I find it funny that these muslims hate us so much yet they like to live in our country living on our tax money and using our health and education system.

theres many people here in the UK who find burning the american flag disrespectful., especially on the anniversary of 9/11. i can only apologise to our american allies for this repulsive behaviour outside the US embassey in london. the same group of people burnt our poppy on armistice day last year. shame their quran didnt get burnt
Huh? I never said We did before 9/11.
9/11 was a satanic ritual, an insurance fraud, a pretext for war (to the profit of the war suppliers), a destruction of evidence, a stealing of the gold, scheme created by individuals directly involved at the highest level of Our government. You sound as if You're going to haul in that tattered excuse of an explanation for 9/11 called the "OS."
Apologize for Them? Never. If there is anything to apologize for, that is on Them. Understand and empathize? Every time. That is why I can see that We should take the blame.

Those of you that are defending the actions of these alleged protesters should be ashamed of yourselves. Regardless of your political stance, the memorial was intended to honor the innocent lives lost on 9-11, which has no direct correlation to military exploits overseas.
If you look closely at the top picture of the protesters in the link provided, one of the signs being held up states "Islam will dominate the world". Yes, what a noble cause they represent and impeccable timing they have
And the "picture of the towers," being a piece of paper, if They owned it and burnt it safely, They have every right. On any day of the year. And if I sound silly to You now, some day You will understand. Or not. Your choice.
It's easy for you to "empathize" with a mindset that can plunge a rusty knife into an innocent journalist's throat and then send the video to his pregnant wife, but not so easy for me.
Um... Wow. How do You know that the cloth-burners had anything at all to do with that incident? That would be as if I said You planned 9/11 because You, too, live in that country.
quote] Of course they deliberately chose the anniversary of 9.11! What better way to make a political statement than to do it on a day when the world's attention is on the subject?
All this whining about "insensitivity" is annoying. How sensitive has the USA been murdering tens or even hundreds of thousands directly over the past 10 years? How sensitive is it to bomb schools, churches, medicine factories, hospitals, etc? This isn't even counting the ongoing MURDERS that will occur due to deformities and cancers caused by DU munitions, lack of education or health care (because we bombed it), the total destruction of infrastructure, economy, jobs, etc..
I had a conversation with an Iraq VET - I complained that we don't care about the innocent lives we're taking in the Middle East. He claimed we do care - all Americans care, he said. Let me ask you all this: If bombs were falling on churches, schools, and homes in your neighborhood would you continue watching Dancing With the Stars, Southpark, and whatever other meaningless crap people fill their heads with? Would we still be going out to the movies? House parties? Would we still be worried about having the latest, coolest, shiniest thing? No. We would be out in the streets protesting, organizing, coming together to STOP the murders!
Or maybe we would get a bumper sticker ribbon to show the world that we care.. And that would be enough "activism." So long as we all sit back and continue to enjoy our privileged, Western lives, without contributing anything to the betterment of the world, we have no right to complain about those who do get out to convey their frustrations. ESPECIALLY those who are justified in doing so. If you aren't active, shut up and stop complaining. Talking on the internet where you are protected from the backlash of conveying your ideals does not count.
