Afghans protest Quran burning plan, torch US flag
KABUL, Afghanistan Hundreds of angry Afghans burned a U.S. flag and chanted "Death to the Christians" on Thursday to protest plans by a small American church to torch copies of the Muslim holy book on the anniversary of the Sept. 11 terror attacks.
Religious and political leaders across the Muslim world, as well as several U.S. officials, have asked the church to call off the plan, warning it would lead to violence against Americans. Iraq, worried that it will unleash a backlash against all Christians, has beefed up security near churches.

You know in the old America if they had threatened to kill our troups over a koran burning we would have replied "for every one you kill of us you kill we will kill a hundred of you."
But alas, this is wussy America run by liberals and rinos who think that muslims threats of violence trump constitutional rights.
should have read-
“for every one of us you kill we will kill a hundred of you.”
Just keep in mind that they recently killed something like a dozen aid workers because they were Christians.
Thats prior to the book burnings. You’re in danger if they burn the books. You’re in danger if they don’t.
They haven’t burned the Joran yet and already they are burning the flag when in fact they have been burning the flag for forty years or more.
These terrorists never stop.
These terrorists are intolerant of other religions.
Nothing we do or don’t do is going to change the minds of these terrorists.
They will remain terrorists until we gladly send them to Allah.
Saudi Arabia Desecrates Hundreds of Bibles Annually

Washington DC - The Saudi government burns and desecrates hundreds of bibles its security forces confiscate after raids on Christian expatriates worshiping privately or at border crossings.
As a matter of official policy, the government either incinerates or dumps bibles, crosses and other Christian paraphernalia.
Hundreds of Christian worshipers are arrested every year by Saudi police in raids on their private gatherings. Bibles, crosses and printed materials are confiscated and later burnt or dumped into trash. Bibles and other Christian paraphernalia found with travelers into the country are confiscated and destroyed.
Although considered as holy in Islam and mentioned in the Koran dozens of times, the Bible is banned in Saudi Arabia, and is confiscated and destroyed by government officials.
...The American State Department had no comment on this issue.
Yep, lets rock and roll, they have been killing us since the
crusades, we just don’t get along, I hope all over the world burns it, Bhuddist, Atheist, Hindu’s, Christians, just say it, Islam, may it rot in Hell..
No one would have even known about this if the MSM had not set it on fire.. I say any blood spilled is on their hands..
I think the barbarians are to thank for this..
Do you ever wonder why zero is popular with the muslimes?
The 30 days of front page coverage of the Abu Ghraib photos also “endangered” troops and led directly to the hasty murder of kidnap victims like Nick Berg.
Why anyone would walk on eggshells regarding the cult of islam is beyond me. We should be converting them to Christianity, just like Ann Coulter suggested so long ago.
Announce to the world;
Get out of afganistan.
Get out now.
In thirty days we will pull all our troops out.
If you are still there, you’re on your own.
Bring all troops home that are in muslim controlled contries. Close all embasies in those countries. Nobody from those countries may enter the USA.
If you give aid to them, you will not do business in america. Including the UN.
In 90 days we will stop doing business with any gov’t run by muslims.
This includes saudi arabia. You do business with saudi arabia, close your embasies in the US and go home.
Rachel Corrie knew that she would have a pressing engagement so she burned the American flag before this issue ever came up.
OK fess up now...
Who was it that burned a Koran on Sept 10, 2001 ???
You know its only too bad people like you weren't around for the founding of the country, then you could have written the first amendment the way it should have been written
You have freedom of speech*
*unless it offends muslims
You are such a courageous and principled american, hurray for you!!!!!!!!!
So do you think this is the first American flag that a muslim has burned? They have been burning flags and killing Americans for a long time.
Funny thing, though. Nobody has burned the Koran yet.
Muslims will provoke things and then blame the people they are provoking.
They do it to Jews all the time.
I wonder how GW would have handled this situation, if it had ever happened during his Presidency. Any thoughts?
the only way to get the respect of these sandrats and camel-jockeys is to turn off the dollar spigot and yank the 5th Fleet home-overnight.
That’ll get their attention. NOTHING ELSE WILL.
The Corrie in her name always reminds me of Corrie ten Boom
However those 2 women were light years apart in religion, politics and ideology...
“The Hiding Place”
I am just curious.
Nine Years ago, how many Fringe “Christian” Churches burned Korans to Cause the Terrorist Attacks on 9/11/01?
Up till THAT point, weren’t they just burning Elvis and Beatles Records?
In the end, thats the right answer. Half the earth is under the thrall of a death cult, and Coulter had it right.
Big pile of ashes in the Rose Garden...
The very reason we all need to burn a Koran tomorrow. I am going to download one, print it out and burn it. These islam bastards need to be taught a lesson, that lesson is we are not afraid of you, you head chopping bastards.
I think we need a nationwide Koran Burning Day !
I’m sick of this sh*t !!!
Why? It was these savages who chose on their own to act like this. You certainly don't see Afghans in the USA being targeted for retaliation because of these actions.
It is not the fault of the pastor in Florida, or anyone else, if a small group of uncivilized savages chooses to run amok and cause trouble.
If Karzai has any balls he’ll investigate who funded that demonstration with those pre-printed green signs denouncing America...
...it’s there the provisional governments enemies lay.
Or we could pull out of there and let their friends the Taliban ‘govern’ them once again.
It laughable that this pos excuse for a country...this hellhole that doesn’t even have toilet paper can protest what goes on over here.
The Government under Bush and Obama have had the FBI , Defense Department, and the State Department endorse a Terrorist front group to train their departments and act as the lead spokes group for Moderates. even FOX has accepted CAIR. We let radical Imams into our prisons and to write text for our schools.
We keep asking, “Where are the Moderates”. Some have spoken out but have not been able to influence change and none have gotten close to the position of acceptance of a spokes group as CAIR.
All we see is large numbers of extremists and extreme regimes.
I can’t type what I really want to type as I suspect I’d receive a visit from Obozo’s brown shirts if I did. So, I’ll just say, instead, these peaceful mooselimbs surely know how to demonstrate the high road /s.
[You can thank that moron pastor for this and many more events to come.]
Yeah, because prior to this those peace loving muslims would have never considered burning an American flag, or raping, beheading, flying planes into towers, stoning people to death, or cutting people’s heads off either.
They still believe in man-made global warming despite the evidence.
They want us to Live long and die out
Just another day in the middle east.
I think Bush would have the good sense to stay out of it.
I may not say this right, but agree or disagree with this preacher’s intentions, it will underscore for the world (once again) just how much we are hated by the Muslem faith. I see that as a good reminder, and a necessary glimpse into reality. Not only that, these media images coming from the Middle East will probably force Obama to play his cards and expose a little more how he really feels. Choose sides, put out fires, open up, express scorn, extend an olive branch, or declare wars. Whatever the case, the monkey will be on his back.
By George, I think I've got it! Blame Muhammad!
Amen to that. Those who think that someone burning a book that they happen to own is a causal factor in someone committing murder or terror is woefully mistaken.
Muslims detest the existence of non-muslims and will kill regardless of perceived provocation.
Get real. They have been burning the US flag on several occasions and will do so again anytime they feel like doing it (like when we do not send them enough money).
They’re a bunch of crazy idiots. They’ll use any chance to burn, kill and destroy.
We do not want you or your koran among us. We do NOT mix.
One single American Citizen exercising his Constitutional Right to burn a few pages of a single book and WWIII breaks out.
And of course all the fallout will fall on the Pastor and not on the terrorists who have been waging war against America since the fall of IRAN in 1979.
If this event helps to wake up America to the fact that we are actually in a global war (a Jihad against everything we as Americans believe in, then you betcha I will thank him for that event.
If people get killed, (and I would think Pastor Jones will be among the first) then I will blame the terrorists.
I’m going to go out on a firm limb and guess that there were also Bibles burned at this “Death to Christians” mob gathering. I’m also going to guess that the AP deliberately left that part out of their story.
Did Obama “implore” them not to?
I'm sure you are right. No pack of rabid moslems have ever burned an American flag before this insensitive provocation.
“Oh, this flag-burning and protest is about the Koran burning?”
Dittos !!! And the “Koran burning” hasn’t even happened....yet
Yes he was not a divider.
EXACTLY !yet our news media can’t wait to stir things up.This happens every other day over there. Our media want to win with Obama. Win WHAT though is the sad thing. They are against America and pro terrorists all under the guise of they’re bullshit political correctness.
