UK: Six Men Arrested For Burning Korans
"Britons arrested for Qur'an burning," from the QMI Agency, September 23:
'Six men in England have been arrested after two Qur'ans were burned and video of the Sept. 11 act was posted online.
Four men were arrested Wednesday and two men had been arrested Sept. 15 on "suspicion of stirring racial hatred," a Northumbria police press release said....'
What race is Islam again?
Police and Gateshead council issued a joint statement about the burning, saying it is not how most people in the town feel or act.
"The kind of behaviour displayed in this video is not at all representative of our community as a whole. Our community is one of mutual respect and we continue to work together with community leaders, residents and people of all faiths and beliefs to maintain good community relations," the statement said.'
Great. When will see that "mutual respect" reciprocated?
