Lawrence Auster describes why people burn Korans. He writes:
What is the message of the Koran burners? It is, very simply: “We reject the vicious and evil ideology of Islam.” This is a very positive development. Once people recognize that the Koran is the problem, they have gone beyond the “moderate Islam” / “radical Islam” distinction which paralyzes true thought on the subject. They are recognizing that Islam itself is the problem.I couldn't have said it better myself.
Auster also linked to this blog that shows numerous Koran burnings for the 9/11 anniversary. Note the first graphic that comes up -- it's a graphic I created a couple of years ago. Good to see that some people find it useful.
