"Imama, Didn't Mean to Make You Cry"
"If we move from the location, the story will be that the radicals have taken over the discourse...the headlines throughout the Muslim world will be that Islam is under attack...if we don't do this right, anger will explode in the Muslim world."
'>-Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, on Larry King Live last night.
We always hear that if we do this or that, we will ignite the Muslim world and spur terror attacks. These apologists take a very dangerous tone with these warnings...one that suggests that we bear responsibility for the end result.
The folks in Tennessee that plan on burning Korans on Saturday are crazy through and through, but to get the White House involved out of fear of reprisal is gutless.
Start blaming the people with the crazy ideology. Why should we tailor our behavior to make those who hate us, hate us a little bit less? They will find a reason to recruit and kill Americans for anything we do short of national conversion.
By no means am I justifying any violence or mass burnings of the Koran, but, as a society, we need to quit acting like a bunch of eunuchs.
