INTERPOL: Quran Burning Would Increase Global Terror Threat (2)



But it’s not just the Koran burners.
It’s the Dutch cartoon.
It’s the repeated Papal verbal faux pas.
It’s the soldiers shooting holes in a Koran with rifles that have Christian references inscribed on them.
It’s resistance to Mosque-building from Switzerland to California.
It’s resistance to Burqas and head coverings.
It’s Abu Ghraib.
It’s Guantanamo Bay.
It’s rendition flights.

How many westerners blame all Muslims for the actions of a small group of fanatics?
How many Muslims have died in a war they never sought?

This isn’t a small group of fanatics burning “their own property”, these are Christian religious fanatics burning Islamic Scripture in a deliberate act of pure malice. It is little short of declaring a Holy War. The average Muslim knows this will provoke a resurgence of violence from the violent minority in their own religion. Some will take offense at the burning, and some will be pissed off by the consequences of the burning.

There is nothing more dangerous than a religious fanatic – which religion is irrelevant. You do not have to believe in a religion, but you do need to respect the power religion has over some or you might as well live your life wandering through a minefield – figuratively speaking.

And yes, there have been years of anti-west propaganda, in their schools as well as their media.
In 2005, The Organization of the Islamic Conference tried to start an effort to unbias the schools. I do not know how successful it was.
