More pre-pubescent, murderous rage in the Dar al-Islam

Twelve people murdered because someone completely unrelated to them, on the other side of the world, burned a book:
Stirred up by a trio of angry mullahs who urged them to avenge the burning of a Koran at a Florida church, thousands of protesters overran the compound of the United Nations in this northern Afghan city, killing at least 12 people, Afghan and United Nations officials said.

Update: Five of the twelve dead were demonstrators, hopefully among those who stormed the compound, and not anyone who tried to intervene.

Update: And the riots spread, and of course a large contingent of people are blaming Terry Jones for everything while saying hardly a word about the rioters themselves, or the mullahs or the Afghan President who incited them.

That's insane. And depressing.

This really made me mad. You can assume the things I'm thinking.
