The pastor who burned the Quran is a total jackass who feels no guilt about the UN workers who were killed in Afghanistan, but the scenes of those Muslim mobs demonstrating violently for a second day, simply because an idiot in Florida with a very small congregation burned a copy of their "holy" book, really makes me happy to be an atheist.

They follow their interpretation, they use it like a swiss army knife, folding out which ever tool fits their current agenda.

While I know much less about muslims, I suspect they are much the same, after all there are the peaceful moderate ones, and the hate filled fringe, again all from one book, so they must also practice very free interpretations to suit their agenda.

The only "religion of peace" respondent cites a verse from their holy book?

Is this the best response to the OP that you can come up with? How do you, as a Muslim feel about the violence and killings committed following news of the moronic pastor that burned the Quran? Do you think it is justified or not?

Thousands of Islamic extremists have gone on the rampage in Ethiopia burning dozens of churches and the homes of Christians, according to Compass Direct News. Islamic extremists burn churches in Ethiopia | Christian News on Christian Today

I have searched the news and have not found a single Muslim condemning these actions, but many condemning the Florida pastor, including a call for his death...

I'm still waiting patiently for a response from the Muslims on this forum.
i condemn the terrorism and extremists
all muslims condemns islamic extremists in general as every one condemns extremists of every relegion

extrmist acts not justified by anyone

Very nice, but your link does not address the violence in response to the Quran burning...So far I have not seen any condemnation of these acts by any Muslim organization, but I've seen lots that condemn the act of Terry Jones.

So far my search for this condemnation has turned up nothing...Your fellow peaceful Muslims are eerily quiet.

Where is the outrage over the burning of the book? I think we saw it manifested already.

Terry Jones sees no problem with having done so...I wonder if he'd be as dismissive if someone burned a Bible in front of him. Or if he would turn violent in response.

If he did, should he be condemned for doing so? Moderator cut: Inappropriate language

Terry Jones has certainly been condemned...Read the news...Call my momma whatever you want...Don't worry I won't hit you...Calling someone a name does not give anyone an excuse for violence...I learned that in kindergarten....Were you absent that day?

Are you trying to equate the burning of a book with the taking of lives and be-headings?

Yes, it does give the excuse for violence, and I wouldn't condemn anyone who became violent in response to being PROVOKED. I will condemn the person doing the provoking though.

I've also found that violence is a very good solution, through my own life experiences. It only takes one good beating for people to leave you alone as you asked them to.
