“It is the duty of Muslims to react,” said Mohammad Mukhtar, a cleric and candidate for the Afghan parliament in the Sept. 18 election. “When their holy book Quran gets burned in public, then there is nothing left. If this happens, I think the first and most important reaction will be that wherever Americans are seen, they will be killed. No matter where they will be in the world they will be killed.”
Yesterday, I posted about the Koran burning in Florida, and the resulting rage from Muslims. I also pointed out the hypocritical response of many in the media and our government.
Today, the message is becoming clear. We now have Muslims chanting death threats to Obama. Of course, I’m not a political fan of Obama, but death threats to a US President? I understand the symbolism of burning the Muslim holy book; however, it’s one little preacher with a congregation of 50. It’s not the US military burning the books. It’s not the US government ordering the burning. I’d even guess that the vast majority of US citizens oppose the actions.
Death threats and violence though? Killing all Americans?
What Jones has done is put a magnifying glass squarely on the extremism in the Muslim world – and it’s not just a small percentage.
