Riot on Temple Mount by "Palestinians" angry over Charlie Hebdo cartoons

Why would the refugees be angry at some cartoons?  The anger would imply this has something to do with Islam, as it is the only religion that motivates its believers to act in a violent way in response to slights or insults.

"Burn it burn it! ..... in the cause of God. Allah the greatest. Prophet Muhammad is our leader forever"

But remember, this display of overt religious fervor has NOTHING to do with Islam.  To make that connection brands you an Islamophobe, or worse, a racist.  What race is Islam again?  I keep forgetting.

French flag burned on Temple Mount in a large rally against Mohammad cartoons
Hundreds of Palestinians attended a rally on Friday afternoon on the Temple Mount against the new cover of the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, which featured a drawing of the Prophet Mohammad.

In a video uploaded by the Hamas-affiliated Shehab News Agency, protestors can be seen burning a French flag , and shouting: "Burn it burn it! ..... in the cause of God. Allah the greatest. Prophet Muhammad is our leader forever."

Charlie Hebdo's first edition since the attack on its office in Paris last week that left 12 journalists dead, published on Wednesday, featured another cartoon of the Prophet Mohammad on a cover that critics saw as a new provocation.
A protest in Niger against the French magazine's cartoons turned violent on Friday as demonstrators set fire to churches and raided shops run by Christians, residents said.

Police in the former French colony's southern town of Zinder fired tear gas on a crowd of hundreds of people as tires burned in the streets.

"The protesters are crying out in local Hausa language: Charlie is Satan - let hell engulf those supporting Charlie," said Aboubacar Mamane, a shopkeeper by telephone.
