18. "mosque leaders issued a call to the region's Muslims for nonviolence" Good but...
why do people still insist that mosques=terrorist recruitment centers? My take on this Koran-burning thing: The church should do it and let everyone give dirty looks in response. If there are any fire code violations, the church should be fined or punished accordingly. As of today - September 6, 2010 - about 223 years since the Constitution was adopted - no law exists that bans blasphemous behavior like burning holy books. And the First Amendment prevents any such law from taking place anyway because such a law implies government endorsement of religion.
