Clerics threaten holy war over alleged Quran desecrations
CNN ^ | May 15, 2005 | Reuters

Posted on 05/15/2005 7:50:47 AM PDT by jmc1969

FAIZABAD, Afghanistan (Reuters) -- A group of Afghan Muslim clerics have threatened to call for a holy war against the United States in three days unless it hands over military interrogators reported to have desecrated the Quran.

The warning on Sunday came after 16 Afghans were killed and more than 100 hurt last week in the worst anti-U.S. protests across the country since U.S. forces invaded in 2001 to oust the Taliban for sheltering Osama bin Laden and his al Qaeda network.

The clerics in the northeastern province of Badakhshan said they wanted U.S. President George W. Bush to handle the matter honestly "and hand the culprits over to an Islamic country for punishment."

"If that does not happen within three days, we will launch a jihad against America," said a statement issued by about 300 clerics, referring to Muslim holy war, after meeting in the main mosque in the provincial capital, Faizabad.

Lets see Newsweek publishes a false story that finally gets the reaction from the arab street they have always wanted.

Think it is time to take spikey and his crew and let them move their HQ to Afghanistan, so they can get up close and personal with the up coming jihad.

Give em a message for me.

TEll em that I don't think the koran is good enough for toilet paper. I wouldn't want one evil page near even the waste of my body. It's too evil to be near me in any way shape or form.

This is one more proof, if any be needed, that "Muslim clerics" as a group are crazy as a sh*thouse rat. The truth behind the "desecration of the Koran" story seems to be that a MUSLIM prisoner stuffed the pages of HIS Koran in a toilet at Guantanamo to cause trouble.

Note that these sh*thouse rats (excuse me, Muslim clerics) did not make a peep of protest when Muslims (Sunnis) set off bombs in Muslim (Shiite) mosques, which presumably contained a copy or two of their holy Koran, in addition to assorted formerly live Muslims.

We have got to start shooting, rather than capturing, all who choose to take up any form of arms against us. Also, it is high time that we start having military trials of the foreigners we capture in Iraqi, most of them Saudis. Then we can tie them to posts and execute them with firing squads, just as we did to people in Germany AFTER WW II, when they continued their fighting because they didn't get the memo that the war was over and their side lost.

Did I miss anything?

It doesn't take much to stir them up. A rumor alone seems to do it. Its easy to manipulate the uneducated. How many bibles have they destroyed? Does that mean we should declare a Crusade? Now every prisoner we release from Gitmo can bring back false stories and stir them up even more.

Instead of flushing the Quran why not just stuff it in a pig's behind?

Then offer a public apology to the insulted pig!

I don't know why there is a problem with this.

Everybody knows that the pages of the koran are too hard to flush down the toilet.

Thats why I only allow it to be used in my hunting cabin outhouse open hole.

It decomposes well in there.

I would not recommend it for lining the cat box with, though, as Tabby tends to not want to defile her paws by stepping on the damn thing.

We were able to plug up some holes in the cabin walls with it. Just soak the pages in water, not enough to where they disintegrate, but just kinda overly damp, then jam it into the holes with a screwdriver or similiar.

Once it dries, it stays put and then you can hang a picture of Jesus over the area.

And for the appeasers and Moo-slim lovers out there, I meant every word of it.

There is only one bigger waste of trees in the entire world than newsweak and that is the koran.

The rantings of a murdering, thieving, lying paedophile written 200 years after he died because mohammed was too stupid to even read or write. Its a shame a tree is ever wasted on such worthless trash.

How about we give you Michael Isikoff and at least one other unnamed government source, and you can then extract confessions on damn near anything you want from them? The only condition is that you keep them when you are done.

Isn't this like yelling "fire" in a crowded theatre when there is really no fire?

You can't yell "fire" but you can light one to burn an American flag, that's free speech? Arson in public has become free speech and inciting a riot is no longer applicable to journalists?

Making things more difficult for our forces abroad has gotten a bit out of hand with the media. Time to invoke the Sedition Act?

"A group of Afghan Muslim clerics have threatened to call for a holy war against the United States in three days unless it hands over military interrogators reported to have desecrated the Quran."

And some thought hanging around in Afghanistan trying to help them build a modern state with conditions at least tolerable for a human being was a good idea.

At the end of the day the Afghan people are going to turn on us. It may not happen tomorrow, or next week, but it is going to happen. There is no such thing as "moderate" Islam. These people may have been war ravaged enough to tolerate us for awhile, but they will in short order heed the call of their radical religion which forbids friendship or cooperation with Christians and Jews. We are not going to be able to continue paying off their warlords forever. The very people we liberated from horrific conditions will soon thank us for it will bullets in the heads of our service people.

If we feel we must retain a footprint (occupation) in Afghanistan, we must be willing to take decisive action when this sort of nonsense comes up. If after 3 days these nuts declare holy war on the US, we should simply classify them as enemies to the coalition and arrest or kill all of them and any followers they may have. The way to successfully win and/or occupy nations is to make sure the populace knows that if they rise against you, they and all the things they care about will be annhilated. We apparently don't have the stomach for that sort of thing in this polically correct media age, and until we do we should avoid hanging around in these Islamic countries.
