So if the shoe was on the other foot ...
So a foreign military which is mostly Muslim comes to your state, and is fighting fundamentalist totalitarian Christians (cultist Baptists?) and occasionally generating civilian casualties. You may approve of the fight against the cultists, but would you approve of the possessions of the insurgents (including a number of bibles) being burned in a trash incinerator? Now, adding in the fact that such an act is MORE offensive to a Muslim, imagine the stuff being placed in an old church and then burning everything. That's why the Afghans are upset.
