Afghans shout anti-U.S. slogans as they burn tires and block a highway during a protest in reaction to a small American church's plan to burn copies of the Quran, at Jalalabad, east of Kabul, Afghanistan, Friday, Sept. 10, 2010. Religious and political leaders across the Muslim world welcomed a decision by the church to suspend its plans to torch copies of their holy book but some said Friday the damage has already been done.

Pastor Terry Jones, whether anyone is supportive or not of his originally stated intent to burn copy(ies) of the Muslim religious book in order to make a point, is selected as the person of the week…

In this age of instant worldwide communication, it is noteworthy that any single person can have so much influence, but also noteworthy that through threatened violence against persons and property by those who opposed the pastor’s actions, the leadership of the United States of America has come out so strongly against the burning issue so as not to antagonize the Muslims.

Additionally, the proponents of building the mosque so close to “ground Zero” have also now stated that if the mosque is not built at its presently desired site, that too will inflame the muslim extremists, world-wide,  so for America’s safety, they say, the mosque needs to be built

Food for thought…

  1. Blackmail, pure and simple – designed for the simpletons, apologists and appeasers who currently direct our international policies.

  2. You know, those people moslems will do anything they want and we are not to blame because they do ugly things anytime they want.

  3. Your point is well taken!

  4. If we give in to the muslims because they threaten to kill people who write stories or pictures and they do not like, or because we are all afraid they are going to hurt us, I think that will encourage their violence.
