Muslims: Do What We Say, Or Else!

Burning books is symbolic. There's no chance that burning books will reduce the global supply. If book-burning is symbolic, what does burning a Koran symbolize? Many things. For one, burning a Koran symbolizes the end of female enslavement that defines the life of every woman who lives in an islamic nation and the lives of muslim women who live in free countries too.

Muslims -- muslim men -- oppose, violently oppose the idea of freedom for women. A muslim woman enjoying the sexual freedom of Western women is likely to become the victim of an honor killing.

Should people who love freedom burn a book that teaches the enslavement of women?

Quran burning plan stirs outrage in Muslim world

KABUL, Afghanistan – Hundreds of angry Afghans burned an American flag and chanted "Death to the Christians" on Thursday to protest plans by a small American church to torch copies of the Muslim holy book on the anniversary of the Sept. 11 terror attacks.

Local officials in Mahmud Raqi, the capital of the Kapisa province some 100 kilometers (60 miles) northeast of Kabul, estimated that up to 4,000 people took part in the protest. But NATO spokesman James Judge said the protest numbered between 500 to 700 people.

"The Afghan national police prevented the protest from overwhelming an Afghan military outpost," and dispersed the demonstration, he told The Associated Press.

Judge added that the Quran burning is "precisely the kind of activity the Taliban uses to fuel their propaganda efforts to reduce support" for coalition forces.

Abdul Hadi Rostaqi, a cleric council in Afghanistan's largely peaceful Balkh province, also said Thursday that, if the burning goes ahead, "a big protest will be held" in the provincial capital Mazar-i-Sharif next Monday. Protesters would hurl stones at NATO-led troops stationed in the city — one of the country's main centers of the Islamic teaching.

Religious and political leaders across the Muslim world, as well as several U.S. officials, have asked the church to call off the plan, warning it would lead to violence against Americans.

The Rev. Terry Jones, of the Dove Outreach Center in Gainesville, Florida, has vowed to go ahead with the bonfire on Saturday, even though he has been denied the required permit.

About 200 people marched and burned a U.S. flag in the central Pakistani city of Multan.

"If Quran is burned it would be beginning of destruction of America," read one English-language banner held up by the protesters, who chanted "Down with America!"

Iran's Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki also warned of repercussions, saying the burning would "face reactions by the world's Muslims as well as followers of other religions," according to the official IRNA news agency.

Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton has denounced the planned burning and Gen. David Petraeus, the top U.S. and NATO commander in Afghanistan, has said it could lead to attacks on international troops.

There are also fears of a backlash against Christians in predominantly Muslim countries. Canon Andrew White, the chaplain of an Anglican church in Baghdad, said the Iraqi military had warned him that his church had been threatened.

Security was beefed up around the Church of Virgin Mary in central Baghdad on Thursday, with military vehicles blocking the entrance to the church and more soldiers were deployed to guard it.

Well, no slappz, you hit the nail on the head. I live just about a quarter of a mile from the proposed Murfreesboro mosque. We are gathering funds for the legal battles to come to stop the building. We are having regular marches, town meetings, give short speeches to the city counsel members to convence the city counsel to reconsider their discision to allow the work on the mosque to continue. Attorney fees we have been told at last nights meeting was going to be $15,000 a month. They were asking people to give $100.00 a month to fight this evil from taking hold in Murfreesboro.

Eb in Murfreesboro,

It's astonishing that people who see this issue as a debate about freedom of religion cannot see how wrong they are.

Islam is a political doctrine operating beneath a veneer of religion. Each mosque is another foothold in a territory marked for eventual conquest.

If islam were no more than a religion, its ambitions would equal the ambitions of other religions and we would have little to worry about.

But, inasmuch as there are 57 islamic nations in the world -- nations that are, by law, run by the words of the Koran -- there's plenty to worry about.

Islam is a belief system that includes the enslavement of women, female genital mutilation, honor killings and a rejection of every basic American right, including Freedom of Religion, Freedom of Speech and free enterprise.
