From Alternet.org:

This video plugging Avaaz.org exposes the myth of a fundamental clash between Islam and the West as a problem of politics—not cultures. It received over 1.4 million views and 37,000 comments on Youtube (right up there with Star Wars Kid), and helped secure Avaaz.org as the place for international online activism.

In just one year's time, Avaaz has amassed over 3.2 million members from 192 different countries, partly by leveraging video campaigns such as this along side online actions (mostly on human rights issues) that appeal to anyone with a soul and warm blood running through their veins. Check out their website... in 13 different languages!

(Commentary from Tim) Just to further point out how insane American hypocrisy is over the portrayal of Iraq and Muslim culture, I wanted to include the video below as well. The radical fundamentalists we should really be focusing our attention on are the millions in our own country who are fulfilling their wishes with the aid of a $439.3 billion dollar a year military complex.
