FBI probes video of Qur’an desecration (Cow Droppings Alert?)
Islam Online ^ | 7/12/2006 12:00:00 PM GMT | some nutjob

Posted on 07/12/2006 12:59:00 PM PDT by Fighting Irish

The FBI will launch a probe into an Internet video that showed a man shooting a copy of the Qur’an with a military-style rifle and then leaving the bullet-riddled holy book outside a mosque in Chattanooga, Tennessee, an agent said, according to the Seattlepi.com.

The Washington-based Council on American-Islamic Relations asked the Justice Department to investigate the incident, FBI agent Tim Burke said.

The offensive video, titled “kill the Qur’an”, was posted on a social networking Web site last month, CAIR spokesman Ibrahim Hooper said, adding that it might have been filmed last year.

The video has been removed from the site last Tuesday, Hooper said.

The man who shot the video identified himself on the Web site as "mully88", and said that he lives in Chattanooga. In his profile, he listed his heroes as “anybody that has killed a Muslim, or at least tried to kill a Muslim”. His Web page also contains slurs against Hispanics and blacks.

The provocative video shows the man buying a copy of the holy Qur’an from a bookstore, taking it to a wooded area and shooting it, then throwing it outside the door of the Chattanooga Islamic center.

CAIR said the case could be treated as a possible civil rights violation, and Legal Director Arsalan Iftikhar compared it to burning a cross.

"By throwing the bullet-riddled Qur’an at the mosque, we believe the perpetrators went beyond the limits of free speech by taking part in an overt act of religious intimidation," Iftikhar said.

The Islamic civil rights group also demanded the FBI to investigate vandalism at an Indiana mosque, and treat the case as a possible hate crime. It also cited other recent incidents of vandalism against mosques in Maine, Arizona and Maryland.

Oh. No need to worry, I guess. The egalitarian nitwits at the FBI are obviously concerned that someone has "bad ideas" about The Religion of Bomb Making.

He should have stopped at this point.

then throwing it outside the door of the Chattanooga Islamic center.

He violated several laws at this point.

"Islam isn't in America to be equal to any other faith,

"

--Omar Ahmed, Chairman of the Board of CAIR (Council of American Islamic Relations), San Ramon Valley Herald, July 1998


Qur’an 8:12 “I shall terrorize the infidels.
So wound their bodies and incapacitate them
because they oppose Allah and His Apostle.”

Qur’an 8:57 “If you gain mastery over them in battle,
inflict such a defeat as would terrorize them,
so that they would learn a lesson and be warned.”

I actually think this is a good idea.

In order to protect mosques around the US, the feds should conduct extensive recon and surveillance of each and every one of them and visit often just to check to make sure everything is "safe."

CAIR said the case could be treated as a possible civil rights violation, and Legal Director Arsalan Iftikhar compared it to burning a cross.

How does it compare to flying hijacked airliners into office buildings full of innocent civilians in the name of Islam, Arse, er...Ars?

"By throwing the bullet-riddled Qur’an at the mosque, we believe the perpetrators went beyond the limits of free speech by taking part in an overt act of religious intimidation," Iftikhar said.

Work on the answers to my questions, Ars, and then I'll try to work up enough emotion to rate "apathetic" about your shot-up necronimicon.
In the meantime, go pound sand.

"He should have stopped at this point."

I agree. I took all three of my Dixie Chicks CD's to our annual gravel pit shoot-em-up and put some nice clean holes through them (they don't shatter like I thought). That was a gas, and we had a good laugh, but I would never dream of mailing them to the Chicks, which would probably be thought of to be a threat. You have to think of the consequences before you act. This guy didn't.

He could have posted the event including the shooting on a web site if it were his,
or a website of another if doing so didn't violate the sites TOS agreement.
By targeting the Mosque he screwed the pooch and will probably be charged.

*beyond the limits of free speech*? OH REALLY? Anything's allowed but desciration of the koran? Welcome to the United States of Islam?

The provocative video shows the man buying a copy of the holy Qur’an from a bookstore, taking it to a wooded area and shooting it, then throwing it outside the door of the Chattanooga Islamic center.

There should be more of this, not less.

I think that's where he made his error, now if he'd have gotten a grant from the NEA, well now that would be different thing all together.

I want to make sure I got this straight.

Jesus in a jar of urine=free speech

Virgin Mary painted with elephant dung=free speech

Shooting a Q'uran and throwing it on a mosque's front step=hate crime


Ok I think I got it.

I agree, I agree.

I desecrating just as fast as I can.

CAIR won't send me any more free korans (I got three out of the nitwits) and I ain't gonna pay that godawful price for one just to let my dog pp on it.

So if anybody has an extra one, send me a freepmail and I'll arrange to have it desecrated.

But I'm still desecrating.

Desecratin' over here, boss!

Still desecratin' here, boss!

This man's crime is obviously not "hate speech" or littering, it's "creative laziness".

Everyone knows that, to be a true work of artistic expression, he'd have to shoot the book, smear it with dung, and leave it soaking in a bucket of bladder juice outside the mosque.

Doesn't anyone take Art History in college anymore?

...Holding my pinky straight out off to the side of my beer

I'd have to disagree I think that stark nature of this piece says more about the artist's state of mind. Anything else would have been an overstatement. No I think he was going for a direct, and simple statement about his unresolved inner angst. The artist most likely had an overbearing father figure growing up who left him feeling stiffled and unable to express his feelings in a normal manner.

Apparently, desecrating any other religion besides Islam is just fine, along with burning our flag and shouting threats of beheading those who insult Islam.

The entire world comes to a screeching halt when there is even the possibility of someone touching a Qur'an improperly. Burn all the Bibles you want.
