    This touches upon a point which has always struck me. The world press is always reporting on Islamic rage here, and Islamic rage there, and Arab rage , and Arab rage there , Palestinian rage here and Palestinian rage there. And they report on this as if it were justified and as if the West or the U.S. or Israel, or whoever is outraged at must immediately do everything they can, make every concession to assuage this rage.
    Rage is an Islamic propaganda technique.
    It is also a sign of the ‘outraged’ as often being hysterical, and irrational.
