Instead of closing embassies all over the Muslim world because there are some people who want to do America harm, why don't we stop and think about why they hate us in the first place?
And the reason they hate us in the first place is the overly close relationship between the United States and Israel. All we have to do is give Palestine back to the rightful owners, the Palestinian people, and they'll stop hating us.
But that will be hard to do, because Washington takes its marching orders from Tel Aviv.
