Qur’an Burning and Destructive Double Standards

Pages: 1 2

The riots and violence in Afghanistan over some accidentally burned Qur’ans are following a script that by now is all too drearily familiar. As we have seen over the years with the riots over the Mohammed cartoons, Pope Benedict’s comments about violence in Islam, or false rumors of Qur’ans flushed down toilets, violent Muslim overreactions to slights are immediately followed by anxious apologies from American leaders. Rather than defusing the anger, however, such groveling merely encourages more contempt and violence.

So too with the current riots, which have killed 30 people, including 4 U.S. soldiers, two of them in the high-security Interior Ministry. Another seven Sunday were wounded in a grenade attack by demonstrators. This violence, moreover, has been encouraged by mullahs in mosques, teachers in madrassas, and members of parliament. Predictably, the Taliban––with whom our government is eager to talk peace––has encouraged people to “turn their guns on the foreign infidel invaders.” President Obama has responded to this incitement and violence by offering his personal “sincere apologies,” professing his “deep regret,” and vowing to hold those responsible accountable. Defense Secretary Panetta and NATO commander John Allen also apologized.

But no reciprocal apology has been demanded from President Hamid Karzai for the incitement to violence on the part of government and religious leaders, or for the deaths of two of our troops at the hands of an Afghan soldier we trained and armed, and another two inside a government ministry. Newt Gingrich had the best response to this sorry spectacle: “There seems to be nothing that radical Islamists can do to get Barack Obama’s attention in a negative way and he is consistently apologizing to people who do not deserve the apology of the President of the United States period,” Gingrich said in Washington D.C. “It is Hamid Karzai who owes the American people an apology, not the other way around. This destructive double standard whereby the United States and its democratic allies refuse to hold accountable leaders who tolerate systematic violence and oppression in their borders must come to an end.”

The administration and the military, of course, rationalize their indulgence of this double standard as motivated by “the safety of American men and women in Afghanistan, of our military and civilian personnel there,” as Obama spokesman Jay Carney put it. But as one demonstrator in Kabul said, “We don’t care about Obama’s apology. We have to protest to be responsible to our god. They are burning our Qur’an. An apology is not enough.” Most Afghans obviously agree, since rioting and killing have intensified despite apologies from our highest government and military officials. Indeed, over the past few decades, no amount of apologies for alleged “insults” to Muslims has stopped Islamists form attacking us. Nor have the good deeds benefitting Muslims, from rescuing Bosnians from genocide to liberating Libyans from Gaddafi, stopped jihadists from wanting to kill Americans for an endless list of reasons. The past decades of such incidents have shown instead that apologies are useless, and merely confirm the impression among Muslims that we are spiritually inferior, and so endorse the perverse logic that accidentally burning a book is worse than murdering our soldiers and citizens. Why else would we publicly flagellate ourselves over such “insults” even as we say nothing about the Muslim murders of Christians in Egypt and Nigeria, or the Muslim laws prescribing capital punishment for converts to Christianity, or the Muslim vandalizing and destruction of 300 churches in Cyprus, or the Muslim slow-motion extermination of Christians in lands that worshipped Christ for 6 centuries before Islam even existed?

    As Aristotle once said: "Tolerance and apathy are the last virtues of a dying society."

    We need to restore faith in out own values and defend them until out last drop of blood, because ideas can only be fought with ideas. Double moral standards based on who you are and the color of your face is as racist as the KKK. They are adults, not children or animals not responsible for their actions. They must be held accountable like adults and human beings.

  • jacob

    And people still doubt what the real colors of the President are…???

    His apologies for American "misdeeds" t the Muslim world at tne Cairo conference…
    His genuflexing to the Keeper of the Faith, the Saudi Arabia king….
    His statement of America being mi ndebted to Muslims for its independence…
    His placing of Muslims in some of his admin istration positions….
    And least but not last, this apology again for the a burning of Korans….
    Would he have given a damn if it would have been the way around…???
    I can swear he woudn't

    • ObamaYoMoma

      It's not only Obama that is mentally incompetent when it comes to Islam; it was GWB and the Republican Party as well. As both political parties today, the Dhimmicrats and the Republicans, are virtually indistinguishable and totally incompetent when it comes to protecting and defending this country from Islam.

    Burning a book of tyranny and war written in blood and terror by a psychopathic demonic killer masquerading as God's last and greatest prophet? How much death and destruction has this book inspired? More than Moslems can apologize for.

          Spoken like a true apologist Randy…Trying to justify what muslims do by making comparisons to something else….How boring….
          What you fail to acknowledge is that when something of this nature, concerning the church, becomes known to the Christian public at large…it is totally unacceptable and is dealt with. The opposite is true in Islam and is endorsed by the teachings of the Qur'an…Good muslim men aspire to be like their hero…Mohammed

  • StephenD

    Excellent work here Mr. Thornton. People that behave as thugs understand only one thing ~ Brute Force. Even their (un)holy book tells them to behave one way when they are strong and another when they are weak. They'll smile and speak softly waiting for their time to be strong when they will attempt to subjugate all others. I think the solution is simple. Make them weak. Make them grovel as their books would have them do when they are weak. Keep them weak. Lead them back to dwelling in caves and scavenging for food so they have no time to "wage jihad." Listen, they choose to live like 7th century trade route bandits; I say – let em.

        All current Muslim land was invaded land. Islam is the youngest of the major religions. The Middle East had a multitude of religions, but all except the 3 Abrahamic religions Judaism, Christianity and Islam remain with Islam dominanting lands that were once Arab polytheists, and Christian, so on. Iran was once Zoroastrian land, until Muslim invasions, Afghanistan was once Hindu and Buddhist, Pakistan and Bangladesh were part of India and were Hindu lands before massive violent brutal invasions over centuries.Long before Europeans had black slaves, the Muslims were enslaving African infidels for a thousand years, and in places like Sudan they still are.

        The same load of drivel this ignorant hate monger offers up each time he posts. He is either a product of the howard zinn school of fake history, and is a product of the american hating educational establishment in the west, or is an ignorant and sickening hate monger from the middle east, who was raised on the islamic school of fake history, etc.

        Either way, he is a disgusting blemish on the human race.

      • Tabris

        Stop whining Randy,

        All through human history greedy people have made war to steel other peoples land and properties. The winner gets the spoils and writes the history. In Dutch they call war "Krijgskunst" translated it means "The art of getting". A warrior is a "Krijger" translated "Getter". Barbarians as well as religions, dictators and democracies are all guilty of this natural human behavior of greedy expansionism. Currently the West is asleep through arrogance, tolerance, political correctness, multicultarism and mass immigration. On the surface you would think that these are good traits but they can be easilly exploited. Currently this weakness is being exploited by islam and if people in the west don't wake up, very soon they will be five times a day facing Mecca with their buts in the air. Nations that are weak or the population is dumb or ignorant, according to the Darwin principle will be automatically eradicated.

      • Tabris

        @ Randy follow up
        Sofar islam has had the smarter strategy. Largely they have been evading the West's strong trait which is a head on war, they know they would lose. On the other hand they have been playing the weak spots very successfully like our tolerance and mass immigration. It is time for the people in the West to wake up, vote the people in power that also see the threat and will take appropriate measures.
        Obama does not see the threat, or does not want to see it or is himself part of it. From his first day in the oval office until now, on purpose or not, he has made America weaker and got nothing in return. The islamist still want to destroy the US. For this reason alone, smart people should not vote for this man in the next election.

      • peter

        You have got it all wrong. Nobody stole land , we bought the land and for a good price too.

      The only way way to "make the weak" is the only way that has worked for all religion: set them against democratic values. Show them what they're missing and that religion is why they're missing it.

      It worked for the Founding Fathers and spread like wildfire.

  • kblink45

    The point about self-loathing and the decline of the west can't be made enough. Obama and his ilk are in power because they despise America. They also believe in Marxist theories of history, in which the decline of America is inevitable. So they are hedging their bets. What they don't see is the axe of the Islamic executioner.

  • Rifleman

    Apologizing profusely only encourages this kind of violence. The muslims will act just as dangerously childish as they can get away with, using any excuse. If you want to keep Americans safe, kill anybody that takes a shot at us, and go kill whoever put them up to it. If you've got to be all culturally sensitive, then hold their families responsible as well. It's brutal and wrong, but it's their way.

    Attacks on Americans will escalate as our withdrawal date nears. The Afghans we've been training, equipping, and are now abandoning, will need to buy cred with the ones we're pretty much handing the country back over to, the taliban. That's what setting an arbitrary, unconditional withdrawal date gets you.

    • Jim_C

      I'm not big on apologizing profusely for this either, but it's just pro forma no matter who your president is.

      It's your criticism of the withdrawal that gets me. Arbitrary withdrawal as opposed to…what? "If you want to keep Americans safe"–get them out of a place we have no reason to be anymore.

      • Rifleman

        We go way beyond pro forma, and the Bush Administration was no stranger to it either. It smells of the State Department more than anything else.

        …As opposed to saying we'll leave when the job is done, the taliban quits fighting, or the Afghan government can and will hold them off on its' own. Until then, we should kill them in their front yard, not ours, and keep pressure on them. Regardless, a fixed withdrawal date is flat out stupid, especially if the intent is to cut and run.

        • Jim_C

          That's whack a mole, man.

          I wouldn't mind essentially using it as a "live" training ground for, say, Special Ops forces. But the Taliban is like potato chips; you keep eating them, they'll keep making them.

          "Cut and run" just doesn't have the same bite after 10 years of "What are we doing here again?" We've killed a lot of bad guys; time to come home.

          • Rifleman

            No, it's keeping pressure on the enemy as far forward as possible. Coming home and waiting for them to throw another Sunday punch at a time and place of their choosing, to go kill some of them then come back home and do it again, is whack a mole.

            Cut and run has failed miserably every time, ten years haven’t changed that, and the answer to “What are we doing here” is the same, “this is where the enemy is.” I do agree the proper tool for the job is primarily Special Forces, but that's no reason to abandon the field to the enemy.

          • Jim_C

            But thinking we're preventing an attack at home just because we're in the soup over there isn't esp. logical. Particularly in a place that really holds little strategic interest to us.

            I'm all for mobilizing light, mobile, highly trained troops to kill bad guys–sort of like how Don Rumsfeld originally envisioned it. If that's the plan, I'm in. But the idea that we're going over there with large amounts of personnel and, what–taking over? monitoring? training? building? territory to achieve some vague result of having dead bad guys. Not really much sense to it, not in a world full of bad guys.

          • Rifleman

            Any sparsely populated place is a good place for the US military to kill them, especially with our air power, and is a much better place than in our population centers or government and civilian facilities abroad. If we keep them busy staying alive out there in the middle of nowhere, they have less time and resources to launch attacks here and other places that are strategically important. That logic works from the strategic level, through the tactical, and all the way to the fist fight level.

  • Gamaliel

    Shiite Muslims blow up Korans when they blow up Sunni mosques. Likewise Sunni Moslems blow up Korans then they blow up Shiite mosques. You don’t get Muslims raging in the street then.

    • Alvaro

      The insult is always greater when a slave (Christians, in their eyes) insult the masters (Muslims, in their eyes). We must refuse to play their game and break their pride, which is the foundation of the oppression of non-Muslim Minorities in Muslim countries.

    Apologies or no apoligies , how much more do we need to see that the Afghans are NOT our allies , nor are they worthy of anymore sacrifice of American blood .Bush dispersed the Taliban , destroyed their infrastructure , Obama killed their leaders including Bin Laden = mission accomplished , now get the hell outta there . We could stay another 50 years , the Taliban will come back as soon as we leave .

    • Rifleman

      You might fool yourself for a while, but you won't fool aq or any of the other jihadis, or the rest of the world, for a minute. The war's not over until they say it is and quit fighting,or die. All abandoning the battlefield to them does is give them another haven to train in, resources to finance their training, and free them up to kill us somewhere else.

  • ObamaYoMoma

    It's time to get out of Afghanistan as that entire fantasy based nation-building mission was premised on the false PC multicultural myth and misconception that Islam is a Religion of Peace™ whereby the vast overwhelming majority of Muslims in the world are peaceful and moderate people. However, that premise in both Afghanistan and Iraq has repeatedly been proven to be a farce so many times it makes your head spin, yet the powers that be can't seem to accept reality, and the reality is that all their premises were absolutely false and ridiculously absurd.

    Indeed, lifting up Muslims via fantasy based nation-building missions is about as counterproductive as lifting up Hitler and the Nazis after WWII. As Islam is not a so-called Religion of Peace™, hell it is not even a damn religion, and Muslims are not peaceful and moderate people, instead they are the eternal mortal enemies of all non-Muslim unbelievers in the world.

    Moreover, thousands of Christian bibles are incinerated and hundreds of Christian churches are burned down to the ground every year throughout the Islamic world, but you never see Christians rioting in mass and murdering Muslims in cold blood. Meanwhile, our troops that have been building schools and hospitals over there for more than 10 years are being murdered in cold-blood and our lunatic president and grossly incompetent generals are apologizing and encouraging them at the same time to kill even more of our troops.

    Give me a break! Let's cut our losses, fire all the generals responsible for this major strategic blunder, and transition to a new strategy of containment, to contain the growth, spread, and expansion of Islam.

    The American people must understand that under the GWB administration the Republican Party, for all intents and purposes, morphed into the second-coming of the Dhimmicrat Party. Thus, both political parties in this country, the Republican Party and the Dhimmicrat Party, are totally 100 percent incompetent when it comes to protecting and defending this country.

    Indeed, GWB put this country on a path to financial ruin when he acted irrationally like a Dhimmicrat on steroids in response to 9/11 by massively expanding the size, scope, and power of the federal government, ostensibly to protect the homeland from so-called terrorist attacks, but in reality to create a false sense of security so that we could continue accommodating mass Muslim immigration with all of its excess baggage, that in reality is deceptive and covert non-violent jihad for the purpose of infiltration and stealth demographic conquest.

    Thus, the instant the economy headed south in 2008, the budget deficits inevitably exploded through the roof and the national debt began spiraling out of control putting us on the fast track to becoming the next Greece. Yet, we haven't heard one Republican calling for outlawing Islam and banning and reversing mass Muslim immigration with all of its excess baggage so that we can roll back all of GWB's unnecessary massive expansion in the size, scope, and power of the federal government and get our financial house back in order at the same time. As zero Muslim covert jihadists living in America as a fifth column would virtually eliminate the threat of violent jihad attacks on the homeland and at the same time end the much greater long term threat of stealth demographic conquest.

    Moreover, while I have nothing against war since it is a necessary evil, both nation-building missions in Iraq and Afghanistan were incredibly fantasy-based because they were premised on of false PC multicultural myths and misconceptions about Islam and therefore exceedingly counterproductive.

    Thus, it was preordained that both fantasy based nation-building missions in Iraq and Afghanistan would inevitably fail and turn into the two biggest strategic blunders ever in American history, which they inevitably did. It's time for the powers that be to recognize their monstrosity or its time for them to lose their fricking jobs for gross incompetence.

    Indeed, over the past few decades, no amount of apologies for alleged “insults” to Muslims has stopped Islamists form attacking us. Nor have the good deeds benefitting Muslims, from rescuing Bosnians from genocide to liberating Libyans from Gaddafi, stopped jihadists from wanting to kill Americans for an endless list of reasons.

    Of course, when writers like this one call mainstream orthodox Muslims Islamists, which implies that they are radical Muslims that are separate and apart from mainstream orthodox Muslims, the writer helps the facilitate the environment that ensures that average Americans will never be able to understand the reality of Islam.

    Moreover, if this writer believes that the USA rescued Bosnian Muslims from genocide, then he must also believe as well that Bill Clinton never inhaled. There never was a genocide or an impending genocide in Bosnia. The USA was duped by taqiyya by Bosnian President Izetbegovic into fighting a jihad on behalf of Muslims against our Christian Serb allies. That war is a disgrace and a stain on America.

    • Jack

      Yep…spot on….The so called genocide of muslim men and boys in Bosnia is a myth…I saw a piece of film where the muslims were dressing up as serbs and shooting "poor defenceless muslims"…..then when they thought the camera was turned off they all got up off the ground and went through the process again to make it look like a massacre. The film was edited and used by the propagandists to get the West on board to fight the Jihad for the muslims who were getting beaten. IT WORKED like a cham and has been working ever since with the Leftist Liberal crowd…..

    Muslims know that disposing of the koran by burning it is the proper method of disposal.

    IMAM JIHAD TURK (Director of Religious Affairs, Islamic Center of Southern California): "…When Muslims want to respectfully dispose of a text of the Qur’an that is no longer usable, we will burn it. So if someone, for example, in their own private collection or library had a text of the Qur’an that was damaged or that was in disrepair, so the binding was ruined, etc., …. And what I’ll do is I’ll take it to my fireplace at home and burn it there in the fireplace. So I sort of take the pages out and then burn it to make sure that it gets thoroughly charred and is no longer recognizable as script….In the Islamic tradition, it’s the Arabic that is really considered the authentic, original scripture. The very early scripture of the Qur’an—when it was first collated and put into a binding there were a lot of loose papers around, and this was about 1,400 years ago. The first companions of Muhammad, led under the leadership of the third caliph, Uthman, actually instructed the followers to take all of those pages and burn them, and so that kind of set the precedent as to what should be done. If you burn it, it destroys the word, the ink on the paper. It’s no longer perceptible, and so therefore it is no longer scripture. It’s just ashes at that point. …For Muslims, according to Jihad Turk, when done with the proper intent the burning of a damaged or worn out Qur,an is in no way disrespectful. The specific paper and ink may be gone, he says, but the sacred word of God endures. " http://www.pbs.org/wnet/religionandethics/episode

    I think I'm going to move to Canada if Obama makes it another 4 years. And if America's culture still doesn't wake up and improve both its morals, intelligence, and crybaby ways, I'll be compelled to pioneer and successfuly build a moon base before the government or any private financier has the chance to. Or maybe I'd be better off launching myself into the vacuum of space with nothing on.

    Im an American and I despise Americans now due to the fact that a majority of them voted into office Barack Hussein Obama. A sad day in history is when citizens fall for a hollow message based on the words of "Hope and Change" and never once bother to question the man on what the hope and change really is and why he associated himself with radical people, rather they're infatuated with his looks and his celebrity-like status. The man literally looks like a monkey, people. A self-righteous, apologetic, enemy appeasing monkey. If you're not voting for the other guy in the 2012 election, you're an idiot. Plain and simple.

    Once again I say, "cry havoc and let slip the dogs of war".

Useful idiot dhimmis just want no conflict and the alligator to eat them last. Muck the Fuzzlims! It is time to kill 'em all, wrap 'em in their prayer rugs and put 'em all in piles, burn 'em all using Qu'ans for kindling and pork grease for a fire- starter, and let Allah sort 'em out.

It seems the Muslims are stuck back in the 6th Century or thereabouts and why try to bring them to reality when they fight to stay where they are!! I don't know but am open for some new ideas where I don't give up what I believe.

  • sigmund101

    There is a difference between standing up for one's own values and beliefs and descending to the low level of those who attack you. This article blurs that distinction. An apology is not a sign of weakness. In many cases it can be a sign of strength. I doubt that an apology or the lack thereof makes any significant difference in the Afghan reaction to this incident. But our apology makes a difference to us and, in particular, to me. It is a sign that we are maintaining our values and not losing them.

    • Roy

      It is the Muslims who wrote in the Koran defiling it that ought to apologize. Burning the koran is the respectful way to dispose of defiled korans. Muslims defiling the koran you don't see Muslims rioting and killing nor any calls by Muslims to bring those Muslims to justice. Infidels properly disposing of defiled korans by burning which is what Muslims do, you see Muslims go riot and kill.

  • Grazel

    The most of the media and this article do not state the whole of the facts known. These Qur’ans were burned because the Muslim prisoners defiled them. They wrote messages to each other in these books. They were useless because the words of the book were written over. Burning is also the proper method of destruction.

  • http://apollospaeks.blogtownhall.com/ ApolloSpeaks


    On CNN Hillary Clinton was comparing Obama's apology over the Koran burnings with Bush's apologies during the Iraq War-for Abu Ghraib for example. At Abu Ghraib there was prisoner abuse by US soldiers and prision guards which were wrongs that Bush rightly apologized for. At the Afghan prison Moslem inmates were abusing Korans by defacing them with written messages which required their destruction. Obama apologized from weakness and timidity. A courageous President would have defended our troops and told the truth that they were guiltless of any wrong doing.

    • ObamaYoMoma

      Actually, during the Bush administration, the Republican Party, for all intents and purposes, morphed into the second coming of the Dhimmicrat Party and is still virtually indistinguishable from the Dhimmicrat Party today.

      For instance, before the bodies of the dead 9/11 victims had cooled, Bush proclaimed that Islam is a so-called Religion of Peace™ being hijacked by a tiny minority of extremists. He subsequently premised two fantasy based nation-building missions in Iraq and Afghanistan on that same false PC multicultural myth in order to lift up Muslims, which was about as counterproductive as the US lifting up Hitler and the Nazis after WWII, and the inevitable result was the two biggest strategic blunders ever in American history, approximately 4 trillion dollars squandered, and thousands of patriotic American troops either killed or maimed all for nothing.

      Not only that, but instead of outlawing Islam and banning and reversing mass Muslim immigration with all of its excess baggage in response to 9/11, which is really deceptive and covert non-violent jihad for the purpose of infiltration and stealth demographic conquest, Bush like a Dhimmicrat on steroids put the US on the fast track to financial ruin by doubling the size, scope, and power of the federal government, while at the same time also usurping the heretofore constitutionally protected rights and freedoms of the American people, ostensibly to protect the homeland from so-called terrorist attacks, but in reality to create the false sense of security necessary to continue accommodating mass Muslim immigration with all of its excess baggage, which again is really deceptive and covert non-violent jihad for the purpose of infiltration and stealth demographic conquest.

      Of course, the predictable and inevitable outcome of all of Bush's insanity was the instant the economy headed south in 2008, budget deficits immediately skyrocketed through the roof, the national debt began spiraling out of control, the size, scope, and power of the federal government began sucking the wind out of the sails of the economy, and America is on the fast track to becoming the next Greece, and despite all of the unnecessary expansion in the size, scope, and power of the federal government, the truth is the homeland is actually more vulnerable to violent jihad attacks today than even before 9/11 by virtue of the fact that more deceptive and covert jihadists live in America as a fifth column than ever before.

      Thus, to compensate for all of this unhinged insanity, the Fed has been printing money and devaluing our currency at the same time like there are no tomorrows, defense spending is being gutted at the exact worse time, draconian budget cuts are being contemplated, and massive tax increases are being debated.

      However, not one single Republican has suggested outlawing Islam and banning and reversing mass Muslim immigration with all of its excess baggage so that we can roll back all of the totally unnecessary massive expansion of the size, scope,and power of the federal government that Bush like a Dhimmicrat on steroids is responsible for and at the same time get our financial house back in order. As zero Muslim covert jihadists living in America as a fifth column would virtually eliminate the threat of violent jihad attacks on the homeland and at the same time eliminate the much greater long-term threat stemming from stealth demographic conquest. Of course, we will never recoup the trillions of dollars that ramping up all of that massive expansion in the size, scope, and power of the federal government initially cost.

      Hence, one violent jihad attack, one extremely incompetent Republican President masquerading as being a conservative, and just a little over 10 years later, the USA is teetering on the brink of financial ruin thanks to Bush and the Republican Party morphing into the second-coming of the Dhimmicrat Party, and still to this day no one, Republican or Dhimmicrat, has the first clue how to protect and defend America from the threat of Islam, or how to get our financial house back in order. Why? Because the Republican Party and the Dhimmicrat Party, for all intents and purposes, are one and the same.

          Between 10:03 PM and 10:22 PM tonight you hit me up with 11 replies all of them insulting and derogatory as part of you and your leftist moronic buddies stupid campaign of cyber stalking me because first of all, you want to attempt to intimidate and harass me, and second because you want to marginalize me as being an Islamophobe in order to apologize and sympathize with the Muslims in which you idolize and in order to help them like gullible useful idiots to cover up their covert and deceptive non-violent jihad.

          In other words, you spent an average of 1 minute and 43 seconds per posts, which includes locating 11 posts, reading 11 posts (and my posts are painfully long), composing 11 insulting and derogatory replies to them, and finally hitting the submit button. Hell, you couldn't have come close to finding all of them, let alone reading them, much less responding to all 11 of them in 19 minutes, and that irrefutably proves that all of your posts are part of that same childish cyber stalking campaign you and your moonbat buddies have been pursuing against me for months now. As this same pattern of cyber stalking has been repeated numerous times by you and your other unhinged cyber stalker buddies.

          Of course, I had the audacity to respond earlier this morning to a stupid comment made from one of your favorite cyber stalker buddies, which no doubt incited your 11 insulting and derogatory replies tonight.

          Meanwhile, I'm just so proud that little ole me can rankle up the emotions of all you leftwing cyber stalkers so badly. So let me thank you useful idiot loons from the bottom of my heart for being such loyal and generous fans. I truly appreciate it, because without my fans, I would be nothing. Your cyber stalking campaign gives me a deep seated feeling of fulfillment because you picked me out of everyone else to repeatedly cyber stalk, and for that I'm very gracious. Thanks a lot buddies. I'm glad you and your fellow moonbats enjoy my posts so much.

          Indeed, I'd give you my twitter account, but then again you'd not only find out who I am, but you would also join my long list of followers as well so you moonbats could spam my twitter account and it would then take me hours retweeting all your spam.

            I didn't call you an Islamophobe.

            So you're a liar, a coward, and a spamming troll.

    There is no winning hearts and minds in Afghanistan or any Muslim country. Karzai will rather stand by Pakistan, the country who is most responsible for getting the Taliban in power in Afghanistan and dragging it to the stone age because they are Muslim unlike US.

  • Ghostwriter

    Gee. And Muslims continue to wonder why Americans have so little respect for their religion? It's stuff like this that earns that disrespect.

    Wow, this is a horrible website filled with morons. I tried to find out what happened with the Koran burning incident, to find some details of the event through a Google news search, and holy crap I landed in a minefield of BS.

    Is this the site FOX News checks to see what kind of crazy ish they can spin each day?

    Yes, we need to get the hell out of both Afghanistan and Iraq. We never should have been there in the first place. WMD's, no wait connections to 9/11, no wait he's an evil tyrannical man that needs to be stopped! OK let's launch Operation Iraqi Liberation otherwise known as O.I.L. (I'm not making that up, do some homework)

    The Taliban eradicated poppies and therefore heroin production in Afghanistan before we arrived. Since the invasion, which there's never been the attempt of justification for, heroin production's never been higher from that country.

    BUSH should be held responsible for 9/11 and the giant bureaucratic mess he created thereafter. He was commander in chief and we had a complete failure of very basic military protections of our national airspace with Cheney even caught on tape saying that the original order (whatever that was) stands while nervous ATC personnel watched unresponsive planes going to cities.

    Don't get me wrong, Obama sucks too. He hasn't fulfilled any of his campaign promises (in fact he's had a more secretive government than any prior and further destroyed our economy). Pulling out of Iraq was Bush's timeline and we're still spending $2 Billion a week in Afghanistan alone.

    Anyway, it's BS that OUR military would do something as stupid as burn a religious text of an indigenous people while occupying their country.

    Finally, if you're afraid of Muslims, you don't know any.

    Don't bother replying to this to reach me. I'm never coming back to this crap hole again.

      Having 3 or 4 morons on this site, would not be a bad number. It would be lower than the hard left web sites you normally visit. And if you leave (please do), there would be one less moron here. While you are at it, please take 2 of the other morons with you: randy and obym.

      I doubt very much that anyone in this comments section, or the author, are "afraid of muslims".
      On the contrary, they are criticizing those who are "afraid of muslims", and they seem to know lots of them.

      I have met a few muslims, mainly of Turkish decent, they seem very disrespectful of women, at least of independent, adult women unwilling to cover themselves from head to foot to "protect" males from unclean thoughts. You see, we tend to think that a person's thoughts are their own responsibility, and not ours. Any violence offered us to "teach us to be submissive" may aim to make us frightened of muslims, but it just makes us despise them as spoiled, uncivilized brats.

      Mainly, I believe it would be entirely honest to say that "we are pissed off with muslims", we are pissed off that they keep ramming their religion down own thoughts, I mean really, who gives a damn what Mo wanted you to do? Why the hell should we cfitizens of the enlightenment obey stupid 7th. century rules? We are really pissed off.

      I do hope you don't live in America – no, you are no doubt European. Possibly living in Luton?

      I like much of what you say, Grover – except where you say that it was stupid of our troops to have burned copies of the Koran. It turns out that burning old, obsolete, unwanted Korans is the proper procedure – just as it is proper to burn old, unwanted, wornout U.S. flags I have yet to read what our troops did in addition to 'burning' these Korans that has stirred up the locals. Perhaps it was incorrect to apologize to the Muslims – if the issue is burning Korans. RWA

  • hammar

    muslims are a dead faith…one where the mob rules…and everyone else suffers….the koran is nothing more
    than a ridiculous book that makes no sense..unless you are illiterate like our leftist media president, and all the
    democrats,though they are not really a political party anymore..than the muslims are faithful..Pray to Jesus Our Lord and God

  • WilliamJamesWard

    The statement "Much ado about nothing" it lives in this situation. Ask yourself if you give a damn about_a burning Qur'ass…………..It is a prime example of how low our political classless idiots are, Obama is_a fool, Clinton is a fool and all who follow fools are fools. So again thank you to the morons who put_this absurdity into the Presidency, if you vote for him again may your index finger fall off preceding_other body parts.

  • maghrebchristians

    Talking about the Quarn burning, Pastor Terry Jones that he will purn the Quarn as a protest if they kill Pastor youcef in Iran.

    Read about it



  • LindaRivera

    Please get this info on articles!

    Violent Muslims went into a murderous rage killing and wounding many innocents over Americans disposing of Korans that had messages written in them by Muslim terrorists.
    How strange, because Pakistani Muslims DELIBERATELY defile their own Korans. Will distraught and outraged Obama, Clinton and U.S. military leaders wring their hands in horror and demand Muslims apologize and demand Muslims be brought to account for defiling Korans?

    Why are Pakistanis throwing away 100s of Korans into sewage filled canal?
