HeraldSun: Two top Iranian clerics said anyone desecrating the Koran must be killedTopics: Understanding Islam
Let's be clear. These Muslim clerics are calling for people to be killed over the simple act of burning what in reality amounts to nothing more than an 'effing' book.
Whatever Muslims want to call it and whatever significance they chose to place on it - it's still really nothing more than a collection of words on bound paper - certainly not worth taking a human life over. Christians revere and cherish the bible, but no Christian would value it over human life.
And although personally I'm not in favor of anyone wasting their time in burning a koran, and would argue against it out of principle (it's simply not a Christian thing to do), still - value for value a human life is worth more than the 'effing' book.
Only Islamists could believe otherwise, and their violent reaction to the burning of a koran tells us much about their fitness and worthiness for inclusion and assimilation in Western culture and society.
