It seems that not only Muslims extremist are on this revolt but whole countries of Muslims in the Arab world that want to kíll Americans because of that video and so many people in their countries, like Egypt and Libya have died already. How come Muslims in the West are not protesting and burning buildings and shooting AK47 in the air? What do Muslims in those countries think about when Muslims in the USA are not reacting in the same manner?
Let me see if I get this straight...
We engage in proxy wars and actively seek the overthrow of sovereign leaders. Impose central banks that indebt the populations. Indiscriminately bomb men, women and children through drone strikes. We destabilize current infrastructure and impose harsh sanctions that greatly impact the standards of living. All to acquire natural resources and secure the Federal Reserve note as the international standard.
...but none of these transgressions could be responsible for the discontent in the Islamic world... and instead a shoddily produced video overdubbing is??? This stretches credulity to its breaking point.
The notion that the backlash we are experiencing is due to a youtube video is utterly ridiculous. The acknowledgment that the uprisings are only occurring in those places where the meddling of the US is not welcome proves this isn't the case.
I think that the Muslims living in the USA have a better understanding about how US society works. For someone who lives in Egypt, that video is "Blasphemy and an insult against my culture that comes from USA". While for a Muslim living in the USA it is "Blasphemy and an insult against my culture that comes from a bunch of idiot extremists who happen to live in the same country as I do".
You see how the first may provoke hate against innocent people while the second probably doesn't?
The problem is that people abroad often do not understand how American society views freedom of speech to be more valuable than the dignity of outlandish religion. People who live in the USA have a way better understanding of US mentality and often share it.
Perhaps. I'm not certain it was the catalyst in all the cases of rebellion we've seen, but if it is, then that is unfortunate. The people demonstrating in the majority of countries we see have many legitimate reasons to be up in arms, demanding an end to US interference. That they would choose to rally under this cause only serves to detract from the all too real grievances they are languishing under. One has to wonder if the real purpose of the video was to elicit such a response in a manner of controlled burn, using your analogy, in an effort to maintain an animosity between the west and the middle east, and keep the fires of war stoked.
That is the difference between a reason and an inducement. What you describe is like a dry forest. The video was the one spark that set it on fire. The forest never burns because someone threw away a cigarette. The forest burns because it is dry. Yet, the person who threw the spark will be arrested for arson. The only difference between natural disasters and politics is that in politics, someone is actually responsible for the dryness.
And I am not talking about those. I am talking about the huge revolt that is going on right now against USA interest in the middle east and huge gatherings of protest because of a YouTube video. Basically whole middle east countries against the USA now and not just the extremist. http://funadvice.com/r/169t0olictd
I don't know about the US or their home countries but I do know that hundreds, maybe thousands started a riot in Australia. It was a disgrace and I'm ashamed to call anyone who starts a dangerous riot, severely injures police officers and destroys public property, an Australian citizen.
actually barely any of them are. there just like everyone else. some humans are cruel but most are descent.
A lot of Americans are furious over the Killing of a human being over a MOVIE....
Yes I know about it. But still, not EVERYONE wants to kill us.
Not all Muslims are extremist psychos.
Not everyone, no.
