Way to show us that most followers of Islam are in fact peaceful, non-militant followers of the religion.
Seriously, they should not have burned the books, that's fucked up. But this level of protesting, including an Afghani solider shooting and killing two US soldiers over it, doesn't exactly seem like a good response.
why is it fucked up they burnt the books? IF people did this with the tora or whatever it is called and the bible nobody would give a shit.
before 9/11 muslims themselves probably wouldn't give a shit if their holy book was burned. It is as if they need to act this way to play into their own stereotypes of being islamic nutjobs, it seriously doesn't make any fucking sense.
If they had a shred of intelligence or something about them. Their immediate reaction should have been "let these ignorant fools burn our book, it doesn't bother me."
Grrrr fuckin' islam.
In fact, I have come to the conclusion that it is because of years of tip toeing around their 'religion' in the name of political correctness has allowed them to bitch and even become violent at the near thought of some kind of insult to their 'religion'.
while they have endeared years of being labelled terrorists, at the same time their 'religion' has had some kind of special privileged status.
While I'll go ahead and let the whether it truly is fucked up or not be discussed by others, I will say it was at least STUPID because they should have foreseen a reaction similar to this.
How did they find out that troops had burned the quran? (sp) Did they do it out in the open/film it? That's an obviously inflammatory thing to do, and they clearly should have expected fallout. At the same time, COME ON! IT'S A FUCKING BOOK! It's not like they were the last 4 copies of the quran! People need to settle down about religion. Stop acting like god cares about a book. He's God. if he REALLY REALLY cared, he would have smote the burners as soon as they got the idea to burn them...
These people are animals. This shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone.
Aint' religion grand?
