BURNING KORANS IS A BAD IDEA

I disapprove of Priest Terry Jones' decision to burn Korans on 9/11/10
because it may cause the unnecessary deaths of American Armed Forces
in and near Afganistan, as well as causing mission failure.

I hope that he 'll reconsider and cancel his plans,
however, he has as much First Amendment right of free expression
to do THAT, as the Moslems have to build their mosque near the World Trade Center, effectively giving us the finger,
gloating over their defeat of American defenses on 9/11/1.

Jones and the NY Moslems have both thawt up terrific ways to make enemies.

Sorry to interrupt David - but when I first read this I read it as:

BURNING KOREANS IS A BAD IDEA

And I thought to myself - YES IT IS!

And BURNING KORANS IS A BAD IDEA TOO!

@OmSigDAVID,
David- I agree. I think that any kind of book burning is disgusting, and this time there may be serious ramifications. General Petraeus warned that an act like that could inflame terrorists around the world. I think that he may just be right.

@Phoenix32890,
I think some fence-sitting Muslims will possibly become violent enemies of America, or at least abettors of such.

@edgarblythe,
Hadn't thought about that, but you may be right. Any time a person is put into an "us or them" category, the sides become hardened.

I recently read something written by a moderate American citizen Muslim who has lived in the US for her entire life. She says that since 9/11, she has felt perpetually frightened.

The purpose of the 9/11/1 attacks was to scare and embarrass America.

@OmSigDAVID,
I agree with you on that one. The problem is that we need to be careful of a couple of things. One, is painting with so broad a brush that some moderate Muslims will become radicalized. The other is that burning Korans will give the terrorists an excuse to escalate their terror tactics.

David- from my point of view, we have been put into a corner, into a lose-lose situation. I don't think that the administration has a workable idea that would stop the violence, once and for all.

@Phoenix32890,
I cannot disagree with u,
but I must confess to very high ignorance of the proportion of Moslems
who were rooting for, cheering, applauding and dancing in the streets with ecstatic glee in Moslem countries,
even including Kuwait, which we rescued from Saddam,
as distinct from Moslems who disapproved of the 9/11 destruction, if such there BE.

I have no idea of whether any Moslems were on our side then or now.

I have an open mind, but I m skeptical.

If I was young and healthy, I would gather a bunch of friends with fire extinguishers to prevent the fires. If that didn't work, when the idiots try to start a fire, we would spray them with water canons , defeating their attempts. They might be a little wet, but not burned.

If all of this didn't work, I would report to the police of litter on the property and have them arrested for littering. Then we would pack up the books and donate them to a library.

Then if all of this didn't work, I would pack up and move to Sweden, because I'm so disgusted and ashamed of some Americans.

@BumbleBeeBoogie,
If thay own the Korans,
then thay have the right to burn them, the same as hamburgers or porkchops.
U have no right to squirt anyone and u r subject to self defense of the victims for your attacks.

U have as much right to wet them as we have to wet the workers who r building the offensive Mosque.

Thay have a legal right to litter their own property
with the Korans; u have no right to rob them of their Korans, as u plan.

Sweden is a TERRIFIC idea; u might like North Korea too.
GOOD BYE!!

@BumbleBeeBoogie,
At any given time in a country of 300 million, I'm sure you can find lots of Americans to be disgusted at and ashamed of. I don't think that would drive me to move. These people are no more representative of Americans than terrorists are representative of Muslims in general.

I hope ALWAYS to so conduct myself
as to PERPETUATE your sentiment; I 'd be alarmed, if u changed your mind.

That applies with equal force to any other commies or nazis.

@engineer,
It is possible that the deceased terrorists (Atta, et al)
represented the vu of the other Moslems.
We do not know how pervasive among Moslems that point of vu IS.

I have to agree with you again. The radicals' strength is that we have really no idea as to the extent of the radicalism. On the other hand, to me it would be unconscionable if we treated innocent Muslims the way that we treated Japanese Americans in WWII. (I am not even thinking of the concentration camps, just the ill will that we harbored towards the Japanese Americans.)

That goes back to my earlier point. Damned if you do, damned if you don't.

Arabia is allegedly America 's friend.
Yet, I 've heard that their very young children
have been tawt in school, by religious teachers,
that we r horrible and dangerous because we r not Moslems.

Nor do we know how prevalent the Koran burning view is among Americans.

That's an interesting rumor, but that's all it is. Once, I was hiring for a new position and the best candidate had a rumor floating around about a personnel issue he had in a former job. One of the people on my review committee said "why take a risk if there is a rumor out there." My answer was that we don't make personnel decisions based on rumor and innuendo. We contacted the previous manager and found the rumor was inaccurate and spread maliciously, so we hired him as he was the most qualified. Given the charged atmosphere in politics these days and the subjegation of truth to ideology, I would be hesitant to believe things that "I've heard" about how children in foreign countries are taught.
