 In a recent statement, media spokesman for the Muslim Brotherhood Dr. Essam l-Erian described the scheduled "Quran burning" as a "barbaric act, reminiscent of the Inquisition" .

Al-Erian, a member of the group's executive bureau, warned that the event planned by the Dove World Outreach Centre, a small church in Gainesville, Florida, would definitely fan Muslim hatred of the United States. The MB, which enjoys much popularity despite being targeted by Egypt's regime holds a fifth of the seats in parliament where they ran as independents in the 2005 elections.

Hillary Clinton, U.S. Secretary of State, condemned the event stressing that the plans which are scheduled to take place on September 11 in commemoration of the attacks nine years earlier are nothing short of a disgrace.

Koran Burning Moss, Steve
Moderate Americans do not approve of the burning of the Quran. It is the radical fringe group here, similar to the radical fringe group in Muslim countries who wish to divide us. America is a Christian country, but we still allow people of other faiths to live here. Can the same be said of Muslim countries and do they allow people of other faiths to step foot in Mecca???

Koran Burning James
I find it interesting that we all run to condemn the actions of a marginalized reverend in Florida who has burned a Koran..yet we seem to acknowledge the indignation of murderous lunatics who are killing people in the name of Islam as somewhat justifiable? Really? This is why westerners fear Islam.
