Agence France-Presse stokes the (Koran) fire [krakatoa]

US soldiers burnt Holy Koran, says report

(emphasis mine, but it is the headline.)

If the perpetrators do not apologise to Afghanis and to all the Muslims of the world, and if they are not brought to justice and punished for what they have done, we will stand against you, you will see an uprising"

Let's see... a raid on a remote village close to the Pakistan border with probable deep support for the Taliban nets 4 arrests and counter-claims of Koran abuse. AFP isn't the least bit skeptical.

They do indirectly note that the ROP is prone to passionate response:

Afghanistan is a deeply devout country and allegations of abuse of Islam have in the past touched off protests that have turned deadly.

Obviously AFP dismisses the concept that a fatuous media response to such claims could have the effect of encouraging said protests.

From Snapped Shot, a selection of outrage to suit your cause. I think the second pic down is most apropos.
