Shocker. Muslims Riot in Athens Over Defaced Koran
Here we go…
Muslims in Athens waved Korans and shouted “God is Great- Allah Akbar!” as they rioted over reports that a policeman had torn up a Koran and stomped on it.
Leftists, immigrants and anti-racism groups led the march.
Dozens of cars were smashed up, banks were attacked and 14 people were injured in the rioting.

Authorities fired tear gas and stun grenades at hundreds of Muslims as they protested against a Greek policeman’s alleged defacement of a Quran owned by an Iraqi immigrant. Chanting ‘God is great!’ and waving leather-bound copies of Islam’s holy book, about 1,000 Muslim immigrants had begun the demonstration with a march to Parliament to express their outrage.
