Let’s All Burn the Koran Next Saturday

, , , ,

General Petraeus, CNN reports, is warning that some Bible-thumping Florida church’s intention to burn the Koran next Saturday might endanger US troops.

The U.S. commander in Afghanistan on Monday criticized a Florida church’s plan to burn copies of the Quran on September 11, warning the demonstration “could cause significant problems” for American troops overseas.

“It could endanger troops and it could endanger the overall effort in Afghanistan,” Gen. David Petraeus said in a statement issued Monday.

The Dove World Outreach Center in Gainesville, Florida, plans to mark the anniversary of al Qaeda’s September 11, 2001, attacks on New York and Washington by burning copies of the Muslim holy book. The church insists the event is “neither an act of love nor of hate,” but a warning against what it calls the threats posed by Islam.

The event has drawn criticism from Muslims in the United States and overseas, with thousands of Indonesians gathering outside the U.S. Embassy in Jakarta, Indonesia, on Sunday to protest the planned Quran burning.

“The burning is not only an insult to the holy Quran, but an insult to Islam and Muslims around the world,” said Muhammad Ismail, a spokesman for the hard-line Indonesian Muslim group Hizb ut-Tahrir.

With about 120,000 U.S. and NATO-led troops still battling al Qaeda and its allies in the Islamic fundamentalist Taliban movement, Petraeus warned that burning Qurans “is precisely the kind of action the Taliban uses and could cause significant problems — not just here, but everywhere in the world we are engaged with the Islamic community.”

Can one begin to imagine General McArthur warning Americans against burning the Rising Sun flag during WWII, or General Patton advising a news organization that a symbolic burning of Mein Kampf might inflame Waffen SS units?

If you’re scared of the camel-fornicating sons of the Prophet, you shouldn’t be in the US military in time of war.

Frankly, I think instead of these endless exercises in cultural sensitivity and attempts to placate the religious bigotry of the Saracens, we ought to issue US troops bathroom tissue imprinted with the Koran and burn the Koran daily as part of routine latrine maintenance.

We’re at war with militant Islam. Islamic intolerance and insolent demands for deference to their superstition are the hallmarks of the ideology which produced the September 11th attacks on the United States. The Koran and the Prophet Mohammed are Islamicist symbols in very much the same way the meatball flag, the swastika, and pictures of Adolph Hitler were intrinsic to the ideology of our enemies in WWII.

Trying to fight a war, while supporting your enemies’ proposal to build a combined recruiting center and victory monument in the vicinity of their surprise attack, and while insisting on reverential treatment of their symbols, is nothing short of ridiculous.

All this shows that liberalism is so thoroughly decadent, so utterly bound up in namby pamby inhibitions against conflict and animosity, that liberals are basically incapable of making war. The liberal consciousness requires military action inevitably to be accompanied by simultaneous appeasement, and prohibits a genuine commitment to defeating the enemy out of self-defeating fears of antagonizing anyone. All liberal wars are Korea and Vietnam. They all have to end either in concession and withdrawal or in stalemate. For liberals, appeasement is always a substitute for victory.

I didn’t originally think much of that silly Florida church’s Koran-burning demonstration, but I’ve changed my mind. I plan to look for my own copy and take it out and light it up on Saturday, too, just to affirm a general policy of Americans declining to placate hirsute barbarians afflicted with superstitious extremism. If that makes the Taliban angry, that is just too bad.

Surely if we hadn’t dumped all that tea in Boston harbor, the Crown would have been inclined to grant our petitions for independence.

Gen P needs to put more juice into killing tangos. It’s the only thing they “get.” That’s what we the people pay taxes for – the defense budget – death and destruction.

Teach the benighted heathens that America is the Angel of Death and the brothers (and their wives andf children and goats) very quickly die whenever the taliban show up.

Exterminate all the brutes.

Buring the Qur’an is not the same as buring the Japanese fladg in WW2. We are not at war with Islam. The enemy propaganda explicitly says that is what we are fighting for and this plays right into the enemy’s recruiting message.

Just because you can do something, doesn’t mean you should. The Taliban themselves can’t come up with anything that makes us look worse than this in the eyes of their target audience.



Homer

Does book burning indicate holding the moral high ground, or the opposite? We are better than that.



David

Why is that we US citizens can’t burn a koran but the mulims can and will kill anyone in their countries caught with a bible??? The koran and it’s followers are straight from satan! No tolerance for muslims until there is tolerance from muslims!



Keith

You are so right! Eventually we must tire of turning the other cheek and face intolerance with matching intolerance. What about a drone strike on that stone in Mecca? That’d be fun. One can become sooo tired of holding the moral high ground when the enemy’s spoiling for a fight and spitting venom…



intolerance with intolerance

many of you don’t believe Muslims are human. you probably also don’t believe French are human either. you’ve probably gone much of your life hating Others – and making them less human but if you’re reading this, one day you’ll realize the hatred for others really, in the end, hurt yourself.



AllahIsaNewPigskin

Burn the Koran? I have a Zippo! Can we burn the Talmud while we are at it?



jim

I say we pull our troops out of that shit place they call a country. Fly over there lovely homes and drop burning korans on there roof. let them a-holes kill themselves wishing we would have stayed. GOD BLESS AMERICA



Never judge a book by its cover

First of all Terry Jones should know that if he had burned the QURAN it would not be as much worse as burning the BIBLE, because every Muslim is devoted to memorize the QURAN BY HEART. Infact, if you burned all the books of the Quran you can’t burn the book (Quran) inside every Muslim’s memory, because even little children (5 years old and even under and above 70) can memorize this book. Can you ask yourself, why s it so easy to memorize..??
And every Muslim know that the Bible is sacred to them as well as the Torah (Jewish’s holy book), because they believe in JESUS (including most of the prophets since Abraham). This book (QURAN) is so concise that it has proven scientific things [and you can find that for yourself]. The Quran even mentioned almost everything even Jesus and his mother with honor and respect. So why should people listen to a pastor who humiliate himself with his ignorant mind (that never met a Muslim who memorized the Quran, as said by some websites/news) and burn the Quran with him. “We should not” be that ignorant and “judge a book by its cover”.
