“Iran military official: Only burning White House can make up for burning Koran”
As long as Obama is rushing to accommodate and appease these irrational fanatics, someone better make sure he doesn’t get close to any matches, lighters or gasoline cans in the White House tonight.
The incitement only works when infidels do it:
Imagine the rioting andÂ sniveling apologiesÂ if an infidel were to use the Koran forÂ toilet paper. Yet Muslims in Pakistan seem to be doing just that. They must be getting tired ofÂ using their hands; how else do so many Koran pages wind upÂ in the sewer?Â Â (Moonbattery)
Essentially, they appear to be looking at the irrational and lethal fit of anger gripping Afghanistan and sayingÂ “Look at what you made us do!”
There is no sense of personal responsibility or free will not to throw a tantrum, more or less as if one had poked a beehive with a stick. Therein lies a fundamental source of instability, and therefore, poverty in Afghanistan and elsewhere: wrath and pride made sacrosanct.
No one will build or invest if it’s all just going to go up in flames the next time someone gets insulted.
By terming the incident “incitement,” the enemies of free speech at theÂ OICÂ signal their likelihood to leverage it in its supremacist jihad against freedom of speech, expression, and conscience. “OIC Condemns Quran Burning by US Troops in Afghanistan,” from Iran’sÂ Fars News Agency, February 24 (thanks toÂ The Religion of Peace):
Looks like the terrorists didn’t respect their ‘holy books’ either:

TEHRANÂ (FNA)- Secretary-General of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu deplored the burning of the Holy Quran by the US forces in Afghanistan, and called for swift action to punish those responsible forthe provocative act.In a statement on Thursday, Ihsanoglu described the incident as a “deplorable act ofÂ incitement”,Â and said that the act runs “contrary to the common efforts of theOICÂ and that of the international community …to combat intolerance, andincitementÂ to hatred based on religion and belief.”
The statement also called on “the concerned authorities to take swift and appropriate disciplinary action against those responsible.”
Also on Thursday, US President Barack Obama sent a letter to his Afghan counterpart, apologizing for the acts of desecration.
The developments came as anti-US demonstrations are underway across Afghanistan over the burning of the Holy Quran at the US Airbase.
Media reports said that at least twenty AfghansÂ have been killedÂ since the beginning of protests on Tuesday.
Note the use of passive voice to sidestep discussion of how they died.
