Burning The Koran And The Ground Zero Mosque

President Obama went out of his way to beg Terry Jones not to burn Korans on September 11th. Why? Because apparently this will upset Radical Muslims, and it will upset moderate Muslims too. However, upsetting the majority of Americans with the building of the Muslim community center/Mosque overlooking Ground Zero is not that big a deal.

Now the Imam behind the Mosque is saying that not building the Mosque will cause Radical Islam to get stronger.

I look at it like this, if Radical Islamists get this emotional over either of these issues, then going ahead with the Mosque and not going ahead with the Koran burnings will be looked at as a victory by these scourges of humanity.

A victory is the best tool of recruitment. It means it could be looked at a cool thing to continue threatening and carrying out terrorist acts.

I don't think there is a way to win here. No matter what happens, it turns out to be a tool for Radical Islam to get stronger. The only answer is to fight the scourge and defeat the scourge.

As for burning the Koran, or any religious book for that matter, I have no problem with it. Whether it is for fun or to prove a point. They are fictional books, and I'm convinced that without religious garbage the world would be a much nicer place.

The reality is that the same laws of the land that enable the Mosque to be built legally are in place to burn the Korans legally. I think anyone is for one and not the other is a hypocrite. If it is legal it is legal. End of story.
