Isn’t it interesting that they chose to burn a FLAG, not a BIBLE to proclaim their ‘Death to the Christians’ bit. Sorry, Afghanistan, but the US Flag does not represent Christianity. — PID
KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) -– 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.
