The other day, someone burned three copies of the Islamic terror-text, the koran in front of a mosque in Dearborn Mi. A debate could go on endlessly about the wisdom, utility and decency of this act. But the imam who works at that mosque had this to say about the event:
Just to be perfectly clear here Al-Husainy, burning a few copies of a crappy book that pretty much says nothing other than inspiring violence, genocide and hatred is not terrorism.
This, Boko Haram stone & buried Chibok Girls to Death , is terrorism.
This, ISIS Leader: ‘See You in New York’ is terrorism.
This, Nigerian villagers ‘killed in Boko Haram church attack’ is terrorism.
This, We’ve Lost 750 Churches To Boko Haram Attacks – PFN is terrorism.
This, Gunmen kill nine in northeast Nigeria church attack is terrorism.
This, Hindu temple attacked, set on fire in Pakistan is terrorism.
This, report on Muslim forced prostitution of British girls in the UK is terrorism.
I could go on pasting till I had carpal-tunnel syndrome and not run out of genuine Islamic horror and terror and still just be dealing with the last 12 months Al-Husainy, and I don’t see you getting your ball-gown or turban in a twist over any one of those.
As for burning korans, that is what we call 1st amendment rights for those that have/had them. For the rest of us, I recommend carrying an honest translation of koran around in your coat pocket for the purpose of demonstrating to people you might run into socially how pretty much every single page of it contains instructions and even demands to hate, kill and commit real acts of violence, terror and even genocide against all non-muslims.
Allah’s Apostle said, “I have been sent with the shortest expressions bearing the widest meanings, and I have been made victorious with terror (cast in the hearts of the enemy), and while I was sleeping, the keys of the treasures of the world were brought to me and put in my hand.” Abu Huraira added: Allah’s Apostle has left the world and now you, people, are bringing out those treasures (i.e. the Prophet did not benefit by them).
