Skip to comments.Pastor Terry Jones inspires fear, sadness among local Muslims
Posted on 04/06/2011 6:29:24 AM PDT by inflorida
For Imam Muhammad Musri, watching the mobs in Afghanistan incited to violence last Friday by the burning of a Quran by Gainesville Pastor Terry Jones was like a nightmare come true. He feared it, he foresaw it, he felt helpless to prevent it.
This is what Musri thought he had prevented last fall when he persuaded Jones to drop his plans to burn the holy book of Islam on the anniversary of 9/11. Instead, it was just a delayed reaction when angered Afghans overran U.N. offices and killed seven civilians.
"Muslims are outraged, but there is nothing we can do. We fully understand who Terry Jones is. This guy is a nut job," said Musri, president of the Islamic Society of Central Florida.
Orlando's Muslim community felt sadness, helplessness and fear while watching from afar as extremists on both sides, Christian and Islam, put their worst behavior on display to confirm their worst opinions of each other. While Central Florida Muslims felt the Afghan mobs no more represented Islam than Jones represented Christianity, they worried about becoming victims of retaliation by Christian extremists.
"There was a great deal of fear that it might cause a backlash here. There is too much hatred in the air," Musri said.

What a coincidence... local Muslims inspire fear, sadness in true Americans.
“Muslims are outraged but there is nothing we can do”
Except kill innocents, or make excuses for the throwbacks who are doing so
“We fully understand who Terry Jones is. This guy is a nut job”
And the murderous Muslims are not?
Does this mean you're leaving, never to come back?
When they say “nothing we can do”, they mean that they don’t know of a way to kill Mr. Jones yet.
El Toro Pooh-Pooh!
Its a real shame we don’t have Patton or MacArthur running the show in Afghanistan. They wouldn’t tolerate this kind of nonsense.
Burning the Koran and Killing 7 people are equal? I don’t think so. While I don’t see any sense in burning the Koran, it no where compares to the reaction of the Muslims.
No-It means they are building a SCUD missile in their basement.
What a shame.
Muslims feeling fear.
Complain about your fear and horror to Christians caught behind the satanic walls of any muslim craphole.
muslims don’t like certain aspects of the American experience? Leave! NOW!
If you’re scared, leave. Book a flight today on a nice, convertible jet.
They have no more to worry about than before it was burned. We do not behave the way they do.
Terry Jones may or may not be a nut job, I don't know him, but burning a book does not make him into anything.
The Muslims need to deal with their own and tell them to grow a thicker skin.
If Terry Jones is inspiring fear and sadness in the Arab population, then he should be hailed as a true American patriot. We shouldn’t go along with the liberal media and Hussein Osama’s coalition of cronies in denigrating him, but should instead recognize him as a force to scare off potential and actual terrorists living in America. It’s a shame that Jones has to do the work the government should be doing in dealing with Islam.
Jones has the ability to make a huge statement on political correctness and the double standard that allows acceptance of anti-Christian works in the US.
He should submerge a Koran in urine and call it “Piss-Koran”. He should then ask for $15,000 for the work from the taxpayer-funded National Endowment for the Arts. If he is refused and attacked for his “bigotry”, he should ask why the work “Piss Christ” got just such a deal from tax payers.
Does any one really thing that if some “Christian” goes on a rampage, because the local museum is showing “Piss Christ”, that they will blame the “artist”?
I like the part about Jones inspiring fear...perhaps it will be contagious.
Welcome to the generation of illiterate and ill-informed grads.
If Obama (and his wrecking crew) gets his way there will be no America.
Free speech being limited to promote Islam and leave its growth unabated?
Most people do not recognize that what happens in a mosque is sedition. Pure and simple. Islam is not just a religion, it is a cult. Larger than that though, it is a political system, it is its own government, a economic system (which includes funding new mosque construction), its judicial all wrapped up in the word sharia. This is inclusive of its military (jihadis) all rolled into one with one intent and that is to rule wherever they take root. It is an invasive, systemic infection looking to take over the host once it has quantum.
This is not a religion, but something that cloaks itself in those terms so it should not be given the same treatment contemplated under the first amendment. The Korans Sharia rules are to consume whatever government there is wherever it goes. Islam is political, and its goal is to supplant and replace. Globally.
Supplant and replace? That is a direct threat to the American constitution.
Innocent religion? ~~~ NOT!
No idea who she is, but she gave her home address as she burned the Koran and basically said “come get me if you have a problem with this”.
I think Jones understands that there's a good chance that he may become a martyr, and welcomes it.
If it happens, American Muslim spokesmen are going to be called upon to denounce the murder (without qualifications). They won't be able to.
“Muslims are outraged, but there is nothing we can do. We fully understand who Terry Jones is. This guy is a nut job,” said Musri, president of the Islamic Society of Central Florida.
And WHAT would they say about U.S. government officials who burned Bibles?
What about crucifixes in urine and elephant dung on pictures of the Virgin Mary as an “Art Form”??
Why is it that MUSLIMS and the Koran and their stinking filthy paedophilic founder can’t be attacked but everyone else’s religion is fair game?
I would like to burn the koran - ONE PAGE AT AT TIME - to make it last longer.
As for Afghanistan, we should get the heck out of there as soon as possible. Not one more American should die or one more dollar should be spent on these vile savages unless we are bombing them or throwing tomahawk missiles at them.
Liberals have no problem letting people vilify any religion except Islam or allowing people to insult our flag or dead American soldiers and their familes, but burn a Koran - HORRORS - they want an amendment or law banning that.
Americans should be OUTRAGED at this punk Imam, Islam, the Koran and our pandering politicians - like Lindsey Graham and the rest of them.
Jones is a media whore without a congregation. If he disappeared tomorrow then the Muslims in Afghanistan would just find another excuse to justify cutting people’s heads off. To say that this pathetic little moron caused the deaths is giving credit where no credit is due.
I watched her video yesterday ....brave woman and ready to die if need be for her country and religion...pray for her safety
But those murdering muzzies in Afghanistan, they are not nut jobs? Are they just run-of-the-mill animals? imam muusri the muzzie needs to look within his own religion for some answers....
I Scarcely Give a S....er....SmellyObama.

The Muslims rioting (again, hohum) should cause SHAME and angst among Muslims around the world.
According to him, the Koran is directly from God, while the Bible isnt. Mediaite offers a transcript:
GHOSH: The thing to keep in mind that`s very important here is that the Koran to Muslims, it is not it is not the same as the Bible to Christians.
The Bible is a book written by men. It is acknowledged by Christians that it is written by men. It`s the story of Jesus.
GHOSH: But the Koran, if you are a believer, if you`re a Muslim, the Koran is directly the word of God, not written by man. It is transcribed, is directly the word of God.
That makes it sacred in a way that it`s hard to understand if youre not Muslim. So the act of burning a Koran is much more potentially much, much more inflammatory than
The Bible actually IS the Word of God.
The Quran may have a few historical truths (and even some things that agree with the Bible from the Old Testement)in it, but it is not the Word of God.
The difference between Muslims and Christians is that the god of the Muslims is too small to defend itself. It cannot love like the true and living God of the Bible, it demands submission without love. Jesus fulfilled many prophesies from hundreds of years before He was born to show us that the real God is a loving God. No where in the New Testement does it tell us to kill in order to convert. (What the crusaders did is NOT a Christian act. What they did came from the pope, not the teachings of Christ).
If someone burns our Bible, we do not like it. Its disrespectful. It actually is much much worse than burning a Quran.
The difference is, our God and our people can handle it.
Jones needs to be ignored into obscurity. That said, he proved his point. Not that it needed to proved, as the Danish cartoons showed us the true face of Islam. Until Islam condems their violence around the world, nothing will ever change.
moderate Muslims may denounce the violence, but that’s as far as it goes.
* I like the part about Jones inspiring fear...perhaps it will be contagious.*
The peaceful Muslims should have no fear. The ones that mean to kill us should continually have tremendous bone-chilling fear and nightmares that never stop even during their waking hours. They should feel what all those persecuted by them in Muslim countries feel, times ten.
*Islam is not just a religion, it is a cult. *
I’d say it’s as much a system of government, or more so, as it is a religion
General Charles Napier is another great candidate for that job! ;-)
Well our idiot politicians and General Petraeus made that an impossibility.
7? try many hundreds. When there were more easy targets of westerners they went after their usual targets.
Lyle: Excuse me, Mr. Muslim, sir, but I sure do hate to see you like this. What if me and the boys was to shoot that preacher dead? Would that pep you up some?
Muslim: That might help.
We fully understand who Terry Jones is. This guy is a person who just exposed what muslimes are - maniacs,"
LOL. I watched that and loved the way she called Lindsey Graham a jackass on several occasions.
