Would You Buy a Used Mosque From This Man?

A new serpent has appeared in the nest of vipers that is making its home in the crater of the toppled Twin Towers, among the remains of the 9/11 dead. This particular model citizen goes by the name of Imam (of course) Muhammad Musri.
The cast of hucksters and political minded holymen around the 9/11 Victory Mosque already included among others:
Apparently, Imam Muhammad Musri was inspired to interject himself in order to prevent Reverend Jones’ impending act of heresy.
No doubt you are holding your breath waiting to hear my opinion of burning the Koran. I think Ann Coulter almost nailed it, but not quite.
The reason not to burn Qurans is that it’s unkind — not to jihadists, but to Muslims who mean us no harm. The same goes for building a mosque at ground zero — in both cases, it’s not a question of anyone’s “rights,” it’s just a nasty thing to do.
I may be the only person on the right who doesn’t deplore Reverend Jones’ gesture. But then, I’ve known bra burnings and flag burnings, and have watched America, the founders, the flag, the Bible, God, Christ, Moses and Mary variously mocked and damned all my life. I’m just not that moved by burning a Koran. To normal decent American Muslims I say “welcome to my life.” And to the people that are going to riot in the streets about it, I say … hmmmm, actually I can’t say that on a family website.
Objectively, the Koran is simply an object that Jones bought in a store. It’s his property. So far as I’m concerned he can burn it, wear it as a hat, or pour milk and sugar on it and eat it for breakfast. I couldn’t possibly care less. Regarding the mosque however, I think that Coulter, champagne and roses be upon her, understates the case and is off the point a bit. It’s worse than a nasty thing to do, it’s also a propaganda goody for America’s enemies.
