Afghans in Jalalabad, east of Kabul, shout anti-U.S. slogans Friday as they burn tires and block a highway during a protest in reaction to a small American church's plan to burn copies of the Quran.In an attempt to prove correct the Neocrusaders’ contention that Islam is a violent and dangerous religion, more riots broke out across Afghanistan over the burning of Qur’ans — which haven’t even taken place yet. USA Today and Reuters report on the latest event which left one person dead (WebCite cached version):

A demonstrator protesting plans to burn copies of the Quran at a Florida church was killed today in northeast Afghanistan as thousands of angry Afghans took to the streets in Kabul and five provinces, Reuters reports.

Reuters says the protester was shot and killed outside a German-run NATO base in northeast Afghanistan and NATO is investigating.

Obviously the Germans needed to be attacked, because the childish lunatic fringe in the US wants some attention. Wonderful. Just wonderful.
