Two men in Iran take joy in a qur'an burning to protest against Islam

Two anonymous young men in Iran, one Iranian and one Afghan, have burned a qur’an, saying that Arabs have foisted this book on their homelands and because of it they have gone backwards for 1400 years. They say they hate the qur’an and want it to disappear, adding “Viva freedom!”

Washington Times(H/T Susan K) – This seven-and-a-half minute long video shows the two men, their faces obscured, holding the Muslim holy book and reading prepared statements. Afterwards they stand the Qur’an on a flat rock, douse it in 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.

(If anyone can translate their words, we’d appreciate it)

FAST FORWARD TO 4:00 for burning
