An Iranian and an Afghani burn a Koran. IN IRAN.

Now these guys have gonads of Teflon. Ill see if I can get a translation for titles. But the Washington Times says it was about their protest of all the nonsense the Islamic world does over this kind
of thing.

These two guys are my heroes.

Below, the Times explanation:

Two anonymous young men in Iran, one Iranian and one Afghan, have burned a Koran in protest. This seven-and-a-half minute long video shows the two men, their faces obscured, holding the Muslim holy book and reading prepared statements. Afterwards they stand the Koran on a flat rock, douse it alcohol and light it. One of them hoots and laughs. The book burns fiercely, and after a few moments one of them sprays more alcohol into the flames. The video ends with them warming their hands over the blazing book.

  1. There must be many other Muslims who are also fed up with the abnormal reverence bestowed on the koran, and are secretly applauding the action by the two men in the video.
    Maybe there is hope yet?…

  2. If this catches on in the Muslim world, you can bet that entire communities will be divided into two camps (here’s that theme again): those who see it as a book that has no feelings and is not alive, and those who see it as representative of their own identities and secretly fear that this means their lives are at risk when the books are destroyed.

    Islam has fostered such a dependence on this one collection of pages that hundreds of millions of Muslims cannot fathom that it is a mere book. To many it is life and death, honour and sustenance all rolled into one.

    At least Jews, Christians, Hindus and Buddhists, to name a few major religious players understand that people and their conduct matter more than a book. Many understand that what is derived from them is spiritual and transcends the physical pages. For generations, Hindus, for example, would not even write down their holy texts as it was thought that the living word of the guru was more important than the relatively inert and dead word on the page.

    Muslims who feel that their identity is utterly bound up in the pages of this book should really get a life. If that is all their ideology is about, then its pretty piss-poor.

    PS. Would it be wrong to market toilet paper with the k*r*n printed on it?

    Just asking…

  3. Dear RRWest,

    I think Koran toilet paper would be a good use for all the violent ‘sword’ verses in the Koran. Just read them and put them behind you.

    On the other hand, the burning of the Koran could be THE act of liberation PAR EXCELLENCE for apostasizing Muslims.

    Burning the Koran could become a final act of leaving Islam–the final act of defiance declaring what you say: ‘This is just a book written by humans and burning it proves that fact.’
