    Sensitivity is the answer...for both sides.
    I agree that people should be sensitive to other people's beliefs. You shouldn't burn a Bible, Koran, etc. but it also shouldn't be illegal.

    It isn't violent. It might be considered offensive. That is all. The reaction to such things is what you should be condemning.

    Unless of course you think that burning a book is deserving of death.

    What are you talking about? Are you actually excusing murder?

    Best not !
    Both parties, rather than praying and burning should be studying the words respect and sensitivity.

    When this is held close to the heart:

    "Believers, if you yield to the infidels they will drag you back to unbelief and you will return headlong to perdition. . . .We will put terror into the hearts of the unbelievers. . . . The Fire shall be their home" (3:149-51).

    or this:

    "Those that deny Our revelation We will burn in fire. No sooner will their skins be consumed than We shall give them other skins, so that they may truly taste the scourge. God is mighty and wise" (4:55–56).

    or this:

    "[We] shall let them live awhile, and then shall drag them to the scourge of the Fire. Evil shall be their fate" (2:126).

    and the instructions are this:

    "Fighting is obligatory for you, much as you dislike it. But you may hate a thing although it is good for you, and love a thing although it is bad for you. God knows, but you know not" (2:216).


    then such a response is certainly understandable.
