UN now practicing sharia, demanding prosecution of those who inadvertently burned a few Qur'ans

Not only disgusting, but a travesty against the UN charter and a victory for Islamists and those wanting further encroachment of sharia into all aspects of society.  This should be enough reason for the US to pull out of the UN but we won't, we will continue to let the enemies of free speech and liberty control what used to be a fair and unbiased institution.

So sad, yet so preventable.

Despite an apology from US President Barack Obama, the burning of the Muslim holy book at the Bagram base north of the capital ignited a wave of anti-Western fury across the country.
At least 30 people were killed in protests, including two American soldiers who were killed by an Afghan soldier who joined the demonstrations.
After the first step of a profound apology, there must be a second step ... of disciplinary action,” Jan Kubis, special representative for the UN secretary-general in Afghanistan, told a news conference.
“Only after this, after such a disciplinary action, can the international forces say 'yes, we're sincere in our apology',” added Kubis, without elaborating on what action should be taken.
