Why Muslims Protest
Probably the best analysis I've read on why Muslims attack our embassies and generally just aren't very friendly with Americans, to say the least:
"But, as when a single offensive remark from someone you've long disliked can make you go ballistic, the explanation for this explosion goes deeper than the precipitating event. What are the sources of simmering hostility toward America that helped fuel these protests? Here is where you get to answers that neither Barack Obama nor Mitt Romney wants to talk about and that, therefore, hardly anybody else talks about."
