OIC condemns Qur'an burning, calls it "intolerant"

The irony is thick enough to cut with a knife.  The Organization of Islamic Cooperation calls the Qur'an burning in Afghanistan intolerant, yet Islam is, at its core the most intolerant religion on earth.  The OIC is also demanding that the perps be brought to justice and prosecuted for desecration.  This is another call for the enforcement of sharia on non-Muslims.

OIC Condemns Quran Burning by US Troops in Afghanistan 
In a statement on Thursday, Ihsanoglu described the incident as a "deplorable act of incitement", and said that the act runs "contrary to the common efforts of the OIC and that of the international community …to combat intolerance, and incitement to hatred based on religion and belief." 

The statement also called on "the concerned authorities to take swift and appropriate disciplinary action against those responsible." 

Also on Thursday, US President Barack Obama sent a letter to his Afghan counterpart, apologizing for the acts of desecration. 

The developments came as anti-US demonstrations are underway across Afghanistan over the burning of the Holy Quran at the US Airbase. 

Media reports said that at least twenty Afghans have been killed since the beginning of protests on Tuesday.
