Actions like this enrage many not only those they are directly pointed at!

In this case, just like if others were to announce then do a burning of another's religious teachings book, it would enrage many of different faiths or even not following an established faith or beliefs.

This past decade has had nothing to do with religious ideologies except by those extremist preaching the total opposite of all the established religions beliefs and those who support same while claiming they are members of the true ideology.

The links to the transcripts, and their recordings, if clicked will show those transcripts won't be available till this afternoon, monday the 13th.

Burn a Koran Day and the Arab World

September 10, 2010
While controversy over "Burn a Koran Day" reached a boiling point in America this week, much of the rest of the world has been following the proposed stunt for over a month. Political science professor and Foreign Policy blogger Marc Lynch says that the story fits neatly into an emerging narrative in the Middle East, that the US is becoming fervently anti-Muslim.

Muslim-American Public Service Announcements

September 10, 2010
The Council on American-Islamic Relations has produced a new series of public service announcements that seek to show that American Muslims were also victims of the September 11th attacks. CAIR's Legislative Director Corey Saylor says the PSA's are a response to anti-Muslim sentiment, at its highest level since 2001.

When media types, and others, ignore the true damage certain acts and speak can bring they add to the greater possibility of any blowback from same. That blowback can come in many forms, from a few extremist, no matter ideology, doing distructive acts against others, to economic, as those who do see how deplorable acts pointed at others are turn their backs on everything those supporting same do, even the good they may try!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    this diary makes.

    If the media wanted to mitigate the damage that the burning of a book could cause, then the best course is to ignore it completely.

    But since they've made it the out rage du'jour all they've managed to accomplish is to bring every opportunistic christian kook out of their cave to claim their share in the ego-stroke booty.

      Such acts Support them being carried out, like you just showed you do as those with others who seek to carry out the acts or speak!!

      The problem with modern media is totally missing how they contribute to the Blowback these acts bring,And That Isn't Only About This Recent Issue It's Everything That's Spun For So Called Political Reasoning and Ideologies, long lost!!!

        of supporting the burning of religious books was necessary in order for you to dispute my point, do you?

          You just answered your own question, and gave my point, a bit of rage because my reply was pointed directly at you for what you showed, now carry that to the acts like the Qu'ran threat of burning or the actual acts, oh wait, you're here in the U.S., so what you say or do is A-OK it's them over there, or even next door to you, that are all wrong!!!

            "No, it was not necessary to accuse you of supporting burning Qurans in order to disagree with you about the media ignoring a single kook christian being an attention whore."

            What kind of toad response is that crap you responded with?

    Islamophobia is a dream come true for a number of different power blocks of the US.

    Several religious groups, the military-intel complex including the Neocons, and the media all have direct interests in hyping it. The entire economy has an interest in that it biases elections to Republicans who will liberate big money and remove business regulation.

    The least important factor in this whole thing is the pastor.

      If one is espousing something that is the total opposite, in this case religion, then the ideology they preach or the way one teaches their children, then that so called pastor is no different then those he's condemning as a whole block of people not just individuals within, same as him and those who support him!
