Qur'an Burning; Idiot's Attitude: Respect for Islam The video has disappeared from the AP article at Yahoo News. It is still available at the N.Y. Times. 48 seconds into the video, general John Allen , Cmdr of Nato forces:
The article quotes the White House spokesman thusly.
From Reliefweb, we learn of a U.N. statement expressing the same "respect", describing remarks by SRSG Kubiš.
I highlighted one clause that appears in other articles, but not within quotes. I do not know whether Carney uttered or implied the sentiment expressed in the highlighted clause.
From CBSNEWS we learn that a military source said that the Qur'ans were removed from the prison library because they "contained extremist messages or inscriptions". The implication is that prisoners had made marginal notes. Exactly what was in those notes? Were they operational or motivational messages? How would operational notes get out of the prison to those who would implement them? What is the difference between motivational messages and the Qur'an, which exhorts Muslims to conquer the world? If we don't want them to have access to incitement to violence, then they should not have been given access to Qur'ans, hadith, tafsir & jurisprudence or the writings of Maududi, Qutb, Al-Banna or Azam. Is there any limit to the stupidity & hypocrisy of our traitors? Yeah, General, Taliban are sure to believe that Qur'ans were collected, removed and sent to the garbage pile purely by accident, without intent to destroy them. We did not want the prisoners to use them, the books are not in our language, and we did not want the marginal notes to get out, so we disposed of the, permanently. You placed yourself in a bad position: you are either incompetent or a liar. Which is it, or are you both? Removing the Qur'ans is not your error. Burning them is not your mistake. Doing it in public, within sight of the enemy is a fatal mistake which has led to a dozen deaths and will probably cause more death and suffering. Next time, incinerate the crap privately, in a proper facility and don't advertise it. Do any of those involved, including the White House, Department of Defense, Department of State and United Nations comprehend the plain meaning of words? They said that they "respect Islam". Three classes of people "respect Islam": ignoramuses, damned fools and Muslims. Unfortunately, those classes are not mutually exclusive. If you can respect a mercenary war cult whose doctrines sanctify genocidal conquest, terrorism & slavery, then you have a terrible mental or moral defect sufficient to warrant your removal from the gene pool of the human race and from high office. Islam is not incidental to the Accursed Abomination and its aftermath; it is the central issue. Allah's damnable imperatives, promises and threats which motivated the Magnificent Nineteen to slaughter 3000 innocent people, are at the core of the problem. It is not possible to remove and permanently exclude Afghanistan from membership in the set of terror sponsoring states without first removing Islam; Allah's yoke of slavery from the souls and necks of the people of Afghanistan and their regime. So long as they remain Muslim, all the blood and treasure we have expended there are wasted, sacrificed to the demon of political correctness. Brigadier General S.K. Malik gave us the key to victory in page sixty of "The Quran'ic Concept of War" but our leaders are traitors, unwilling to seize the key, insert it in the lock and turn it. Pay particular attention to the sentences I have emphasized in this crucial quote.
cutting its lines of communication or depriving it of its routes
of withdrawal. It is basically related to the strength or weakness
of the human soul. It can be instilled only if the opponent's
Faith is destroyed. Psychological dislocation is temporary;
spiritual dislocation is permanent. Psychological dislocation can be
produced by a physical act but this does not hold good of the
spiritual dislocation. To instill terror into the hearts of the enemy,
it is essential. in the ultimate analysis, to dislocate his Faith. An
invincible Faith is immune to terror. A weak Faith offers inroads
to terror. The Faith conferred upon us by the Holy Qur'an has
the inherent strength to ward off terror from us and to enable
us to strike terror into the enemy. Whatever the form or type of
strategy directed against the enemy, it must, in order to be effective,
be capable of striking terror into the hearts of the enemy. A strategy
that fails to attain this condition suffers from inherent drawbacks
and weaknesses; and should be reviewed and modified. This rule
is fully applicable to nuclear as well as conventional wars. It is
equally true of the strategy of nuclear deterrence in fashion
today. To be credible and effective, the strategy of deterrence
must be capable of striking terror into the hearts of the enemy.
If we do not destroy Islam, nuking Afghanistan & Pakistan is our only hope of victory: there will be no alternative to complete extermination. The people of those enslaved nations must be made to comprehend the fact that Allah is an impotent idol whose threat and promise are vain. They must throw off Islam's yoke of slavery or they must be exterminated. Emancipation is morally superior to extermination. We needed to get started eleven years ago.
