Where they burn books... they will burn human beings

In his 1821 play, Almansor, the German writer Heinrich Heine — referring (ironically) to the burning of the Muslim holy book, the Qur'an, during the Spanish Inquisition — wrote, "Where they burn books, so too will they in the end burn human beings." ("Dort, wo man Bücher verbrennt, verbrennt man auch am Ende Menschen.")

In Scotland they're banning books from Israel. What will be next?
