This forms part of Friday prayers in some Mosques. It may not represent mainstream muslim veiws. Certainly in westernised Muslims it does not.
Can anyone on the Board point me to a TV report Newspaper article of Thousands of citizens, fired up by their churches or indeed anything else, chanting "Death to Syria" and storming a Muslim Embassy? For any reason?
(OK the SAS stormed the Iranian embassy in 1979, but that was because The Iranians had taken Hostages and threatened them with Death)
Western countries take statements like "America will be destroyed" and "London will burn with a fiery cross". Even when we are at war witha country, we will not mass and shout "Behead Muslims" or "Death to Afghanistan".
Any Mass demonstrations in the west are restricted to improving Human rights, slating the government or showing anti-war feelings.
Perhaps a worldwide mass demonstration organised by the Islamic Council could condem the thousands of Citizens carbombed/beheaded/kidnapped, etc etc? The political prisoners tortured and held in Arab Dictatorships?
My point here is not to Insult Muslims. It is to point out TV stories are spun in certain ways to be sure. But Embassys did Burn. Threats HAVE been made. Thousands chanting "Death to <Favorite kuffa country>" ARE regular events.
Compare that to the wests response.
