From Ann Coulter on the Koran-burning idiot:
The reason not to burn Qurans is that it’s unkind — not to jihadists, but to Muslims who mean us no harm. The same goes for building a mosque at ground zero — in both cases, it’s not a question of anyone’s “rights,” it’s just a nasty thing to do.
She’s right on both counts: the bonfire of the Korans, and the calculated insult to American posed by the Ground Zero mosque builders.
A final point to consider: that idiot in Florida has an absolute right to burn Korans, just as the mosque-builders have an absolute right to build their affront. Both actions share in being insulting and stupid; both will most likely cause hate and discontent.
Oh, right. Both actions already have done so.
