Poll: 55% of Arab Muslims Believe "Offensive Words" Justify Violence

Wow. Religion of sticks and stones will break my bones, but mutter offensive words ... and we'll break yours!

Asked under what conditions violence is permissible, more than 60% cited Western interference in a Muslim country, while 55% said offensive words or behaviour was a trigger.
I'd say the above explains the image below, but it doesn't. This pic was taken in Indonesia, often held up as a shining example of moderate Islam.


Gotta add this comment from Bluto: Don't call me violent or I'll kill you!
