a situation you said would illicit a response from me, and that the people verbally attacking my daughter would be responsible for such. In asking such a question, in the present circumstances, you assume that the response of violence is the only one possible, and that the person responding held no choice in how they responded.

    I have a choice to attack a little girl, or not, and can just as easily verbally correct them or call their mothers. Making me solely responsible for how I go about doing so

    why do you continue to think anyone that disagrees with you is antiislamic? Maybe they just disagree with your dislike of free speech, which you already openly supported curtailing

    If they do, shouldn't we blame the murderers? I mean after all, if not for their actions no one would think to seek out notoriety that way.

    Maybe a lot more than this - I wonder why didn't Karzai or anyone else make a similar issue about any of the other burnings?

    As for the media - for whatever reason Pastor Jones may have been courted by the press whereas burnings elsewhere were ignored. I'm just curious why such prominence and reaction to this - just the latest in a series - event caused the strongest reaction.

    Point is you would find what I was doing towards your daughter wrong. Regardless of your response. You would know that regardless of the right to do so it was wrong. That is exactly why I don't understand your refusal to simply condemn Jones as wrong without qualifying it every time.

    Their actions were not in any way equal, and as such deserve completely different responses.
