FBI Warns of Terror Response to Planned Koran Burning has received a leaked copy of an internal FBI memo warning of a possible terrorist response to “International Burn A Koran Day,” an event scheduled for the ninth anniversary of the September 11 attack to be held by the Dove World Outreach Center in Gainesville, Florida. . .

Last year, the church distributed t-shirts reading “Islam is of the Devil.” On August 26, 2009, Fox News reported that students were sent home from Florida schools for wearing the t-shirt.

Earlier today, General David Petraeus, currently the top U.S. commander in Afghanistan, said the Taliban would exploit the demonstration for propaganda purposes. “It could endanger troops and it could endanger the overall effort,” Petraeus told the Wall Street Journal. Hundreds of Afghans attended a demonstration in Kabul on Monday to protest the event to be held in Florida.

On September 5, thousands of Muslims protested the event in Indonesia. Rokhmat Labib, chairman of the Islamic group Hizbut Tahrir Indonesia, said Muslims must not remain silent when their faith is threatened. Hizbut Tahrir Indonesia is an international pan-Islamic political organization whose goal is for all Muslim countries to unify as an Islamic state. Indonesia is the world’s largest Muslin nation."

This plan by a Christian church to burn copies of the Koran stinks, and not because they do not have the right to do so -- they have every right to do that under the First Amendment. Whether or not I think it is appropriate is irrelevant, because clearly the right is there. But it smells of provocateur action to me. Alex Jones has uncovered a lot of circumstantial evidence linking the people behind the controversial Ground Zero mosque/community center to intelligence agencies. There is a high likelihood that that whole storyline was created by the government to stir up anti-Muslim feelings in preparation either for a planned Israeli strike on Iran's nuclear facilities or a new war pitting the United States against Iran or possibly Pakistan.

I think it is certainly possible that this church in Florida, the Dove World Outreach Center, is either knowingly or unknowingly planning this mass Koran burning at the behest of the government as the flip side of this apparent plan to pit Muslims versus non-Muslims in America. This may be meant to enrage Muslims and get their juices boiling just like the Ground Zero mosque debate has done to nearly every non-Muslim group. Of course it would provoke a reaction, and in fact it already has. Drudge reports that Muslims are already protesting outside the church chanting "Death to America." Religion of peace, and all that.

But I won't blame the Muslims for being furious if the church members actually do go ahead and burn their holy book, its pages be blessed. Christians would be enraged if Muslims burned Bibles. The difference is that Christians typically do not convert internal anger into violent acts perpetrated upon others, and radical Muslims often do. I hope the bonfire does not actually happen, but if it does it could be very dangerous. If Muslims start rioting or burning cars as they do in France, if spontaneous beatings or shootings or bombings begin to pop up in America, it could give Homeland Insecurity an excuse to crack down on everyone in the country. And that would be a great step for the globalists in their endgame for total enslavement, as Jones identified it.

I won't blame the Muslims for being angry if their Book is burned, but they need to remain nonviolent in their protests, and they need to realize one thing -- this is the United States of America, not some Middle East hellhole from which they or their parents fled. They choose to live here, so they must respect our laws, culture and conventions. Michael Savage often says that free speech rights do not exist to protect polite speech, for that would be unnecessary.

We have a First Amendment to protect offensive speech, and as childish an act as burning holy books would be, it is indeed protected. Everyone must remain calm, Muslims, Christians, Jews, atheists and all the rest. The globalists would love nothing more than a war to break out between Muslims and others in America. We must work hard to defuse situations like the Ground Zero Mosque and the Florida Koran burning before they produce enough sparks to light this country on fire.
