in response to reader comment: Lack of understanding remains

Bader S mentions that "Freedom of speech lies at the very center of their ( elitist frog jibberish verbiage)". No sir , freedom of speech is not the central theme, for myself anyway. Freedom in every aspect is the central theme. Freedom to worship, freedom of women, freedom of the press, speech and especially the freedom to tell some self appointed cleric to stick it up you know where when he demands that I go into the street to protest some cartoon that I have never even seen or could give a damn about.

Those who are ignorant about what happens in that part of the world need to know that the very first protestors into the streets are paid government workers or those that could use a few dinars to get something to eat. Then the government media beats the drums and the next day the mullahs push more into the streets. It is well orchestrated until the time when mass mob violence becomes the attraction for anyone that wishes to smash or grab (as in the case of the many non-religious criminals).
