GAINESVILLE - FBI agents visited today with a minister of a small Florida church that plans to burn the Quran on Sept. 11, as public safety became a paramount concern and President Barack Obama added his voice to the chorus of opposition. Elsewhere, hundreds of angry Afghans burned an American flag and chanted "Death to the Christians" to protest the planned burning of Islam's holiest text. Obama urged the Rev. Terry Jones to "listen to those better angels" and call off his plan.(continued)

When will Obama send his FBI thugs out to visit the Imam who wants to build a mosque at the 9-11 Site?
How many FBI agents visited Imam Rauf, eh?
... and if the police did that at a mosque...
I guess his mistake it that he never joined the Black Panthers.
They should come to my house, too, then. I’m drawing funny cartoons!
Well, Muzzies have been burning bibles nonstop and burning churches, crucifying Christians in Africa literally, and bombing Jews since the creation of Israel. I for one think that it’s better for the Muzzies that we are burning Korans instead of THEM.
After 9/11 and every terrorist attack since we are told that Islam is a religion of peace, a small percentage are radicals and we shouldnt judge a billion people by the actions of a few. Yet every free world leader and even folks like Hannity are crapping themselves over fears of Muslim reaction to a parish of less than 50 members, begging them not to do it. Where is the reciprocity? Why the chants of Death To America over the actions of a small group of people? How is it that entire nations go crazy over the actions of a few?
The hypocrisy is mind-boggling. It also makes that “Let Freedom Ring” theme song on Hannity’s show sound pretty hollow as he uses his program as a one-sided begathon for tolerance.
“So Reverend, nice church you got here. Ever been to Waco, Texas? Great town, Waco. Those your kids?”
Obama is a pant load, his angel is Wright the American hater.
Rarely do we see the defense of Christianity on the level of this effort to intimidate free speech.
Fox News is about 20% Saudi-owned, IIRC.
I’ve been watching to see how this would play out.
He should tell everyone that he is going to burn a US flag instead. And then cover a pile of Korans with it and some accelerants and burn away!
Burn, baby, burn!!!!!!!!!!
He is exactly proving their totalitarian violent stance against this country. They didn’t need an excuse or provocation. This provocation helps draw out and display what they’re really about.
Good for him. Let the matches be lit.
What’s sickening is the candy-assed response from our elected officials/government and many voices from pundits, religious leaders, the bureaucratic elite and even our military. They show fear and weakness to our enemy through their desire to squelch this man’s political speech in favor of the enemy.
Did they bring tanks?
What really is appalling is the great uproar from the leftist scum who has the audacity to defend burning the American flag and wanted every pic and detail of Abu Ghraib and are ok with leaks regarding national security. This needs to be just as much about THEM as this minister. The FBI visiting him was over the top, but what do you expect from these thugs who rule with hypocrisy.
Gee. Wonder what they found? Matches? A lighter?
Were they men in black?
LOL...today Hannity is decrying appeasement with regards to the Ground Zero Mosque.
Let’s all draw Mo-ham-ed and post it to Facebook, MySpace, blogs, etc.
Any chants of death to America in America? Hmmm? Hmmm?
That would be OK probably...We need to take our country back in Nov..
the FBI has no business in this case period.
Religious profiling and government intimidation.
It’s too bad this church doesn’t have some money. If they were well-funded like leftist groups and the muzzies are, they’d have been able to get an injunction against the cops by about 10am this morning.
Well, at least they did not shoot him...yet...
I’m lovin it.
Hannity’s muslim ladies are on fire!
I haven’t watched Hannity the last few days. Are you telling me that he’s openly siding with zero, etc., against this church burning the koran?
Educate people and take the country back.... never give up...
“The FBI spent about a half hour talking with Jones, but church spokesman Wayne Sapp would not disclose what they discussed. Agents leaving the church wouldn’t talk to an Associated Press reporter.
Jones said earlier this week that agents have visited him twice since he announced his plans in July, the last visit about two weeks ago.”
Does anyone know who was the first news organization or blog to give this story legs on a national scale? Does anyone else find it odd that this nobody preacher with 30 followers was suddenly thrust into the national spotlight right before the 911 anniversary and the November election?
Did the WH tip off the media to this story? Apparently the FBI knew about this book burning way back in July!! Something smells to high heaven with this whole thing.
Reality sucks. Sad to have to live through watching the downfall of the United States and 0bama and those traitorous btards that make up the criminal organization known as the Demonrat party will have their place in history as the culprits and are deserving of quite a reception when they take their last breaths from all those who sacrificed for this country.
nail on head.
they say a mosque being built near where 3000 died.
Cross in piss.
Crap on a painting of the virgin Mary.
are all 1st amendment rights.
Killing non muslims and we’re told to understand them and that they are small group.
but burning a koran is wrong and should not be happening.
I hope this pastor says I had no intention to burning it but wanted to make a point and show the hypocrisy of the white house, the far left and islam.
They muslims acted violently and then they say they’re a religion of peace.
As for Hannity I’ve had it with him, the man is a coward who cannot talk about social issues like the homosexual agenda, abortion etc, tells a soldier yesterday on the radio that we should not provoke them and that this will endanger our troops.
if Hannity had served and been in a war like the soldier he was talking to then he would know that we’re in a war and we’re already in danger.
The flag? I think not. He should make a show of wrapping the koran in bacon strips before he sets fire to it.
“Fox News is about 20% Saudi-owned, IIRC.”
I wish I had the post to reference, but no Fox isn’t owned by anymore than about 6% IIRC. I believe it slightly less than 6% actually, but no more than.
Eat Mo-Ham, Eat M0-Chicken and Eat Mo-Pork!
So, when is the PC General Petreaus, Secretary of State Clinton, and Obama going to condemn the Afghan muzzies for shouting “Death to Christians” and burning an American flag?
And what the hell is a cop doing gathering people’s names and license plate numbers at the Gainesville church?
And when is the FBI going to start visiting all these radical imams who are preaching hatred in the mosques?
I do not advocate “incitement” of this kind due to the very real dangers to the lives of Americans all over the world..... but the simple fact that there are such pervasive fears about the possible/likely effects of such an act shows what we are dealing with. Islam the “religion of peace” (sic) breeds vast numbers of followers who will slit our throats for any reason or no reason, for the mere “provocation” of some obscure nobody in Florida.
Do so-called “leaders” in Islam struggle to get their followers to stop burning US flags to prevent ordinary Americans from going on killing sprees against Muslims? I didn’t think so.
I'm not giving up, I'll continue to fight to the end...but I'm also a realist and I'm convinced the liberals have succeeded in destroying the nation. We are saddled with 2 parties, one evil the other stupid...the stupid party is too late to stop the evil party.
‘..we are told that Islam is a religion of peace, a small percentage are radicals and we shouldnt judge a billion people by the actions of a few....’
exactly. I hope the Minister does not go throught with this....2 wrongs don’t make a right. BUT, where are the leaders asking the Afghan people to stop the anti-American, anti-Christian protests because they shouldn’t judge all Americans or all Christians by the actions of a few?? Did I miss that....?? Has any member of the media asked this question? Why is the media covering this...?
IRS visits are probably not far behind.
That’s about the same number of “strongly approves” for Zero. It tells me that 80% of the country understands that he has a right to do this.
Hannity is a coward who will not talk about homosexuals video of folsom fair etc and their agenda, abortion or says we should not provoke muslims.
He sounds like a broken record with his stupid Clinton impression, his dead fish comments and talks about the same issues for weeks.
Then he has for his guest the miserable think he’s tough Beckel
Or maybe some New Black Panthers w/night sticks?
Certainly the aclu is representing thew Rev. Right?
“....they show fear and weakness to our enemies...”
The muslims respect strength....they laugh at and exploit weakness. Petreaus of all people should know that, but apparently not. The same goes for our other so-called leaders.
