Skip to comments.Robert Spencer: Will Obama Behead the Qur’an-Burners?
Posted on 02/29/2012 7:57:40 AM PST by combat_boots
Robert Spencer works out the logical questions arising from Obama's enforcement of Sharia law regarding the treatment of the quran in Afghanistan:
Madness has overtaken Washington, and the world. Every day this past week has brought fresh reports of more people murdered in Afghanistan over the burning of some copies of the Quran at Bagram Airfield. In response, every day new apologies come from American officials. Barack Obama, Leon Panetta, the commander of NATO troops in Afghanistan, General John Allen, and others have all issued abject apologies to Afghan President Hamid Karzai, the noble people of Afghanistan, and everyone else in sight.
Even the most minor of officials are getting into the act: Peter Lavoy, acting assistant secretary of defense for Asia and Pacific security affairs, scraping the bottom of the barrel for a suitable object for his abject submission, apologized to Muslims in the Washington, D.C. area.
Some have rightly skewered Obama and his cohorts for their cowardice and eagerness to appease the Afghan mobs, especially as the death toll steadily mounts. No one, however, has noted the most remarkable aspect of this entire episode: the United States Government has, no questions asked, eagerly embraced Islamic law (Sharia) regarding the treatment of the Quran, and assured the Afghans that it will be enforced.
In his apology letter to Karzai, Obama said that the Quran-burning was inadvertent, but that nevertheless we will take the appropriate steps to avoid any recurrence, including holding accountable those responsible.

I to am sorry. Sorry they didn’t burn more.
maybe insurance for elective lifestyle choices, the obese, smoking, stds, pregnancy, preventative care etc. should all cost more.
there should be insurance for very healthy people that don’t want into these higher price pools.
the obese should pay by the pound. why should everyone else pay for them? It’s their choice to be fat. insurance should be sky high.
People that want 10 kids should also pay through the roof, the same way people that are bad driving records pay much much more.
smokers and people that do drugs should pay triple what everyone else pays. Drinkers as well.
People that want implant birth control or sterilization should actually get huge discount insurance rates because they are saving the insurance company. Their lifestyle choice saves the insurace pool millions! The insurance companies WANT to give this stuff away for free. customers should not be denied.
For Quran burners?
sorry posted in wrong thread!
Actually, that was pretty funny, in a Lloyds of London way.
