Smoking the Koran Causes "Backlash"

Sharia rules. America rates high on the sharia compliant scale of imam Rauf:

So much for freedom of expression in the land of the free:

The protestor who burned pages from the Koran outside a planned mosque near Ground Zero was fired from NJ Transit over the controversial act, sources and authorities said yesterday. Read more:

Queensland lawyer Alex Stewart smokes pages from the Koran and Bible, fanatical frenzy ensues….

  • Atheist smokes holy books on YouTube
  • Video slammed by offended religious leaders
  • Lawyer says “Bible smokes better than Koran”

A BRISBANE-based lawyer and atheist who videoed himself smoking what appeared to be joints made with pages from the Bible and the Koran expects to lose his job at a Queensland university. (Sheik reported: “Feelings Hurt” )

No doubt the Queensland University of Technology is upset about the prospect of all those enraged Christians rioting, burning tires and Alex Stewart in effigy, chanting “Death to Australia,” and all the rest — no, wait…

“Controversial Act”:  Derek Fenton was fired for burning pages of the Koran near Ground Zero on 9/11.

Our enemies are laughing their sorry asses off over so much cowardly caving in:

NJ Transit confirmed Fenton was fired but wouldn’t elaborate.

“Mr. Fenton’s public actions violated New Jersey Transit’s code of ethics,” an agency statement said. “NJ TRANSIT concluded that Mr. Fenton violated his trust as a state employee and therefore was dismissed.”

Several neighbors in Fenton’s Bloomingdale neighborhood stood up for his right to express himself with flames.

“Good for him for burning the Koran,” neighbor Jacqui Marquez, 40, said. “Everybody’s entitled to their opinion … by firing him, they’re sending a message that there’s no freedom of speech. They’re completely wrong for doing this.”

“He’s a family man,” neighbor Randy McConnell, 43, said. “He loves his kids and he loves trains. I don’t agree with what he did, but he shouldn’t lose his job over it. That’s his right.”

  1. ‘ as a state employee ‘

    That’s the frightening bit – the state doesn’t like your views so the state
    takes your livelihood away !

  2. I smell a groundhog. koran supposedly burnt, torn & smeared with allah in East Lansing, Michigan. Dirty deed discovered by youths playing basketball in the islamic center at 1:30 am (as you do).

    [The ELPD has been investigating the local Quran burning case since early Saturday when officers received a call from the parents of the young men who discovered the remnants of the Muslim holy book.

    According to the ELPD report, the incident occurred between 11 p.m. Friday and 1:30 a.m. Saturday while the young men who reported the incident were playing basketball in the center. Officers responded to the call but did not find anyone in the surrounding area.

    Saturday morning, officers returned to continue the investigation and to take the burnt Quran in for evidence, the report said. Police are working with the FBI’s Detroit office and the Ingham County Prosecutor’s Office to further the investigation, the ELPD reported.]

    So the police responded, but came back later to bag and tag the “evidence”?

  3. Islam is NOT a “Religion” and therefore has NO RIGHT to practice it.
    Interesting to note that in Sharia “Freedom of Religion” is expressly prohibited. One MUST be Muslim.
