    You have a point, I agree, except that I can't help keeping in mind the power-imbalance that exists between that of Israel (the Jews), and, that of those Muslims, who are engaging in the violent demonstrations. There, in the Middle East, some people see nothing strange about a small number of Caucasians (and, their allies) pushing around non-Caucasians, in their own region---but, I do! It's real easy to be "tolerant", when you, and, your "big brother" (the U.S.) are in the process of preparing to "put 'em in their place", anyway, by doing to Iran what y'all did, and, are doing to Iraq. The big picture is that Israel can pick-and-choose when to take offense, and, when they choose to, they don't simply burn buildings, or, flags---they blow entire communities out of existence! It's revealing, how one is "uncivilized", when they react violently to provocation, yet, disproportionate, indiscriminate violence, on the part(s) of others is discriminately viewed as justifiable.
