Zealots at Home & Abroad

Terry Jones, the Gainesville FL cult leader, who ALMOST burned a Quran last September 11th, finally did it... Sparking deadly violence at the United Nations compound in Mazar-I-Sharif, Afghanistan.

Protests against the burning continue, with a death toll comparable to the membership of Jones' congregation, and injured over 100 more.

While the Taliban seem to be stoking the fires of the angry mobs, a supposed U.S. ally seems to be the one who lit the bigger match.
