Has it come to this? International “Burn the Stars and Stripes Day.” What good will come of any of this?

So because of a loon church of 30+ and the massive media attention that gave him a soapbox, we have come to this~
A radical Islamic activist and lawyer in the U.K. has called on Muslims worldwide to burn U.S. flags outside American embassies on Sept. 11, a “direct retaliation” against a Florida church’s plan to burn Qurans on the same day.

Anjem Choudary, former leader of the banned hardline Islamic group Islam4UK, told CBS News in London he was calling for, “an international burn the Stars and Stripes day” on the anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

  • This isn't new. Rage at others for religious reasons has been happening forever. It will never stop until the world stops. It is sad but it really isn't something that can be controlled it seems. Try as we might = no conclusion whatsoever. In my personal opinion I don't think extremists have any sense of religion or fear of God because if they did they would realize the Bible does not preach to spread hate as they often do.

  • Right, because before that idiot in Florida radicals never burned the flag or flew a plane into a building or committed one terrorist act against this country. Only a psychopath would spout the garbage these groups do and this is just one more piece of fact to support that, especially considering he is calling for it on the day that 3000 Americans were murdered in a terrorist attack.

  • Absolutely ridiculous. Grown people are acting like they are 3. "If you stomp on my toy, I'll stomp on yours!"

  • Can everyone just stop burning everything already!?!? Air pollution and wildfires have to be stopped! Isn't that the real issue here that will benefit everyone? *lame attempt at humor*

  • It is reminiscent of a toddler temper tantrum. I never advocated for the FL preacher that was going to burn the Quran, nor would I advocate for any idiot that wants to burn a flag to prove a point. What's next? Just so immature and childish. Of course it's their constitutional right, but that doesn't mean it's a good idea.

  • They are trying to get our ire up. don't let them. Show them that we are the better people because we live our values instead of killing people to prove our values.

  • Hundreds of angry Afghans burned an American flag and chanted “Death to the Christians” on Thursday to protest plans by a small American church to torch copies of the Muslim holy book on the anniversary of the Sept. 11 terror attacks.

    Local officials in Mahmud Raqi, the capital of the Kapisa province some 100 kilometers (60 miles) northeast of Kabul, estimated that up to 4,000 people took part in the protest. But NATO spokesman James Judge said the protest numbered between 500 to 700 people.
