Dumber than dirt:
TheÂ Logan’s Warning blog has revealed that a Californian woman has launched a Facebook campaign calledÂ ‘Wear a Hijab Day’ as a mark of solidarity with Muslims on 9/11. The organiser claims to have been moved to launch the campaign by the planned Qur’an burning and already 6,000 people have signed up to wear the hijab on 9/11. She makes the false equation of a dislike of Islam with Nazism. Will she convert? (H/T Durotrigan)
Pastor Terry Jones told reporters tonight that his planned bonfire is back on after he was “lied to” by a local imam. Jones said the imam told him the Ground Zero Victory Mosque would be moved… even though it is not being moved. Gateway: Koranic Incineration
Ammanwhore, PR machine for Ground Zero imam Rauf:
Iman Feisal Abdul Rauf chose ABC’s Christiane Amanpour to spend “several hours” with on Thursday in New York City, and just as she did back onÂ the August 22 This Week when she featured Rauf’s wife and an ally, she again served as his public relations agent, forwarding his claims without challenge. After passing along his denial of any deal to move his project, Amanpour gushingly relayed meaningless blather about his great concern:Â “The imam went on to tell me that this whole issue is so sensitive because he has to really take care of sensitivities here in the United States and abroad.”

The looney left and the primitive right agree:
A message from Robert Spencer:
Our rally is at 3PM Saturday at Park Place and West Broadway. See you there.
AsÂ toÂ those conservatives admonishing Pastor JonesÂ for puttingÂ our civiliansÂ andÂ soldiers in danger for offending muslims by burningÂ the koran, why stopÂ there? It’s likely allÂ the talkÂ againstÂ the ground zero mosqueÂ is also perceived by muslimsÂ aroundÂ theÂ world asÂ anti-muslim hatred. PerhapsÂ that’sÂ puttingÂ our soldiers inÂ further danger? ItÂ may even be theÂ reasonÂ there’s been an increase in American casualties in Afghanistan in recent months. SoÂ why not just change your minds andÂ comeÂ outÂ publicly inÂ supportÂ ofÂ the ground zero mosque? ThatÂ has as much logic.
AsÂ for General Patraeus,Â thisÂ isÂ theÂ same genuis whoÂ proclaimed Jews livingÂ andÂ building in JerusalemÂ put American soldiers inÂ danger. SoÂ why not advocate dismantling JewishÂ communities in eastern JerusalemÂ and JudeaÂ and Samaria? PatraeusÂ is justÂ another useless Pentagon bureaucrat really responsible for puttingÂ our soldiers in danger becauseÂ theyÂ are more concernedÂ withÂ winningÂ heartsÂ and mindsÂ and placating muslim sensitivitiesÂ thanÂ winningÂ the war. Case in pointÂ areÂ the CIA agentsÂ whoÂ were blown up inÂ their tent because they didn’tÂ wantÂ to insultÂ the feelingsÂ of muslims by friskingÂ an informantÂ whoÂ turnedÂ outÂ to be workingÂ against us. SensitivityÂ toward muslim feelingsÂ isÂ preciselyÂ whatÂ is gettingÂ our people killed, not burning korans orÂ anyÂ other perceived insult.
IÂ happenÂ toÂ haveÂ had the misfortuneÂ ofÂ coming acrossÂ partÂ of Monica CrowleyÂ filling inÂ for Bill O’ ReillyÂ last night. She not only admonished Pastor Jones as an anti-muslim bigot for going ahead with burning the koran but also because he made t-shirts which proclaimed “islam is of the devil”. How exactly would Crowley describe an ideology which sanctions beheadings, female genital mutilation, “honor” murders, stonings, murdering unbelievers etc.? Then she had on this little leftist priest who I recognized as someoneÂ who defendedÂ the jihad flotilla back in June on Hannity. IÂ didn’t bother to watchÂ theÂ restÂ ofÂ theÂ show as I am nowÂ completely disgusted with the putrid Crowley.
IÂ thinkÂ some ofÂ her brother-in-law’s liberal stupidityÂ has rubbedÂ off on her. She’s as muchÂ an appeaser asÂ any ofÂ the liberalsÂ sheÂ condemns. DoesÂ sheÂ really believeÂ the jihadistsÂ perceiveÂ her asÂ anyÂ lessÂ of anÂ anti-muslim bigot as Jones? AfterÂ all,Â she opposesÂ the ground zeroÂ islamicÂ supremacist mosque.
The bottom lineÂ isÂ thatÂ we cannot allowÂ threats of violence to dictateÂ whatÂ weÂ sayÂ and howÂ we behave. Pastor Jones cannotÂ give in now becauseÂ the barbariansÂ will seeÂ it asÂ aÂ victory. TheyÂ will knowÂ thatÂ theirÂ threatsÂ ofÂ violence frightenedÂ us into submissionÂ andÂ thereÂ will be no endÂ to violence and threats of violence to stopÂ any criticismÂ ofÂ islamÂ orÂ anything elseÂ theyÂ don’t like.
