To Burn or Not to Burn: That is the Question

Last week we were treated to yet another lecture by our Lecturer-in-Chief, Barack Hussein Obama. This time he was animated by the scheduled burning of the Koran by an insignificant pastor in Florida. No allusions to the First Amendment were made such as he gave when he endorsed the construction of the Cordoba Mosque in New York. Nevertheless, he prevailed upon Pastor Jones to reconsider his decision. It would be encouraging to many of us if he applied the same standards to those who are determined to build the Cordoba Mosque but impregnable logic, let alone consistency, are always absent whenever Obama panders to his Muslim pets which is something he never seems to tire of doing. Even someone as sober as General Petraeus chimed in with: ” Were the actual burning to take place, the safety of our soldiers and civilians would be put in jeopardy and accomplishment of our mission made more difficult.”

Neither the president nor the general explained what put us all in jeopardy prior to 9/11. This, of course, would be the constant call for jihad laced throughout the Muslim title deed, the Koran itself. So far, Muslims have not required any book burnings or cartoons to set them off on a violent rampage flying aircraft into our buildings, bombing our embassies, and murdering Dutch film makers. Compromising our First Amendment rights in order to avoid Muslim violence and retribution should not be contemplated for an instant. They will attack us at any time and use any excuse as they demonstrate their devotion and obedience to their doctrinal instructions. Let that be understood especiallly by those who are charged with safeguarding our national security and winning our wars.

No violence was demonstrated towards Muslims living in America after 9/11 when it might well have been expected nor were the flags of Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia, Iran, Syria, or most of the Arab/Muslim countries that constantly vote against us in the United Nations, burned nor were their mosques desecrated, their embassies attacked, or their people killed. These are the prerogatives reserved for the “religion of peace” whenever it perceives a real or imagined insult. The rest of us are expected to indulge their hair-trigger sensitivity and accomodate demands for special consideration, not applicable to non-Muslim citizens, at the expense of our freedoms and our safety.

Burning the Koran does not accomplish anything and, no doubt, in the minds of some leftists it could even contribute to global warming! It might even upset the 65 or so Muslims who mean us no harm. So, let’s have the decency not to burn the Koran but let’s also have the decency not to burn the American flag either.
