"The word that is missing in the headlines, and that comes in later paragraphs in news stories is: Muslim."
If this is indeed the true cause of the rioting, we can now see the the 'Middle East Issue' of Christians vs. Muslims will become the Crusades of the 21st century, but with a new twist - civil war, in which we fight amongst ourselves, instead of Us vs. Them. The fact of this century is that we are an integrated society that had better learn to deal with our heterogeneity a whole lot better than we have in the past. How ironic that what was once perceived as the Race Issue has become the Religion Issue again. Seems we have learned nothing in the last couple millennia. Will 'Religion' lead us back into the Dark Ages?
