Muslims Rioting in Greece

In the past Muslims have rioted in Belgium, Denmark and France. So why not add Greece to that list? Hopefully those that support Muslim immigration will wake up before it is too late.

Muslims protest alleged Koran destruction in Greece

ATHENS (Reuters) - Hundreds of Muslims marched through central Athens on Thursday, damaging shops and cars, to protest what they said was the destruction of a Koran by a Greek policeman.

"The president of the Muslim Union of Greece, Naim Elghandour, said that during police checks at a Syrian-owned coffee shop on Wednesday, an officer took a customer's Koran, tore it up, threw it on the floor and stomped on it.

In response, about 1,000 immigrants, many from Syria, Pakistan and Afghanistan, marched to central Omonia Square, smashing several shop windows and five cars, a police official said.

Police sources said an internal investigation was launched into the Koran incident.

"We were told by police we will be given the name of the policeman who did this so we can press charges," Elghandour said.

Thousands of immigrants, many from Muslim countries, cross into Greece illegally every year seeking a better life in the West. Trapped in legal limbo, most have no jobs, live in squalid conditions and are often arrested for minor crimes.

On May 9, members of a rightist group attacked immigrants in Athens, sending at least three to hospital. Rights groups accuse predominantly Orthodox Christian Greece of not doing enough to protect immigrants.

Here is the clincher that really pisses me off: "'We were told by police we will be given the name of the policeman who did this so we can press charges,' Elghandour said." Charged for what? Frankly, Isn't it MUCH more important to have the 1000 criminals arrested, booked and shipped back to Allah's lands?

Of course not. Islam was "insulted" and that is all that matters.

The thing that gets me is that liberals WORLD WIDE are absolutely committed to appeasing the muslim bastards, no matter what the muz do. Why? Where is there any gain in appeasement?

The policeman didn't cutted koran's pages like that.
An iraqi drug dealer had heroine hided between some papers,and the policeman cut the papers to show him the heroine inside as a proof.
He didn't knew it was a page of the koran.

how ironic. so if the incident happened at all, it was because the OTHER guy "insulted" the book.
