This is insane. They are offended? They flew planes in to 2 buildings in NY and more. They continue to perform terrorist activities. And THEY are offended? That’s RICH.
Obama should have no opinion. This is irresponsible of him. This statement by this fool is bad. A DERELICTION OF DUTY and a Seditious ACT. He is the President. His WORDS are ACTIONABLE. His WORDS are SEDITIOUS.
The lefties burn the Bible and the Flag, why should the KORAN be protected?
If this government protects the KORAN, they will be ESTABLISHING special protections for ISLAM. This government, after doing that, will have, in TRUTH established the CALIPH
The president chiming in on this, due to his OFFICE, is establishing a possible protectionist stance for ISLAM. If this is the case, then HE is creating the division. HE is the MULLAH of America. HE will be the American IMAM
The CORE of the Koran is Conquest and submission and DEATH. The core to all other major religions is LIFE and the betterment of it. The Q’RAN is EVIL. To support EVIL is EVIL.
It’s a false argument to say that we should not burn the Q’RAN, because it will cause death. We have a WAR going on people. Don’t you think that they will pull the trigger if they get a chance anyway? The enemy is not laying their weapons down. The appeasement makes them stronger. The Muslim will kick you when you are down, he will not relent. There is no civility. The Q’RAN allows for plunder of the enemy. They are not CIVIL. The Geneva accord is NOT something that they follow.
The soldiers are in DANGER now, what makes one think that the enemy is NOT serious NOW? What kind of ill logic is this? Burning or not burning a book, will not make the soldiers less safe. Americans need to understand that these people WANT YOU ANNIHILATED. They’ll keep you around as slaves. That’s IT.
This is the same as the Cartoonist crap, who, by the way, Angela Merkel was to honor with a free speech award.
These arguments are false. Why is OBAMA fighting FOR the Muslims, while Europe is beginning to wake up to the threat that they have welcomed.
Follow the truth.

(CNN) — President Barack Obama on Thursday said a Florida church’s plans to burn dozens of Qurans this weekend would be a “recruitment bonanza” for al Qaeda.
“You could have serious violence in places like Pakistan or Afghanistan,” Obama told ABC’s “Good Morning America.”
“This could increase the recruitment of individuals who’d be willing to blow themselves up in American cities or European cities.”
Obama said he hoped the pastor, Terry Jones, understands that the planned burning is a “destructive act” that may have a dangerous fallout.
“I just want him to understand that this stunt that he is talking about pulling could greatly endanger our young men and women in uniform who are in Iraq, who are in Afghanistan. We’re already seeing protests against Americans just by the mere threat of it,” Obama said.
His comments came amid increasing international condemnation of the planned event on September 11 with the Presidents of Indonesia and Pakistan voicing their disapproval.
Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono wrote a letter to President Barack Obama urging him to stop a Florida church that said it will burn copies of the Quran.
Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari expressed grave concern over the threats to burn copies of the Quran.
Terry Jones, the head of a small church in Gainesville, Florida, says he will go ahead with plans to burn Qurans on Saturday, to mark the anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attacks.
In his letter to Obama, President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono urged him “to ensure that this hideous act is not carried out,” said Teuku Faizasyah, a presidential spokesman.
“It’s a very dangerous situation and we are very concerned,” Faizasyah said.
Indonesia, which has a population of 230 million and is the world’s most populous Muslim state, is worried that burning the Muslim holy book would incite hardline Muslims in Indonesia and around the world, Faizasyah said.
Similar concerns are being echoed in Pakistan where there has been growing anger at the planned burning.
Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari said anyone who thought of such a despicable act must be suffering from a diseased mind and a sickly soul, said spokesman Farhatullah Babar.
Zardari said it will inflame sentiments among Muslims throughout the world and cause irreparable damage to interfaith harmony and world peace.
Also on Thursday Pakistan’s Interior Minister Rehman Malik called on Interpol, the international police organization, to stop the church from carrying out its plan to burn the Quran.
Meanwhile hardline Indonesian Muslims are threatening retaliation. The Islamic Defenders Front, told CNN it will protest the planned burning and will issue a death sentence on Terry Jones, if he carries out his plan.
There is also increasing opposition to the planned event in the U.S. amid increased warnings that doing so could endanger U.S. troops and Americans worldwide.
U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton condemned the planned burning.
Speaking Tuesday at an iftar meal in Washington to celebrate the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, Clinton said: “I am heartened by the clear, unequivocal condemnation of this disrespectful, disgraceful act that has come from American religious leaders of all faiths … as well as secular U.S. leaders and opinion makers.”
Earlier this week, the top U.S. military commander in Afghanistan, Gen. David Petraeus, warned that the plan “could cause significant problems” for American troops overseas.
In response Jones said: “We are burning the book, we are not killing someone. We are not murdering people.”
