KABUL, Afghanistan — Two Afghans died in a remote area of eastern Afghanistan on Sunday when the police fired into a crowd protesting the planned burning of the Koran in Florida, a day after the burning had been called off.
The Afghan crowd chanted anti-American slogans, including “death to Americans,” “death to Obama,” and “death to Jews.”
“Afghans fought for 30 years against Communism and during mujahedeen time and Afghans are ready to die for their religion and customs and traditions,” said Maulavi Qalamuddin, a former Taliban member from Baraki-e-Barak, who spent nearly seven years in detention at Bagram Airbase. “Whenever someone does something against their values and religion they are quick to anger.”

Have they not been informed that the ridiculous Koran burning was cancelled?
Have they not been informed that President Obama and his administration have been vocally against it?
Have they not been informed that "the Jews" had nothing to do with this planned act?
