We have free speech in America and enjoy the freedom but with free speech comes consequences. The burning of the Koran could put our troops at risk. This kind of demonstration of hate could mean problems for Americans everywhere. Terry Jones’ September 11th stunt could ignite violence. Burning the Koran is an insult to Islam and Muslims around the world. It is wrong! Does Terry Jones not care for the safety of our troops? Hatred stirs up strife but love covers all transgressions.
What if another religious group threaten to burn your Holy Book? What would you do and would you care?
Update: Where are the other religious leaders, and when are they going to speak out on this atrocity?
General David Petraeus has condemned a Florida church’s plans to burn Qurans this week, warning that the scene “could endanger troops” in Afghanistan.
Petraeus told The Wall Street Journal Monday that Pastor Terry Jones’ September 11 stunt could ignite violence from Taliban forces already versed in harnessing American headlines as propaganda:
“It could endanger troops and it could endanger the overall effort,” Gen. Petraeus said in an interview with The Wall Street Journal. “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.”
