The Associated Press: Afghans protest US church's plans to burn Quran

Afghans protest US church's plans to burn Quran

KABUL, Afghanistan — Hundreds of Afghans railed against the United States and called for President Barack Obama's death at a rally in the capital Monday to denounce an American church's plans to burn the Islamic holy book on Sept. 11.

The crowd in Kabul, numbering as many as 500, chanted "Long live Islam" and "Death to America" as they listened to fiery speeches from members of parliament, provincial council deputies, and Islamic clerics who criticized the U.S. and demanded the withdrawal of foreign troops from the country. Some threw rocks when a U.S. military convoy passed, but speakers shouted at them to stop and told police to arrest anyone who disobeyed.

The Gainesville, Florida-based Dove World Outreach Center announced plans to burn copies of the Quran on church grounds to mark the ninth anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, but has been denied a permit to set a bonfire. The church, which made headlines last year after distributing T-shirts that said "Islam is of the Devil," has vowed to proceed with the burning.

"We know this is not just the decision of a church. It is the decision of the president and the entire United States," said Abdul Shakoor, an 18-year-old high school student who said he joined the protest after hearing neighborhood gossip about the Quran burning.

Religion of peace my ass. :rolleyes:

And right now we have US militarymen and women dieing for these people. :cort:

It's weird that they think Obama has direct control over some random church in Florida. Is that due to Afghanistan having a rather authoritarian government? That church is not exactly being peaceful either. Burning Qurans seems like a stunt thought up by a used car salesman.

I am for anything that pisses off Muslims, even cartoons.

They should deep fry them in pig fat as far as I'm concerned, just like us Christians get treated but then we DON'T bomb things.

Not that this is a good thing, two wrongs don't make a right, but I am all for antagonizing those so-called oppressed people, screw em!!

Damn stupid thing to do at a time like this. Interesting to place it alongside the plans for the 9/11 mosque though; wonder how many people will support one but not the other.

Believing that the Obama Administration went out of its way to arrange this Quran burning event in a random American church is sort of ridiculous, but it's no surprise that a lot of Afghan citizens would have an irrational hatred of the US government. I think the real problem lies with the "members of parliament, provincial council deputies, and Islamic clerics" using this incident to stir up hatred against US troops.

Absolutely. Both sides are being retarded about this and the Christian church is instigating a response like this. Not very Christian at all. If you're going to publicize burning the holy book of another group, expect a response. And I'm sure this is exactly what they expected and wanted.

Also, a group of 500 protesters is tiny. I could get more than that protesting stuff here for something far less interesting. Wouldn't put much stock in this being representative of the Afghani people as a whole.
