Terry Jones threatens Koran burning if Iranian pastor is executed
Christian Today ^ | 2/27/2012 | staff

Posted on 02/27/2012 3:40:54 AM PST by tobyhill

The organisation of firebrand pastor Dr Terry Jones has said it will burn Korans and images of the Prophet Muhammad if an Iranian pastor is executed for his faith.

Stand Up America Now made the threat after it emerged last week that the Iranian courts may have upheld the execution order for Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani.

The pastor has been in prison since October 2009. He was originally detained for protesting but the charge was later changed to apostasy.

Dr Jones sparked an international panic in 2010 when he threatened to burn Korans on the anniversary of 9/11.

After sparking riots in parts of the Middle East and Asia, the pastor came under intense pressure from political and religious leaders, and agreed not to go ahead with the stunt.

No sooner was he out of the headlines when his small Florida church burned a Koran in March last year after putting the holy book on trial and finding it guilty of crimes against humanity.

It is a strange world where we burn a book and they riot.

They murder a man because he denies their religion of hate and we do nothing.

Is murder worse than burning a book? I would say it is.
Now execution for various acts of murder and rape by a criminal are not a problem for me.
But to execute a person, an execution by a government for being a Christian? Isn’t that a bit too much?

Pray for Nadarkhani every day that if he’s still alive he may have the strength to defy his captors.

Someone should organize a “burn a Koran” day, and everyone can video their event, and post on youtube. Also, email links of your video to every middle east news outlet. Or better yet, each individual can come up with their own special way of desecrating that evil manuscript. Be creative in your effort.

Eventually, we’re going to have to face the truth. Islam wants us all to convert or die. They don’t care which. We are going to have to fight another world war, this time against Islam. It won’t be pretty.

A CAPITAL idea! Bravo to you ZX12R, I think I'll put a toilet bowl sized picture of Mo and the Koran in MY toilet, then drop a major dump on it, and post 'before' and 'after' pictures, and a YouTube video of the whole mess swirling on down the bowl, how 'bout that? I might create a brand new political movement, SOI (Sh*t On Islam)!!

LOL! Now that's the kind of creative desecration I was talking about. If Koranimals go this bonkers from simply the burning of their putrid holy book, we should be able to make their heads explode like the aliens in "Mars Attacks" when they hear Slim Whitman.

Every koran, mosque and imam in Afghanistan should have been burned on day one. All the children should have been put in American schools and taught English and the Bible for the last 10 years.

In 50 years, we could leave Afghanistan an Anglophone bulwark.

pastor Dr Terry Jones has said it will burn Korans and images of the Prophet Muhammad
Silly question that's been bugging me. To wit:
When some infidel burns or desecrates an 'Image' of Muhammad the Muslims go on a rampage or issue death warrants (Fatwas). BUT no real 'image' of Muhammad exists so nobody knows what he looked like.

Ergo, how can they know who is being desecrated by the infidel in said image?

That 'Turban Bomb' cartoon was what got me scratching my head over this. For all anyone really knows Muhammad could have had blond or brown hair, blue eyes, and no beard.

(oops, now I'm in trouble, oh well. such is life. Lock & load time I guess)

I think all Western nations should hold an international “Burn a Koran Day” at least once a year, or maybe once a month.

After sparking riots in parts of the Middle East and Asia, the pastor came under intense pressure an unprecedented, systematic, and illegal campaign of harassment from political and religious leaders, and agreed not to go ahead with the stunt.

Fixed it.

In the spirit of “Turn about is fair play”, I suggest a modification of your line: “I think all Western nations should hold an international “Burn a Koran Day” at least once a year, or maybe once a month.”

Given the frequency of Muslims burning Christian churches, IMHO the world should adopt the following: “I think all Western nations should hold an international “Burn a Mosque Day” at least once a year, or maybe once a month.

A madrassa may be substituted for a mosque.

Well, Pastor Jones, I whack a Koran about once a month. If I knew how to do the video to internet routine, I would share with all. If there any muzzie buggers that want to protest me, I will let them hold the next Koran while i whack it.

This time the pastor has the right idea,
use this to correct their actions.

Make them react the way we want.

If not, burn all the copies.

I’m over it.

I wouldn't spend the money to buy a koran. Is there an organization that gives them away? Sort of a mooselimb version of the Gideons?

I have some really creative ideas and would post pics at F.R.

I think it would be better if they offered a home for the Iranian pastor, and said they would burn a koran each day until he was released to them. A daily video with the intro “We will continue every day until he is released unharmed. If he is killed or harmed we will burn a koran each day until the end of time”.

Every form of Islam (Sunni, Shiit, etc.) demands death for “apostasy.” “Apostasy” is ceasing to believe in any of Islam’s teachings (even and especially for those born Muslim). You are automatically considered Muslim if your father was a Muslim (hence, the widespread belief that Pres. O is a Muslim...in the Muslim world). Therefore, in Islam, “you can checkout any time you like, but you can NEVER leave.”

The death penalty is also reserved for those who “insult the Prophet.” Of course saying “the Prophet” is wrong in not acknowledging Jesus is Lord is “insulting” hence, just being a Christian at all (even if you and your family never were Muslims) and saying so in public....can (and often does) bring the death penalty.

Following Sharia law (which inludes the penalties above) is required of all Muslims. Not following it is “apostasy” (see first paragraph above.).

Obama has been practicing Tequia from day one.

He has fooled many Americans with it.

Many of us on to him.

An “International panic?” I don’t remember that. And as far as I’m concerned the guy should be able to burn a koran if hippies can burn the flag.
