Quran Burning Ceremonies Could Affect Troops

Burning a Koran could cost troops in Afghanistan. In the United States, there are several groups planning to burn Qurans, which are the holy book for Islam. This is just yet another example of the tensions that are building up between the western world and Islamic societies.

There is a lot of animosity towards those who practice Islam - even those who have lived in the United States all of their lives. After the 9/11 terrorist attacks, Muslims are put on the same pedestal as the radical Jihad followers who perpetrated the attack.

The sad realization is that many in the Islamic world frown on what happened to the US, but rather than be sympathetic our treatment of the Muslim society has caused them to put up their own walls, too.

So why can't we just get along? I am sure we wouldn't take too kindly to a group of Islamic individuals burning our Bibles during Christmas (or any time of the year) - so why burn a Quran - especially during their Holy Month of Ramadan?

  1. Perhaps Pastor Jones of the ironically named Dove World Outreach Center should show some real courage and make a powerful statement by flying to Afghanistan and burning a pile of Qurans in a Kabul marketplace.

    On the upside, at least Pastor Fred Phelps of Westboro Baptist Church has faded into the background for the time being.
