I heard some group asassinated some other group's leader last week and that is what they think the attack is about. I think that's the event the news report you posted was talking about.

We must remember that, although there was "celebration in the streets" in places overseas, it is probably a case of a few loud people overpowering the voice of the many silent ones who agree with the majority that this is an inhumane and horrible act. A lot of people in those countries that are enemies of the US are not in favour of these actions.
Statements like "How are we supposed to make peace with these people" and "All these people want to do is fight" implies that all people in a country are of the same mind. These countries are enemies of the US for a reason, and that is usually human rights violations and illegal takeover of governments, against the will of the people of the country.
Also, at this point, **we don't know who did it**. It could be (probably is) a small group of the lunatic fringe. It may not even be an Arab group. Remember Timothy McVeigh, and other domestic enemies of the American government on their compounds in places like Montana...
Another important thing to remember is that immigrant Arabic people who are in the US and other countries are usually there because they didn't agree with the policies of their country. They are on your side.
You can really mess up your knees, jumping to conclusions...
