Everybody burn quran day Barrack Obama pictures photos imagesUS President Barrack Obama tweeted his concern on Quran-burning event "International Burn a Quran Day" that will take place in Florida on September 11, 2010, by non-denominational church The Dove World Outreach Center. Quran, or Koran, the holy book of Islam, is considered to be sacred by Muslims. The burning event will, of course, hurt Muslims around the world and is contrary to American values which prioritize religious tolerance and freedom.

Here's what Obama said on his Twitter account:

Burning Quran is contrary to our values -- this country was built on the notions of religious freedom and tolerance
