Nursery Rhymes on Cultures Knee:

Western 1872 version: Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me.

"Sticks and Stones" is an English language children's rhyme. It persuades the child-adult victim of name-calling to ignore the taunt, to refrain from physical retaliation, and to remain calm and good-natured.

Role in Western culture
This sentiment is reflected in/reflects the Western common law of civil assault, which holds that mere name-calling does not give rise to a cause ‘provocation’ of action, while putting someone in fear of physical violence does.

Western 2015 version: Swords and guns may break my bones, but words, images, body language will never hurt me.

Western “Duty to Doubt” Be doubtful, Be sceptical, Be critical.

Certainty is the root of all evil.

Accept being doubted, accept being viewed as untrustworthy, and accept being criticised without resorting to violence.

"Islam can be "part of British identity", arguing they had a duty to do more to fight extremism and root out anyone preaching hatred. Muslim groups said the letter unfairly singled them out."
UK plea to imams to fight extremism draws charge of Islamophobia DNA Monday, 19 January 2015

"they had a duty to do more to fight extremism" Why is this demand extremely important and could be the policy tipping point those of us who know the Only the 'Few'/'Moderate'/'Not Islam' policy paradigm was doomed to failure because no cultural behavioral variance is the same, some consistently constantly from generation to generation include terror against Other and should not therefore be allowed into any Public Square.

It would appear there is a realisation by a Western Government, the UK Government:

“..organization is going to affect how conflicts are handled. .. The organization by the way its structured, by its policies, by the way its managed, by the culture that develops, the relationships it sets up among its members, all of that structuring and context, will have a great influence on how members behave when they’re in a conflict.”

"In their desperate quest for personal power, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan of Turkey and Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak of Malaysia appear to be not only destroying their personal reputations but also dragging their countries towards religious extremism and confrontation between national minorities. 

..one cannot avoid noting the slow but steady Islamisation of both the private lives of Malaysia's people and their state."

Those in the ABC and SBS who seek to legitimise the notion of the Islamic/Muslim culture being 'provoked' .. had better start realising as with a bullying child they are legitimising the Islamic/Muslim behaviour terror against Other.

There are much worse images through time and space than the above predicated upon the construct of 'provoked' yet we pander to this culture of death which is Islam by legitimising such actions through legislation and notions being 'provoked' is 'understandable'.

What is not being questioned here is why does a culture secular or religious require a cultural codex which informs a mental schema of 'provocation' which informs violent response? Nobody that I can see is asking why is it there in the first place? We are simply accepting such a construct is valid, given history I believe this is a very dangerous assumption to make.
