Iranian-backed TV broadcasts US Koran desecrations, inflames deadly Kashmir riots; 15 dead


The Iranians seized on reports of Koran burnings near Ground Zero and elsewhere in the U.S. to fan deadly riots Monday in mostly-Muslim Kashmir.

Indian forces killed more than a dozen people and wounded scores more rampaging rioters, who chanted "Down with Koran desecrators" as they attacked a Christian school in one town and government buildings in other cities.

They also chanted "Down with America" and "Down with Israel," cries rarely heard in Kashmir where Muslim rebels have long waged a bloody rebellion against Indian rule.

U.S. Ambassador Timothy Roemer appealed for calm and condemned Koran-burning as "disrespectful, intolerant, divisive and unrepresentative of American values."

"The deliberate destruction of any holy book is an abhorrent act," he said.

Kashmiri officials also removed a state-run Iranian station from local cable networks that had been fanning the anger by repeatedly broadcasting reports of Koran burnings in the U.S., said Kuldeep Khoda, who heads the state police.

Khoda said they were expecting demonstrations once the Muslim holiday of Ramadan ended but were surprised by the size and anger of Monday's protests.

Most broadcasters have given scant coverage to the still-unidentified man who was hustled away from an anti-Muslim protest in Lower Manhattan by the NYPD after he tore and burned pages from a Koran.

They have also mostly refrained from airing footage of a gay-hating group in Kansas and two publicity-seeking Tennessee pastors burning the Muslim holy book on the ninth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.

Those Muslim holy book burnings were inspired by a Florida pastor who called off his plan to burn the Koran at the last minute after being warned that his rash act would endanger U.S. soldiers serving in Muslim countries.

The Iranians, however, have been using that handful of rash acts to push the message that the U.S. is at war with Islam - a notion that President Obama has repeatedly denounced as false.

The deadliest violence broke out in the village of Tangmarg, where Indian troops fired on a mob that tried to torch a Christian-run school. Five were killed and at least 50 were wounded.

In the town of Budgam, four more people - including a young woman - were killed when demonstrators attacked a police station and the government forces with rocks. An Indian police officer was also killed.

In the Kashmiri city of Srinagar, dozens of demonstrators with bullet wounds packed hospital emergency rooms.

There also were angry anti-American demonstrations in Afghanistan for a third straight day.

As long as the victims are all Muzzies, then it’s a win-win.

Since the Muslims end up killing Muslims and burn down their own property when we insult them, why again do we refrain?

If all America is bad because a Koran is burned then all Muslims are bad because they are murderous, perverted barbarians

Read the article again. The Muslims were engaging in violence against Christians in their area, attempting to burn down a Christian school, etc.

I’m sorry.... Am I the only one who caught this ?!

“The deadliest violence broke out in the village of Tangmarg, where Indian troops fired on a mob that tried to torch a Christian-run school. Five were killed and at least 50 were wounded. “

It’s ok for them to light a school ablaze ? The focus is STILL on a few books burning as a symbol ?

I am willing to make an arrangement. We will drop a bible on the ground in the middle of Mecca. The muslims can stomp on it, urinate on it, whatever. As long as at the end of their anger, WE get to light it on fire.

From orbit. With a nuke.

If I knew that fifteen moslems would be killed rioting every time I burned a koran I would tear out and burn one page a day!

And If I was in NYC I would throw an opened can of SPAM, or a raw pork chop, into the Cordoba house location every time I passed!

Muslims are begging the rest of the world for a Holocaust. If they continue with their ways, it won’t be a question of if, but rather, when.

If it wasn’t this, it’d be over a soccer game, a solar eclipse, the discovery of a witch,, something. Who cares?

Well, they’re sure living up to the stereotype of “don’t call us violent or we’ll kill you”.

To their twisted minds, it's OK to burn people, but not a book.

Similar to Enviro-wacko logic. It's OK to destroy civilization to save the planet.

From the article,...

"Indian forces killed more than a dozen people and wounded scores more rampaging rioters, who chanted "Down with Koran desecrators"..."

India needs more ammo and less restraint. Thanks Gennie.
