Burned Qurans Left at Va. Muslim Center

BLACKSBURG, Va. -- A bag stuffed with burned Qurans was left in front of an Islamic center, shocking members when they arrived for prayers.
The torched copies of the Muslim holy book were inside a plastic shopping bag, members of the Islamic Center of Blacksburg said. They said the bag had been placed at the center's front door sometime before Saturday prayers.
"It is a shame that people are so ignorant," member Idris Adjerid said.
Kevin Foust, the agent in charge of the Roanoke FBI office, said Thursday his office is helping local police investigate. He declined to speculate whether the incident would be classified as a hate crime under state or federal law.

Maybe some barbequed pig knuckles would add flavor.....
I don't suppose the following is a very saintly attitude. However, it seems very fitting to me to go to a pig farm and wipe several pig's butts with pages from the Koran and FEDEX them to Saudia Arabia and other such places demanding decent treatment of Christians and Bibles before we will stop doing so. At the very least, they could stop killing Christians and forcing conversions to Islam. I'll stop here before I get extremely irate and even more unsaintly.
Damn. People need to stop throwing trash in the street.
Maybe they were collected from one of the Mosques that were burned by "protesters" in Afghanistan, or maybe from one of the Mosques in Iraq blown up by "insurgents".
What a waste of perfectly good paper.
Yeah, I'm sure that those people in the WTC would agree, as they plummeted to their deaths.
Muslims desecrate the Bible and Torah on a daily basis around the globe. And I should care because somebody burnt a few Korans for what reason?
Islam has to be the deadliest joke ever.
CAIR would scream and whine about islamophobia... these bunch of numbskulls
This is a time for them to reflect on what they did to provoke such an action.
No, Sir! It's a shame you didn't see it coming! For the whole time you spent ignoring the evils your co-religionists were committing on the "infidels" who only happened to be humans, you are reaping rich rewards now, aren't you?
You will see more of this coming, not just here, but in every place on this good earth where Muslims commit grave, barbaric injustices. We know you better now, and we have begun getting over our ignorance about you!
Public service but still littering I guess.
If you don't believe that the Koran is a holy book, is there anything wrong in burning it?
It it'd been a bag of Bibles you can bet it wouldn't've even made the local papers, let alone the ASS-ociated press - STOP PISSING-AROUND INVESTIGATING THIS AND GO DO REAL WORK!
"A bag stuffed with burned Qurans was left in front of an Islamic center,"
Obviously, they mistook the islamic center for a sewer treatment plant, an easy mistake to make.....they both are full of shiite...the difference is that the end product from the sewer treatment plant doesn't contain feces .....end product from the islamic center is feces.
People whose faith is a byword for intolerance and persecution of other religions whereever they are the dominant majority or even a substantial minority really should complain when they are at the receiving end of some mild actions like this.
But this is not the kind of actions we need to take.
We need Congressional action to stop the spread of Islamofascism in the United States and to stop immigration of Muslims into the U.S. unless they are clearly westernized in their political thinking.
Who cares? Why is this a story?
This sounds like another hoax. Ten to one odds the Muzzies did it to reap publicity sympathy.
What, exactly, did these American Muslims in Virginia do to provoke the desecration of their holy book?
If flag burning is protected free speech, why is koron burning a hate crime?
Guess which is more offensive to liberals--burning korans or burning WTC, Pentagon and jetliner?
What are you on now ? Koran or Qur'an is crap. By the way, have you read it ?
What a great use of time and taxpayer money for the Federal Bovine Institute to investigate a legitimate expression of free speech.
The same thing that those 3,000 people did to provoke 9-11, so we're told.
I'd rather be a Koran in the U.S. than a Bible in Saudi Arabia.
I hope you're joking.
You were told that, by these Muslims in Virginia?
Nah. Simply misplaced garbage dumping.
Nope. I was told that by the anti-American left. You see, if it applies to us, then it must apply to them.
There are no American muslims, there are only muslims whose first and only allegiance is to islam and other muslims.
Islam is NOT a religion. It is a terrorist organization that masquerades as a religion so it can "fly under the radar".
There are American Muslims. That you don't realize that is ignorance on your part.
That's pretty dopey.
This isn't right. I am a Christian, and people should treat others with more respect than this.
Don't blame me, I didn't make up moral relativism.
The Mosque would have made a bigger flame...
But you've adopted it.
"It is a shame that people are so ignorant," member Idris Adjerid said...
Ignorant /ig-no-runt/ adj. - A serious affliction characterized by irrational overreactions, such as being "shocked" at the site of burned sheets of paper.....
The paper was already wasted when it went through the printing press.
I'm waiting for some enterprising soul to make a video clip of himself taking a great big ol' royal whiz on the Quran, then dousing it in lighter fluid, topped off with a match and great big *WHOOOOMP* (that's the sound you get when something ignites suddenly, eh?), and be sure that video gets distributed round 'n round the world via that marvelous Al Gore invention, the Internet.
Hmmm, maybe I'll get out the ol web camera tonite... ;)
If this was the forties Bugs Bunny would be slapping Bin laden on the big screen!
Wow, Blacksburg, Virginia has its own federal hate officer? How much are citizens there fined for frowning and scowling?
"That you don't realize that is ignorance on your part."
Wah, wah. Wah, wah, wah, wah.....The facts regarding muslims actions and inactions speak for themselves. Ignorance is ignoring the facts.
Sure, if it's going to be the order of the day among our leaders.
islam IS a hate crime
yea what a real pitty. Wonder how many jihad cells are under this supposed house of worship. Whatever that really means to them. The only act out physical movements, obey all daily living actions without blinking an eye to question things, and learn to at best "parrot verses" from the Quran. Who is kidding who. Keep em dumb and obiedient so that they can be convinced to join in the jihad. That is a basic premise of Islam in all it's various teachings and flavors. Hard to get around it.
Hundreds of thousands of American Muslims are doing it, every day.
You really need to get out more.
I dare any local, state or federal agency to declare such a determination.
There is a limit to what even American sheep will tolerate.
No damage was done to persons or property. The precedents have been clearly set: this is a form of expression which has been tested in thousands of cases since the wonderful sixties.
Apply those precedents selectively at your own risk.
Bibles... or American flags. Nope, burning those isn't a hate crime. Let's put that another way: if a legitimate exercise of one's First Amendment freedom of speech is to burn a flag, then it must also be a legitimate exercise to burn Korans, otherwise, it's religious discrimination on the part of the government (for prosecuting one and not the other) which also violates the First Amendment.
