Skip to comments.Anger over Quran burning spreads in Afghanistan

KABUL, Afghanistan -Anger over the burning of the Muslim holy book at a Florida church fueled a second day of deadly violence half a world away in Afghanistan, where demonstrators set cars and shops ablaze Saturday in a riot that killed nine protesters, officials said.
The church's desecration of the Quran nearly two weeks ago has outraged millions of Muslims and others worldwide, fueling anti-American sentiment that is further straining ties between the Afghan government and the West.
The uproar even brought violence to the normally peaceful city of Mazar-i-Sharif in northern Afghanistan on Friday, where a crowd of protesters apparently infiltrated by insurgents stormed a U.N. compound in an outpouring that left four Afghan protesters and seven foreign U.N. employees dead.

Hell hole of demonic people.
Let’s get it started! Next FRIDAY everyone in America stand in your driveway or go to the nearest busy corner and burn a koran.......let’s have 300,000,000 participate. Call all the news outlets.
I’m sick to death of these people and their stupid protests and riots. Why do we capitulate every time????? I’m sick to death of appeasing the muslims. You can’t even give away a bible in their armpit countries.....
You’d be killed for HAVING a Bible in their armpit countries.
Burn more of them. Make the insane murder cultists show their satanic core.
renee...right...I understated the reality!
Burning Korans? Know yourself out. A more constructive solution is to demand that we bring American troops home from this hellhole NOW
Has anyone seen Islamic Rage Boy lately?
We should’ve just vaporized Afghanistan in 2001 and forgot about it.
Yes! And its not to late.
How many Christian churches have been burned by muslims, and how many Christians around the world beheaded for being Christians?
My son is currently in Afghanistan with the Marine Corps. I’m not even supposed to send him PORK PRODUCTS FOR HIS OWN CONSUMPTION. Like I give a shit about their “religious” views while he’s over their “protecting” them.
I’d burn a koran if I wanted to waste the money buying it, or frequenting the type of place that would sell them.
I submit that what is claimed as violence due to that Koran burning, is a fiction conjured up by the enemedia. IOW, it could be over anything, likely it is manufactured rage and the enemedia is gratuitously blaming a Koran burning on this.
I smell something dirty coming from the Department of Hate.
Like many, I’m sick and tired of screaming mobs of ‘offended’ Muslims threatening and/or committing havoc based on some alleged outrage that involves their satanic ‘religion’. They use any excuse to kill and destroy, killing Christians and even other Muslims - for specious reasons. Savages - led by the Prince of the Air. Let them wallow in their tribal hatred and murder each other in that pit called Afghanistan.
Every time I see one of these a-holes in my town I burn with anger. I wear my Infidel T-shirt when I can and stare them down. What else can we do to rid our country of these demons?
Touchy, ain’t they?
Burnings should continue until morale improves.
A more fitting solution is to not sell them ANY FOOD.
Let the moosie retards starve to death.
Bomb the Kabah and end the whole thing.
An example of religious tolerance among the Muslims. Islam needs to grow up.
I wonder if we could somehow drop the Japan Reactors on Mecca?
Let’s all burn a quoran?
Don’t believe in burning books, even garbage boo0ks./
And keep our troops there at the same time to be put in harm’s way?
Ever clear your browser cache? Same thing. Hope you have many terabytes of storage to keep all that. Or are you just about symbolism?
I read and article today by an aid worker in Afghanistan, who said it’s time for them to leave. That person’s point was that this was a mob of regular unarmed villagers who attacked, not the Taliban or a warlord’s henchmen. The weapons that they got were taken from their first victims, the UN guards. He stated if we now have to open fire on unarmed protesters in order to adequately protect themselves, it’s time to go.
We should get these aid groups out of harm’s way and then change the rules of engagement. The mullahs have been allowed to have it easy. They whip up their people and send them out to kill others and/or die in suicide attacks. Meanwhile, the Mullah’s stay safely behind. The new ROE should simply be that every Mullah who incites violence is to be treated as a terrorist in that war zone and as such, killed within a very short period of time afterwards, either by a Spec Ops “A Team” sniper, Predator drone missile or a GPS bomb dropped from 20,000 feet, or some other munition suitable to the occasion. If they incite violence from the mosque, it’s to be no longer treated as a place of worship, but as a military or terrorist command structure and taken out. If these ROEs were put into place, I have a feeling that we’d quickly find the Mullahs to be far less talkative with a corresponding drop in violence. That said, we must never forget what this religion is all about and protect ourselves accordingly.
There are US troops in harm’s way over there. I wouldn’t back down, per se, but before you do something, think about the possible consequences to American servicemen and women. They’ve got a tough enough job as is.
Maybe we can desensitize them by burning Korans every Friday for say 30 years.
Yeah, but every time it happens (and it happens often) all moooooderate Muslims apologize for their fellow believers in a peaceful street protest.
When aren’t muslims in full rage mode? They rage over, music, movies, pork products, women in short skirts, booze... basically all he makings of a fun party.
Muslims will go out and kill infidels at the drop of a hat.
Burning Korans, Danish cartoons, Dutch filmmakers...oh, any old thing.
We are ready for them here.
Nuke the entire site from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.
Meanwhile NOTHING is done about muslim swine enslaving christians in Sudan....NOTHING is done about the attackes by muslims on Coptic Christians in Egypt...NOTHING is done about muslim laws in arab countries where Christianity will be met with death...Oh, no, we MUST rage and burn and behead because someone somewhere burned the quran.
Please thank you son for me. I appreciate his brave service. I pray he will return safely to your arms.
I have an IDEA that will save us money, and help solve the problem.
Instead of dropping bombs, cruise missiles, or food, and sending them MONEY, why don't we just airdrop tons of KORANS (without parachutes) ????? Much cheaper than a missile, and how could they complain? Several tons of Korans on a pallet will smash a house pretty quickly.
Seventh century people registering a seventh century complaint in a seventh century manner - that’s the totality of it. In this modern world, they are children; children throwing tantrums but children nonetheless.
Unless we are willing to fight in Afghanistan for as many years as we have peacefully been in Germany, or more, we need to leave now.
No. Unless you make a Bacon and Sausage bomb.
Better is : Send in the special forces. STEAL The meteor, and carve it in to women's toilets. Put them in use.
No kidding. A twig snaps and they fly into a rage. What gets me is that they always wind up killing each other when they riot. Talk about a ridiculous bunch of people.
LOL -- post of the day.
This pastor is a strange guy.
That said, riots half a world away from a bunch of nuts that are killing each other because some guy here with a church the size of a Burger King (if that) says he burned a book - it’s NOT the pastors fault.
The religion is a nutty religion that brings death and insanity wherever it becomes prevalent. And it’s time people started putting blame where it belongs.
You know, I think you are right.
They are killing EACH OTHER over this burning of one book over here.
If we burn a giant stack of them, will they blow themselves up and help us all out?
ditto.....esp on killing each other over every little thing.
I suggest we send food over there spiked with prozac- to calm these fellahs down
Time to end the war there. Keep just enough troops and equipment close by, to allow the Jihadis to be blown to bits when they get too organized.
I say pull all the troops out of Afghanistan, cut off all aid and let these insane nitwits kill themselves. Do it with the next warning that any terrorists out of their backward ass hat Country will have to clean up the glass.
Why are we fighting these clowns? Just have each of our soldiers burn a koran and the muzzies will off themselves in rage.
Not in to symbolism,
Just have seen book burning and that is simply trying to supress thoughts and that is ignorant.
I may not like the Koran or porn or lots of other things.
Doesn;t mean I care for you are someone else or some damn gub mint telling me what I can read or think.
But hey, if you are in to that kind of stuff?
