45. Remember, the cartoons were the match, the fuel was the "West" war
on Arab countries, that includes torture, occupation, attacks on media outlets! (not from protesters, but from shiny, expensive F-15 bombers!), kidnappings by US military. Then there is the long-standing, US supported occupation of Palestine. Add a few US supported Arab dictatorships, who allow little or no political organizing but plenty of religion... this is what happens.
