I have to open with that I think Terry Jones is an idiot,media whore and all round ding-a-ling.
I will also state that the world really needs a Bar-B-Quran-a-cue and it needs it for one simple reason. The world must put an end to the ridiculous notion that the Muslims are allowed to unilaterally call the shots.
I’ve confronted Islamophobes on the internet and in real life and this post is not my abdication ;however, it is the truth.
Let’s look at Pakistan and their Interior Minister Rehman Malik.Here are excerpts from Pakistan’s big daily The Nation.It reports on a letter the minister sent to Interpol.
Rehman Malik in his latter said that burning of Muslims’ Holy Quran is a big crime and any such attempt would put the global peace in jeopardy.
So let’s be clear here. The burning book is an inanimate object. The absolutely irrational response is not.The burnt book doesn’t jeopardize peace,the reaction does.
…and termed this act as a crime against humanity.
I’m sorry. A burning book is a crime against humanity. Mmmm have you taken a good look at the Taliban lately.It also must be noted that in most of the world burning a book isn’t illegal.
“Interpol must play its role to stop this heinous criminal act, as it will bring irreversible damage to world peace, especially when the world is fighting a war against terrorism,”
I respect the reality that many Muslims are indeed involved in the fight against terrorism. Sadly it is equally true that an overwhelming majority of the terrorists the world is at war with are….Muslims.
…halting the insane so called priest for committing this highly criminal act.
a) he is possibly insane,definitely a dick head. b) it isn’t an illegal act.
“Muslim Ummah would be outraged by such an act and feelings of the Muslims must be respected,”
MUST BE RESPECTED!!!!!! Which is the same reason we’re wrong when you want to stone a woman. We’re not allowed to visit a certain city.We can’t give out a Bible in many if not all the predominantly Muslim nations. Hear hear you all wrote the fucking book on respect.
Make the stories go away.
So many sound bites,so many images and so much wasted life went into this story.One of the most outrageous ones was that of Angelina Jolie speaking while on tour of the flood ravaged Pakistan. She makes it a point to speak out against the circus that is Dove World outreach all the while submitting to an asinine cultural rule.
I’m usually a supporter of the adage “when in Rome…”but I’m really not feeling it anymore. I hope I can get it back.Perhaps I can when I am assured every Muslim women in the West that would prefer not to wear a burka or hijab is allowed to enjoy the freedoms of the nation they reside in. Like France,Britain,Australia or the United States of America.
I don’t watch too often but I did catch one where he lampooned the whole Ground Zero Mosque debate. He basically concluded with humor the reality of things. No matter what….the jihadists win. Remember that the next time you ponder the definition of terrorism.When someone else takes action or merely puts forth threats that in the end alter your behavior and/or beliefs you have lost something.
We have lost something and I dare say it isn’t a little thing.
