Koran Burned in Iran (video)
washingtontimes / James S. Robbins

Two anonymous young men in Iran, one Iranian and one Afghan, have
burned a Koran in protest. This seven-and-a-half minute long video shows
the two men, their faces obscured, holding the Muslim holy book and
reading prepared statements. They say that Arabs have foisted this book
and their homelands and because of it they have gone backwards for 1400
years. They say they dislike the Koran and want it to disappear,
adding "Viva freedom!" 

Afterwards they stand the Koran on a flat
rock, douse it alcohol and light it. One of them hoots and laughs. The
book burns fiercely, and after a few moments one of them sprays more
alcohol into the flames. The video ends with them warming their hands
over the blazing book.
