Why Burn A Koran When You Can Burn A Mosque?

I posted yesterday about the shooting (with RPG's too!) that broke out in Lebanon yesterday, possibly in an argument over parking by a mosque. Now it seems the shooting expanded to include mosque-burning.
Shortly afterward, Shi’ite supporters of Hizbullah and sister organization Amal set fire to a Sunni mosque in the nearby neighborhood of Basta, according to an AP photographer.

Salah, a 40-year-old who did not wish to give his last name, said he had been inside the Bourj Abu Haidar mosque when he heard a commotion outside and people screaming, “Calm down.”

Then, 20 minutes later, he heard gunshots and bullets slamming into the mosque.

“They were shooting at the mosque. I think these people are crazy. They must have gone home to get their friends,” he said.
It is obscene to burn a Koran, let alone a mosque.
But it would be easier to make that point if Moslems would not desecrate their own holy places.

Legal Insurrection wonders out loud if there will be outrage.
Is there ever?
