Quran burns in Iran. Crickets chirp in Afghanistan


Two anonymous young men in Iran, one Iranian and one Afghan, have burned a Koran in protest. This seven-and-a-half minute long video shows the two men, their faces obscured, holding the Muslim holy book and reading prepared statements. They say that Arabs have foisted this book and their homelands and because of it they have gone backwards for 1400 years. They say they dislike the Koran and want it to disappear, adding “Viva freedom!”

You notice that these two men were not stupid.
It is a death penalty offense to ”desecrate” a Koran in Iran.
As the Time Magazine World Editor Bobby Ghosh said on Hardball on MSNBC, the Koran is not like the Bible which is a book written by men.
[T]he Koran is directly the word of God, not written by man.


@Nan G: Sure, sure.

@atti: (For Nan) That is, “sure, sure, the koran is the word of god.” Lower case intended.

@blogforce one: It went out on my address book. Thanks. It was/is great.
