       "THE MORE YOU HUMILIATE PEOPLE FOR THEIR RELIGION (OR RACE, OR CLASS, OR CASTE, OR LANGUAGE), THE MORE THEY COME TO DEFINE THEMSELVES BY THE THING IMPUGNED"

What do you mean by humiliate? Is, pointing out that threatening to kill people because someone burns a book is just plain stupid, humiliating?

And let's get this straight, does it say in the Koran that if anyone burns the book then they should be put to death?

And, surely, the Koran, like the bible, is open to endless interpretation and is therefore a great breeding ground for nutters!
