So, Just How Ridiculously Dumb Is Obama's Muslim-Appeasing Apology For The Afghan Quran Burning?Topics: Political News and commentaries, Understanding Islam
McClatchy Newspapers reports that President Barack Obama apologized Thursday for the accidental burning of Qurans by U.S. forces in Afghanistan as anti-American demonstrations raged for a third consecutive day, leaving two NATO troops and at least five Afghans dead and 26 Afghans wounded nationwide. The White House defended Obama's apology by saying it was "wholly appropriate" given the "understandable sensitivities" to the issue.
Up front, why is it that the whole damned world has to be so concerned about loony Muslim "sensitivities" ... other than the fact that they're so prone to acting like they're living in the 6th Century and have no place in the modern world. Meanwhile where's all the outrage and concern for Christian and Jewish 'sensitivities' over all the Christians and Jews murdered and discriminated against all over the world by Muslims ... what about their sensitivities!
Sorry, just had to get that off my chest.
As for just how ridiculously dumb Obama's Muslim-appeasing apology for the quran burning is ... the short answer, very dumb, totally uncalled for, it makes the U.S. and Obama himself look weak, and is certain to encourage Afghan Islamists to continue to act out with the usual Muslim insane, totally inappropriate, violence more appropriate for the Middle Ages than the 21st Century.
Let's get some facts straight here that show how ridiculous and uncalled for Obama's apology truly is:
First of all, the books were removed from the library and slated for disposal because the Islamist detainees had penned extremist messages inside the books and exchanged them among other detainees.In other words, the Muslims themselves desecrated the Qurans in the first place by defacing them, and burning the
Secondly, under Islam, burning the Quran is an accepted practice for disposal.
This, not to mention Sarah Palin's point that "Obama apologizes for the inadvertent Koran burning this week; now the U.S. trained and protected Afghan Army can apologize for killing two of our soldiers yesterday." Newt Gingrich ditto'd Palin's outrage for the same reason but went a step further, saying that Afghan President Hamid Karzi owes the U.S. an apology for the shootings and that the Afghans "do not deserve the apology of the United States."
Meanwhile, Afghanistan is demanding that NATO adopt Sharia, put Qur'an-burners on trial -- Karzai says NATO agrees:
[...] Afghanistan wants NATO to put on public trial those who burned copies of the Koran at a NATO base, President Hamid Karzai's office said on Thursday, after a third day of bloody protests over the incident.As Robert Spencer notes at the link, what could the charge possibly be? Whoever did it didn't break any law except Sharia, which NATO has not (yet) adopted. And that's what this whole controversy is really all about: it's another Islamic supremacist attempt to force non-Muslims to abide by Sharia provisions.
It said NATO had agreed to a trial, but that could not be immediately confirmed.
[...] "NATO officials, in response to a request for the trial and punishment of the perpetrators ... promised this crime will brought to court as soon as possible," Karzai's office said in a statement.
