This will end badly. We are just not the same culturally as the native muslim middle eastern people. Most are undereducated and prone to mob mentailty.
We are a country that values its freedom. People are going to make images of muhammed. They are going to make fun of Islam.
Those undereducated lack a basic understanding of how our system of government works. They have no clue that the preacher who wants to burn the Koran has the support of 0.000001% of the population. They throw us all into that pool.
We are not going to bridge this gap without the Arab leaders educating their populace on how democracy works and they are never going to do that because they like wealth and power
