I have copied this from the link in Jitspring's post covering the same subject, (burning Bibles) to make it known that the burning of the Bibles in Afghanistan in the You Tube video I posted above took place in 2008 when George W. Bush was US president and not when Barack Obama was president.
UPDATE: I hate to spoil the fun of the many commentators who have gleefully pointed out that the actual confiscation of the Bibles (and hence, presumably, the burning) took place in 2008, on the watch of Geroge W. Bush, not Barack Obama. The story broke in May 2009, and I failed to register the fact that it referred to an earlier event. I apologize for that error; but I also note that it changes the point of the column not one whit. Although I greatly admired George W. Bush personally, I always thought — and several times wrote — that his Islamophila (“Islam means peace,” remember that?) was disastrously misplaced. Obama has merely upped the ante, preposterously making a fight against criticizing or “stereotyping” Islam a prominent part of his regime. When it comes to his coddling treatment of Islam, Obama is like Bush, only worse, much worse, as I’ve often had occasion to remark in this space and elsewhere. The point remains, in the words of that witty and frightening video I link to:
1. “You don’t burn the Koran, because if you do, Muslims might go on a killing spree.”
2 “You do burn the Bible, because if you don’t, Muslims might go on a killing spree.”
