Egyptian Lawmaker: Muslim Countries Must Protest Koran Burnings By Breaking Ties with US


Muslim demonstrators display placards during a rally to protest against a Koran-burning incident in Afghanistan, outside the U.S. embassy in Kuala Lumpur February 24, 2012. U.S. President Barack Obama apologized on Thursday for the burning of copies of the Islam’s holy book on a US base in Afghanistan, an incident that has triggered far more outcry than another shocking incident: the emergence of a video last month showing Marines urinating on the corpses of what appear to be dead Taliban fighters.

A senior Egyptian Parliamentarian called on Arab countries to protest the Bagram koran burnings by breaking ties with the United States.
Fars News reported:

A senior Egyptian legislator called on the Arab countries to voice their protest at the desecration of the Holy Quran at a US base in Afghanistan by cutting relations with Washington.

“The US militaries’ burning of Quran is an insult to Islam and Muslims and a new position should be adopted against the US administration which has done nothing but apologizing,” Ahmad Abdul-Al told FNA on Tuesday.

He called on all parliaments of the Arab states to cut relations with Washington until the culprits of this action are tried and Muslims’ rights are restored.

In relevant remarks, a prominent Iranian Islamist organization had earlier lashed out at the Muslim world’s silence on the burning of the Muslims’ Holy Book by American soldiers in Afghanistan, and urged the Muslim Ummah to show a strong and extensive reaction to the sacrilege of Islamic values.

“The Muslim world’s silence on the US soldiers (provocative) act in Afghanistan is not justifiable,” the International Union of Unified Ummah (Community) said in a statement on Monday, and condemned the desecration of the Muslims’ holy Book.

    Great, who needs them. Gee! Something good is coming out of the Middle East for a change.

    Gee, riots are considered silence in Islam. I wonder how real silence and acquiescence would be classified by some Mullah. Apostasy?

    I wonder if this idiot still expects the US to give “protection” money to Egypt despite severing relations.

  • moron

    But don’t we need ties with savages? For the sake of diversity? Maybe Barry will offer them a free tuition, room and board college education, preferably in the Boston/NYC/San Francisco areas.

    “…Breaking Ties with US.”

    Sounds like we just saved billions in foreign aid.
    What is the downside?

  • http://redc1c4.livejournal.com/ redc1c4

    they break ties with us, we divert their foreign aid to Israel…

    win/win

  • Hoser

    The Egyptians can piss up a rope.I will miss that cranky old Museum curator guy and his show on Egyptian artifacts but it would be a fair trade off in saving the billions we give to them now and them cutting ties with us.

    The downside would be that those billions will either be funneled into the unions or bogus, unsustainable green companies that belong to friends and families of our current regime.

    On second thought just keep giving the money to the Egyptians.

    We really ought to burn more Korans. There’s just no reason they should be so shocked and outraged, except they’ve been coddled too much. Or, of course, unless it’s all just for show.

    I really wish some senior person would publicly ask what is the proper way to destroy copies of the Koran that have been desecrated by terrorists. We’ve been told they should be burned.

  • Brandon In Baton Rouge

    All future “foreign aid” payments to any country who insists on breaking ties with us should be made in live ordinance. The method of delivery is up to the mission commander.

    I welcome a complete and final break with the people that honor Mohammed who stood ankle deep in blood whose Barbary pirates used the bastinado and were known to even crucify hostages.

    We have nothing to gain from the Muslim world.

    Beat me to it.

    I think they’re our second biggest beneficiary in the world, after Israel, at around $1.5B in 2010.
    But the good news is that number has been falling each year for the past 10 years.

    Good! They can break ties with our military protection and money also!

    It would save us a lot of money to not have to prop up these nations… but the filp side of the coin is that once you let them out of your influence bad things can happen.

    Obama and

    [In 1933 the German establishment thought it could use Hitler to restore a modicum of order to the confused and confusing Weimar Republic. In fact, Hitler did strengthen the German establishment, but not exactly in the way the bankers and businessmen had wanted; and now, fifty years later, it is clear who was using whom. Nevertheless, the Western World did not complain in 1933 because Hitler, though a fascist and a totalitarian, was seen, like countless American puppet dictators today, as someone who leaves the established order in place.]

    Paul agree..

    [Ron Paul proposed to put a bunch of Soros funded think tank experts in charge of dismantling the US military. Think about that for a moment. And then think about it again. Ron Paul supporters can see conspiracies in a glass of water, can they see anything wrong with this picture? Can they see anything wrong with having a man from a group that was investigated for its Communist ties in the driver’s seat on national defense?]

    Oh please, please, please can we break ties with Muslim countries like Egypt??? Please!!!

    If we can it will save us billions of dollars a year because we are sending Egypt a billion dollars a year in foreign aid!! Foreign aid! Like they need our foreign aid! Let’s cut off all foreign aid to all these countries because we’re already buying their oil at a steep price, and we’re sending them our tax payers money and what money our businesses are making, for what? Tell me again, why are we sending a rich country like Egypt “aid”? Was it for Mubarric military and government operations? I know we were sending him millions in military equipment every year. He did have some good pilots who flew F-16’s.

    Obama to Cut Health Benefits for Active, Retired Military

    [Significantly, the plan calls for increases on premiums, eventually rising
    to more than three times the current levels. As an example, a retired
    Army colonel with a family currently paying $460 a year for healthcare
    will pay $2,048.

    But more concerning is the military’s fear that the rift between uniform
    and ununiformed personnel could undermine recruiting efforts and
    retention.

    “We shouldn’t ask our military to pay our bills when we aren’t willing to
    impose a similar hardship on the rest of the population,” Rep. Howard
    “Buck” McKeon, chairman of the House Armed Services Committee and
    a Republican from California, said in a statement to the Beacon. “We
    can’t keep asking those who have given so much to give that much more.”

    Administration officials reportedly told Congress that part of the goal is
    to force retirees to reduce their involvement in Tricare and eventually
    use alternatives under Obamacare.]

    warned this, and much more, was coming several times, and
    many moons ago, but what does a crazy old lady know..

  • tj

    Since we’ve leaving Afghanistan, Iraq, and cutting ties with Egypt… we won’t need all those Korans that we bought…

    We could sell them very cheap… but that would be disrespectful… and might lower the worldwide price of Korans… we’d be accused of “Koran dumping”..

    The only honorable thing to do…

    burn them!

    Today, in the White House, there are three members of
    the Muslim Brotherhood that influence Obama’s policy.

    They want to break ties, fine. I want to break Mecca.
    Oh by the way, next time we burn Korans, might I suggest that bacon grease makes a wonderful accelerant. It leaves nothing but ash in its wake.

    “we have absolutely nothing to apologize for” ~ Zuhdi Jasser

    Islam And Islamism: The New York Times’ Misinformation Campaign

    [Just last week, in fact, in yet another story filled with misinformation and paradox, the New York Times — that newspaper which evidently viewed the plans of a radical Muslim to bomb the U.S. Capitol as being less than “fit to print” — has confused Islam with Islamism, inadvertently defending a school of the religion even the majority of American Muslims reject. They should know better by now.

    According to the Times, a new organization in Chicago, Gain Peace, has launched an advertising campaign aimed at defending Islam against attacks. In itself, this is fully understandable and would be laudable — were it not for the fact that among the schools of Islam Gain Peace defends is one which stands against American democratic values. Worse, the organization the Times cites (again) on the issue — and who supports the Gain Peace project — is the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). In case anyone has forgotten (and evidently the Times editors have), CAIR has been named an “unindicted co-conspirator” in the largest terrorism funding case in American history; the FBI no longer recognizes the group as a legitimate representative of American Muslims, and the U.S. government overall, including our liberal Democratic president, has banned it from involvement with government policy and investigations.

    That’s pretty powerful stuff. It’s certainly powerful enough that the New York Times should think twice about using CAIR as its resource (and its only resource) when speaking about Islam in America.

    But it doesn’t. And so when reporting on the proposed expulsion of CAIR from Illinois’ “leading immigrant support group” due to its ties to Hamas, the Times sympathetically suggests its agreement with CAIR’s assessment of the situation: “a descent into anti-Muslim hysteria.”

    No, it’s not.]

    God, how i wish he were President.. *sigh*

    let’s save $3 billion a year in taxpayer money and stop sending it to the ungrateful egyptians

  • ibrahim

    hey hey hey!!!! if you want to break ties with the muslim world as some are saying, u can kiss your oil support from saudi arabia goodbye.
    other than that, you can keep your pathetic 1.3 billion.

    and that amounts too

    74 lousy Egyptian pounds per person per year.

    The US does not provide us with money that we egyptians need, it provides it to keep friendly ties between the two countries and keep the peace with Israel.

    Mind you I am an Orthodox Christian, but also an Egyptian, for all those who don’t know and keep giving Generalized Judgement
