How come there's no outrage here
    

    
Not a peep!  Wonder why? 
 
Riddle me this?

 

"Why are Pakistanis throwing away 100s of Korans into sewage filled canal?"

They want to see if Obama will apologize for it, why else.

Obama: Sharia enforcer

Robert Spencer says madness has overtaken Washington, and the world. Every day this past week has brought fresh reports of more people murdered in Afghanistan over the burning of some copies of the Qur’an at Bagram Airfield. In response, every day new apologies come from American officials. Barack Obama, Leon Panetta, the commander of NATO troops in Afghanistan, General John Allen, and others have all issued abject apologies to Afghan President Hamid Karzai, the "noble people of Afghanistan," and everyone else in sight.
 
Even the most minor of officials are getting into the act: Peter Lavoy, acting assistant secretary of defense for Asia and Pacific security affairs, scraping the bottom of the barrel for a suitable object for his abject submission, apologized to Muslims in the Washington, D.C. area.

Some have rightly skewered Obama and his cohorts for their cowardice and eagerness to appease the Afghan mobs, especially as the death toll steadily mounts. No one, however, has noted the most remarkable aspect of this entire episode: the United States Government has, no questions asked, eagerly embraced Islamic law (Sharia) regarding the treatment of the Qur’an, and assured the Afghans that it will be enforced.
 
In his apology letter to Karzai, Obama said that the Qur’an-burning was "inadvertent," but that nevertheless "we will take the appropriate steps to avoid any recurrence, including holding accountable those responsible."
 
If it was "inadvertent," why does Obama intend to hold them accountable? Accidents will happen. If he is going to adopt Sharia to the extent that he thinks that anyone should be held accountable for this at all, is he going to adopt Sharia punishments for this "crime" as well? Will he have the U.S. soldiers whom he finds to be responsible for the Qur’an-burning beheaded?
 
If not, why not?
 
If burning the Qur’an is now a crime for Americans, and we are thus now subject to Islamic law, how much Sharia are we under? To what extent have we capitulated? Where does Obama draw the line, if anywhere?

Will there be stonings of adulteresses, amputations of the hands of thieves, and beheadings of apostates from Islam and blasphemers of Muhammad on the Mall? If you think these are absurd questions, consider that these are all elements of the same Islamic law that Obama has now vowed to enforce in regard to the burning of the Qur’an. Meanwhile, Secretary of State Clinton has held a closed-door meeting with the Secretary-General of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) in order to discuss strategies for enforcing Sharia restrictions on free speech regarding Islam in Western countries. Obama’s Justice Department has gone to court more than once to compel American businesses and educational institutions to change the way they operate in order to accommodate particularities of Islamic law and practice.
 
What will be the outcome of all this? No one knows or cares, because even conservative news outlets are now bowing to delicate Islamic sensibilities and dropping coverage of jihad news. It’s over ten years since 9/11, and nothing much has happened since then, right? And there is so very much election coverage to be gotten to.
 
Never mind that the jihad’s continued advance is best illustrated by Obama’s eagerness to appease, and by the collective Western failure to stand up and say what should be said to what General Allen called the "noble people of Afghanistan": "What madness has overtaken you? None of the people you have killed ever burned a Qur’an. And are your Allah and your Muhammad so fragile that burning one copy, or even a few copies, of a book of which millions and millions of copies exist, really hurts them so much that you think killing people who had nothing to do with it is a proper response? No killing is appropriate in this case, even of those who did this. You people have gone mad. All decent people should rise and condemn you."

The jihad terrorists who struck America on 9/11 were doing so in order to weaken the U.S. to the extent that eventually our free society would surrender to the rule of Islamic law. And now it is happening – but as the OIC’s agenda of stifling every critical word about Islam also advances apace in the U.S., fewer and fewer people will know about it. How will they find out? The Left is complicit, and the Right is afraid to tell them.
 
Has the conquest of a great nation ever been this easy?
 

Spencer is 100% correct!
 

"...the OIC’s agenda of stifling every critical word about Islam also advances apace in the U.S"
 

Just look at what this judge did just last week in Pennsylvania.

Karzai’s response to Obama’s apology:  Put U.S. troops on trial and punish them

Terence P. Jeffrey is reporting that three days after Barack Obama dispatched his ambassador to Afghanistan to hand deliver a personal letter from the president of the United States to Afghan President Hamid Karzai apologizing because U.S. forces at Bagram Air Force Base had mistakenly burnt some Korans, Karzai has responded to the gesture in a statement broadcast live on Afghan television.
 
Karzai, according to a BBC translation of his remarks made Sunday, told the Afghan people he was speaking to them after discussing the matter with “jihadi leaders,” “prominent scholars,” and Afghan elected officials, and that he spoke for the “pure sentiments” of the “Afghan nation” and the “Islamic world,” when he said: “We call on the US government to bring the perpetrators of the act to justice and put them on trial and punish them.”
 
At the same time Karzai was demanding the prosecution and punishment of U.S. troops involved in the Koran-burning incident, he conceded that the U.S. government had indicated that the Koran burning “was not deliberate.”
 
"We all know that regrettably some days ago an American soldier burnt our Holy Koran,” Karzai said, according to the BBC translation. “We condemn this vicious act in the strongest terms. The government and the people, scholars, tribal dignitaries, spiritual figures of Afghanistan, the educated people of our country all share the people's feelings... Our people's sensitiveness is right and is laudable.”
 
"The US government says that such act was carried out because of ignorance and lack of knowledge,” Karzai said. “This incident happened as a result of the ignorance of the US military officer about our vision about Islam and not recognizing the Koran. It was not deliberate."
 
"Today,” Karzai said, “we had a detailed session attended by jihadi leaders, prominent scholars, speakers of both houses--the lower house and the senate--the esteemed chief justice, vice presidents and other dignitaries and our government. We discussed the matter of the burning of the Holy Koran. Representing the Afghan nation and their pure sentiments, in fact the Islamic world, once again we call on the US government to bring the perpetrators of the act to justice and put them on trial and punish them."
 
While lauding the Afghan people for the “sensitiveness” to the Koran burning, and calling for the prosecution and punishment of the U.S. military personnel involved, Karzai appealed to Afghans to calm down and allow the Afghan and U.S. governments to move “pursue the matter.”
 
"We should all try to calm down and by calming down we should not allow the enemies of security and peace and progress of the people of Afghanistan to misuse or hurt our people's property or our people's lives by using the people's sensitiveness,” said Karzai. “We hope our people will be calm and develop the country. They should be sure that the government of Afghanistan and all its institutions will pursue the matter and we and the US government will pursue the matter."
 
The White House did not publicly release the three-page letter that Obama sent to Karzai on Thursday. However, the New York  Times reported on Friday, that Karzai’s press office said two of the sentences in Obama’s letter said: “I wish to express my deep regret for the reported incident. I extend to you and the Afghan people my sincere apologies.”

At his time, I say bring ALL of our troops home, secure our borders and do not let anyone from that area in on any type of visa or anything else!  Stop ALL financial aid to the region.  They attack us again and then we make glass out of the whole region and give it all to Israel!  Obama is clearly not interested in the safety of our troops or our country in the least.

U. S. Official visits Virginia mosque to apologize for Koran burning

Fox News is reporting that a Defense Department official visited a Virginia mosque Friday to reiterate Obama's apologies for the burning of Korans at a US military base in Afghanistan, pledging that those responsible will be held "appropriately accountable."
 
Lavoy said Friday that the holy books were burned "unknowingly and improperly" and that the military "neglected, out of ignorance, long-established, correct procedures for handling religious materials."
 
"I know that apologies are never enough and do not erase this incident," he said, adding, "We will hold people appropriately accountable."
 
He also noted that US commander Gen. John Allen apologized to Afghan President Hamid Karzai and to the Afghan government and people, that Defense Secretary Leon Panetta apologized and pledged to personally review results of an investigation into the incident and that President Barack Obama wrote a letter of apology to Karzai that US Ambassador Ryan Crocker delivered by hand.
 
The string of apologies from the Obama administration has come under harsh criticism by Republicans. Presidential candidate Newt Gingrich called the president's apology "an outrage" and a "destructive double standard," while Sarah Palin tweeted that the "US trained & protected Afghan Army can apologize for killing our soldiers yesterday."

Still no apologies from anyone about the murder of American and NATO officers.

Obama won't ask Karzai for apology for murders of American military officers

Joel Gehrke is reporting that Principal Deputy Press Secretary Josh Earnest was asked if "the President [is] seeking an apology from President Karzai for the fact that U.S. service personnel were killed" during protests over the burning of Korans at Bagram Air Force Base.

Earnest's earnest response?

"There is no doubt that we’re working through a difficult situation there, but we are going to stay on track of accomplishing our goal and continuing to make the significant progress that we have made in ensuring that Afghanistan cannot be a safe haven for al Qaeda or other violent extremists."

In other words, NO!

Obama called the commander of the International Security Assistance Force today to offer condolences for the “tragic killing of U.S. troops” in Kabul and to discuss the ongoing violence in Afghanistan.

A "White House official" said, "On behalf of the American people, the president expressed his condolences to [Marine Corps Gen. John R. Allen] and to the families who lost loved ones."
 

Obama couldn't even force himself to personally extend those condolensces.
 

Evidently, in Obama's mind, burning a Quran is a worse crime that the murder of American military officers.
 
Color me surprised!

Tired of Obama’s Koran-burning apologies yet?
 

Debbie Schlussel says over the last few days, I think I’ve counted at least 15 separate apologies from various divisions of Barack Obama’s federal government to the Muslim world (including apologist-in-chief Hussein Obama, himself) over some accidentally burned Korans. It’s embarrassing. And I’m tired of it. Aren’t you?

Where were the Islamic world’s apologies for 9/11, for Fort Hood, for the attempted Times Square massacre, for the 1993 WTC bombing, for the U.S.S. Cole, for TWA Flight 847 and Robert Dean Stethem, for William Buckley and Rich Higgins, for Cleo Noel and George Curtis Moore, for the Marines in the Beirut Barracks, for the Marines in the German disco, for Pan Am Flight 103, for Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, for the Khobar Towers, for Nick Berg, for Paul Johnson, for Daniel Pearl, for U.S. contractors burnt to a crisp and hung from a bridge in Fallujah, for the Navy SEALs who died in the shot-down helicopter? Crickets chirping . . . . But a ton of apologies out of us for what? For the burning of a book that has inspired 1.8 billion to hate us and quite a few of that number to try–and succeed–in killing us? Ridiculous. I don’t apologize. And they don’t speak for me. We saw the same thing with Bush when there was the story about the Korans flushed down the toilet . . . which, frankly, is an insult to the toilet.

The Islamic world would actually respect us–and fear us–more, if we deliberately burned Korans. Instead, we did it by accident–because Islamic terrorists defaced them in order to communicate jihadist plans on their pages. And we’re apologizing like there’s no tomorrow. Heck, the U.S. government hasn’t even apologized for slavery as much as it’s apologized to Muslims for Koran-burnings. (And there have been plenty of those slavery apologies.) Muslims, themselves, burn and destroy Korans. Saudi Sunnis even took Shi’ite Koran covers and cut them into sandals in a deliberate major insult to Shi’ites. Shi’ites do the same to Sunnis. And while we are supposed to be and should be at war with this religion that mass murdered 3,000 Americans 10.5 years ago and keeps killing more, we are apologizin’ and apologizin’. It’s disgusting. And they laugh at us. If we gave them a giant one finger salute and said, “TOUGH!” we’d actually get something done.

And, of course, how do Muslims react every time there is a whiff of anyone but themselves destroying a book that is nothing more than hateful, anti-Semitic, anti-Christian pieces of paper? They murder each other. They did it when that idiot from Florida with the Yosemite Sam mustache burned the Koran. And they did it yesterday after the story of these burned Korans. And, as we all know, they kill each other all the time even without the excuse of the burned, crappy book.

So, are you tired of the apologies? Do you think Mitt Romney’s administration wouldn’t issue the same apologies as Obama–and Bush before him? Think again. Had enough? Well, apparently not because even the GOP keeps giving us Islamo-ass kissers as sorry excuses for candidates and office-holders. And no one ever demands better. So we will never get anyone better.

We are grovelers to our enemy. We are enemies to our grovelers. As reader Raymond in DC wrote yesterday in the comments of another post, there is a Jewish saying that if one is compassionate to the cruel, in the end one will be cruel to those deserving of compassion.

The people of the Koran deserve no compassion from us. They’ve shown us nothing but cruelty.

And, yet, we keep apologizing to them. Did we apologize to the Nazis? Guess what? We’re doing that now every time we apologize to a single Muslim, let alone the collective bunch.

An apology is nothing you’ve ever heard -- nor will you ever–from them. The only “apology” they have is that they didn’t blow up or shoot up more Americans, Christians, and Jews.

How low is Obama prepared to bow?

Lubbock Online says when the President of the United States of America puts the wishes and beliefs of Islamic terrorists ahead of those of the American people and our National Security, that president and his advisors are not thinking logically. When that president consistently comes down on the side of our enemies, opposes our Military Allies, and ignores the laws that protect our military men and women, the problems created descend far below a simple lack of logical thinking.

It now appears that Commander in Chief Obama may actually allow the United States Military to bring those who supposedly burned the Korans in Afghanistan to trial. What possibly could be the charges against them? Would this not be an act of subjecting our military to the dictates of Sharia Law? Is our military certain the Afghan workers who supposedly found the burned Korans did not plant the evidence? How low is Obama prepared to bow to Islam?

Reuters reported on Thursday that NATO has agreed to put our military personnel on trial,

Afghanistan wants NATO to put on public trial those who burned copies of the Koran at a NATO base, President Hamid Karzai's office said on Thursday, after a third day of bloody protests over the incident.

It said NATO had agreed to a trial, but that could not be immediately confirmed.

Karzai had earlier accused a U.S. officer of "ignorantly" burning copies of the Koran, in an incident that has deepened anti-Western sentiment in a country NATO is trying to stabilize before foreign combat troops leave by the end of 2014.

Demonstrations have drawn thousands of angry Afghans to the streets, chanting "Death to America!" amid violence that has killed 11 people including two U.S. service personnel.

"NATO officials, in response to a request for the trial and punishment of the perpetrators ... promised this crime will [be] brought to court as soon as possible," Karzai's office said in a statement.

Barack Obama sent a letter to Karzai apologizing for the burning of the Korans, after Afghan laborers found charred copies while collecting rubbish at the sprawling Bagram air base.

Obama told Karzai the incident was not intentional.

The letter, which the White House said was a follow-up to a phone call earlier this week between the two leaders to discuss a "long-term partnership" between Washington and Kabul, was delivered to Karzai by U.S. Ambassador Ryan Crocker.

Karzai's office said in a statement Obama had promised to investigate those involved in the incident.

Karzai said the American officer had acted "out of ignorance and with poor understanding" of the Koran's importance, a presidential statement said.

An Iranian military commander stated that only burning the White House and hanging the US military commanders responsible for burning the Korans would satisfy the Muslim rage.

A top Iranian military commander said the US helplessness in the confrontation against Islam is the real cause underlying the burning of the Muslims’ Holy Book by American soldiers in Afghanistan, and stressed that nothing but burning the White House and hanging the US commanders responsible for this cowardly action can relieve the Muslims’ pain. “The US has committed such an ugly action and burnt Quran because of the heavy slap it has been given by Islam,” Commander of Iran’s Basij (volunteer) force Brigadier General Mohammad Reza Naqdi said on Saturday.

He stressed Muslims’ sensitivity to the crimes underway in Afghanistan by the US forces, and said Muslims do not accept the US apology, because it makes numerous military mistakes and then just asks for the Afghans’ apology, and this is not acceptable. “Nothing but burning the White House can relieve the wound of us, the Muslims, caused by the Burning of Quran in the US,” he underscored.

It is of interest and importance to recall that when the US Military burned copies of the Bible, neither Muslims nor Christians complained. CNN reported on May 20, 2009,

Military personnel threw away, and ultimately burned, confiscated Bibles that were printed in the two most common Afghan languages amid concern they would be used to try to convert Afghans, a Defense Department spokesman said Tuesday.

The unsolicited Bibles sent by a church in the United States were confiscated about a year ago at Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan because military rules forbid troops of any religion from proselytizing while deployed there, Lt. Col. Mark Wright said.

Such religious outreach can endanger American troops and civilians in the devoutly Muslim nation, Wright said.

"The decision was made that it was a 'force protection' measure to throw them away, because, if they did get out, it could be perceived by Afghans that the U.S. government or the U.S. military was trying to convert Muslims," Wright told CNN on Tuesday.

Troops at posts in war zones are required to burn their trash, Wright said.

We take notice when the Bible is referred to as “trash” to be burned by one of our own military officers. It continues to be of great concern that Barack Obama places far greater apparent importance on giving aid and comfort to Islamic terrorists than to protecting the safety and honor of the military men and women of the United States of America.

“The reason we’re apologizing is not because of politeness or showing respect,” Krauthammer replied. “A single apology would have done that. It’s the fear of violence. People don’t object if Mormons are mocked on Broadway, if Christian crucifixes are put in bottles of urine and displayed in a museum because the violence isn’t a factor. People are afraid. You do a cartoon of Muhammad and you get beheaded or shot. It’s a matter of fear. It’s not respect. One apology is correct. It shouldn’t have been done. Absolutely all of this stuff is cravenous.”

Top Iranian Commander: “Burn the White House… Hang the Commanders” to Relieve Pain Caused by Burning of Quran

A top Iranian military commander said the US helplessness in the confrontation against Islam is the real cause underlying the burning of the Muslims’ Holy Book by American soldiers in Afghanistan, and stressed that nothing but burning the White House and hanging the US commanders responsible for this cowardly action can relieve the Muslims’ pain.
       
“The US has committed such an ugly action and burnt Quran because of the heavy slap it has been given by Islam,”
Commander of Iran’s Basij (volunteer) force Brigadier General Mohammad Reza Naqdi said on Saturday.

He stressed Muslims’ sensitivity to the crimes underway in Afghanistan by the US forces, and said Muslims do not accept the US apology, because it makes numerous military mistakes and then just asks for the Afghans’ apology, and this is not acceptable.

“Nothing but burning the White House can relieve the wound of us, the Muslims, caused by the Burning of Quran in the US,” he underscored.

“Their apology can be accepted only by hanging their commanders; hanging their commanders means an apology,” he reiterated.

Obama has sent a letter to his Afghan counterpart Karzai, apologizing for the burning of copies of the Holy Quran.

Afghanistan: Devout Muslims respond to Obama's apology

Pamela Geller says this is who Obama is chasing as a "peace partner." They laugh at our clown-in-chief while slaughtering  with impunity.

Taliban's Response to Obama's Apology: 'Kill Them, Beat Them, Take Them as Prisoners' (hat tip Mara)

(CNSNews.com) – In the wake of Barack Obama sending a three-page letter to Afghan President Hamid Kharzai, apologizing for U.S. forces having mistakenly burned some Qur'ans at a U.S. air base in Afghanistan, the Taliban is calling on Muslims to kill Americans or beat them and take them as prisoners.

The call for violence against U.S. troops in Afghanistan came as Muslims in South Asia and elsewhere prepared for Friday prayers--a potentially volatile time.

Islamist groups in Pakistan, meanwhile, drummed up protests against the burning of the Qur’ans, with some leaders appealing for jihad against the United States.

Echoing incendiary calls by the Taliban for Muslims to react violently to the mishandling of the religious texts, militant leaders charged that the incident was a deliberate plot against Muslims.

Two U.S. troops and at least seven Afghans have been killed in three days of rioting in Afghanistan.

“We should not be satisfied with mere protests and empty slogans but the military bases of the invaders, their military convoys and their troops should become a target of our courageous attacks,” spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid said in a statement directed to Taliban fighters and the “zealous and faithful people of Afghanistan.”

“Kill them, beat them, take them as prisoners and teach them such a lesson that they never summon the courage to abuse the Holy Qur’an again,” he said.

Mujahid said the Taliban called on the world’s Muslims to condemn the incident, "both practically and verbally and back the legitimate struggle of the Muslim Afghans” against the “American aggressors.”

At least one demonstration was planned in Kabul on Friday, and the U.S. Embassy warned American citizens there may be more, possibly violent protests after the end of Friday prayers.

While President Hamid Karzai and Afghan government officials called for calm and encouraged provincial and religious leaders to do likewise, there was no comparable appeal from the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), a bloc of the world’s Muslim nations.

OIC Secretary-General Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu issued a statement condemning the Qur’an incident but saying nothing about the deadly reaction or the various groups’ calls for violence.

The OIC said Ihsanoglu described the incident at the Bagram military base as “a deplorable act of incitement and called on the concerned authorities to take swift and appropriate disciplinary action against those responsible.

Many now question Obama’s various abilities and motivations.  But one thing’s for sure: When he apologizes to world leaders Obama is the best there is. 

He’s not too bad at making excuses for a lousy economy, either.

The Washington Post is reporting that the apologizer-in-chief, Barack Obama, is apologizing again.

This time to to Afghans, for the burning of Qurans at a U.S. military base.  He tried to assuage rising anti-American sentiment as an Afghan soldier gunned down two American troops during another day of angry protests.

The U.S.-led military coalition says the Muslim holy books were sent to a garbage burn pit at Bagram Air Field and the case is under investigation. The explanation and multiple apologies from U.S. officials have yet to calm outrage over the incident, which has also heightened tension between international troops and their Afghan partners.

Thousands of protesters, some shouting "Long live Islam!" and "Death to America!" staged demonstrations across Afghanistan for a third day. Protesters climbed the walls of a U.S. base in the east, threw stones inside and adorned an outside wall with the Taliban’s trademark white flag.

At other sites, demonstrators burned tires or American flags. Afghan police and international troops fired guns in the air to disperse the crowds.

The protests sparked clashes with Afghan security forces that left at least five demonstrators dead. A Norwegian soldier was wounded by a hand grenade hurled into a coalition compound.

On Wednesday, six people died in protests in Kabul and three other provinces.

White House press secretary Jay Carney told reporters aboard Air Force One that Obama’s apology to Karzai was "appropriate given the sensitivity" of the issue. He said the apology was part of a three-page letter to the Afghan leader.

Tommy Vietor, a spokesman for the National Security Council at the White House, said Obama’s letter, which addressed issues being negotiated in the partnership document, was delivered by Ryan Crocker, the U.S. ambassador to Afghanistan. In the letter, Obama expressed "regret and apologies over the incident in which religious materials were unintentionally mishandled." Vietor said.

The statement said Karzai told the lawmakers that a U.S. officer responsible for the burning "didn’t understand" what he was doing and that the United States had "accepted the mistake of its officer."

The materials had been taken from a library at Parwan Detention Facility, which adjoins the base, because they contained extremist messages or inscriptions. Writing inside a Quran is forbidden in the Islamic faith, and it is unclear whether the handwritten messages were found in the holy book or other reading materials.

A military official said it appeared that detainees at the prison were exchanging messages by making notations in the texts.

A delegation of Afghan religious leaders, lawmakers and government representatives visited Bagram as part of the investigation. They issued a statement late Thursday calling for an end to protests and accused insurgents of infiltrating the gatherings to foment violence. They said they expected those responsible for the Quran burning to be prosecuted through the U.S. military court system.

Why hasn't Obama demanded apologies from Karzai for the killing of our troopers by his Afghans -- that we've armed and are paying.

The "committed Christian" continues to submit to Islam.
