AFGHANIS: "DEATH TO JEWS AND CHRISTIANS"
EJP Press reports:
Thousands of demonstrators torched Dutch and Danish flags in the Afghan capital Kabul Friday in the latest of a wave of protests against cartoons and a film said to insult Islam, police said.
The demonstrators gathered following Friday prayers from various mosques chanting"Death to George W. Bush. Death to the Jews and Christians. This is a plot against Islam," an AFP reporter at the scene said.
With friends like this. . . . Imagine the soldiers (especially the Danish and Dutch ones) who have to put their lives on the line for the right of the Afghanis to carry on such demonstrations.
Did I hear anyone mention"suicide pacts?"
