The responsibility for these horrific murderous acts rest with the Islamist perpetrators. And their Puppet Master.
Nor was former Israeli PM Ariel Sharon's visit to the Temple Mount in Jerusalem responsible for the launch of the 2nd jihad Intifada violence:
"It [the uprising] had been planned since [PA] Chairman [Yasser] Arafat's return from Camp David, when he turned the tables on the former US president and rejected the American conditions,"
--PA Communications Minister Imad Faluji, -March 2, 2001
"...it [Intifada] had been planned..."
Sharon's visit to the Temple Mount was publicised and known about well in advance.
Then used as a pretext to initiate the Intifada that had been planned.
The PA Muslim rampage in Jerusalem was not a "spontaneous" affair.
This reported Koran-burning had also been greatly publicised beforehand.
This from Fox:
["An Afghan insurgent from one of the country's hotbeds of militancy is thought to be the ringleader of a bloody attack Friday on a United Nations compound as hundreds protested the purported burning of a Koran by a Florida pastor."]
["At least 11 people, including seven foreigners, were killed in the storming of the U.N. compound in the northern Afghanistan city of Mazar-i-Sharif. Two of the foreigners were beheaded, Reuters reported."]

As has been pointed out, the reported Koran-burning had been greatly publicised beforehand.
Together with the info above, this bloody, murderous affair does not appear to be spontaneous, but planned.

More on those 2006 cartoons from American Thinker:
["In other words, this was indeed a campaign, planned by important members of the Islamic world's power structure, intended to force Denmark to comply with Sharia requirements."]
["A new norm, that a western nation would conform to Sharia regardless of its free expression tradition, would be on the way to being established."]

Did Hamad Karzai Incite the Riots?
["The murderous riots themselves seem to have been a Taliban operation."
"The whole world knows by now that the Taliban will seize on any excuse to go on a beheading spree."
"But why did Karzai help move that excuse along?"
"Is he simply off his meds as the WikiLeaks cables suggest happens from time to time, or is he playing to the home crowd?" What’s Hamid up to?"]

|Muslim riots and murders of non-Muslims are, unfortunately, not a rarity - if it hadn't been over the Quran burning, it would have been over something else||24% (539)|
|The riots in Afghanistan are likely being coordinated and directed by the same Islamists stirring up the other Muslim countries||23% (510)|
|The Quran is just a book that can be easily replaced - there's no justification for killing someone over destruction of a book||8% (177)|
