Islamists rampage British WWII cemetery in Libya


www.dailymail.co.uk

A furious mob has desecrated dozens of Commonwealth War Graves in a Libyan cemetery amid continuing fury in the Middle East over the burning of the Koran by U.S. soldiers.
Headstones commemorating British and Allied servicemen, killed during World War II campaigns in the Western Desert, lay smashed and strewn across Benghazi Military Cemetery.
Protesters rampaged through site on Friday, despite efforts by America to calm tensions sparked when it emerged U.S. soldiers had burned Muslim holy books in a pile of rubbish at a military base in Afghanistan

This is unacceptable. Just because someone accidentally burned BOOKS of PAPER, people were KILLED..

This is insanity... This is eventually going to lead to another religious war.. you all know its true.. you can feel it.

Islam teachings have a MUCH higher chance of creating fanatical ideals. It's science fact. The way they are taught, the practices and such...

It's kept their Countries 2000 years in the past too..
If they kill another American over this accidental burning, the US Armed forces need to unleash hell on these killers...

And Desecrating British Gravestones that have been there for a long time.. What kind of filth and evil does that??

I looked for your link and couldnt find the relevant story.

Was there footage of the incident? or was it assumed that it was Islamists, we have had graves desicrated by youths thinking vandalizing is fun, because the graves where from early settlers, do we assume it was the native population that did it for revenge about being colonized?

Why are they even attacking a Brit cemetery when it's US troops they are offended by?

I guess I'll just burn a koran for every damaged headstone I see

Some will come and tell you that they are not really muslims.

So your anger is directed at a small minority of people deluded by hate and confusing it with faith.

it happens every time someone offends islam.

I say this is true islam, and those who practice taqiyya are the munafiq. They seethe just as much, but hide it to stay within the lie.

But this is just my opinion, and well, always seems to get people angry. lol

Either way, whoever did this has no real faith in their heart. Absolutely not.

How many Libyans did the Brits help kill in their last NATO bombing effort?

Do you care more about some broken gravestones than them?

Not even sure if there is any proof that Islamists did this

If you believe in the old saying "an eye for an eye" then Afghans can kill hundreds of thousands of Americans and British soldiers without morale retribution. Libya has been destroyed by the British and French so deystroying a grave yard is no biggie and imagine if a load of arabs invaded the US and started burning bibles, just imagine the look on the face of Fred Phelps, not to mention terrorist organisations like the KKK.

They are upset that someone burnt a qur'an. They go and kill people. They desecrate graves. Over a book!

then people come along and forget that it's a book they're pissed about, and ask "How many Libyans did the Brits help kill in their last NATO bombing effort?" ???

"You stole my marble!"
"Did not! I'll punch you if you say it again!"
"You stole my marble!"
*PUNCH*
"Mommy he punched me and stole my marble!"
"Well you did kill his entire ant collection last year. You probably deserved it."

I just don't understand the uncontrolled rage... I have ZERO issues with any religion. But when someone kills another under their fanatical religious views, its wrong, and I know for a FACT, Islam says to not kill another.
(But on the other hand, it does say you can kill infidels).. hmm.. All Religions have their double standards. Even Christians -- 'Turn the other cheek', then you get 'an eye for an eye'..

For me, I wouldn't harm anyone.. I would only resort to violence if my Family was in danger, or friends... but wouldn't kill them--if I could help it... I mean, things all around this world are falling apart.. Geez, maybe the Mayans were right... if things keep going this way, we may be wiping each other out soon.

They don't invade the US though do they. They infiltrate it, and instead of targeting valid military targets, they attack innocent men, women and children, mothers, fathers, brothers and sisters.

For a BOOK!

What do you expect, Libya is a a Demoracy now is it not ??? Shame
it was'nt flattened like a pancake. In previous years; Especially after Ghaddaffi - 1969 - kicked out All Christians and converted their Churches into Mosques.

Later they Murdered a WPC in London uk
Then came the Locherbie catosphy

All that after so many WW2 soldiers rescued Liby from Nazis

It's unacceptable for uneducated apes to be burning religious texts in public. They might not be important to you, but they are important to others, expecially in some cases throughout the middle-east were people are unable to afford their own books to study. It is an insult.

Even though religion (as a whole) is part of the problem and the reason why all major conflicts/wars have started... people's property should be respected.

The upsetting part here is that a british memorial monument has been destroyed on behalf of uneducated american troops. I don't want my country pulled deeper into this mess by the ego's of a selective few american troops.

I didn't know they did!!! That is just as bad.. Hell, ANY Grave stone to a fallen Hero or not should be respected.. How evil is it to actually take the time to go chip away hard stone to break it apart? I mean.... inhuman.

Libya, to my knowledge, has always been Islamic, right? Yet those graves were left intact for all this time. (Weren't we lucky the cemetery wasn't vandalised from a 'friendly' bomb?)
The chances are it was, indeed, a group of teenage muslim boys who did the damage but, you know what? I DON'T blame them!
WHEN will folk realise that other people of other countries do not believe we are, in fact, superior? I can only imagine what those same soldiers would have done had they discovered burning bibles in the rubbish of, say, for illustration purposes ONLY, the Pakistani Govt buildings!!
With the threats, the death and the destruction we sweet 'Christians' have wrought upon them, their country and their religion WHY are we appalled???

So, are you saying it is justified to KILL PEOPLE for accidentally burning books? Please say you are not....

No... no... Don't dare blame America for the desecration of the Grave stones... Everyone has morals and self control.. they can choose to do something or not.. the people that destroyed the grave stones are at fault. Don't try to throw blame to America as usual with the Middle East... Yet when they NEED us, we help, then they tell us to get out and go to war...

I don't believe that the sole reason for the rioting is because of the burning of the boks.

Think of all this as a dam. Their families have been killed, their countries are destroyed. It was only a matter of time until the 'dam' broke and rioting ensued, and it just so happens that the burning of the Qurans was the last straw that set it off.
