As long as it is a faith issue pitting Jesus against Mohamet, rationality cannot dictate a path. Reason and the American way of viewing the situation is to recognize that no one can force a mind and trying to only destroys the capacity to value. Insults or appeasements are not arguements or positive suggestions.
The problems are obviously oil and Israeli security. The answer is to stand up for our principles and stop the moral equivalence between insults and violence. We should not tolerate violence against our people and property even if it means leaving the arab countries to themselves without our money, trade or aid. Let them decide if it is better to trade or riot and learn where their real interest lies.
