Posted on 09/07/2010 1:22:42 PM PDT by Amerisrael
This comes to mind in light of General Petraeus's warning "against" the planned Koran burning protest by an independent fringe church in Florida. The wrong way to protest.
In Afghanistan, where General Petraeus is the new commander, Bibles were confiscated by U.S. military authorities from a soldier and burned last year.
That was an absoluely repugnant action. One that every U.S. citizen in this country should have protested and denounced.
And why did our U.S. military authorities in Afghanistan do that?
-because Al-jazerra reported it's "concern" that the Bibles could be given to Muslims and used to share with them the Good News of forgiveness of sins through Yeshua [ Jesus], the Messiah.
The U.S. military authorities caved in and made "appeasement".
We are told that our troops are in Afghanistan to prevent it from becoming a safe haven for terrorists.
What about the safe haven for terrorists in Iran that is on the very brink of obtaining nuclear weapons and our military under Obama will do nothing to stop them.?
Or the safe haven for terrorists in Lebanon that Obama wants to go ahead and give $100 million in military aid and and equipment to the Hezbollah/Lebanese army?
Or the safe haven for terrorists in Gaza that our government has already given $millions in aid to?
Our government under Obama has done nothing but embolden the jihadist enemies of the free-West since he became president.
Our U.S. military should not be supporting an Afghan government that will not accord true freedom of religion and speech for all it's citizens.
We remember the outrageous matter of an Afghan man who embraced Christianity and then faced the death penalty in the Afghan court system.
In this country we have freedom of religion. Freedom of speech, and expression guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution.
Freedoms that Islamists are using against us in oder to advance the Islamization of America,--

first of all the General needs to focus on fighting this war and changing the ROE , Not be telling s small group of folks what they should not do.
Secondly I bet a hundred this came from obama.
Our military burns bibles because they upset muslims but they kill us???.
As for the General saying it will put our military in harms way, er they already are , we’re shooting them and bombing them while they already try to kill us.
Now why is the black panthers doing there and who told them to get there?s
Anyone form the white house sending the shock thugs out again knowing the justice dept will do nothing to them.
They can kill us, burn our Bibles, burn our flags etc and nothing happens.
A small group says they will burn Korans and this Govt and some pansies say no no no don’t upset muslims
Well I for one am fed up of bowing to muslims while they look to overthrow the west with it’s backward cave dwelling ideology.
Even on here we have some saying no don’t do that it will upset muslims.
Er they’re frigging killing us and each other and this is a war.
They are not qurans, so the sheep don’t really care.
Now if it was qurana..... Well that is a horse of a different color.
I forgot about this, now is an excellent time for this to resurface.
No, it’s not amazing — it’s American.
I don’t remember General Petreus opening his yap for that. No, it is only because we might offend our muzzy “friends” that we are concerned about book burning. What a sick bunch of Generals we have.
Source? Or just more bullshit?
General Petraeus just lost whatever moral high ground he thought he held. Disgusting.
The media and FOX for sure have gone way over the top and being so one sided it is pathetic.
They are already in harms way what don’t you get about war?
Obama tells the state dept and the embassy to get out and put this small group down.
Then he tells the general to say the troops will be put in harms way,
Has those in the media and some of the high brass lost their heads?
This is a war they are already in harms way and now reports come ion of two dead soldiers in Iraq yesterday which is not related but other muslims are being killed by muslims and they don’t protest that either
It was reported at the time. I remember reading about it but you won’t hear it from the msm - ever. We know whose side they are on and it ain’t America’s.
Book burning PING.
Only this didn’t make the nightly news.
The military, the heavily armed branch of the government, carries out the government’s wishes and policy. The official policy of our government, dating back before Obama, was to bow down and submit before the practitioners of neck slicing and head chopping. It hasn’t changed, just gotten worse.
Can one have confidence in one’s government when it protects the violent handbook of the death cult and destroys the Christian/Jewish Bible?
he’ll be running for office for sure
One breath he will say we are over there fighting to give them freedom and keep our freedom and then say no don’t burn a koran but Bibles have been burned or removed because muslims are upset
I’m really pissed off with hos muslims are always playing the victim and we as a country and the west bow down to them all the time.
In the mean time they are taking over parts of the west introducing their sharia laws and some dopes still do not get it and that goes for this pathetic media for sure too.
blood on this pastors hands , er you do understand that they have been killing non muslims for decades right and we are already in a war.
Hell when will some get it that we are already in a war and our troops including my old pals I served with are over there risking their lives every frigging day.
To say this pastor will have blood on his hands is just plain wrong.
Just click on the links provided for source. Or google it.
Saudi Arabia - Conversion by a Muslim to another religion is punishable by death. Bibles are illegal. Churches are illegal. Easter celebrations are illegal. It is punishable by death for a non-mulsim to enter the “holy” muslim cities of Medina and Mecca.
