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?
