Burning the Qur'an was "hateful and intolerant"

According to CNN, this Sunday General David Petraeus said,
"Burning the Muslim holy book "was hateful, it was intolerant and it was extremely disrespectful and again, we condemn it in the strongest manner possible,"
One thing the general (and the President) failed to mention is that it was also freedom of speech. Some of us remember a time when liberals defended freedom of speech in America.

Some Americans get outraged when a misguided preacher in Florida exercises his constitutional right to burn a book, but no one seems to even raise an eyebrow about the fact that so many Muslim countries do not allow freedom of speech or freedom of religion, and brutally oppress religious minorities.

It is about time Americans started standing up for freedom rather than bowing to the disrespectful and hateful intolerance of Muslim radicals.
