Libyan Mob Desecrates Christian and Jewish WWII Tombstones Apparently Over Koran Burning

Golly gee it's ok for Muslims to desecrate Christian and Jewish religious symbols...but theirs are sacred? Time to outlaw the 7th Century Theocracy of intolerance and mayhem!

In the eyes of radical Islamists, it seems attacking the living was not sufficient retaliation for U.S. troops inadvertently burning copies of the Koran in Afghanistan. Now, protesters in Libya have released their wrath on the dead.
A group of Libyan men – apparently angry at the Afghanistan incident – desecrated the graves of British World War II fighters in a cemetery near Benghazi, Libya. During the Second World War, British Commonwealth forces fought Italian Axis forces in this theater for control of Libya and Egypt. In the video below, one can see the Libyans destroying tombstones, while a ladder is erected which a man climbs and begins hammering a large cross overlooking the cemetery.

According to Ynet, one of the men says, “Come see, there’s Israeli writing, Hebrew, on the tombstone.”

Al Jazeera reports that one man can be heard saying in Arabic: “This is a grave of a Christian,” as he uproots a headstone. Others repeatedly say, “They are dogs, they are dogs.”

Britain’s Daily Mail is calling the ransacking an “insult to WWII heroes.” The paper points out the irony considering Britain’s key role in aiding Libyan rebels just one year ago:
A year ago they begged for Britain’s help when Colonel Gaddafi’s tanks encircled their city, threatening annihilation.
Now former Libyan rebels in Benghazi – liberated with the aid of the RAF last March – have systematically desecrated the graves of more than 150 British servicemen killed in North Africa 70 years ago.
