When have they not been pissed at us? Muslims don't like our freedoms, they hate women being free to do as they please, they hate our freedom of expression, press and criticism. They will never be happy as long as we hold these freedoms.
"Muslim" does not equal "hatred of American freedom".
That is why there are Muslim Americans. They liked American freedom so much they decided to live here (and of course I'm excluding Muslim extremist terrorists, because they're obviously not so big on America and not who I'm talking about).
On subject, though, I don't think that Qu`ran burning is OK, but it is allowed in our rights. That being said, it's made much worse by the fact that this whole book burning deal could get American soldiers killed in the Middle East. So . . . maybe it technically isn't in our rights, if it endangers others, though no one could really prove it.
this is just the same as drawing muhammad day.
Anyway, I don't dispute that every US citizen has their rights to do as they please but, what happened to Christians being "Christ like?" Respecting one another/loving thy neighbor and so on. It's more of a moral issue to me, rather than an issue of exercising one's rights as a US citizen, because I know that no Christian would tolerate a bible burning. They'd rather burn science books before they let that happen.
this is just madness how they dare to burn our Islamic Koran , this is a holy book from God no one have the right to do anything bad to it .. God gave us this book to work with it great words the great meaning in every letter in it and glorify it ...
i don't know why they do this to us , we Islamic people glorify every book of God's books it is true that all human devided into groups becasues of realigon but we all share one thing is worship One God Our God .... we respect every realigon and we had never insulted any realigon or it book ... *very mad*
i will not say anything else becasue everything i say can't make anything i will leave everything in the great hands of God he know what they are doing ... =^_^=
i think Pastor Bob Botsford said it best on his twitter, "Quick review Xn's: The LIGHT we're called to be... doesn't come from Koran burning bonfires of hate (Mt5:44). We clear on that? Ok carry on."
"You have heard that it was said, 'Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.' But I tell you: Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? And if you greet only your brothers, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that? Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect."
I'm almost positive that technically he is covered under Freedom of Speech. The reason why I say I'm almost positive that technically he wont get into trouble is because years ago a guy decided to burn an American flag because he was upset with America. Most people believe that he should have been sent to jail however he was covered under Freedom of Speech. After saying that even though I'm pretty sure it is legal I believe that it was very ill mannered of him to do such a thing.
Of course many people were upset after 9/11 however I believe that is not fair to take it out on every Muslim. They aren't all like that. That's like saying all nerds will be like Bill Gates, blonds are all dumb, pit bulls are all aggressive and mean, all Christians are bible thumpers, bigger people are all slobs and sloths, only skinny people exercise and eat healthy, all jocks only want one thing, and so many more assumptions. It's not fair to anyone to be judgmental.
