Thus any conduct is condoned because bottom line, anger is holy. From burning oneself alight in downtown Tunis (hailed as a hero's action) to pogromming the Israeli embassy in Cairo to trampling, smashing and burning -a-la-SA storm-troopers-. If the hysterical collective anger is given the stamp of "holiness", civilization will always be violent, and the weak will suffer most: minorities such as copts, or shias where sunnis are a majority, or sunnis where shias are a majority. There is a continuum between the sanctification of rage and the obscenity of suicide bombings. They kill Muslims every day in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan. It comes from the notion that anger is "holy", which is also the interpretation Islamists give to Jihad. This notion is wrong, and uprooting it is incumbent to Muslims themselves, before they burn others and themselves in the altar of an emotion that has no limits nor scruples nor reason. It spins out of control with masses of people in the streets, which is part and parcel of the Arab Spring, as well as of Muslim pogroms.
