Radical Islamic Headbanger:
“It’s a violation of Christianity. It’s a violation of Judaism. It’s a violation of Hindu. It’s a violation of every major faith in the nation and in the world.” Â Read More Â»

Muslims, Christians and Jews â€” all faiths calling out for people to stand up and do something about Pastor Terry Jones’ visit on Friday. Jones is planning an appearance in front of the Islamic Center of America in Dearborn.
Several Christians and Muslims are coming together and planning peaceful demonstrations leading up to the event. They’re calling theirs “I Am American”.
“There has been a man who has planned a trip to Dearborn to harm and hurt our relationship that we have here in this city and this region with Muslims,” said Rev. Charles Williams II with Historic King Solomon Baptist Church.
“He burns the Koran. Indeed it is an insult against Christianity, against Jesus because the Koran mentions Jesus for more than 124 times,” said Imam Sayed Hassam Al-Qazwini.
Security will be tight on Friday in and around the Islamic center. Counter protests against Pastor Jones include an Episcopalian church holding a demonstration against “Islam-a-phobia”, as they call it. Their main messenger, they believe, is Pastor Jones himself.
“It’s un-American for Pastor Jones to provoke and to try to polarize our brothers and sisters as less than American,” Rowe said.
Dr. Sayed Mustafa Al-Qazwini, the founder and Director of the Islamic Educational Center of Orange County:
In one of Â his speeches, Al-Qazwini matter-of-factly states, “Before Islam, there were the idol worshippers, the Christians and the Jews.”
In an October 2004Â speech to mark the beginning of Ramadhan, Al-Qazwini described how Judaism and Christianity are lower forms of humanity than Islam, Judaism being the lowest.
In his 1999 book, “Invitation to Islam” Al-Qazwini wrote: “Since all the Judeo-Christian-Islamic prophets were sent sequentially, the question arises as to why Judaism, Christianity, and Islam now exist as separate religions. The answer is that the followers of these religions, particularly Judaism and Christianity, corrupted the original teachings given to them and ended up making sects of their own rather than following the pure word of G-d.”
