As the line goes 'one person's terrorist is another's freedom fighter'- an idea that expresses how perceptions of terrorism depend entirely on the eyes of the bomb-holder.
As Koran-gate in the US escalates to fever pitch, two equally stupid sides face each other and the line gains particular relevance.
The Farenheit 451 recreationists are going to burn Korans to protest against Islam and Islamic radicals are going to react by a or some mysterious acts of violence.
Not to sound too utopian, but can the Koran burners and people exploders- for a second at least- look at one another and see that their views aren't really representative of the society that each party hates?
And can't they just- after their moment of revelation- go into a room and kill each other so the rest of us can live in peace?
