Re: muslim day of love
I get what you're saying, Mom, but in very real terms these countries are occupied by foreign powers. Many of the same arguments that you and others use in our gun debates here apply perfectly in Pakistan, Iraq, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, etc., much more so than they do here in the US of A. So why shouldn't they use violence?
For the record, I support non-violent protest for lots of reasons, but mainly because it works better than violent protest 90% of the time.
