Burn-A-Koran Day

“It is precisely the kind of action the Taliban uses and could cause significant problems not just here but everywhere in the world we are engaged with the Islamic community.” – General David Petraeus

“If they burn our holy Koran it means war between Muslims and non-Muslims…Afghanistan will not be the only country to react, but all Islamic countries all over the world will stand and fight against non-Islamic countries.” – Enayatullah Balegh, Ulema Council of Islamic Scholars, Afghanistan

“This is a recruitment bonanza for Al Qaeda.  This could increase the recruitment of individuals who’d be willing to blow themselves up in American cities, or European cities.” – Barack Obama

“Book burning is antithetical to American ideals. People have a constitutional right to burn a Koran if they want to, but doing so is insensitive and an unnecessary provocation – much like building a mosque at Ground Zero.” – Sarah Palin

“Where’s the money coming from for these extremists? Who’s funding these radical Christian clerics?” – Jon Stewart

“Our burning of the Koran is to call the attention that something is wrong.  It is possibly time for us in a new way to stand up and confront terrorism. … As of this time, we have no intention of canceling.” – Pastor Terry Jones

    We are in total agreement. It was irrational and it is abhorent to me that one would be so blind sided to believe that burning a Koran would have any positive consequences for anyone.
