Yes, it's reckless of him to do it, but still, it seems if they didn't have a Terry Jones they would have to make up something, ie. cartoons, to get their panties twisted in a knot. Burning the Koran is bad but killing innocent human beings is good...What kind of thought process is this?
Fridays incident began when three mullahs, addressing worshippers at Friday prayers inside the Blue Mosque here, one of Afghanistans holiest places, urged people to take to the streets to agitate for the arrest of Terry Jones, the Florida pastor who oversaw the burning of a Koran on March 20. Otherwise, said the most prominent of them, Mullah Mohammed Shah Adeli, Afghanistan should cut off relations with the United States. Burning the Koran is an insult to Islam and those who committed it should be punished, he said.
The crowd some carrying signs reading Down with America and Death to Obama poured into the streets and swelled the governor of Balkh Province, Atta Mohammad Noor, later put the number at 20,000
The mob also burned down part of the United Nations compound, toppled guard towers and heaved blocks of cement down from the walls. The victims were killed by weapons that the demonstrators had wrestled away from the United Nations guards, according to Mr. Noor
...Jones is a moron but no one should defend these fanatics by blaming him. I have a feeling our MSM will do just that tho...as they have done in the past. It is shear lunacy to be held hostage by the followers of Islam. We can burn our flag, a bible, and pretty much anything else but if someone burns a Koran we should shake in fear.
THAT is terrorism and we shouldn't cave to it.

I can’t believe we still have troops in this sewer Afghanistan. These backwards primatives aren’t worth another American life-—they aren’t worth the ones already sacrificed. Control the place from the air. If Al Qaeda moves back in, Moab their camps. If the Taliban take over, Moab their capital. Enough wasting blood and treasure on a country stuck in the 15th century and just teaming with a bunch of sub human savages.
Friday is very bad days for countries where Muslim population is more than 15%. After Friday prayer, Muslims just riot. Fully pumped by Imams inside Mosque.
Oh whatever, it could be a post right here on FR that could set these people off for all we know.
Also, it would be nice if the UN would actually try to do something to defend their people and set an example. Why do you think this mob didn’t try to attack US Marines?
What was their excuse for killing people before Jones?
“Yes, it’s reckless of him to do it....”
Why? Have we become so scared of Islam?
Had he burned a Bible, it would not even have been reported.
Why is the newspaper blaming this on Jones. These Muslims are just plain crazy.
The Saudi government seizes OTHER peoples Christian Bibles and burns them every year.
Our pro-Islamist president is silent over this human rights abuse.
The headline ought to be...
Muslims acting predictably barbaric.
The victims were killed by weapons that the demonstrators had wrestled away from the United Nations guards, according to Mr. Noor
I must have missed the story of how many Muslims got killed while taking away the UN guards weapons. Can you fill me in?
If Pastor Jones wants to burn a koran to highlight the evil cult, they will kill to prove him right.
I haven’t seen that story either.
Mosque are target rich friday’s.. we will see how long it takes folks to get tired of them...Islam for the dead by the dead..
No, it’s not reckless of him to do it.
