Ten UN Workers Slaughtered in Afghanistan Attack Over Koran Burning in US

The Religion of Peace strikes again…

Ten United Nations workers were murdered today by demonstrators protesting the burning of the Koran in the United States.
AFP reported:

Ten foreign UN workers were killed on Friday in an attack on the UN headquarters in the northern Afghan city of Mazar-i-Sharif by demonstrators protesting at the burning of the Koran by a US pastor, police told AFP.

“Ten (UN) people have been killed by the protesters (…) All the killed are foreigners,” police spokesman Lal Mohammad Ahmadzai said.

A spokesman for the UN mission in Kabul, Don McNorton, said: “We are aware of an incident in our Mazar office, we are currently working to ascertain all the facts.”

Afghanistan had condemned the “disrespectful and abhorrent” burning of the Koran by evangelical preacher Pastor Wayne Sapp in a Florida church, calling it an effort to incite tension between religions.

President Hamid Karzai called on the United States to bring those responsible for the burning of the Islamic holy book on March 21 to justice.

Sapp set light to a Koran under the supervision of Terry Jones, who last year drew condemnation over his aborted plan to burn a pile of the holy books to mark the anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attacks.

Jones cancelled his plans under enormous pressure from world leaders including US President Barack Obama, but the mere threat to burn the Muslim holy book sparked large protests in Afghanistan, where the UN and aid groups warned that civilians and aid workers in the country could be killed if the pastor went ahead.

Una Moore at the UN Dispatch says it is time for the UN to leave Afghanistan.

    Please, muselmaniacs, continue to push us. Please. Because, you know, there will be a point where we won’t allow you to push us anymore. So far it’s you against us, because you hate us, all of us 5+ billion infidels. Pray to your false god that it will never be us against you, when we, the 5+ billion infidels on this planet, strike back. Because then, you followers of this “rotten corpse that is poisoning our lives” (as Kemal Atatürk called islam) are as good as dead.

    @AuntieMadder – my thoughts exactly. How long before he’s brought up on “crimes against humanity” which would allow an international court to indict and convict him?

    Hey, Afghanis, how about you all stop the “disrespectful and abhorrent” murders over something insignificant?

    Karzai – he already has been brought to justice: he exercised his 1st amendment right to free speech; not much more justice than that. Oh, by the way, STFU and MYOFB! You got enough crap in your own country, don’t tell us how to run ours!

    “..where the UN and aid groups warned that civilians and aid workers in the country could be killed if the pastor went ahead.” – soooo, you all saw the video on YouTube, why didn’t you remove your UN representatives and “aid” groups from the volatile areas?! Seems you all at the UN were the negligent ones, not the idiots in Florida.

    FWIW, my opinion on the koran burning: While I don’t see what this accomplished other than poking the middle east in the eye (which has some merit on its own, I suppose), the reaction has been standard islamic WAAAAYYY over the top exaggeration. That said, these guys are free to burn whatever books they own, and say what they like in this regard. I’m tired of the “people of the world” telling us what we can and can’t do or say! I especially despise when these same arguments come from people IN OUR government. There’s nothing that is, in my opinion, more anti-constitutional than to limit free speech under the first amendment.

  • Andreas K.

    PB-in-AL, this is the standard islamic reaction.

    Remember, islam has sharia law, and under sharia law this applies:

    · There is no freedom of religion
    · There is no freedom of speech
    · There is no freedom of thought
    · There is no freedom of artistic expression
    · There is no freedom of the press
    · There is no equality of peoples-a non-Muslim, a Kafir, is never equal to a Muslim
    · There are no equal rights for women
    · Women can be beaten
    · A non-Muslim cannot bear arms
    · There is no equal protection under Sharia for different classes of people. Justice is dualistic, with one set of laws for Muslim males and different laws for women and non-Muslims.
    · Our Constitution is a man-made document of ignorance, jahiliyah, that must submit to Sharia
    · There is no democracy, since that means that a non-Muslim is equal to a Muslim
    · Non-Muslims are dhimmis, third-class citizens
    · There is no Golden Rule
    · There is no critical thought
    · All governments must be ruled by Sharia law

    Unlike common law, Sharia is not interpretive, nor can it be changed.

    Also, technically killing innocent people is outlawed even in islam. But it depends on the definition of “innocent.” Under islamic law, people who refuse to follow allah (aka “infidels”) are not innocent, they can be killed. Some “leaders” even say they MUST be killed, since they commit the worst possible crime under islamic law: they refuse to follow allah. This crime is worse than rape or murder.

  • Rock

    Well it could have been worse, imagine if you can if Islam was a religion of hate. 🙁

  • President Hamid Karzai called on the United States to bring those responsible for the burning of the Islamic holy book on March 21 to justice.

    Sorry, Hamid, but there’s this little thing here called the 1st Amendment, free speech. We are not a theocracy, do not follow the brutal and archaic shari’a, and do not give a crap if you’re offended. In fact, we know the Religion of Perpetual Outrage will be offended by any and everything we Infidels do. So suck it up there, cupcake.

    On another note, they were UN employees. Do you think anyone at the UN wiil get a raging clue and realize the members of the Religion of Perpetual Outrage are complete loony tunes, nuts, bonkers, off their rockers? Nah, didn’t think so either.

    Talk about ‘collective punishment’.Talk about biting the hand that feeds you.

    It appears that if you follow Islam and your fury has been aroused, any ole scapegoat will do.

    This ideology makes less sense to me as each day passes. This sort of ‘thinking’ just isn’t based on anything rational.At this point tho, I would say it is just as irrational to keep going there, just as irrational to believe you can actually help some of these people.

    I think everyone knows by now what to expect.

    By the way, what is this “justice” Karzai is speaking of ? Sorry we are no longer neolithic(by hundreds of years, really) and folks around here have laws to protect them from vigilantes.

    I would feel differently about this is Muslims had burned the bible in the past… oh, wait…

    Evangelical preachers Wayne Sapp and Terry Jones need to consider the consequences of their ‘Christian’ action before Satan’s Muslim swine. How much does their self-righteous ‘Christian’ feel good justify the pain and anguish of the slaughtered?

    I mean really if nothing else we could get a news report like “Villagers came out of the suchamustafa mosque following Friday afternoon services and in a blind rage proceeded to slaughter UN staff at the Mazar office.”

    Pull the troops out. There is no hope for a people that follow the teachings of the Koran – not a drop of hope. Obama had no problem with ordering the burning of the Bibles sent into Afghanistan and muslims have no problem burning churches, Christians, and Bibles, but we be damned if one Koran is burned. Sheite to all of them.

  • Richard Aubrey

    The primary advantage of this sacrifice is that it might–low percentage probability but more than zero–convince as many as one Western liberal that Islam might have its nastier moments.

  • we need to burn, and other wise desecrate, korans on a regular, publicized basis until such time as the head bangers run out of energy to get excited over such trivia.

    if that doesn’t w*rk, kill them in self defense when they attack.

    either way, the problem is solved.

  • Guy in Ohio

    Wonder how long it will be before it’s a crime to burn a Koran in the U.S.? I’m guessing an executive order is on the way …

    The Muslim terrorists got what they wanted, what did humanity get out of it?

    ……………………………

    Humanity needs to REASSERT the UNIVERSAL JUSTICE of 1) verify the guilty FIRST 2) Do NOT spread the guilt of ONE to the MANY INNOCENTS 3) BE SLOW TO ANGER and QUICK TO FORGIVE.

    We were caught in and were part of a humanitarian emergency resulting from a sudden rampaging of Berber-Arab Muslims against Black Muslims which was based on 100% RUMORS that turned out to be FALSE. Hundreds of INNOCENT Black Muslims were LYNCHED on the streets on their way to work – no warning. In the end, over 100,000 people were deported, stripped of all they owned, sometimes including the clothes on their backs. Had the discipline of verifying the TRUTH FIRST, before MURDERING, a LOT of people would be ALIVE today, A LOT of suffering would not have occured.

    WHY are you grotesquely enabling blatent injustice of excusing killers for murdering INNOCENTS based on a patently INADEQUATE EXCUSE of some guy somewhere far AWAY BURNED A book?

    By the WORD of the LORD GOD ALMIGHTY:
    It is NOT a SIN to BURN some book. It is a SIN to MURDER the INNOCENT.

    There is NO EXCUSE to TRY to HELP the MURDERERS’ CYNICAL TACTIC to transfer what is on THEIR HEADS for their vicious attacks to someone else who hasn’t hurt ANYONE.

    A friend of my daughter – a very sweet middle-aged lady who is a mother and UN staffer from Sri Lanka was just transferred to Afghanistan and has been sending my daughter photos of how nice it was – OUR TROOPS to THANK. I pray she wasn’t one of those INNOCENT U.N. office workers SLAUGHTERED by MURDERERS. ALL those U.N. staffers were just regular folks doing regular ho-hum jobs of accounting, finance, budgets, communications.

    Afghanistan has had the ONLY shot at self-determination and stability it’s experienced sicne the Soviets rolled over the borders in invasion, with the arrival of America troops.

    The Democrats are all talking “humanitarian intervention” but GIVE AWAY THE GAME by NOT applying their sobby-righteous argument to a glaring case of humanitarian NEED in Afghanistan, as they talk “draw-down” and “withdrawal timeline.”
    Afghanistan’s economy was destroyed, the terrorists constantly target CIVILIANS. It’s a NOBLE task to PROTECT them and give them the SECURITY STABILITY they NEED to REBUILD.

    These PEOPLE were MURDERED by KILLERS who will FABRICATE excuses to undermine ANYTHING they want booted OUT so they can rampage over the weak. If one is willign to MURDER, then LYING is EASY.

    What’s truly DISGUSTING is the people who want to enable that LIE in hopes of enabling their own political agenda.

    were stuck in Muslim rampages against other Mulsims based on a rumor that turned otu to be false.

    Global Jihadists Are Elated by Revolts, Cleric Says

    “Doesn’t the West realize how the jihadi work would just take off as soon as the regimes of the Gulf start crumbling?” Anwar Awlaki

    Imam Anwar Awlaki, the go-to imam the the NY TImes, the Washinton Post and the media went to (the “moderate” imam) for all things Islam right after 911 (as did the 911 hijackers for spiritual guidance) has addressed the revolts in a video message posted on the Web.

    It also needs pointing out that Awlaki is a guest on Al-Jazeera where he is described as a religious scholar. And Awlaki has defended, lauded Al Jazeera journalists.

    “Islamists” – the most ridiculous I have ever heard.

    Islamists Are Elated by Revolts, Cleric Says NY TIMES
    WASHINGTON — Anwar al-Awlaki, the Yemeni-American cleric who is a top propagandist for Al Qaeda, broke his silence on the uprisings in the Arab world on Wednesday, claiming that Islamist extremists had gleefully watched the success of protest movements against governments they had long despised.
    Anti-government protesters marching in the central Yemeni city of Ibb. President Ali Abdullah Saleh has proposed to stay in office until elections are held.

    “The mujahedeen around the world are going through a moment of elation,” Mr. Awlaki wrote in a new issue of the English-language Qaeda magazine Inspire, “and I wonder whether the West is aware of the upsurge of mujahedeen activity in Egypt, Tunisia, Libya, Yemen, Arabia, Algeria and Morocco?”

    Mr. Awlaki’s four-page essay, titled “The Tsunami of Change,” is among a handful of statements by Al Qaeda’s leaders countering the common view among Western analysts that the terrorist network looks irrelevant at a time of change unprecedented in the modern Middle East. In ousting the rulers of Tunisia and Egypt and threatening other Arab leaders, a core of secular-leaning demonstrators have called for democracy and generally avoided violence — all at odds with Al Qaeda’s creed as it tries to instill rigid Islamist rule across the world.

    In an audio statement this month, the Egyptian deputy to Osama bin Laden, Ayman al-Zawahri, pleaded with the Egyptians who toppled President Hosni Mubarak to shun the United States, reject democracy and embrace Islam as the answer to their problems. Arguing that Al Qaeda deserved some indirect credit for the uprisings, he said the United States’ willingness to drop its support for Mr. Mubarak and other authoritarian leaders was a “direct result” of the Sept. 11 attacks.

    Mr. Awlaki’s essay is more colloquial and confident, asserting that the momentous change in Arab countries left Western leaders “confused, worried, and unhappy for the departure of some of its closest and most reliable friends.”

    He quotes American commentators who describe the uprisings as a refutation of Al Qaeda, including Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton’s assertion last month that “the success of peaceful protests has discredited the extremists.”

    Quite a Contrast

    On May-13-1981 Mehmet Ali Ağca shot Pope John Paul II four times nearly killing him. The Pope survived the attack and in 1983 visited Ağca in prison where he forgave him. The Pope was also in touch with Ağca’s family over the years, meeting his mother in 1987 and his brother a decade later.

    In 1988 Salman Rushdie’s book ‘The Santanic Verses’ was published and was considered by many muslims to be insulting to islam. On Feb-14-1989 Ayatollah Khomeini issued a death sentence fatwa calling on muslims to kill Salman Rushdie. Rushdie was forced into hiding for several years and survived several assassination attempts such as a 1989 bombing in a London hotel in which the bomb prematurely detonated destroying two floors of the hotel and killing the would-be assassin Mustafa Mahmoud Mazeh. (By the way, there’s a shrine in a Tehran cemetery for Mazeh that says Martyred in London, 3 August 1989). There were also several bombings and attempted bombings of bookstores throughout England. And there were also several violent attacks against people associated with the book, such as; Hitoshi Igarashi, the Japanese translator, who was stabbed to death; Ettore Capriolo, the Italian translator, who was stabbed but survived; William Nygaard, the Norweigan publisher, was shot but survived; Aziz Nesin, the Turkish translator, who was the intended target in the events that led to the Sivas massacre in July 1993, which resulted in the deaths of 37 people.

    Hey! The focus isn’t the burning of a Koran, that’s minor and even trivial. The focus is the murder of 10 innocent people who are trying to help these animals. Don’t give me this crap that we have to tippy toe around these Satanic beasts so they don’t get mad.

    I will not consider in the LEAST how what I do is viewed by those stone age demons. And neither should anyone else. How dare we judge the actions of two silly men who burned a book as somehow linked to or equivalent to murder. Like these Muslim beasts need an excuse to kill?? Listen to their speeches and find one paragraph or even sentence that does not use one of these words: kill, revenge, murder, war, death, etc. That’s all they know.

    #67 wolf t-“Next time burn a muslim. They don’t get particularly upset with killing each other!”

    Didn’t Willie Nelson sing a song like that? Save a quran, burn a muslim…or something?

    Sorry, had to say it, though I don’t want anyone burned.

    Also remember that Karzai has been batting his eyelashes at the Taliban already.

    Once the coalition is out of this sh*thole, Karzai will be Osama’s new bed bunny.

    Question to any geologists at Gateway, “Would nuclear air bursts have impact on the oil reserves in the Middle East?”

    If no the problem solves itself.

    Desecration Double Standard

    October 2000, muslims destroy the site believed to be Joseph’s Tomb in the West Bank.

    March 2001, muslims blow-up the 2000 year old ‘Buddhas of Bamiyan’ statues in Afghanistan.

    April 2002, muslim gunmen take refuge in the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem and trash it.

    April 2011 muslims kill 10 people in Afghanistan because a koran was burned in America.

  • if they didn’t kill because of the bible burning they woiuld have killed for some other reason. this kind of thing happens on a daily basis in muslim countries.

  • yes we have to tip toe around the muslims. i just saw a picture of our female soldiers wearing head scarfes on nice deb. oh what brave leaders we have.

    I say we have planes dropping burning korans on them 24/7.
    Oh, and blow up mecca.

    Any type of over exaggerated condemnation of Pastor Sapp is rewarding this type of Islamic violence. The entire iindustrialzied world should condemn these violent acts by Afganis.

    I think most of your comments just demonstrate ignorance. Extremist fundamentalists are on all sides, some statements proudly stated by some of the individuals just goes to show hatred, bigotry and ignorance is rife…. Wot next? Lets put them in camps and gas them? Hey, don’t we bloody learn? Extremism just breeds extremism… anybody who talks of the tripe here is a preacher of hate!

    I’d prefer 2 C-5A’s make a midnight drop of 50,000 Lbs of pig droppings and blood on Mecca, with a promise of more at other undisclosed sites until the goat herders figure out it could get a lot worse

    Bullsh!t. Posting comments is not equal to murdering people. Burning a Quran or a million Qurans is not equal to murdering people. Take your moral relativism and get lost.

    ……………….

    Lost my ignorance twenty years ago when Muslims were killing and lynching other Muslims while calling them “our Muslim brothers.”

    The ONLY people who offered life-saving humanitarian aid to the 10,000 beaten and bloodied Black Muslims huddled in a mosque without water or food were CHRISTIANS and aid agencies long before established by CHRISTIANS and AMERICANS.

    We haven’t done ANYTHING wrong. Why should any one of us apologize? The Muslims who were helped very much appreciated it and praised God for providing nice, hard-working people who put themselves in very difficult and dangerous circumstances to help them.

  • pst314

    Shah Khan proves once again that Muslims will “express regret” over Muslim violence against non-Muslims ONLY as part of a stronger condemnation of non-Muslims who are angry about Muslim barbarism.
    There are supposed to be about a billion Muslims in the world. If you collected all the truly civilized Muslims in once place, you could fill a small town.

  • Joanne

    And they beheaded two of the eleven killed – yah, aren’t they a lovely bunch of coconuts. Kick all practicing muslims out. You can’t follow the teachings of the Koran and turn out any different.

    Obama keeps emboldening the radicals by telling everyone about ‘drawdown” and “withdrawal.”

    Didn’t Terry commit an act of defiance against a totalitarian ideology? Aren’t we supposed to laud such actions? He harmed nobody. He broke no laws. Had he burned a copy of Mein Kampf or a swastika in the 30s would he have been condemned for offending Germans?

    I am conflicted on the matter. The easy way out is to condemn both sides. Maybe Terry has a point.

    ^^^^^^^^^
    The Qur’an contains MORE anti-Semetic references than Mein Kampf…still conflicted?

  • for all you people the muslims never said islam was the religion of peace. that was american tass that said that after 9-11-2001. if was a concerted effort by the media to defuse the anger americans felt after the attacks. as usual they lied.

When war comes to your back yard… what are you gonna say… oh dear, we did not expect that? Go get a life, wake up and smell the roses. The only enemies one makes are the enemies one creates ….. mess with 1.5 billion muslims and take the consequences… don’t mess with them, and they won’t mess with you… doh!!!!! Infact are you all that dumb????

    all these stupid homosexual, hash smoking, men. get out of there and let them kill eac other. they don’t care about gov change, just an excuse to get out and raise hell. when you smoke their dope, your’re bound to act crazy and want to kill.

    homosexual dopeheads. i pity their women and children, they are the ones who suffer the most. all the middle east, what hell holes. women are for procreating, and kept hidden, their children are raped and molested by their own fathers and freinds, then they grow up start smoking the hash drugs and act like this, a vicious cycle that never ends.
