Petraeus Condemns U.S. Church Plan to Burn Qurans and Mosque Supporters Double Standards of Freedom Religion

September 11, 2010
so now the Mosque supporters want to limit the freedom of religion of Christians?  …I don’t get it. 
The top U.S. commander in Afghanistan said the planned burning of Qurans on Sept. 11 by a small Florida church could put the lives of American troops in danger and damage the war effort.  Gen. David Petraeus said the Taliban would exploit the demonstration for propaganda purposes, drumming up anger toward the U.S. and making it harder for allied troops to carry out their mission of protecting Afghan civilians.

It is not in the spirit of the constitution for a military high ranking official to speak out against a group of believers when he is obviously enabling another very violent ideology. He is only highlighting why we can’t trust him. It also becomes very obvious that the reason these wars have become less violent in the short term is because we have surrendered to Islam. The Jizya has become soldiers blood. will we learn anything from the history of Khaibar? we don’t even address why Hamas has called their missiles Khaibar.  

“It could endanger troops and it could endanger the overall effort,” Gen. Petraeus said in an interview. “It is precisely the kind of action the Taliban uses and could cause significant problems. Not just here, but everywhere in the world we are engaged with the Islamic community.”

[Petraus.1]Hundreds of Afghans attended a demonstration in Kabul on Monday to protest the plans of Florida pastor Terry Jones, who has said he will burn copies of Islam’s holy book to mark the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. Afghan protesters chanted “death to America,” and speakers called on the U.S. to withdraw its troops. Some

Military officials fear the protests will likely spread to other Afghan cities, especially if the event is broadcast or ends up on Internet video.

Mr. Jones, head of the 50-member Dove World Outreach Center in Gainesville, Fla., said in a statement that “We understand the General’s concerns. We are sure that his concerns are legitimate.” Nonetheless, he added, “We must send a clear message to the radical element of Islam. We will no longer be controlled and dominated by their fears and threats.”
Mr. Jones has been denied a permit for the demonstration, but has said he plans to go forward with the protest.

The hypocrisy here is that these people were making false defenses to freedom of religion and now they want to censor a church. The only thing consistent is a Sharia enabling world view. The fact remains that religious practice is not protected by our Constitution, only religious belief.

It is their church. They decided to burn the Quran. Even if our government continues to call a hateful violent ideology like Islam a religion then this actually is not permitted because like I was saying before there is a difference between religious belief and religious practice or assemblage. Treat the goose like the gander. If you have to protect hate because it is a religion then you have to protect hate because it is a religion.  (I would argue that hating Islam is not hate) The best solution is to realize that hate is not a religion… btw.  Islam as practiced and dictated by Wahabists and Al Azahar is not a religion… it is hate. and I understand full well that other faiths consider the Quran holy, but Mosque supporters can not have it both ways.
