Media Firestorm and the Qu'ran
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.
September 10, 2010 Florida pastor Terry Jones organized what he called “International Burn a Koran Day,” scheduled to take place on September 11th. And then the media paid attention. Brooke considers the consequences.
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.
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!
