Insult to WWII heroes: Graves of British troops smashed and desecrated by Libyan Islamists in protest over U.S. soldiers' Koran burning
A furious mob has desecrated dozens of Commonwealth War Graves in a Libyan cemetery amid continuing fury in the Middle East over the burning of the Koran by U.S. soldiers.
Headstones commemorating British and Allied servicemen, killed during World War II campaigns in the Western Desert, lay smashed and strewn across Benghazi Military Cemetery.
Protesters rampaged through site on Friday, despite efforts by America to calm tensions sparked when it emerged U.S. soldiers had burned Muslim holy books in a pile of rubbish at a military base in Afghanistan.
President Obama has apologised to President Karzai for the unintentional burning of the Korans at NATO's main Bagram air base after Afghan labourers found charred copies while collecting rubbish.
White House spokesman Jay Carney sought to counter criticism, telling reporters on board Air Force One: It is wholly appropriate, given the sensitivities to this issue, the understandable sensitivities.
But it appears to have had little affect on sentiment among many in the Middle East.

If only our first Muslim President would apologize, that would make it alright. /sarc
These savages are the ones the White House has sided with. Remember this.
Thanks. I never thought I could feel even greater disgust for the occupation of our country then this recent bout appeasement.
My internet connection is poor tonight, so I’m having trouble searching, but I would imagine that the proper way to dispose of a Koran is to burn it. (Analogously, it is the proper way to dispose of an American flag.)
I did find this entry in the Weekly Standard, inspired by an earlier Koran-burning story:
What’s the Proper Way to Dispose of a Koran?
Something to chew on.

Terry Jones may have called off his Koran burning in Florida, but Iraqpundit writes that someone still owes the preacher a debt of gratitude:
Burning the Koran is only respectful way of disposing of the Holy book. For example, if a student is learning calligraphy and copies pages from the Koran, he is not allowed to throw away the papers. He must burn them out of respect for the Koran. So actually the Florida man is doing the Muslims a favor by disposing of several copies of the Koran in a proper way.
This reminds me of when I was studying in Cairo several years ago and my doorman showed me another way to dispose of the sacred book properly:
[The doorman] discovered in my garbage an exam I had taken that tested knowledge of certain ayat (or verses) from the Quran, and he reproached me for putting the holy book in the trash. I said that it was not the Quran itself, but only words taken from it. His response was astonishing: “You can either burn your exam,” he explained, “or do this ” At which point, he tore off a verse, rolled it up, put it into his mouth, and swallowed it.
You know why the Mohammedans attack dead soldiers, don’t you? Too charlie sierra to attack live ones. They only attack weak or disarmed foes, women and children by preference.
Why would anyone be surprised if a Muslim sided with Muslim terrorists? Does the name Hussein give you enough of a hint?
Obama is a plant, a fake bought to play President and destroy America.
Could it happen here? Of course it could, isn’t it obvious?
These people are flipping insane.
All made possible by the great leadership of NATO.
I was going to express that exact same feeling of revulsion but you probably said it better.
FYI, nice two fer...
But I get and agree with ya’
...Obama to apologize to the Libyans for littering their beautiful land with infidel graves.
The only way we will defeat these monsters is to go on an all out-WWII type footing and attack and destroy any country harboring Islamic terrorists or supporting them.
Of course we will never do that so we probably will lose to them. These evil people have been so indoctrinated with the desire to murder that there is probably no saving them.
Make no mistake, these are vicious, fierce, deadly, killers. You cannot deal with them in any other way but destroy them and their base of support.
If we went all out we could do it but we won’t.
When the Lord returns to destroy the wicked, He may find the USMC in the way...
Thank you for your service and God Bless.
No, Yes, Yes and Yes it is now obvious to those who haven’t been paying attention.
