splcenter.org: "Burn a Koran Day" Fan Page Stays Up, Grows, Despite Rules


On July 22, Hatewatch reported the announcement of a provocative spectacle planned for Sept. 11 by Dove World Outreach Center. Just about everything you need to know about the event is contained in its title, "Burn a Koran Day” [...] At the time of our original post, the event’s Facebook page had several hundred fans. Now, nearly two weeks later, the page has more than 3,000 and is growing. Many of these - largely drawn from the United States and Poland - have added more than 2,000 images of graphic violence (committed both by and against Muslims) as well as crudely designed anti-Arab and anti-Muslim Photoshop jobs (including multiple versions of posters urging the nuking of Mecca).
