Quote of the Day

A Muslim world that can take to the streets, as far away as Jakarta, in protest against a vulgar film depiction of the Prophet Muhammad--yet barely call up a crowd on behalf of a Syrian population that has endured unspeakable hell at the hands of the dictator Bashar al-Assad--is in need of self-criticism and repair. We do these societies no favor if we leave them to the illusion that they can pass through the gates of the modern world carrying those ruinous ideas. -- Fouad Ajami

My sense from this side of the planet is that the muslim street is being whipped into these frenzys on demand by a small group of "community organizer" types, in the model of Sharpton and Jackson, et. al. We don't really need to have it out with all the muslims, just the self-interested rabble rousers.
