A brave and poignant reflection. Stating the obvious - that which stares us all in the face - should in a just society be risk-free. But, the Muslim insecurities and self-conscious religious posturing sanction institutionalized violence wherever the protesters voices are heard.
I fear the only real hope is that the Sunnis and Shias simply mutually self-destruct and out of the ashes something tolerant and worthwhile may emerge. But, I doubt it.

Thanks for your comment. Japan might provide a prototype for what we are hoping for. A militarily neutered entity who's talents find expression in other arenas.
