What a great idea.
Florida pastor Terry Jones plans for "International Burn a Quran Day" was such a great idea for many people to acquiescing in doing so on 9/11, just to appease their minds.
However, according to Gen. David Petraeus, the U.S. Military Commander in charge of the Afghan war, it would put the troops in harms way more than necessary. "It could endanger troops and it could endanger the overall effort.", he said.
What happened on that September day should never be forgotten, as members of the Muslim sect committed a crime of immense proportion, not only against the U.S., but also against humanity itself. It was deemed as a tragic attack on the civilized world; as it would affect national and International economies alike in divers ways; the result of which has caused many financial woes, directly or indirectly, and continued to do so around the world.
It could be said that it was not all Muslims that were responsible for an act that would cause enormous physical havoc, and take so many lives of ordinary Americans. They were members of families who were there just to earn a living for their loved ones, or visiting the city; and to be murdered in such a way was unforgiving; and strangest thing of all was that there has been no apology of any kind coming from any person or group connected to the Muslim religion for what happened on that dreadful day. That was appalling, to say the least.
However, as events in history tend to repeat themselves; it would be the Quran now, and then the Bible would follow, and then the good books of other religions would also suffer the same dire consequence; and there would no end to it all. The whole world would find itself in a precarious position, and be forced to witness disastrous situations, which would make criminals of even people with good intentions.
Pastor Jone's idea would be considered as being lofty in some circles; but on the other hand, it would not be acceptable in others, and thus creating confusion and grave misunderstanding throughout the world. It would therefore be a good thing for most Americans to pay attention to what Gen. David Petraeus had said.
Pastor Terry Jones, be of good cheer.
