They have been killing people in Afghanistan and calls for jihad are coming from all over the ME. All THIS after over 10 years of being in these countries? This should bring up a question:
Do MUSLIMS understand what Democracy is?
My contention is that they DO NOT!
Islam is INTOLERANT. It’s an exclusive ideology. And after ten years? Who does Petraeus think he’s fooling. Well, I can tell you that he certainly doesn’t think he’s fooling the Muslims. So, who’s being made the Jack ass here?
He knows that the reason he said that it would endanger our troops is because WE have NO cooperation, we have done nothing to bring Democracy there and the Muslims, not only don’t WANT Democracy, but they don’t know what it means. What they WANT is to DO what they WANT to do.
The Muslims have somehow been told that Democracy means that everyone does what they want. They have been sold a lie. Democracy DOESN’T mean that people get to do whatever they want. It means that there are personal Liberties that not the government,,nor anyone else, has a RIGHT to demand or to take away from you.
They have somehow been sold some lies, because they have been under some impression that ONLY Islam is sacred. The WEST has cajoled them into believing that the WEST thinks so too apparently.
Muslims will not yield to another religion.
The WESTs leaders have been only lying to the WESTs common person. The same common person that joins the military and thinks that he’s going to fight for something worth while. Then, some unfortunates find out the truth.
These people WANT Sharia. They call for DEMOCRACY to bring it to them. This is the misunderstanding of which I refer to. Sharia is anything but Democratic, yet they believe that it is Democratic for them to demand it
Afghans continue to condemn US Quran burning
Two policemen were killed and more than 30 people wounded in the southern city of Kandahar on Sunday during the third day of protests across Afghanistan triggered after the burning of a Koran by a radical fundamentalist Christian preacher in the United States.
One person was killed and 18 injured in what officials described as an accidental explosion that ripped through crowds of protesters in the southern city of Kandahar.
Ten people were killed and more than 80 wounded in Kandahar on Saturday. Seven foreign U.N. staff and five Afghan protesters were killed on Friday after demonstrators overran an office in normally peaceful Mazar-i-Sharif city in the north.
On Sunday, hundreds of people marched through Kandahar, towards another U.N. office, on the second day of protests in the city after U.S. preacher Terry Jones had supervised the burning of a copy of the Koran in front of about 50 people at a church in Florida on March 20.
“The information I have is that two policemen have been killed and 20 others, including police, protesters and citizens, have been wounded,” Ahmad Wali Karzai, head of the Kandahar provincial council, told Reuters.
Another 14 people, including two children, were wounded when protesters seized a gas cannister taken from a shop and set it on fire, causing an explosion, Zalmay Ayoubi, the spokesman for the Kandahar provincial governor said.
There were also demonstrations in Kabul, western Herat city, Jalalabad city in the east and northern Tahar province, and it initially appeared that Sunday’s march in Kandahar would also finish without incident.
“More anti-Islam acts planned in US”
Afghan President Hamid Karzai called on Congress to condemn the burning of the Koran and prevent it from happening again.
Karzai made the request at a meeting with U.S. ambassador Karl Eikenberry and General David Petraeus, the commander of U.S. and NATO forces in Afghanistan, the presidential palace said in a statement.
“The American Congress and Senate must condemn this in clear words, show their stance, and prevent such incidents from happening again,” the statement said.
Eikenberry read to Karzai from U.S. President Barack Obama’s earlier condemnation of the Koran burning, the statement said.
“The desecration of any holy text, including the Koran, is an act of extreme intolerance and bigotry,” Obama said in a statement released by the White House.
On Sunday, Petraeus joined the condemnation being voiced by many other political and religious leaders.
“We condemn, in particular, the action of an individual in the United States who recently burned the Holy Koran,” Petraeus said in a statement, which was also signed by NATO’s senior civilian representative, ambassador Mark Sedwill.
In an interview with Reuters on Saturday, however, Jones was unrepentant and defiantly vowed to lead an anti-Islam acts outside the biggest mosque in the United States later this month.
Around 1,000 people blocked the main highway from Kabul to Jalalabad earlier on Sunday and burned U.S. flags.
“We want the preacher who burnt the holy Koran to get a severe punishment,” said 20-year-old protester Jalil Ahmad. “He is not a human being, he is a brain-dead animal.”
The Taliban said in a statement on Sunday that Afghans were still ready to give their lives to protest against an offence that it said the West was not taking seriously.
“The U.S. government should have punished the perpetrators, but the American authorities and those in other countries not only did not have a serious reaction, but defended (the burning) to some extent in the name of freedom of religion and speech,” Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid said in a statement.
