Got Koran, looking for match

If Florida’s Koran-burning preacher, Terry Jones, hoped to show something of the difference between Christianity and Islam, he succeeded more than he hoped for.  Some 20-odd people have been killed in violent protests about it.  U.N. Secretary-General Ban ki-Moon, denounced… well, who do you think he denounced?  The Christian preacher who burnt a single book or Islamic mobs that murdered two dozen people, some by beheading?

Okay, so it’s a silly question.  Of course Terry Jones had to be condemned and Islamic killers daintily ignored.  The Taliban’s chief yakker Zabihullah Mujahid weighed in by denying involvement while noting that the killings were the “pure act of responsible Muslims.”  Attaboy, Zabihullah!  When you’re proud of your boys, tell ’em.

Not being an historian, I need to consult one about this.  Has there ever before been a situation in which a civilization has been under sustained, prolonged attack while its leaders refuse to name the people who are attacking?  I’m trying to imagine the Roman senate insisting that Hannibal led the “Carthaginians of peace” who posed no threat to Rome.
