I’m on vacation and trying to unplug but the news can make that hard. I just read the story about the Florida church planning to burn copies of the Koran.
What is wrong with us? It’s just like the Ground Zero mosque plan. Does this church have the right? Yes. Should they? No. And not because of the potential backlash or violence. Simply because it is wrong. The more I reflect on what happened on 8/28 the more I realize the amazing power of GOOD.
We must be the better person. We must be bigger than our problems. Bigger than the times in which we live. Burning the Koran is like burning the flag or the Bible. You can do it, but whose heart will you change by doing it? You will only harden the hearts of those who could be moved. None of those who are thinking about killing us will be affected, but our good Muslim friends and neighbors will be saddened. It makes the battle that they face inside their own communities even harder.
Let us rise above the current levels and elevate ourselves and our country. The only thing this act would prove is that you CAN burn a Koran. I didn’t know America was in doubt on that fact. Let’s prove to each other that while there are many things we can do, there are maybe many more things that we choose not to do.

Is another (non-alcoholic) beer summit in order? Perhaps this time to discuss the controversial plans to build a mosque near Ground Zero? That’s what one lawyer joined lawmakers in suggesting Sunday in a fiery exchange on America’s News Headquarters. Brett Joshpe, an attorney with the American Center for Law and Justice, says opposition to the planned Cordoba House has been mischaracterized and hijacked by politics. Joshpe’s organization has filed a lawsuit against the New York City Landmarks Preservation Committee for declining to grant landmark status to the proposed site.
“This is not about Islamaphobia,” he said. “This is deliberately provocative and inflammatory….If the president wants to show some leadership on this issue, rather than taking a stance and then backtracking from it, I think the president should invite both sides to the White House to sit down and discuss this.”
The proposed project is a 13-story, $100 million Isamic center that would be built just two blocks from Ground Zero and include a mosque, a 500-seat auditorium, a swimming pool and a gym. The plan has prompted both protest and support from the New York City community in recent weeks.

More peace and tolerance and interfaith dialogue between Muslims and non-Muslims. Attack, slaughter, hound; all in a day’s work.
JOS, Nigeria — Muslims attacked a Christian village in central Nigeria on Saturday, killing eight people with machetes and burning seven houses and a church in fresh religious violence, an army spokesman said.
The attack followed clashes in eastern Nigeria earlier in the week that also killed eight and left six mosques and a church burnt.
“It’s true eight people were killed,” Lieutenant Colonel Kingsley Umoh said.
An AFP correspondent saw the bodies, as well as the burnt houses and church in Mazzah village, near the city of Jos, where deadly religious clashes have occurred a number of times in recent months.
Umoh said Fulani Muslims entered Mazzah between 1:30 am and 5:00 am, shooting sporadically in the air to lure sleeping residents outside their homes before they were killed.
“Seven people were killed instantly with machetes while three others were seriously injured. One of them died on the way to the hospital,” he said.
He said troop reinforcements had been deployed to Mazzah, some 14 kilometres (nine miles) from Jos, the capital of central Plateau State, to prevent the violence from escalating.
The village was calm on Saturday afternoon, but some residents were seen leaving for Jos out of fears for their safety.
A senior state official, Gyang Pwajok, described the overnight attack on the mainly Christian village as an “act of terrorism”.
Plateau State lies in the so-called middle belt between the predominantly Muslim north and the mainly Christian south.

FP: Hi Pamela Geller, welcome back to Frontpage Interview.
Tell us about your new honor killing awareness campaign.
Geller: Thanks Jamie.
The honor killing awareness campaign is Stop Islamization of America’s (SIOA) next campaign to reach and educate the American people. Taxicab ads have hit the streets of Chicago, the first in a nationwide campaign.

After the media feeding frenzy our pro-freedom bus ads created for Muslims in trouble, I thought you should know we received hundreds of emails from Muslims thanking us and added a good number of safe houses too.
I also thought you ought to have a look see at all of the convert to Islam ads that were running across the country.
Zomblog had the best recap of the convert to Islam ads that ran nationwide in a half a million dollar campaign. Where was all the hostile media then? Did they dare attack the Islamic supremacists that ran these dawah ads to convert the kuffir and the infidel? No they stayed quiet and subdued.
But SIOA’s little bus campaign made these spineless, gutless wonders go ballistic on me which just goes to show you two things. First, how sick and in trouble our society already is and that these bigots and supremacists advocate for the killing of apostates because that is the objective of the pro-freedom bus ads. To save lives. But the jihadists don’t like it so out from under their rocks come thire shills, slugs, worms, tools and useful idiots.
