I don't think the overwhelming majority of Muslims ever cared. Other than sad, annoying facebook campaigns which are so clueless as to not know that one cannot campaign for a restriction of a constitutional right. Even now, the pictures of violent protest we see, with crowds of angry demonstrators stupidly retaliating against one fringe pastor's insensitivities by burning American flags (can hypocrisy become any more absurd?), are restricted to Afghanistan -- where we are at war. Almost nobody in the media is talking through this, at all. Clearly, the anger at the Qur'an burning is largely restricted to places in which other larger political concerns are operating, and the reaction from practically everywhere else has been remarkable silence or statements of condemnation.
I don't like the framing that is taking place -- at all. This framing is absurd, it is dangerous and it is irrational. It suggests that Americans, all of us, regardless of religion, should be held hostage by the violent actions of a few crazed extremists. When Obama drew attention to Pastor Jones' actions and their potential ramifications abroad, he was right from a foreign policy angle, of course, and the military of course has an interest in maintaining good relations in those contexts where it's fighting a war. But constitutionally speaking, Jones had and has every right to do what he wants to do, whether sensitive or not. We are American Muslims, and our circumstances and decisions cannot and should not be linked to what some foreign Muslims, a very small percentage, may or may not do, especially if those actions threaten the identity of America and our freedoms. It is deeply problematic to make and close the argument that any private American citizen should or should not do something based on what will happen elsewhere, if that action sits at the heart of American freedoms.
