Inspired by Haji's comment about riots in Bagram and this news story about burning Korans:|
If you were in Afghanistan:
1. If someone gave you bags of books with funny Arabic writing on the covers, and told you to burn them, would you?
2. If you knew the books were Korans, would you still burn them?
3. Is it ever a good idea to burn books that are still in readable condition?
ETA: Since several people were offended, I wish to state that the comment about "funny Arabic writing" is sarcasm, meant to point out the provincialism of most Amurikans, who think there is one holy book and it is written in English (American), and that funny writing, well, if you want to be understood, just don't use it ... this loses a lot when you have to explain it ... sorry about that, but I hope this clears up any doubts anyone may have on that phrase.
