Legitimately mad. The problem is that because of American exceptionalism (a la the First Amendment) and religious intolerance (i.e. anti-Islam since 2001), many simply refuse to understand why they are mad. Little quick background from my having studied both Catholicism (/early Christianity) and Islam: when Christianity started gaining traction in Europe, Christians would use pictures, art, symbols and such to help promote the religion and instill faith in the populace. The culture of Islam had the exact opposite reaction: to depict Muhammad or God is to do a great evil. They're essentially concerned with idolatry (about which I think the Catholic Church had to hold a council about to make sure its artistic culture wasn't allowing either). The Shia sect of Islam is more OK with it, but most orthodox Sunnis get really pissed about it.

As far as using it as an excuse, it basically goes along the lines of leaders using fear/hatred to move a populace. Was the Bush administration really upset about 9/11 or did they just use it as cover to invade the Middle East?

not all cultures / societies are equal.


for them to get upset over a video might seem childish and crazy to us. but it insults them on a completely different level, of which most of us probably can't understand.


I don't know what I am saying.


but people should all just be nice. we all know their culture and society and religious views yet people still do that kinda shit. its like poking a really angry dog with a sharp stick. should the dog be angry in the first place? idk. should we poke it with a stick repeatedly? no. should the angry dog then try to kill the poker, (real dog yes but metaphors guys) no.


that was a terrible metaphor. what am i saying

I understand why they were upset after someone created a less than flattering image of their god, but I don't see that as enough of a motivation to attack the embassy. I would be surprised if that was the sole motivation. Also, the US government anticipated there would be trouble, enough so, that they made the US ambassador who died leave the country. He ended up sneaking back in on some Greek ship unfortunately...

Islam is only 1400 years old which, for a religion, is the rebellious teen years. When Christianity was 1400 years old we had the Crusades and inquisition.
