Bit of a random thought, but I saw something on FB where someone actually broke down the numbers as far as these protests go, and how only 9,000 people actually came out in protest throughout the Muslim countries. To me stuff like that is completely missing the point when diagnosing the issue. The problem isn't the number of people coming out of their houses, it's the deaths that typically are the result of these protests.
The attitude of the 'silent majority', to use a Musharraf-ism, is what really needs to change. There's simply not enough condemnation of this type of behavior. The majority of us are just too understanding of the rage following any such incident, and as a result someone gets killed over something completely ridiculous. I mean, I'll take a ****'s word that ****s will be ****s, but ultimately society has to take some responsibility, because to me if stuff is like this was deemed intolerable by the people it'd eventually get wiped out.
Completely off-topic, but I feel there's a warning in here somewhere for us Americans by the way about letting the jingoists take over.
Can't decide on a signature? Why not Zoidberg?
