The article discusses the reasons for the anger of Muslim populations. In 2003, Muslims became agitated over what they saw as a bloodbath in Iraq after the fall of Iraqi President Saddam Hussein. The unending crisis between the Israelis and Palestinians and the perceived double standard of the U.S. have also stoked Muslim anger. Muslims have vented their anger over Lebanon by demonstrating against Israel's bombing of Lebanon.
