The Thoughts of One Angry American Lady

"Are we fighting a war on terror or aren't we? Was it or was it not started by Islamic people who brought it to our shores on September 11, 2001?

Were people from all over the world, mostly Americans, not brutally murdered that day, in downtown Manhattan, across the Potomac from our nation's capitol and in a field in Pennsylvania?

Did nearly three thousand men, women and children die a horrible, burning or crushing death that day, or didn't they?

And I'm supposed to care that a copy of the Koran was "desecrated" when an overworked American soldier kicked it or got it wet?...Well, I don't. I don't care at all.

I'll start caring when Osama bin Laden turns himself in and repents for incinerating all those innocent people on 9/11.

I'll care about the Koran when the fanatics in the Middle East start caring about the Holy Bible, the mere possession of which is a crime in Saudi Arabia.

I'll care when these thugs tell the world they are sorry for hacking off Nick Berg's head while Berg screamed through his gurgling slashed throat.

I'll care when the cowardly so-called "insurgents" in Iraq come out and fight like men instead of disrespecting their own religion by hiding in mosques.

I'll care when the mindless zealots who blow themselves up in search of nirvana care about the innocent children within range of their suicide bombs.

I'll care when the American media stops pretending that their First Amendment liberties are somehow derived from international law instead of the United States Constitution's Bill of Rights.

In the meantime, when I hear a story about a brave marine roughing up an Iraqi terrorist to obtain information, know this: I don't care.

When I see a fuzzy photo of a pile of naked Iraqi prisoners who have been humiliated in what amounts to a college-hazing incident, rest assured: I don't care.

When I see a wounded terrorist get shot in the head when he is told not to move because he might be booby-trapped, you can take it to the bank: I don't care.

When I hear that a prisoner, who was issued a Koran and a prayer mat, and fed "special" food that is paid for by my tax dollars, is complaining that his holy book is being "mishandled," you can absolutely believe in your heart of hearts: I don't care.

And oh, by the way, I've noticed that sometimes it's spelled "Koran" and other times "Quran." Well, Jimmy Crack Corn and-you guessed it-I don't care !!

If you agree with this viewpoint, pass this on to all your E-mail friends. Sooner or later, it'll get to the people responsible for this ridiculous behavior!

If you don't agree, then by all means hit the delete button. Should you choose the latter, then please don't complain when more atrocities committed by radical Muslims happen here in our great Country! And may I add:

"Some people spend an entire lifetime wondering if they made a difference in the world. But, the Marines don't have that problem" -- Ronald Reagan

I have another quote that I would like to add AND.......I hope you forward all this.

"If we ever forget that we're One Nation Under God, then we will be a nation gone under." Also by.. Ronald Reagan

One last thought for the day:

In case we find ourselves starting to believe all the Anti-American sentiment and negativity, we should remember England 's Prime Minister Tony Blair's words during a recent interview. When asked by one of his Parliament members why he believes so much in America, he said: "A simple way to take measure of a country is to look at how many want in.. And how many want out."

Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you:
1. Jesus Christ
2. The American G. I.

One died for your soul, the other for your freedom."

Possession of a Bible is not a crime in Saudi Arabia. Possessions of quantities of Bibles that would suggest proselytizing is illegal, as is proselytizing itself.

Many people talk about the need to reform Islam. Now you can stop talking and start helping.

With the help of our readers we went through the Koran and removed every verse that we believe did not come from Allah, the Most Merciful, the Most Compassionate. However, it is possible that we missed something, and we could use your help. If you find verses in the reformed version of the Koran that promote violence, divisiveness, religious or gender superiority, bigotry, or discrimination, please let us know the number of the verse and the reason why it should be removed. Please email your suggestions to koran-AT-reformislam.org.

When we finish editing process, we would like to publish Reform Koran in as many languages as possible. If you could help with translation or distribution of the Reform Koran, please email us at koran-AT-reformislam.org. If you could provide financial support, please visit our support page.

American Lady,

My sentiments exactly.
and John Burgess:

"The importation [to Saudi Arabia] and use of narcotics, alcohol, pork products and religious books, apart from the Koran, and artifacts are forbidden,"

In China too:

Organizers for the 2008 Olympics in China have released their list of items banned from the Olympic village where the athletes will stay. Among the "prohibited objects" -- Bibles. The Catholic News Agency reports that the committee behind the Beijing games cited "security reasons" for the ban.

The ICTA has only used it's powers to block a website twice in the past. In both of these cases it was because pornographic images had been included in non-pornographic website. These two website (a website of the government and the Mahatma Gandhi Institute website) were both in the .mu domain (i.e. in the jurisdiction of Mauritius). It is therefore the first time a foreign site is blocked from Mauritius. It is a very sad first time for Mauritius and may cause Mauritius to be included in the watchlist of the OpenNet Initiative.

different rules and different interpretation, for example,the practise of wahabi belief is different from shiteism, both are legislated and supported by the government.In some country import of alcohol,pork are banned.However in other muslim countries like indonesia,import of bible, alcohol etc are allowed , final analysis, it more about politics rather than religion itself.

Tony Blair's comments about "how many" are let in and out of a country are a joke, as he enabled millions of migrants to pour into Britain, and along with this globalist-Eurocrap comes all the crime and religious fanaticism we see on our streets, and now we the Brits, must suffer the loss of our ancient freedoms to control the problems caused, because our gutless spineless leaders are tooo afraid to tackle the root cause of the problems.
Anyways, what is he talking about? What does he know of the future of America with tens of millions of illegals now living there?
The man was always a do-gooding Buffoon.

You cannot reform the unreformable.
Forget it!
If you were to study the history of what you refer to, you would see that that the agglomeration of texts were all accumulated and rewritten by the various scholars (Muslim, Bukhari etc.)much later on, at dates not in line with the concept of all these words coming from God. (Not my thoughts but a proven fact.)
God does not need puny mortals to do his speaking, if he is Almighty.
You defame God by believing a human can convey His message.
Study your history.
There is no hope of reforming, there are too many who see only with blinkers, and your commenter's know this and expose this.
It may kid Western Liberals, but they too are beyond help.

John Burgess:

Forgive me for contradicting you, but you are wrong about importing the Bible into Saudi Arabia. The possession of a Bible in Saudi Arabia by anyone, even an 'infidel', is a punishable offence. One takes a Bible into the desert kingdom at one's own peril.

Mark said...

Muslims Against Sharia:

The work you are doing is quite, quite admirable; however, it is my firm belief that Islam is utterly un-reformable, as Anonymous stated.

My reason for saying this is that the Qur'an is believed to be the actual words of Allah. Therefore to change even a syllable or word is tantamount to heresy. It implies that Allah has erred.

The only Muslims who might accept such a reformed version of the Qur'an, in my opinion, are the non-practising, nominal Muslims, who are anyway not a threat to the West. They probably came here to gain liberty. Try getting the fanatics and radicals to accept the reformed version of the Qur'an, though. That will be a different story.

I wish you all the luck in the world with your venture. I shall observe the development with great interest. You might find, however, that there will be as strong a reaction to such a revision as there was to the cartoons of the prophet in Denmark.

My sentiments exactly. Our politicians, to a man, are "gutless and spineless"! As for Blair, well, he was full of hot air.

"My reason for saying this is that the Qur'an is believed to be the actual words of Allah."

Since the Koran contains contradictions and God is infallible, the Koran CANNOT be the literate word of God.

I agree with you, but the Muslim fanatics and radicals would not. And those are the people you will have to be able to convince. So how are you going to achieve that? They believe that the verses in the Qur'an/Koran are the literal words of Allah.

You have a tough job ahead of you. I wish you only the best.

Muslims Against Sharia said...

"I agree with you, but the Muslim fanatics and radicals would not. And those are the people you will have to be able to convince."

You cannot be serious! How can you convince a fanatic of anything? You have a better chance of turning water into wine. Our audience is moderate Muslims, who are not yet infected by Islamist plague.

Glad to hear it, since it is more realistic. Moderate Muslims, of course, are not the problem. But there is a problem there, too, because I have seen moderate Muslims transform themselves into radical ones in a relatively short time. What's to stop any 'moderate Muslim' turning into a radical one? Nothing, of course. As you say: They just have to be "infected".

"What's to stop any 'moderate Muslim' turning into a radical one?"

Education. Open-minded people can be educated. Brainwashed, not so much.

I would say: Open-minded people can be educated. Brainwashed, not at all! :-)

Islam, not Islamism, or any of the politically-correct variants, has a way of closing people's minds. BIG time!

interesting debate, in my opinion there is no problem with Koran,there is problem with interpretations, a wahabi scholar will differ with shiite scholar over school of thoughts, furthermore they expand to include hadiths to justify whatever they do ,there were thousand of reports,accordingly some were even shiite hadiths written by persians,tell me who have the authority to say which one is genuine or not, afterall most were written hundred of years after the death of prophet? Not only there is a struggle of righteousness among muslims, the situation become more complicated when they mixing politics and religion.

Muslims Against Sharia said...

"in my opinion there is no problem with Koran,there is problem with interpretations"

Apparently, you never read the Koran. There is no way to interpret "kill them [infidels] wherever you find them" other then to kill them wherever you find them. If we believe it came from Allah and we follow the command, we become mass murderers. If we ignore it, we are bad Muslims. But if we follow this command, we violate Koranic teaching that human life is precious. So, either way, we are bad Muslims.

Still think there is no problem with the Koran?

Anonymous said...

muslims against sharia

The reason I said this, is because there is also contradiction in the old testament of the bible.

However I do question the verification/compilation done by the high priests of council of Nicene regarding which books/gospel were words of God and which were not. Similarly, most muslims claimed prophet wrote the holy book but then he was illiterate.So, something don't stick.I agree (with you) that Allah,being merciful, will not agree to killing of innocent human beings, think some scholars incorporate the verses with selfish agenda.

To quote the Koran: "The infidels tried to play a trick with Allah, and Allah played a trick back. For verily, Allah is a great trickster"3:54 Koran

It's quotes like these that makes believe that the Koran is truly an awe-inspiring religion. You have verses that tell people that they can lie to non-believers in order to garner converts, or to show Islam as favourable to non-Muslims. You then have verses that corroborate these unethical practices by explicitly stating that allah is a "great trickster"...

The question is, how does anyone in their right mind believe that the Koran is a source of ethical guidance, when it clearly is a book showing people how to be violently manipulative.
