I fully understand the "symbolism" they are going for and their "reasons" for this act. But if you break it down to the very basic nature of what is occurring, there is no net impact on Islam or Muslims if they just say "all you did was destroy a few books - our faith and our will is still intact and we won't stoop to your level". Instead, it is a grand insult that has spawned like protests elsewhere. Do you not see the disjoint?
Still, this is a religion that will go out and kill people who render their most beloved patron.
Same thing can be said about most americans who still blame all muslims for the crazy ideology of a few. So in essence americans and people in the middle east dont really think that much different.
(crazy ones that is)
That's fine, but I don't fall for the "they are just as bad so this is OK" argument. And who says MOST Americans blame all Muslims? You have numbers on that?
My main point there was that it is this media over-hype that has made this a bigger issue that it ever was that it seems to be a wide spread thing and can be used to fuel fervor. The counter protests are focusing on the idiots, not the rest of the people who condemn the act all together. The majority of people in the Western world are saying "this is wrong" yet the people in Muslim countries are saying "American and Christians must die". Again, there is a censored disjoint that is causing problems.
