▸ Thoughts on Anti-American Protests (Certified Falafel Expert/Avicennas)

what do you think of the anti-american protests and attacks on embassies in north africa and the middle east (as response to an anti-islam film)? muslim clergy are inciting the masses even more.

the film maker knew that this film would have this effect and they went ahead and did it anyways, because apparently their opinion is more important than peoples’ lives. this film was made in order to incite a certain response, and that response was received which was to ‘show’ that muslims are ‘violent’ and ‘hateful’. that is not what we are and i still do not understand the idea to attack or even protest american embassies. boycott the film and discourage its promotion like every other successful boycott has done. inform that this is not what muslims believe or that it is a representative of what islam is (or more so who muhammad (saws) was). this is what imams should be telling to the masses. no disrespect to those who have ~peacefully~ protested, i just feel that there is a gap as to who should be the recipient of the protests, so these embassy protests make no sense especially where there is violence unfortunately involved. what is being protested is understood, however, what entity it should be aimed towards to isn’t. 

a part of me still thinks it’s trying to delegitimize the arab spring in some way
