Florida Pastor Still Burned Up About Islam

Florida Pastor Terry Jones announced today that he still plans to go ahead and burn 200 Korans on Saturday, despite calls from U.S. military leaders and Christian and Jewish religious leaders around the world for him to reconsider. No doubt, Jones has a First Amendment right to do this, but it will only fan the flames in what seems to be an emerging Holy War between Islam and Christianity in the United States and abroad.¬†Al queda has used incidents like Abu Ghraib and the Muhammad cartoons¬†to recruit more people into their terrorist network. This Koran burning incident won’t help and could put U.S. troops in Afghanistan in even more danger. Yes, we should be aggressive in fighting Al queda and terrorism, but we also need to win the hearts and minds of moderate Muslims around the world. Book burning incidents like this won’t help. What’s your opinion on this issue? Please comment below.

  1. There are five instances in the Qu’ran, Surah and Hadith where it says that Jews, Christians and Pagans must be purged. I have to wonder if we’re being as ignorant/naive about these as Americans were about the Nazi party back in the late 1930s.

  2. Jackson Kapp says:

    Walter C. is right. The Koran exists as it is. As a Muslim, a person could ignore those passages, but many of them do not. Maybe we can have a rewrite like with the Bible over the centuries.

    Are there naive Americans who just want to make friends with everyone in the world and are more concerned with how other nations perceive us-yes I live with them all around me. I try to see the bigger picture. That minister in Florida is an idiot though in any case, and should be arrested just for existing.

    The appeasers will always think that other side has good intentions. Not in the case of radical Islam though I’m sorry to tell you. See the film “Remains of the Day” starring Anthony Hopkins. It’s a slow moving but fascinating story of an appeaser before WWII. Hopkins is a man servant in his home. The story is ostensibly about him, but much deeper if you stick with it.
