    What have I avoided other than to cite quotes?

    Are you talking about events in the U.S. or the ME?

    So the pastor has the freedom of speech to burn books, but we don't have the freedom to criticize him for burning books?

    Not blindly no but you bend over and take it like the rest of us.

    You are 100% wrong.

    I have already posted a link proving that the police arrested hundreds of people (ie truckloads) who had not committed any crime and they did it to thwart their ability to protest

    So you were referring to the ME? How long do you believe civil unrest has been going on in the ME?
    You've given a opening to the question of 'Should we as part of an international community intervene in Syria?'

    From what I understand the police arrested him for no disclosed reason and that they would be announcing that reason at a later time. Sounds like they arrested him and will be making up a reason later.
    Meanwhile the hazmat team makes off with the "hazardous substances" and the BBQ grill to an undisclosed location for a campfire & some smores.

    Is it called freedom when a library removes certain books from their shelves?
