Burning the Koran – more of the same?

Posted on 13 September 2010

The ninth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks passed relatively quietly, with – as far as I know – no significant negative events reported. The Pastor Terry Jones, under pressure from various actors cancelled the planned Koran burning by members of his church in Florida. Though some countries experienced protests as a result of his plans, they have for the most part been peaceful.

However, in a disturbing new development, the Westboro Baptist Church of Topeka of Kansas, USA, has threatened that it will burn the Koran if Jones fails to do so.  They are apparently not affiliated with any major American Baptist groups.  They however already burned a Koran publicly in 2008, but the event fortunately failed to garner major media attention. It remains to be seen if they will follow through on this most recent threat. I hope someone stops them in time.

In a similar vein...
