Armed with a suspicious mustache and a 0.40calibre Gun , Rev. Terry Jone is not exactly paining a particularity graceful picture for the Evangelical Church. Facing mounting pressure from Military, Political and Religious leaders to stop his plans he fears for his personal safety (hence the gun). To no surprise, he has received Death Threats (Well, it is America after all!)
He wants to have 9-11 a day to remember as an International Burn a Koran Day. Gen. David Petraeus took a rare step of forming an opinion on domestic affairs something which Military leaders do not normally do – it is beyond the scope of their job. Quite rightly, he suspects that if it were to go ahead, Islamic extremists are likely to use the images of Americans burning a Holy Book to infuriate Islamic people in general.
The cycle of hatred between Islam and the Christians so long as idiots do not respect each other. The Christians killed the Islams and take their land, so the Islams kill the Christians and take back the land, for centuries when will it ever end? In a time where international politics is strained just by the mention of a Holy book it is dishonorable to try tactics like this. Even worse to do it on 9-11 a day where hatred is already going to be high.
The major of Gainsville whom was also a target of Jones campaign of terror for being openly gay has declared that 9-11 shall be a day of Inter-faith Solidarity. This is a more logical approach to religious quarrels get the people to understand each other , see that there is more than one point of view in the world perhaps with time people will work together in co-operation.
Of course, as usual, the Muslims are having the exact wrong response to this kind of activity. Mohammad Mukhtar has called upon fellow Islamic Extremists to react by killing Americans wherever they be.
“The Quran, according to Jones, is “evil” because it espouses something other than biblical truth and incites radical, violent behavior among Muslims.”
Surely if the Quran is preaching radical non biblical truth then the Bible he so loves should be considered equal to that.
The God of the Bible also allows slavery, including selling your own daughter as a sex slave (Exodus 21:1-11), child abuse (Judges 11:29-40 and Isaiah 13:16), and bashing babies against rocks (Hosea 13:16 & Psalms 137:9).
Now is the time to arrest and prevent this injustice before the cycle of violence gets worse than it already is.
