The movie itself may be insulting enought, but I think more importantly they, and a lot of people in other regions, just hate americans.

not really, the movie was just an excuse and for some extremist group any suitable excuse is good enough to launch their pre-planned response (same goes for a governmental response or any other organization that plans their course of action in advance) - in the meantime they make sure to mobilize as much supporters as possible (which may range from allies to ordinary gullible citizens) so that the impact of their action increases in magnitude


if that were the case here in u.s.a. we would all be dead

nope, but such a scenario would come in real handy for the government to test their riot-control preparedness, which means they might be just waiting for a suitable excuse to fill-up their fema camps & whatnot


The movie itself may be insulting enought,

the movie (called 'innocence of muslims', available on youtube) is pretty silly, boring, amateurish and propagandist, depicting jews as noble/bold/victims, christians as victims, muslims as extremists, their prophet as: 'insert any pejorative term' - its so bad that it shouldn't be able to impress anyone, though its messages or critiques are somewhat based on islamic (holy) scriptures

it could be generally said that there are many problematic statements within those scriptures (as well as within the other 2 mentioned religions), but this kind of criticizing (via a malicious parody) is simply an incompetent/inadequate/pointless way to address such issues


they, and a lot of people in other regions, just hate americans.

if they do then they are misguided, since its not the americans (meaning: the general public) which cause their problems, the primary culprits are:
- the american government (corrupt high-level officials taking the term 'foreign affairs' too far), playing the role of the 'world sheriff'
- their own governments (playing along with the foreign interests), forgetting their obligations towards their own citizens
- multinational corporations (financing and lobbying the intrusion), abusing their power
- various organizations and individuals interested in fueling the religious or anti-religious hatred
- local religious intolerance (which can't handle other opinions in a civilized way)
- local extremists (making things even worse than they already are)
...
secondary culprits would be:
- american citizens - for not punishing their own government on the elections, for being gullible, repeating the past mistakes
- other citizens - same as above
...

hey!
Guys,arabs do not hate americans,you should KNOW MORE about the middle east by making PERSONAL researches and reading some NEUTRAL,SINCERE SCHOLARS' opinions about Islam and Middle EAST,but If you listen to THE MEDIA,you will definitely be MISLEADEAD.
After all,The person who lit this spark of violence,anger is an Israeli who produced the film,and I think that you already know about the conflicts between arab and Israeli people.
Anyone will get hurt if someone else attacks his own religion,but anyway,all this stuff is a political trick,mess,or I don't know....
If people can't make peace in the real world,we WILL make it here in sb-innovation. :)
peace guys :)

It's true, but you won't be dead in the USA,
I assume Arab immigrants in the USA have a slightly better brain and won't kill/destroy the country or the people they are living in/with.
Most of those Arab, when they return tell us (the locals) about glorious America and the neatness tidiness ..etc

I think your post comes from what I may address below.


The movie itself may be insulting enought

The movie didn't even reach the insulting level,
most of whom I know forgot about the insults and started wondering about how bad this movie is pulled off,
When I watched it I started wondering which software it was made by? Free Movie maker?, is that background a PNG or a JPG ??

The problem lies in people who protest just for the protest (not to mention the allegations by Morsi Of Egypt about paid-protesters), they remember Denmark's cartoons and started comparing this incident to the old one:
'It's the "west" striking again with a WHOLE movie, we must do something'
then start protesting.

It's really unfortunate that these protestors didn't know that the movie isn't existent, only a 13min trailer is published.

About killing the US Ambassador, this isn't right, afaik, an Islamic teaching prohibits killing peaceful presence like Embassies, and other citizens within the islamic country with different or no religious,
but this is another story (the barbaric/misunderstood application of Islam).

Anyway, what would you really expect from Libyans? they're armed people, they've been under violent reign for decades and have got ridden of it by violence,
do you expect them to have PhDs in Human Fields and discuss things quietly with a cup of hot tea with an AMERICAN (concentration on American) Ambassador (or even know what that even means?) ??

tl;dr version: education plays an important role in decisions, thanks to the US' wars/puppets, not all ME countries are receiving proper education.


but I think more importantly they, and a lot of people in other regions, just hate americans.


Guys,arabs do not hate americans

Actually, I live in the what so called middle east, a lot of people hate Americans,

Lets start with some definitions:

*'America' -the word sparks the following thoughts to MOST Arab:
War,
Money Bag/Big daddy for Israel,
Hypocrite Human Rights announcements,
Porn, Having sex with GFs for free, marrying GFs after having sons, Drugs, Gays, Transsexuals
This results in yuck, F Americans.

are all Americans like that? certainly not.

these people -while they are a lot- never had the ability to use the internet for example, {lack of knowledge, lack of internet fees, over trusting local news} (or perhaps inaccessibility to other Satellite independent news channels (do they still exist?))
to hear what lets say 'awaken'/not-yet-brainwashed Americans' opinion about the ME/Cartoons/War in Afghanistan/Arab-Israeli Conflict...etc

although they are misguided in their hate, because it's not the Americans who are ruining the ME..etc Slikrapid addressed this better in his post.

*'Arab' the word sparks the following thoughts to MOST Americans:
Deserts,
people living in tents,
Swords,
Heavily-bearded sun-burned men wearing white piece of stinky cloth walking with 4 wives and his Camel,
Free Oil (mis-administrated resources),
Stoning,
marrying infant girls,
kill first ask questions later,
all my life is in the mosque,
no education but quran is allowed

And again, this results in yuck, F Arab.
are all Arab like that? certainly not.


......and I think that you already know about the conflicts between arab and Israeli people..........

You think wrong, most westerners are busy:
'normals': watching TV-Shows..etc living the normal "I live caring for my personal enjoyment and I will die doing do so, and any distraction that requires thinking is too much for me".
Professionals: inventing l33t things and researching
so why should they invest time into something their media continuously advertise as 'bad' ?


violence in the middle east?! now that something new.
they hate everybody and everything, even themselves.

And here ladies and gentlemen a LIVE example of my above points :)

Possible, a silly/minor example from my university (and tons others),
Students and student groups took advantage of this either to fill their room walls, have Facebook pictures to show how cool they are and keen on their beliefs.
Why am I so sure of it? it happened today, so it's delayed, and proves that it's just: "everyone protested, except our university, we must protest too!".

you should KNOW MORE about the middle east by making PERSONAL researches and reading some NEUTRAL,SINCERE SCHOLARS' opinions about Islam and Middle EAST,but If you listen to THE MEDIA,you will definitely be MISLEADEAD.

abandoning CNN should be a good start



If people can't make peace in the real world,we WILL make it here in sb-innovation. :)
peace guys :)

I don't think anyone is asking for war or inciting violence here.
still a nice 'promise', you'll be a successful Human Rights Chief, Y008.

as a finishing comment: the whole response to the 'trailer' is just sad, and represents how a single spark is widely believed and acted-upon by a whole lot of what I (and others) considered as an educated portion of the society we live in,
the best response was to simply ignore, aren't Muslims after peace ? and Mohammad was a messenger of peace? why prove to the west that the movie make was right?

also I'd like to care for the magazine french troll, but I've run out of care points. perhaps I could have made him a free advertisement for his magazine using my uber Photoshop skills if he had asked beforehand :P

He meant to say that American soldiers on Muslim lands are the real terrorists. They rape the infant girls before their families, cut and crop old men. They kidnap entire families and take them to the middle of the deserts in the nights and what they do there with them is unspeakable. They also carry out mass murders and instruct other European nations to do that, like the one in Bosnia. They also carry out genocides in the poor/weak states of Africa to prove their racial superiority. They torture and terrorize teenage girls/boys/old men/women. And when they come across A man with Kalashnikov they shoot him up without any further delays. All this in the name of Freedom.

He also meant that the normal American population which is considered to be innocents are actually the capitalists. They are the ones real culprits. They work/generate the fuel which runs the economy that sustains the group of people who vote the government, which eventually does all of the above I said in 1'st paragraph.

On topic: People in the west can't imagine their lives without nude girls/free sex/drugs/capitalism/killing for fun and profit, that they are ready to go any lengths to protect it from anything that forbids it.

Portraying Muslims/Islam as the possessors/preacher of evil is just a part of the propaganda that is existence from the very first clashes of the two civilizations.

If you learn the history and look at the bigger picture, you'll find out that there's an ongoing war for existence between the two civilizations. And when you have war, you need a propaganda. Islamic civilization has managed to compete for this long with a civilization that has evolved from the family of the wolf hunters is an accomplishment but it's not going any further. It's core has got weaken and it's falling under it's own weight. The teachings of Islam has largely forgotten and ignored. Muslims have even worked out a way to kill Islam yet to remain Muslims themselves.

Not too far away the world will see the nukes rolling over the Arab skies, it's inevitable, fully deserving.
