I don't know if you're defending the actions of these people (I can hardly imagine), but I don't understand why people still defend Islamic protests at ALL. Back when that Dutch cartoonist drew an offensive picture of Mohammed, Christians throughout the Middle East and Africa were being killed, churches burned.

The entire region is laced with (or at least completely tolerant of) hateful, backwards savages. These "you made fun of me" protests are a way to stir up hatred and Anti-Western sentiment, and maybe get to kill a few non-believers.

I'm pretty sure he's not trying to defend them, just addressing the "this is not normal" part of the GGP.

FWIW, the West has similar savages, but they operate through a centralized military organization.
