    Sorry you are going to keep skating around the issue. If you can't answer a straight question thats fine.

    Sorry, I must have missed that (though I am unsure where you exactly asked it or what bearing it has on the discussion): Well, I think Islam has many barbaric religious, practices that are still largely adhered to today, but that individual Muslims have no issue leaving such at the road side, and do so everyday. Also, many of the Muslims that I know, from the states, moved here to escape the influence of religion on politics. So tend to see no issue with what he did, and dismiss him as a crank

    To simplify: no, I see no problem with a person burning a book, because all are free to ignore him.

    Now you have told me what you think American Muslims think and that people are free to ignore him. I don't think we are getting anywhere here. But thanks.

    People are dead because of their culture permits extremism and encourages it. In Pakistan people literally want their children to become suicide bombers. No sane parent in the US tells the camera they want their little boy to grow like Charles Whitman.

    american christians don't murder people when jihadist scum burn American Flags or Bibles. In fact americans didn't go into murderous riots after 9-11

    face it, some people are undisciplined animals and need killing

    What did the Vietnam War protesters who raised the flag of North Vietnam while burning the American flag accomplish, other than tweaking Americans who fought for what it symbolized to them? I don't recall any returning servicemen going off and killing these a-holes, even if they might have felt they deserved it. Even pissing on a statue of George Washington didn't quite have the same effect. A protest of this sort only has meaning if it's tweaking someone else. And what good is a right if you can't exercise it?

    In the present circumstance, I wouldn't be surprised if Taliban insurgents used the cover of the protest as a means to infiltrate the UN compound in order to kill the staff. But even if that was not the case, what does the attack say about these Islamists? I found it hilarious that someone wrote earlier that the reverend was taunting terrorists. Really? I thought we were at war with these people, unless someone can explain to me how Hellfire missiles and Special Ops raids are making friends. Why bother playing nice when you're facing evil, and where's General Sheridan when you need him? ("The only good Indians I ever saw were dead.")

    I just wrote what I thought, and then added the perspective of some people I know. So I'm not sure what you are complaining about
