The short answer is no.

Reader comment on item: Should We Blame a Florida Pastor for Deaths in Afghanistan?

The long answer is of course not.

Millions of people are being killed in the Arab/ Muslim world without a white man giving them a reason to do so.The reasons are as many as the imagination can come up with.Fueds that last forever are just one reason.Owing money to someone is another.

Shia/Sunnie carnage has been going on for centuries.Who's fault is it ? The Jews? the Christians?

Women are favorite victims.It is pracrtically legit to kill them ,no need to blame somebody but the woman herself.

In the Arab world they do share one behavior.The need to blame someone else for what you have done.Arafat was good at preaching - whatever happens , blame the Jews.And they did.The Jews committed the terror attacks.I suppose that SHALIT walked into Gaza and begged to become a hostage.

If we are being told not to do things that will make Arabs angry enough to kill - sorry. we are not built to behave that way.It will make a lot more sense if the Muslims will be educated not to kill each other and not to kill anyone else.However , for that they need democracies where law and order rule and that is not going to happen any time soon.
