Those yahoos in that FL church who plan to reenact one of the worst aspects of Nazi politically-correct policing (book burning) are demonstrating why just because an act may be legal, it still not ought to be done. Burning the Quran is not going to enrage the militants to new levels of hate. They already want to kill Americans in droves, they simply lack the capability to do so (until the Mad Mullahs of Iran get a nuke). And I doubt it will significantly increase recruitment into the suicide corpse – Americans patrolling Taliban, al Qaeda and Muslim lands are a sufficient affront to those who dream of dying a Jihadi death to keep the ranks filled to some level.
But if even a single American dies because of this self-promoting stunt, then this act of book burning is a unforgivable sin – a premeditated sin. All these so-called people of faith behind it are going to rot in hell for not checking their egos and, instead, destroying a good life. A life better than any of them.
The worst aspect of this is the lame excuse these people use for not listening to what everyone else is trying to explain to them. They don’t get that this kind of act is not what the nation wants linked to its remembrance of 9-11. Their rationale (if anyone would dare use ‘rational’ in the same sentence) is they want the militants to know how it feels when they burn American flags and bibles. The so-called thinking is we should act like fanatical Islamo Fascists in response to fanatical Islamo Fascist. Pathetic.
9-11 is a day to remember those who died and those who sacrificed themselves to save others (firefighters, police, medical personnel, the passengers and crew of flight UA 93, etc). It is a day to reaffirm why we sacrificed so many in the deserts of Iraq and the mountains of Afghanistan in order to free Islam and the world from the cutthroat terrorists. It is a day to look back and remember how, on 9-12-01, al Qaeda and Bin Laden where the future of Islam, and how today they are seen as the enemy of Islam by a vast majority of Muslims across this world. It is a day to reflect on how we can help Islam deal with the cancer of Islamo Fascists, and emerge out of all this once again a tolerant, peaceful and modern religion. 9-11 is not about creating anger, which will lead to more useless bloodshed.
It is not a day for ego-stroking, grand-standing that lowers us to the same gutter-level as the sick people who perpetrated the mass murder on 9-11. Whatever that sad group of people in FL do, they are no better than that whacked out church who protest the funerals of our fallen military heroes. They will not succeed in highjacking the memorial of 9-11 from this great nation. They will not divert us from the cause we took up with President Bush, when he used that bullhorn on top of the rubble of the World Trade Center. We will bring justice and enlightenment and tolerance – not hate and book burning.
