50. It would be wrong to react to the Koran burning with violence.
Violence won't solve anything and it will just make matters worse. It will play right into the hands of the ignorant Christian fundamentalists who are attempting this provocation. If the burning goes forward and violence occurs as a result, you know what the headline in the media will be. It won't be 'Koran burned." It will be "Muslim violence." This is just what the burners want. They want to provoke Muslims into violence in an attempt to harm the reputation of the Muslim community. The best way to handle the burners is to ignore them.
