How Many Holy Books Were Burned?

Dear Editor

Before I go on with the letter let me make it clear that I deplore the burning of the Koran by Rev. Terry Jones or by any other nutcase that engages in the destruction of things that are worshiped by others.

An extremist in Florida publicly sets fire to a Koran and Muslims go on a rampage killing and beheading people that had nothing to do with the desecrating act of a singular nutcase.

The president of Afghanistan, Hamid Karzai, demands of the United States to bring the Koran burner to justice.

I wonder how many Christian Holy Bibles, Jewish sacred Scrolls, churches, synagogues and shrines of other faiths were burned by those who riot and kill while worshiping the Koran.

Did President Karzai or any Muslim leader bring to justice any of those who commit acts of desecration that result in incinerating Christian Bibles, Torah Scrolls and places and things that are sacred to others?

Is there no one to see the absurdity and chutzpa of those who insult, maim and kill just for the sake of killing?
