Protests Across Afghanistan

leave a comment »


The BBC reports protests across Afghanistan over the now-cancelled plans to burn Korans on the anniversary of 9/11.  Can anyone still tell me with a straight face that all the hysteria generated over this “ground-zero mosque” nonsense hasn’t endangered our troops in Afghanistan???  Even though Terry Jones has “suspended” his planned Koran burning, too much damage has already been done.  I’m sure some ingrates will still burn Korans tomorrow, and the media will likely oblige those idiots with international coverage.

Want to strike a blow against the Taliban and Al Qaeda on the eve of 9/11?  If so, then support charities like the Central Asia Institute, Arghand and Beyond the 11th.  Education, employment and empowerment of women in Afghanistan and other Muslim nations – those are the cruise missiles that will destroy Islamic fundamentalism.
