What is your first thought when you see something offensive? It's probably not to get together with a few dozen of your closest friends and burn stuff. As has been the case in similar incidents, the ease of the transition to violence here all but suggests a rampage waiting for an excuse.
Then comes the collective punishment. "Muslim villagers burn houses of Christian family Upper Egypt," from Al Masry Al Youm, December 30:
Dozens of residents of the village of Baheeg in Assiut, Upper Egypt, burnt three houses owned by a Christian family after a Christian villager allegedly published cartoons mocking Islam on his Facebook account.
Cartoon alleged to offend Islam = three houses on fire. This mindset threatens a future of poverty and instability for Egypt, as no one is going to invest in a country where assets can be destroyed in a fit of rage at the drop of a hat.
There can be no prosperous society without stability, and no stability without a sense of priorities and self control on the individual, familial, and societal level. Stable self-government, as Egypt is said to want, depends on the government of the self.
A number of Muslim students attacked their Coptic classmate for posting the cartoons, a Muslim student told Al-Masry Al-Youm.
The Muslim students attacked the Coptic student on Thursday at Monqebad Secondary School in Assiut. Eyewitnesses said the military intervened to break up the fight and escorted the Coptic youth and his family away from the village. Later, Muslim villagers set fire to the familys houses.
Firefighters extinguished the blaze and armed forces and police imposed a security cordon around the site of the incident.
Major General Mohamed Ibrahim, director of security in Assiut, said security forces are attempting to coordinate with Muslim clerics to calm citizens and contain the situation....
The fact that it takes this much to settle the situation speaks volumes.
Meanwhile, the heffer at the State Dept slobbers on her saudi-flavored salt lick...
Matthew 16:25 (NASB), Jesus Christ
For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it; but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it.
Dear God, minimize the suffering of the faithful under physical attack.
Rule of thumb - If you have to protect your god he/she/it is not a god. I guess that says a lot about allah. If he/she/it is a deity then he/she/it would not need protecting from a cartoon. After all, if your deity requires your protection from scribbles on a paper, then how is he/she/it going to protect YOU from matters of greater substance? Says a lot about allah. Goodness - he/she/it cannot even rouse up a simple gust of wind in fury at not spelling it’s name with a capital letter as the first letter! Anyways, says a lot about allah.

Actually this mindset has been threatening the stability of the planet for over 2 decades.
Every Christian should instinctively know that mohammed is a servant of satan, as are all muslims, wittingly or unwittingly.
Islam should be banned in the West & attacked on every front. It is a subversive cult determined to destroy our civilization.
Jimmy Carter deserves a lot of credit for the current bad situation re. islam. If he had sent 800 aircraft over Iran in 1979, instead of 8 vulnerable helos, we might have stopped the jihad before it got started. But his cowardly, weak attempt to rescue the hostages only encouraged the radicals.
I have ZERO respect for Carter, & almost none for Obama. The only thing that separates the 2 fools is 444 days.
For 1400 or so years...
Please run for President of the US and the world ;)
That means that there are substantially more Christians in Egypt than Jews in Israel, yet politicians in the U.S. love to boast of their devotion to Israel, although the U.S. is overwhelmingly Christian. No politicians even on the Right are dedicated to the interests of our Christian brethren in the Middle East and elsewhere, and most American Jews support a Commie American regime which is devoted to the destruction of our Republic. What is wrong with this picture?
Demand that so-called "conservative" politicians take a stand on behalf of Christianity in the world. If American Jews do not care about the survival of the Republic which has given their people the greatest sanctuary in history, why should America sacrifice for the survival of the "Jewish state"?

Because everything we have that is good came from The God of Israel. Nutshell answer.
Don Morris writes at Doc's Talk (thanks to Janet Levy): ...As long as the Muslim population remains around 1% of any given country they will be regarded as a peace-loving minority and not as a threat to anyone. In fact, they may be featured in articles and films, stereotyped for their colorful uniqueness:
United States -- Muslim 1.0%
Australia -- Muslim 1.5%
Canada -- Muslim 1.9%
China -- Muslim 1%-2%
Italy -- Muslim 1.5%
Norway -- Muslim 1.8%
At 2% and 3% they begin to proselytize from other ethnic minorities and disaffected groups with major recruiting from the jails and among street gangs:
Denmark -- Muslim 2%
Germany -- Muslim 3.7%
United Kingdom -- Muslim 2. 7%
Spain -- Muslim 4%
Thailand -- Muslim 4.6%
From 5% on they exercise an inordinate influence in proportion to their percentage of the population.
They will push for the introduction of halaal (clean by Islamic standards) food, thereby securing food preparation jobs for Muslims. They will increase pressure on supermarket chains to feature it on their shelves -- along with threats for failure to comply. (United States).
France -- Muslim 8%
Philippines -- Muslim 5%
Sweden -- Muslim 5%
Switzerland -- Muslim 4.3%
The Netherlands -- Muslim 5.5%
Trinidad & Tobago -- Muslim 5.8%
At this point, they will work to get the ruling government to allow them to rule themselves under Sharia, the Islamic Law. The ultimate goal of Islam is not to convert the world but to establish Sharia law over the entire world.
When Muslims reach 10% of the population, they will increase lawlessness as a means of complaint about their conditions (Paris -- car-burnings). Any non-Muslim action that offends Islam will result in uprisings and threats (Amsterdam -- Mohammed cartoons).
Guyana -- Muslim 10%
India -- Muslim 13.4%
Israel -- Muslim 16%
Kenya -- Muslim 10%
Russia -- Muslim 10-15%
After reaching 20% expect hair-trigger rioting, jihad militia formations, sporadic killings and church and synagogue burning:
Ethiopia -- Muslim 32.8%
At 40% you will find widespread massacres, chronic terror attacks and ongoing militia warfare:
Bosnia -- Muslim 40%
Chad -- Muslim 53.1%
Lebanon -- Muslim 59.7%
From 60% you may expect unfettered persecution of non-believers and other religions, sporadic ethnic cleansing (genocide), use of Sharia Law as a weapon and Jizya, the tax placed on infidels:
Albania -- Muslim 70%
Malaysia -- Muslim 60.4%
Qatar -- Muslim 77.5%
Sudan -- Muslim 70%
After 80% expect State run ethnic cleansing and genocide:
Bangladesh -- Muslim 83%
Egypt -- Muslim 90%
Gaza -- Muslim 98.7%
Indonesia -- Muslim 86.1%
Iran -- Muslim 98%
Iraq -- Muslim 97%
Jordan -- Muslim 92%
Morocco -- Muslim 98.7%
Pakistan -- Muslim 97%
Palestine -- Muslim 99%
Syria -- Muslim 90%
Tajikistan -- Muslim 90%
Turkey -- Muslim 99.8%
United Arab Emirates -- Muslim 96%
100% will usher in the peace of "Dar-es-Salaam" -- the Islamic House of Peace -- there's supposed to be peace because everybody is a Muslim:
Afghanistan -- Muslim 100%
Saudi Arabia -- Muslim 100%
Somalia -- Muslim 100%
Yemen -- Muslim 99.9%
Of course, that's not the case. To satisfy their blood lust, Muslims then start killing each other for a variety of reasons.
"Before I was nine I had learned the basic canon of Arab life. It was me against my brother; me and my brother against our father; my family against my cousins and the clan; the clan against the tribe; and the tribe against the world. And all of us against the infidel. -- Leon Uris, "The Haj"...
Adapted from Dr. Peter Hammond's book: Slavery, Terrorism and Islam: The Historical Roots and Contemporary Threat
Then why do American Jews not overwhelmingly support conservative candidates? Why do they in fact overwhelmingly back Commies like 0bama? Because the only “religion” of most American Jews is in fact socialism, nutshell
Could there be a more succinct summation? I think not.
