Florida pastor arrested before he could burn 2998 Korans: A Florida pastor was arrested Wednesday as he drove a pickup truck towing a large barbecue-style grill filled with kerosene-soaked Korans to a park, where the pastor had said he was planning to burn 2,998 of the Muslim holy books — one for every victim of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

Some are inciting Islam: Why do we think it is our right to instigate Islam? O we want this war never to end? for our economy?
Egypt court suspends YouTube over anti-Islam film: The 13-minute video, billed as a film trailer and made in the United States, provoked a torrent of anti-American unrest in Egypt, Libya and dozens of other Muslim countries in September. The video depicts the Prophet as a fool and a sexual deviant. For most Muslims, any portrayal of the Prophet is considered blasphemous.
This would have been the latest in a 12 year attempt by Islamists to find something the west has done against their Religion so they can blow it all out of proportion so they can continue Bin Laden's vendetta against the west.
There are accepted ways of disposing of any Holy book but you do not see other Religions trying to kill everybody and rising up. I do believe we should get out of Afghanistan and leave them to their own demise. I do agree though that we just keep giving the Islamists reason to drum up anger against the west.
Remember when that idiot Pastor was going to burn the Koran and what that did? Quran-burning protests spread to Kandahar; 9 dead,Today this is getting worse and there is 20 dead. That fffing Jones!
Five Die In Second Koran burning Protest as Five people have died in protests in Kandahar against the burning of a copy of the Koran, a day after an attack prompted by the incident left at least 12 people dead, including seven UN staff.
I thought I better remind us of just a little of what we have done to Muslims to deserve their ire:
Remember the Swiss ban on Minarets The minaret was a political symbol against integration; a symbol more of segregation and first above all a symbol to try to introduce Sharia law parallel to Swiss rights. That sounds insane but it went directly to the paranoid citizens and they voted to outlaw the Minaret.
IRAN: Outrage, and a warning, over Swiss vote to ban minarets
Libya follows Iran in warning against Swiss minaret ban
Bishop of Arabia dismayed by minaret ban in Swiss homeland
Remember the Danish cartoons about Muhammad printed almost 5 years ago? Here they are
Remember the French headscarf ban after dozens of Muslim school girls were expelled for refusing to remove their head scarf To the French it is a sign of oppression but who cares what they think? Their desire to ban it altogether?
Remember Salman Rushdie, who went into hiding under threat of death after an Iranian fatwa, was knighted by the Queen? Muslim's wanted his head and he had to go into hiding
You know I have written often of my disgust with those who said we did nothing to deserve 9/11 or anything that has happened before and since. We more than asked for everything we got. Remember the Berlin conference Berlin Conference of 1884-1885 to Divide Africa
India and Pakistan being ad hoc divided by Britain
Why ever they are doing this while the long awaited middle east breakdown is under way. It started when Bush illegally attacked Iraq. We keep doing insulting things to anger Islamists over nothing but an excuse to ratchet up tensions towards a war. Those scum have nothing better to do with their time. In reality they are their peoples enemy and they are dragging them down as Bin Laden was. Decent Muslims should police themselves and take down the Islamists instigators looking for a war.
