    AT THE TIME, and even then, the ones that did know what was going on did not think it was justified, but they lived in a brutal police state that was intollerant of expression.

    Also there's a little something called the German Resistance that attempted on many occasions to kill Hitler.

    German resistance - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    But, we all know they weren't. Don't we?
    Indeed.

    But for such a heinous crime, we do often have to look at WHY they happened, so we can stop it from ever happening again.

    I think you'll find they've been offing more moderate Muslims than westerners for some time now. You don't participate in the demos and riots against the Koran burning, you're going on the list. Yes, they are going to be more of a target than ever.

    The real question should be... why does this Priest and his backers hate America and want to put American soldiers at even more risk?

    the reality is that muslims hate us because, to them, we are infidels. they will not hate us any more if this guy burns a quran, they will not hate us any less if he does not.

    this guy, however misguided he may be, has just as much right to burn a quran as some radical muslim has to burn a bible or the US flag.

    duh, no. you missed the point. just because I agree that someone has the "right" to do something, does not mean that I agree with them doing it.

    They would be condemning the terrorist actions as well as the people who committed them. I don't see a lot of this comming from the worldwide muslim community.
    Your observations are uniformly biased and wrong, so I'm not surprised.

    Im SURE the 'Moderate' Muslims will calm down all the radical extremists and stand in opposition to this kind of ridiculous response to cartoons or book burnings...

    good thing there is 'just a few' of those extremists. Man...Id hate to start posting some of the BAD videos...

    Dove World Outreach Centre + Burning Korans = Irony?

    What kind of outreach is this exactly?
    Doves can be pretty badass sometimes.
