REVEREND TERRY JONES, PLEASE NO KORANIC INFERNO ON 9/11!
As if the crisis facing America is not enough already - a faltering economy and two wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, an American Taliban and extremist right winger Reverend Terry Jones has decided to pour fuel unto a burning fire. His gasoline of choice, the Islamic Koran; which he has decided to burn in order to prove a point and knowingly provoke another anti-America reactions from the one billion strong Muslims of this world. Icheoku says if this is not one stretch of taking the freedom of speech one step too long, nothing else so qualifies and we hereby call on the government to do everything possible including obtaining an injunction to prevent this intolerant extremist from stoking an already smouldering Muslim fire of resentment. That someone has the freedom of speech does not guarantee that person the right to shout fire in a crowded theater and this Koranic inferno is one heck of such unwanted nuisance at this time; when America is trying to make good with the Muslim world.
Icheoku's position is that constitutional freedom of speech is not sacrosanct to anarchical mischief hence this scheduled burning of Islamic Koran on September 11th, must and should not be allowed to go on. But regrettably, the Republican Party and their mega-phone in chief, the man who runs the Republican Party and Tea Partier Numero Uno, Rush Limbaugh have kept mum and have failed, refused to condemn this errant pastor whose intended act is capable of endangering the lives of thousands of Americans scattered throughout the Muslim world; especially that of our soldiers waging wars in two Muslim countries of Iraq and Afghanistan. Icheoku says Reverend Jones is not in a position to know which religion is of the devil and has no right to proclaim Islam as the devil's religion since by his impending provocative act, he seems to be a devil worshipper seeking the blood of the innocence to spill from possible reactionary riots and protests. Which true man of God would be this provocative, instead of being the meek peace makers they are known for; and we hereby call on the Federal government to take a closer look at Reverend Jones 50 members Dove World Outreach Center, a church that preaches anti-Islam philosophy to make sure it is not another David Koresh Branch Davidians getting ready for their end times?
To Reverend Jones remarks, "when do we stop? How much do we back down? How many times do we back down? Instead of us backing down, maybe it's to time to stand up. Maybe it's time to send a message to radical Islam that we will not tolerate their behavior;" Icheoku says the Koran does not belong to the radical Islam wing of the Muslim world but the entire over one billion men and women who knock their foreheads on the ground in total submission to the will of Allah (God). It is such a parochial thoughtless action trying to make a statement to a few bad Muslims and they provoking the anger of the many good ones and should be discouraged. What a crass agent provocateur this supposed man of God or is it the Devil, is; and in the words of the US Attorney General his planned action is both idiotic and dangerous and should be condemned by every sane American. Except he is just trying to start another fire for the Obama administration to deal with. Lets hope that this so called Reverend was merely interested in fame or should we say rather notoriety and now that he has got his fifteen minutes of it, he should quietly back down and spare America's State department and the Pentagon added chore to their already filled plate. Go get some life Reverend Terry Jones and let sleeping dog to lie; say no to desecration of Muslim's sacred book of faith, the Koran - there should be no Koranic inferno in Gainsville Florida!
