ANOTHER Afghan protest against Koran-burning pastor Terry Jones left eight dead and 69 wounded, after police shot at violent protesters, according to AJ.Afghan officials called Jones “uneducated,” “racist” and a “leper,” according to ABC’s Nick Schifrin.

Yesterday a shocking attack on a UN compound in northern Afghanistan, which left 7 dead, was blamed on Terry Jones. At the time we couldn’t believe it — but now the protests are spreading.

The Taliban are not taking credit for these attacks.

When Jones finally filmed himself burning a Koran on March 20, it seemed like no one paid attention. The media hellstorm that broke out last year when he threatened to burn a Koran had faded.
