Well, Florida pastor Terry Jones has gone and done it. The evangelical minister, who threatened last September 11 to burn a copy of the Koran and then backed down in the face of public pressure, has made good on his incendiary promise. With 30 people present as witnesses, he set fire to a copy of the embattled religious text.
And, as happens in the event of real or imagined slights, the other shoe summarily dropped. No sooner had Jones fired up his Bic than an Islamic court in Pakistan found him guilty of the crime of desecrating the religions most holy book. The court then issued a fatwaloosely translated as death orderagainst him, as is their wont.
But here is where the story gets interesting. Pakistans Jamaat-ud-Dawah, a banned Islamic organization and suspected terrorist group, announced a bounty of 10 crore rupees for anyone who fulfills the fatwa on Jones. In case youre wondering, that amount is equivalent to around $2.2 millionnot exactly chicken feed. What ever happened to 72 virgins?
I became curious about whether this most supernal of religions actually sanctions killings for hire, so I did a little digging and found that indeed it does. One of the most famous examples of a fee-for-service fatwa involved Taslima Nasreen, an exiled Bangladeshi writer, who had been targeted for execution by Indian Muslim scholars. After Juma prayers at the Tipu Sultan mosque in Calcutta, Majidulla Khan Farhad announced unlimited financial reward to anybody who would kill the author.

The day after that minister goes, you muzzies had better guard your imams and houses of hate...er houses of worship.
Those wonderful muzzies don’t burn bibles...they just chop off Christian heads.
I’ll call him and stage his death, then donate the $2.2 million to a relief fund for military families.
Do you really trust a muslim group to pay the $2.2 million?
The response to this fatwa from the so-called “moderate” or “peaceful” moslems is....(crickets)
A “moderate” Muslim is merely one who doesn’t want to dirty his own hands.
this is America, we don’t deal tolerantly with religious fanatics who issue hit orders on people who burn books
Islamic Peace Group Places $2.2 Million Bounty on Head of Koran-burning Forida Pastor? (/snort)
“Do you really trust a muslim group to pay the $2.2 million?”
Yes I do. After all I’ll be getting paid by the Nigerian guy any day now. :)
They’ll use this to instill more hatred against America. IMO, its probably better to force their hand than allow the stealth methods they are currently using.
what about the other 50 people that have burned kOrans? Are they going to be “targeted” too? Nah, prolly not high profile enough to help institute sharia law here; and it might do damage to their cause if all 50 get Sharia’d.
Those mOslems are FOCUSED LIKE A LASER on being a religion of peace, I tell you!
The “Islamic group” is too chicken to do the deed itself.
This happens all the time with every religion. Just last night, I was watching a “Family Guy” episode and they were making fun of Jesus. Sure enough, some of the big megachurches in the Midwest have, coincidentially, just put a $2.2 million bounty for the death of Seth Green and the entire staff at Cartoon Network. Not to mention what the Israeli Knesset is willing to pay for the deaths of Woody Allen and Jackie Mason. Yeah, it’s just not Islam.
Whazza matta? Can't their allah do his own killing? Must he depend on the weak hand of man to “get back” at the infidel who just burned his own personal property?
Vengeance is mine, saith the LORD! I will Repay! Christians do not have to bloody their hands to protect GOD!
Dozens of koran burnings on youtube. Why the fuss over this one?
Hey Muzzies! Pound sand! All y’all.
Unlimited financial rewards over there means 4 goats, a dozen chickens, and a two-for-one coupon at the local noodle house.
Does anyone ever think how they can collect a bounty on a man's head in reality? Like they are really going to hand you a bag with that much cash in it!
More likely they will ask if a check is okay and then post-date it next Friday and hope you don't catch it...

God can take care of himself without some church claiming to put up a bounty. It will be on God’s timetable, now ours.
Their foot shall slip, in due time...
