An Australian lawyer tore pages from the Koran and the Bible and smoked them on YouTube, days after a US pastor's threat to burn Islam's holy book triggered deadly protests and global condemnation.
In a 12-minute clip entitled "Bible or Koran -- which burns best?" Alex Stewart, who belongs to an atheist group, holds up the Christian and Muslim holy books before tearing out pages and smoking them.
At one point he lights what looks like a joint rolled from a page from the Bible, leans back after inhaling heavily and says "Holy".
The video, which has been deleted, was posted on YouTube over the weekend, coinciding with the ninth anniversary of the September 11 attacks and coming after American pastor Terry Jones threatened to torch 200 copies of the Koran.

No, the extremists probably won't hate Australia... Seems like some folks seek out any reason to hate America and her people, while other places and besmirtchers remain exempt. *sigh*
