You do understand that "America" didn't burn the Koran, right? You do understand it was one extremist wacko who has been denounced by everyone from the President to the Generals in Afghanistan?

So, if someone spits in your face it's okay to kill them? That doesn't strike you as a bit over the top? Actually a better comparison would be you spit in my face so I go kill some Nepalese guy down the street because he's not from here so he obviously supports the actions of every single other person who's not from here. A bit insane, no?

Absolutely not. I am in no way personally condoning the killings or behaviour as they do not represent my beliefs. I am merely pointing out why they have reacted so. I should have made that more clear.

I do realise America didn't burn the Koran. But in regards to past racial conflict they don't do themselves any favour.

But it sounds like you're making excuses for their behavior. I don't care if someone hurt their feelings by burning their holy book, they are absolutely unjustified in murdering innocent people and they should be, at the very least, jailed for it. They deserve no sympathy.

Well like I said, the guy in question has been renounced at the highest levels of government and by a huge percentage of the populace. I'm not sure what else could be done beyond that.

It's not an excuse, it's their way of thinking. Which is very different from the Western worlds. You can't argue with their side of things, just disagree with it.

And to think... people warned him not to do it and predicted something similar to this might happen. Does this justify killing seven people over a silly book? Of course not, but he knew what he was getting into.

He was warned not just by Americans but by the Muslims themselves, that actions would be taken if he was to follow through. So he was very sure of what he was doing. I just can't believe how unnecessary this has all been. He is everything a Christian shouldn't be. He's not loving, forgiving or accepting of others. He persecutes others for having another faith than Christianity and in the modern world that is incredibly wrong.

I would never associate myself with people like him.

I don't believe that the murderers in this situation are representative of Muslims as a whole or of Afghans as a whole.

Oh no not at all. They are not all extremists. But it doesn't mean a lot of Muslims aren't angry right now without acting out in that manner.

one thing i really like about the Quran is one of the lines that goes something like "if your ho gets out of line, exercise your pimp hand"
