Pictured above are a "handful" of Muslims in Pakistan calling for the murder of a Danish cartoonist who drew a cartoon containing Mohammed's picture. That is punishable by death in IslamoCrazyTown. Westegard was the one who drew the cartoon with the picture of Mohammed with a bomb in his turban. In response, IslamoCrazyTown thugs went on a rampage of violence (thus reinforcing Westegard's point).
We have learned that FBI officials visited the wannabe Koran-burner, Pastor Terry Jones of the Dove World Outreach Center. The FBI warned Jones, according to NPR:
According to officials familiar with the situation, the FBI visited Pastor Terry Jones several times. There is no law against what he wanted to do, they told him, but they were concerned about what might happen to HIM if he went ahead with his Koran Bonfire. They talked to him about being a potential target for violence and threats and told him the story of the Danish cartoonist and other people who have had their lives changed by making this kind of bold statement. They also told him they were concerned that civil rights violations and hate crimes might grow out of what he was planning to do and they wanted him to understand that.
As a result of the uproar over his planned Koran-burning, and possibly a realization of what he might be getting himself into by offending the murderous IslamoCrazyTown thugs, Pastor Jones has received a new message from God - don't burn the Koran, "not today, not ever," according to Jones.
Thank you, God, for turning down the heat on this issue. If it's not too much trouble, could you spare a minute to tell Imam Feisal Rauf to build his mosque somewhere other than Ground Zero ? That would turn down some more heat. That's my prayer. Amen.
What amazes about the Koran-burning episode is how many high-level people got involved. Hotair.com has a partial list:
...people who’ve weighed in thus far on Terry Jones’s publicity stunt turned mega-clusterfark: The U.S. Secretary of State, the top U.S. commander in Afghanistan, the presidents of Afghanistan and Indonesia, the prime minister of Iraq, the home minister of India, the Pakistani ambassador to the U.S., the FBI, Interpol, the Vatican — and now, inevitably, the president of the United States.
In one way or another, ALL the high-level people above reached the same conclusion - DON'T STIR UP THE RESIDENTS OF ISLAMOCRAZYTOWN. Bad things happen will happen if you do, doubly so if dirty infidels are the ones doing it. Ask Theo Van Gogh, the 9/11 victims, or Muslim women who can't go outside their homes without wearing head scarves and being escorted by a male in certain parts of IslamoCrazyTown. IslamoCrazyTown isn't big on human rights.
The IsalmoCrazyTown message of intimidation has been received again, just as it was received regarding the Danish cartoon. Most media outlets self-censored that cartoon of Mohammed, fearful of what the IslamoCrazyTown thugs might do if they didn't. We let that intimidation and fear trump our freedom of speech. Maybe it was wise, but it doesn't sit too well. I'm not in favor of Koran-burning, naturally, but I'm even less in favor of threats of violence and death. In the U.S., our rights require us to endure speech we don't like, even speech we find repulsive. I find a lot of political speech repulsive (like the phony 'Tea Party is racist' trash put out by the left), but I don't threaten to kill the people who engage in it. Instead, I defend their right to be despicable lying douchebags. I'm sure I just offended some people on the left by calling them despicable lying douchebags, but so what ? That's my right. Plus, they richly deserve it.
Because we seem to keep submitting to the intolerant IslamoCrazyTowners, I'm going to post a video that the politically correct, 'diversity and tolerance above all' types among us might call divisive. I think there are some important points being made in this video. It's from a British man named Pat Condell:
