OK - it don't matter if you care about quran burning or not. I'm concerned that there is a news blackout on google news! Yes that's right! check out this message on google US edition:
All 1,813 related articles Â»
"No articles related to quran burning were found."
I searched for quran burn news blackout and I got a single result:
Canadian news blackout on the koran burning? - Zoklet.net
when I click on it - it does not go to the news story but some other commercial site.
It is not a total news blackout. but obviously there is screened approved news available with google - just like in China with the words 'tiananmen square'
So I went to Al Jazeera english:
"The protests, which followed reports of the discovery by local labourers of charred copies of the Quran as they collected rubbish at the Bagram airbase, .... a police spokesman denied that police officers had shot at protesters."
So yeah, having this book partially burnt admist garbage - yeah that would probably piss off people more so than that paster that burnt korans in a pile in the USA.
"It is important to give a Quran a proper burial, says Omid Safi, professor of ... than treating the disposal with reverence in a burial or sacred burning." - Christian Monitor
I just googled it and found several articles using Quran and Koran. They probably started letting the news out once they realized they could not contain it. I do not believe in the Koran but I have respect for other people and their beliefs. This is another tragedy that gives America a black eye.
Or maybe it takes the journalist time to type the words and the editors time to edit them and the IT guys time to make them go live.
That seems easier to believe than a secret signal that makes every journalist in the world not post a story.
I saw a headline about it on Yahoo!, but I didn't take the time to read it because I have been hearing about it on the radio.
I don't usually check Google news, but I did just now. I found at least four [edit: nine] up-to-date articles on this awful, offensive incident linked there, when I ran a search for "Koran." The difference in spelling could be the reason for your apparent "news blackout," but since both spellings are in common use, Google should have gotten around that!
That's definitely censorship of the news on the part of Google. I'll do my own search in a minute to see if I'm also seeing that.
I just read about it in the Guardian so it can't be a total black out--so as mentioned above, maybe they are just using a different spelling.

Yep. It's easy to leap to conclusions.
Google is owned by neo-con Zionists, as is 96% of all media.
You will only see pro-Israel, anti-Muslim news.
I M O
Actually, quite a few of the owners are libertarian.
so... good job on that
OK...where is the anti-Israel, pro-Muslim news?
Probably from broadcasters and publishers serving communities who want it.
I know I recent saw a scathing piece about Israels nuclear stockpile.
I agree that Western Media is mostly controlled by Jews....it's factual, and easy to look up who owns what.
I think by saying that news is "neocon" that you sort of left the park with that.
I also agree that due to the resources of Arabia and the ownership of the mass media....we're not going to see anything remotely balanced concerning Islam. I'm not pro Islam, I'm almost pro Israel, and very pro Israel in some ways....but objectivity and facts...well, facts are facts.
"quran burning" generates 61.8 million reults on Google in Australia.
edit: that should be "results"
"Most Americans — particularly those who would object to only white reporters covering racial issues or only male reporters covering gender issues — are reluctant to discuss the potential bias in such a profoundly un-diverse system, having been conditioned to fear that such discussion would be “anti-Semitic” or would open the commentator to this extremely damaging accusation.
An article by star reporter and author Grace Halsell describes her firsthand experience with pro-Israel bias at the Times in the early 1980s.
Halsell had written books about the plight of Native Americans, African Americans, and undocumented Mexican workers. She was a great favorite of New York Times matriarch Iphigene Ochs Sulzberger, whose father had acquired the Times in 1896, whose husband and then son had run it next, and whose grandson is now in charge.
When Halsell next wrote a powerful book describing the Palestinian plight, she incurred Mrs. Suzberger’s displeasure and was quickly dropped by the Times. Halsell writes: “I had little concept that from being buoyed so high I could be dropped so suddenly when I discovered—from her point of view—the ‘wrong’ underdog.”
In her article Halsell quotes a revealing statement by an Israeli journalist following Israel’s 1996 shelling of a U.N. base in Lebanon that killed more than 100 civilians sheltering in it: “We believe with absolute certitude that right now, with the White House in our hands, the Senate in our hands and The New York Times in our hands, the lives of others do not count the same way as our own.”

This is the reality of it. And all these people who are so "pro-life" don't give a dang about the lives of Arabs.
Great point. unborn should be protected but want the death penality process to go faster than 10 years because it's more expensive that our justice system can afford.
Probably vote to banning a woman from a hospital because don't want another "ancher" baby in the United States, drop free school lunches for the poor and cut welfare to single mothers unless they earn a wage - leaving the baby in the care of strangers in an insitution.
The rebuttal that this is not an oxymoron from
http://liveaction.org/blog/can-you-be-p … h-penalty/
"The pre-born infant has committed no crime. She has had no legal representation. She does not have the voice to plead her case. She simply, through no fault of her own, exists, an entire and complete human being from the moment of her conception. She is blameless."
My rebuttal to the rebuttal is:
The condemned prisoner was convicted under law but still may be innocent and blameless in fact. (Rare but happened at least 400 times with old DNA evidence project in the USA)
"Israeli Haaretz newspaper, two days ago, said Netanyahu wrote on his Facebook page that "I wish death to all Arabs." The phrase was posted after the school bus accident that killed 10 children and injured 40 others."
Now may we see this everywhere, and have it repeated over and over as they do Ahmedin statement??
Not on your life.

My husband works for the state of California. His work computer has internet filters on it to block certain cites deemed as “inappropriate:
CNN is Ok, along with most other news sites, with one glaring exception. Rense.com is blocked.
I don’t know about the “sheeple” waking up. I think their takeover many years ago of the media, and more importantly, the American education system where critical thinking skills have been deemphasized, has stupified the American public to the point where most are so brain dead that even if they did really “get it”, they probably wouldn’t care."
No one cared when Terrorists were burning American Flags, and would anyone care if bibles were being burned.
The answer would be no.
So why care about something that is meaningless.
The Koran is a book, it would be different if you burned the book and someone reading it.
Why don't people spend more time discussing what the terrorists that believe in the book are doing, like bombing civilians, cutting their heads off etc.

If an Islamic group was burning the Bible in a public demonstration then yes, there absolutely would be outrage. Anyone who doesn't think so is delusional. Remember, this isn't just one person burning a book in his basement, it's a 50-member church making a public spectacle of their Islamophobia.
