you seriously dont get it? this kind of news about some retard wanting to burn qurans will effect people to form a negative opinion about muslims, even tho some government people would stop it. or maybe not help to form a negative opinion about them all that much, but more to make the negative image even worse in people who already have it, making the hatred in those people even more extreme and giving them extreme ideas like burning qurans. it will also make the government look good in foreigners eyes when they stop the quran burning..
i dont get what the fact that american media has tried to make muslims look bad even before the 9/11?
