Jones, of course, killed no one. Suicide bombers kill as many people as they can for Allah. But Joe Klein is by no means alone in assuming that Muslims cannot control themselves and respond to insult with anything but threats and murder, and thus cannot be held responsible for their own actions. He thus reveals again the multicultural Left's bigotry and ethnocentrism. "Joe Klein Reserves Spot in Hell for Koran-burning Pastor Who's As 'Murderous' As 'Suicide Bombers,'" by Ken Shepherd for NewsBusters, April 4 (thanks to James):
Burning a copy of the Koran is morally equivalent to flying a plane into the World Trade Center and equally eternally damnable.
That's essentially the fatwa of Time magazine's Joe Klein in an April 1 blog post at the magazine's Swampland blog.
Klein was condemning Florida pastor Terry Jones's "trial" and subsequent burning of a Koran which allegedly have sparked a murderous rampage against UN workers in Afghanistan last week:
[T]here should be no confusion about this: Jones's act was murderous as any suicide bomber's. If there is a hell, he's just guaranteed himself an afterlifetime membership.
And yet the placement of a crucifix in urine is not.
How quick these people are to appease the muslims. I’m sure they’ll welcome their muslim overlords gladly while throwing we Christians to the lions.
Or burning of the American flag.
Only if Allah is the one true god.
And he's not.
He's just a worthless old moon god; Satan masquerading as God. A trick designed to fool weak-minded fools like Klein.
...I always love it when journalists begin lecturing us on the evils of free press and free speech....
Or the U.S. military burning THOUSANDS of Bibles.
Obama was AGAINST the flag burning Constitutional amendment. Why do I get the feeling Zero would support the same thing banning the Koran? Or, more likely, there’ll be some UN global ‘hate crime’ (thought crime) law to impose on our Constitutional rights. Remember, UN trumps US law, according to the Usurper.
Who knows? Could have been an April Fool's joke.
I guess Joe’s syphilis is flaring up again
If Joe wants to use that metric, then conservatives should have a field day using it on the hate speech of the left.
But leftists are not known for caring about being consistent.
As eloquently applied to linseywoolsey, YOU JACKASS.
Unless Little Joey isn’t right in the head to begin with, it sounds like he might need to lay off the recreational drugs for a while.
Apparently the line between "act was murderous as any suicide bomber's" and "art" is a very fine one.
If the news and the leftist had kept their mouths shut there wouldn’t be any ruckus.
The koran is an evil book - read it. Disgusting.
It is our patriotic and christian duty to defeat islam and its evil.
Did you guys and gals see where the woman somewhere in America (recently) burned a Koran and used raw bacon strips for bookmarks? Boy did I laugh when I heard that!
I hate New York Nazis.
The great irony here is that Joe Klein would be beheaded on sight by his beloved Muslims in Pakistan or Afghanistan just for being a Jew like Dan Pearl.
Seriously, these moronic liberal journalists live in a fantasy land.
They think everybody in the world thinks like a brain dead liberal.
And these moronic Jewish liberal journalists would sign their own death warrants if it was politically correct.
