WE REJECT OBAMA'S KID-GLOVE STANCE
We of the Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) reject American President Barrack Obama's soft handling of the burning of the Qur'an. He merely condemned the incident. This is not enough. Muslims want those two American fanatics brought to book. Does American law stomach incitement? Terry Jones and Wayne Sapp must be stopped by their own government. No responsible government anywhere in the world will allow its citizens to take actions capable of disturbing world peace. Crisis management requires an iron will. Obama must act now or be held responsible for the reactions of the Muslim world.
Defacing a holy book is an act of aggression against the Creator. Aggression against the Creator is an violent affront against humanity. MURIC has said it before: terrorism is mere smoke; provocation is the fire and cause of the smoke. Any good fire-fighter will direct the hose not at the smoke but at the fire. If you extinguish the fire, the smoke vanishes without lifting a finger at it. But if, in your own wisdom, you choose to fight the smoke, then you may have to keep fighting at very huge cost till Kingdom comes. Justice is the soul of peace.
Both Wayne Sapp and Terry Jones who were responsible for the burning of the Qur'an are planning a protest against the Qur'an for April 22, 2011. The proposed venue is the largest central mosque in America. Only Allah knows what they will do next. We believe that these two American terrorists have been emboldened by the tacit approval so far received for their criminal acts against humanity.
As part of the moderate elements in the Muslim world, we are being embarrassed by acts of injustice coming from the United States, the West in general and the United Nations. It is not helping the cause of dialogue, rather it is being used by extremists to justify their acts of terror and to recruit more sympathisers.
We repeat again: JUSTICE is the SOUL of PEACE
