    This kind of hate exists in every country, including your own, and is offered against many different targets.

    When do you plan on speaking up when the hatred is directed at something other than Islam -- especially when such hatred is acted upon through the use of terrorism or exhibited by a signifigant percentage of the population rather than being limited to a few nutjobs? Odd, but I have yet to read you ever speaking out about that.

    As a matter of fact, yes it is. Didn't Mommy ever teach you that two wrongs don't make a right? Or perhaps you are one of those people that think we as a Nation should lower our standards and become just like those we rail against. I disagree, I think we are better than that and I'm sorry you have such a low opinion of the USA.

Why don't Muslims just tolerate him and realize that most Americans aren't like that dumbass. When are we going to be shown tolerance? I don't see many Muslims bending over backwards to condemn Islamic terrorists who want to kill us. This kook just wants to burn some books. He should be ignored.
    This is exactly what I wrote about earlier. Damn I love history.

    Eventually, big conflicts evolve because people stop seeking the individuals to hate and start seeing the civilization to hate. They way you and many Americans feel about their apathy towards their radicals/extremists is how they feel towards us. How many Westerners rose up and spoke against Danish cartoons? Or how many even cared about 12 years of Iraq containment? And now morons are celebrating the burning of Qur'ans with little protest. How can we expect their civilization to rise up against offenses towards us when we don't do it for them?

    Its always the fanatics that start the blood shed and it is their civlizations that get pulled into their hatreds. Did all of Europe want to go to war over a single assassins bullet? Or again over a single man's vision of a perfect Germany? And how many Israelis andPalesitnians get pulled into ongoing bloodshed because a fanatic or two waits in the peace talk wings to remind people that hate is wonderful?

    We may see this insiginificant book burning exercise as a "right" of the moron, but make no mistake, these morons are simple fanatics. They burn to feel good about their hate and to ignite hate elsewhere. Nothing more. The same kind of fanatics that can engineer a sniper's righteous mission or an abortion clinic's nightmare. Somewhere in the Middle East someone will dream of revenge from watching the Qu'rans on a pire. And where will that lead?

    This is why identified fanatics should be put to death before they can cause damage. It's either them or it's the masses they suck in.

    Book burning isn't easy. You pretty much have to rip the pages out first. I have seen thermite used to destroy electronics inside a steel case, but the same thermite on a phone book did very little damage....

    Books are not what needs to be burned, it is those who misuse the books that need to be "burned".

    How do you stop the preacher from burning the Koran? Easy. Just threaten to burn a Bible in retaliation.

    That is a naive point of view.

    You are wrong in more than one way.

    Only if we decide that we too want to "clearly have no morals," do we act "like Bin Laden and Amadinajihad." As Mahatma Gandhi said, "An eye for an eye, leaves the whole world blind."

    And to pretend that this hate-mongering fool in Floriduh is somehow taking a shot at just terrorists and not an entire significant sector of the world's population, is blatantly and deliberately false.

    Just a quick note to let you all know that my gardening club is holding a "compost the Koran" workshop today at 3, and you are all invited to attend.
