Skip to comments.9/11 anniversary: Charged with hate
Posted on 09/11/2010 5:21:51 PM PDT by MinorityRepublican
When Andy Warhol predicted in 1968 that in the future everyone would be world-famous for 15 minutes, he could not have meant Pastor Terry Jones. The idea that the world's media has been hanging on every word uttered by a low-rent bigot with a gun who has been mulling over whether to burn 200 copies of the Qur'an today is grotesque. Hillary Clinton, David Petraeus, Robert Gates, the presidents of Afghanistan and Pakistan and lastly Barack Obama himself have all been sucked into the media maelstrom created by the pastor with a dodgy past and 30 congregrants. And the circus is not over yet. Jones plans to fly to New York to discuss the proposed location of the Islamic centre near Ground Zero with the New York imam Feisel Abdul Rauf.
Whether or not this meeting takes place and last night the pastor was still threatening to burn the Qur'ans if it did not the damage has already been done. A protester was shot dead after a crowd of 10,000 converged on a German-run Nato base in north-eastern Afghanistan. Thousands of Indonesian Muslims demonstrated outside the US embassy in Jarkarta. President Obama has said and done the right things, neither reacting too soon and thus inflating the importance of the pastor nor too late. But the vulnerability of America's image in Afghanistan and Pakistan, and the possibility that it would be recast by the lunatic fringe of Christian fundamentalists at home, is all too real. The pastor may be the most extreme version of it to date, but he is symptomatic of a larger trend, particularly in Florida. In May a mosque in Jacksonville was attacked with a pipe bomb, and a mosque south of Miami was attacked twice last year, once with gunfire.

Low rent: Perhaps
And all this is somehow our fault. Muzzies rioting and killing innocents. We are BAD!
No the Muslims don’t hate...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FjqQfRJoHbk&feature=related
Tell me, is it possible that the Guardian itself is exhibiting just a teensy bit of hate?
Well, I hate FUBO and his islamic brethren.
Words have meaning and the loons on the left take them and twist them into smithereens.
I can damn well hate Islam. I think it an evil religion. I hope some idiot from DU or Huffpo reads this and gets the vapors....’cause I hate them, too!
I wonder if I'll take his call.....
Well said. I agree.
A low rent bigot with a... ***shiver*** ... GUN?
First I heard that Jones was planning to SHOOT Korans.
Funny how a “low rent bigot” is making fools out of so many worldwide without lighting a match and proving how violent the religion of peace is.
Where is Cair getting the money for 200,000 copies of that crap,Maybe they printed up a VERY sanitized version as a diversion.
Filthy leftwing crap from a longtime leftwing rag.
Uh, jacksonville pipe bomb of Mosque ....very very possibly one of the mosque homies themselves...case has not yet been solved nor any suspects...
From now on the MSM theme on 9/11 will be the hatefulness of the West.
