The Civilized Saudis

Standard

Saleh Fareed:

As angry demonstrators stormed US and European embassies in many countries in protest at a movie denigrating the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), a large number of young Saudis began raising awareness about the Prophet through various campaigns on social networking sites. Recently social media has been abuzz with Muslims speaking out against the violence and they took the initiative to portray the correct image of the Prophet.

The question is: if demonstrations were actually allowed in Saudi Arabia, would the protests about something like this be so civilized? Wake me up when the government allows street protests.
