Pastor Terry Jones’ backing down solves an immediate problem, but the mammoth global reaction over his Quran burning plan has hurled into the public sphere, a ‘new’ frontier in the war on terror:  the Psychological factor.

The blogosphere went crazy with:  Terry Jones is a nut; he is on the fringes of Christianity; he represents the same evils of radicalism that we are fighting against; he’s an embarrassment to the West; he’s barbaric, provoking the terrorists, displaying bigotry, endangering lives on the front lines in Afghanistan, and that of innocent citizens of the West traveling overseas.  Albeit, mostly inarguable,  a larger issue has been driven underground in the brouhaha.

The outcry over this Quran burning paves the way for radicals to divide and conquer. Since when is every citizen in America, Canada and the West perfect an icon of civility?  People murder and rape children for crying out loud.  Is burning a Quran worse than this?  For radicals, it is.  It is critical to remember and revere that we in the West are collectively civil. No small group of isolated individuals can detract from the greatness of our constitution.  We do not endorse government policy that would stone a woman (or sentence her to lashes) for allegedly committing adultery.  We do not throw acid in women’s faces who pursue an education, nor force our women to hide their entire bodies in shame under wads of cloth even in scorching heat because she might tempt a man.  And, we even try to refrain from discussing certain embarrassments like Afghanistan’s dirty little secret.

This small Floridian church with it’s obnoxious Pastor has raised global upheaval (the airwaves were buzzing all day over it in Canada too) and an appeal from Obama who said:

the Quran-burning would be a “recruitment bonanza for al-Qaida. … This could increase the recruitment of individuals who’d be willing to blow themselves up in American cities, or European cities.”

In Afghanistan, hundreds of angry Afghans burned an American flag and chanted “Death to the Christians” to protest the planned Quran burning.  Associated Press
