Here's my take on this whole mess:
1. The pastor has the right to buy a book (any book) and burn it in America.
2. The pastor knew this act, if made known, would anger people around the world. He wanted this exact effect, which is why he filmed his act and put
it on youtube (as opposed to taking the batteries out of his smoke detector in his bedroom and burning the book there, for example).
3. The people angered by this act took out their anger on the wrong people (assuming that their anger was about this book burning by this pastor;
other threads have stated other possible reasons and that this is only an excuse).
Personally, I think this guy is a coward. If he had any courage, he would have went to the country in question and burned the book in the middle of
the people's town square.
Then they could have taken their anger out on him directly, and all would be (semi-) right in the world.
