    Default 20 Killed, 2 Beheaded at Koran-Burning Protest



    UN workers killed in Afghan Koran protest
    Enraged over Florida Pastor Terry Jones Koran-burning armed protesters storm UN buildings in Northern Afghanistan.


    KABUL, Afghanistan — Thousands of protesters angry over the burning of a Koran by a Florida pastor stormed a United Nations compound Friday in northern Afghanistan, killing at least 12 people.

    Two UN workers were beheaded, Reuters reported. There were reports that the death toll was as high as 20.

    The demonstration in Mazar-i-Sharif turned violent when some protesters grabbed weapons from the UN guards and opened fire, then mobbed buildings and set fires on the compound, officials said. Demonstrators also massed in Kabul and the western city of Herat.

    The protest in Mazar-i-Sharif began when several hundred demonstrators gathered outside the UN mission's compound, choosing an obvious symbol of the international community's involvement in Afghanistan to denounce the Koran's destruction.

    It turned violent when some protesters seized the guards' weapons and started shooting, then the crowds stormed the building, sending plumes of black smoke into the air.

    Florida pastor Terry Jones and his obscure Dove World Outreach Center rose to notoriety last summer when he announced plans to burn the Koran on the ninth anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. The plan was widely denounced, and he initially canceled, only to go through with the act on March 20.


    The burning drew little press coverage in the United States but made headlines in parts of the Middle East.



    In a statement Friday, Jones called the killings “a very tragic and criminal action.”

    “The United States government and the United Nations itself, must take immediate action,” he said. “Muslim dominated countries can no longer be allowed to spread their hate against Christians and minorities. They must alter the laws that govern their countries to allow for individual freedoms and rights, such as the right to worship, free speech, and to move freely without fear of being attacked or killed.”



    US President Barack Obama condemned the attack "in the strongest possible terms", while UN chief Ban Ki-Moon said it was "an outrageous and cowardly attack against UN staff which cannot be justified under any circumstances".

    This is how I would handle the Muslim world:

    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    Emperor Brett - "I can't believe you guys are analyzing song-by-song Van Halen III? What next, analyzing the script of Stroker Ace looking for some shred of Citizen Kane?"

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    This dick bag is not even smart enough to realize it was his hate spreading against Muslims that got these people killed.

    The blood is on his hands too.

    You're dealing with un-rational savages at best, why do you think provoking them would lead to ANY other outcome. They only understand religion as way of life and not a concept. So when you insult them, they get pissed off.

    It doesn't make it right, but that's what happens. So now 12 people are dead because that asshole had to provoke the Muslim world.

    Its assholes vs assholes. Ten years and a few trillion spent in Afganastan,Iraq and now Libya with thousands of US lives and nothing has changed. Get out now. As far as this Florida pastor goes hes a nut too. This situation is a no win for both sides and the free world plus the Russians and Chinese will have to deal with this as a whole some day but the slaughter will be unimaginable.These same folks will not hesitate to use a nuke when they get it. It will pale to WW2.

    Fucking depressing...just hope we're not going to arm the rebel Libyans like we did the Afganis in the 80s and then end up having waste more lives with them

    And what a douche this Pastor is...really helping the situation...reminds me of those Westboro Church A-holes

    Sad that innocent people were killed over something they had absolutely nothing to do with.

    I'm not saying that dipshit pastor deserved to be killed but at least if he was you'd kind of be able to see the A-B correlation since it was he who burned the Koran not those UN workers.

    Wonder if he would have burned it had he been in the Middle East as opposed to the US. Shithead.

    ...and here you have a big example of why many of us refuse to get behind stupid ideas like "Draw Muhammad Day" - yeah, it may be your constitutional right to "draw Muhammad", but these people don't give a shit, and if they can't get to you to kill you, they're more than happy to kill 20 people in your stead. And I don't want to be one of those 20 people killed 'cause you felt you had to exercise your constitutional right. Some things are worth dying for, cartoons of Muhammad aren't among them.

    It's a pity. We have such potential as a race. We could be so much more than we are. Yet most of the planet continues to allow religious insecurities rule their mindset. Killing one another in the name of imaginary beings and warped dogma.

    Well said. Even though I do believe it's complete and utter lunacy to want to kill somebody for drawing a cartoon of your god or for burning your holy book.

    And I do believe that it is our/their right to be able to draw a cartoon or burn a book, if they want to. But there has to be a little voice in their heads saying, "There are Americans over in Afghanistan right now. If I burn this book, who are these crazy fucks going to target? Me or the people who are right on their doorstep?"
