Pentagon: Gen. David Petraeus Warns Against Church's Koran Burning, Dove World Outreach Center Supports Ground Zero Mosque Activist Pamela Geller.
A Florida church's plan to burn Korans on Sept. 11 isn't doing the troops in Afghanistan any favors, Gen. David Petraeus said Monday. Hundreds of Afghans protested Monday in Kabul over the decision by the Gainesville, Fla.-based Dove World Outreach Center, run by Pastor Terry Jones, to burn copies of what Muslims consider the word of God. Petraeus said he's concerned that the protests could spread across the country.
"It could endanger troops and it could endanger the overall effort in Afghanistan. It is precisely the kind of action the Taliban uses and could cause significant problems. Not just here, but everywhere in the world we are engaged with the Islamic community," Petraeus said in a statement provided to Fox News.
The U.S. Embassy in Kabul issued a statement condemning the church's plans, saying Washington was "deeply concerned about deliberate attempts to offend members of religious or ethnic groups." But outside the U.S. Embassy, where as many as 500 protestors chanted "Long live Islam" and "Death to America," demonstrators argued that the church isn't acting of its own will.
"We know this is not just the decision of a church. It is the decision of the president and the entire United States," said Abdul Shakoor, an 18-year-old high school student who said he joined the protest after hearing neighborhood gossip about the Koran burning. Burning a Koran is considered by Muslims among the most offensive actions taken against Islam., more from this source.................
Dove World Outreach Center in Gainesville, Fla run by Pastor Terry Jones Supports Ground Zero Mosque Activist Pamela Geller. On the website of the Dove World Outreach Center see link http://www.doveworld.org/blog/obama-said-i-am-a-moslem is an article written by radical activist Pamela Geller, Obama said: "I am a Moslem".
"The American President told me in confidence that he is a Muslim." That was the claim of Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Aboul Gheit, as reported in the May 2010 issue of Israel Today, writes Pamela Geller.
Ouch. What a disgrace. Now: will the lapdog media make Obama address Gheit's claim? The American people deserve answers. But whether or not what Gheit reportedly says is true, Obama's pro-jihad track record is clear, writes Pamela Geller.
