“Pastor” Terry Jones is a Traitor

Nazi book burning

He most certainly has the First Amendment right to express his opinion and, even, burn the Koran. But that doesn’t make it right.

Virtually no one of any significance supports the plan by Dr. Terry Jones to burn the Koran on 9/11. In fact, the Commander in Afghanistan, GEN David Patraeus, condemned the planned Koran burning. He said:

Images of a burning of a Koran would undoubtedly be used by extremists in Afghanistan—and around the world—to inflame public opinion and incite violence. Such images could, in fact, be used as were the photos from Abu Ghraib. And this would, again, put our troops and civilians in jeopardy and undermine our efforts to accomplish the critical mission here in Afghanistan.

The Dove World Outreach Center hardly seems interested in peace or outreach, as it’s name might imply. In fact, the pastor of it’s 50-some congregation, Dr. Terry Jones, plans to proceed with burning the Koran no matter what, emphasis added:

Of course we care, it would be tragical [sic] if, if, because of this, one person, one person died. But, at the same time, we do not feel responsible for that.

Dr. Terry Jones

Terry Jones is supposed to be an educated man and a man of God. Yet, Jones makes up words and could care less about the teachings of Christ in the bible. He is an extremist in the same light as the Taliban. While he has the First Amendment right to burn the Koran, he is doing so at the expense of National diplomatic and security strategies. He is doing so while putting the lives of US and NATO military personnel on the line. He is risking nothing for his 15 minutes of fame. Yet, he refuses to even think twice about the disastrous effects his stunt could have on the Global War on Terror.

He may claim his Koran burning is a tribute to the victims of the attacks on 9-11, but he misses some of those victims were Muslim. Jones says he’s only protesting radical Islam, but he’s going to burn the holy book of all Muslims. He claims he’s not racist or intolerant, but he’s against any new mosques or immigration by Muslims. I’m sorry; I seem to be missing his point.

US troops in Afghanistan

In light of GEN Petraeus’ view, which I believe is accurate, Dr. Jones’ intentions are nothing short of treason. He is conspiring to provide aid and comfort to the enemy. The Taliban and al-Qaeda will use video of his Koran burning to recruit new insurgents and suicide bombers. Just the idea of Jones’ Koran burning has stirred anti-US sentiment in Afghanistan. In short, this clown is threatening to undo everything that’s been accomplished through blood and sweat in Afghanistan over the last 8 years. And what about Iraq, as well?

  1. I understand this Pastor and his message. It’s time we stand up for what we believe in and finally it’s time for those of us who believe, to tell the rest of you idiots to shut up and sit down. We’ve been quiet for too long. The Quran is a a book of servitude and violence. It calls for those practioners to murder ALL INFIDELS. Everyone keeps blasting this Pastor about our troops, well you know what? The militants in Afghanistan would kill our troops anyway! They don’t care. They never will. They HATE us and anyone else who does not practice Islam. This is BS that Muslims can say and do whatever they want, but the minute we, as American citizens, try to fight back, oh noooooo, we’re told we are wrong. We’re NOT wrong! Islam is of Satan and it WILL destroy our country like a cancer if it’s not stopped now. Islam is Islam. The only comrades to those who practice Islam are other practioners. The Quran forbids them to be friends with anyone outside of their faith. Wake up idiots!!!! Read the Quran for yourself! I am not an alarmist. Read it for yourself. Look at the countries dominated by these Islamic freaks. They’re destroyed. Women are about as valuable as a dog. No kite flying, music, etc. Let’s see how the good old USA handles that. They will destroy us from the inside if we let them. Enough is enough!

    • Please cite for me the part of the Quran that prohibits Muslims from being friends with non-Muslims.

      There’s no doubt a lot of people around the world hate Americans because we tend to be an arrogant and self-righteous people. That’s not justification for alienating moderate Muslims by burning their holy book. “Pastor” Jones is only looking for his 15 minutes of fame and could care less about you, standing up to Islam, or anything that doesn’t put money in his pocket. Take a look at what he’s really all about.

      In any case, burning the Quran does not constitute standing up for anything. Rather, it equates to an uninformed reactionary rant against an unspecified few. The fact it’s offensive to a majority of Muslims is no less insensitive than the planned cultural center near Ground Zero.

      It’s contrary to American values to accept, or even support, desecration of religious artifacts. Anyone who supports “Pastor” Jones is a victim of his/her prejudices. Burning the Quran, in the tradition of Nazi book burning, is right up your narrow-minded alley.

  3. CS, you have put this issue in perspective. Jones is typical of these self-appointed saviors. He and people like him could care less how many innocent lives they put in danger, or how many die. His only self-righteous concern is building a name for him self, increasing his “flock” to a point of become a multi-millionaire and someone of “power”. He is a perfect example of why our forefathers saw fit to insure a separation of church and state. I’m sure Jones is one that has quoted our Constitution and Amendments in the past, yet he’s willing to throw out the 1st Amendment for this cause, making him a “Conditional” Constitutionist.

    • Thanks for stopping by, Old Man. I agree with you 100%.

  4. Good post CS. In fact, the famous Christian refugee from Israel, Rov Tov, refers to the pastor as Terry ‘CIA’ Jones. Tov says Terry Jones’s antics are a “false flag” action, cut from CIA material. And ziofascism says it’s a psy-op to distract from Zionist guilt in 2010.

    • An interesting perspective not inconsistent with the fact Jones changed his mind after all.
