Obama Official Visits Virginia Mosque to Apologize for Koran Burning

It’s an Obama world…
This radical administration doesn’t think twice about attacking and smearing the Catholic Church in America but made a special trip to a Virginia mosque this weekend to apologize for korans that were destroyed after they were defiled by Muslim extremists in an Afghan jail.

Dr. Peter Lavoy, acting assistant secretary of the defense for Asia and Pacific security affairs, speaks to Washington-area Muslims at the All Dulles Area Muslim Society (ADAMS), as Imam Mohamed Magid, Executive Director of ADAMS, center and ADAMS board member Rizwan Jaka, left, listen Feb. 24, 2012, in Sterling, Va.

My FOX New York reported:

A Defense Department official visited a Virginia mosque Friday to reiterate the White House’s apologies for the burning of Korans at a US military base in Afghanistan, pledging that those responsible will be held “appropriately accountable.”

Peter Lavoy, acting assistant secretary of defense for Asian and Pacific security affairs, attended services at the ADAMS Center in Sterling, Va., and told the congregation he was there to express his “sincere regret” on behalf of the Department of Defense for the incident.

On Monday, coalition forces at Bagram Air Field brought a truckload of Islamic holy books from a detention facility to an incinerator after the detainees allegedly used the texts to pass secrets and what were described as “extremist” messages to one another.

Afghans stepped in to rescue the books, though some were already burned. The incident, viewed as an affront to Muslims, sparked widespread protests, resulting in the deaths of 24 people in four days of violence. Two US troops were shot and killed by an Afghan soldier at a base in Nangarhar Province Thursday.

Lavoy said Friday that the holy books were burned “unknowingly and improperly” and that the military “neglected, out of ignorance, long-established, correct procedures for handling religious materials.”

“I know that apologies are never enough and do not erase this incident,” he said, adding, “We will hold people appropriately accountable.”

    This morning, my koran caught fire and I felt so strongly compelled to put it out, I dunked it in my toilet several times.

    Whew! So glad I avoided another burnt koran controversy!

    UGLY TRAITOR. Please listen to this audio of Mark Levin from Friday Febrary 24th.


    Please go to the 92:00 mark toward the end.

    Obama’s put members of the Muslim Brotherhood into DHS and the State Department. He’s working for them, and the Weathermen. They both are very prominent in Chicago. I’m amazed with the world on fire, and the country in extreme danger, he is still allowed to get away with this. March 1, Sheriff Arpaio will be releasing the results of his investigation into Zero’s background. I believe he’s going to say that his biological father is Malcolm X. Obama’s not even related to Obama Sr. It’s a big lie, and those that were supposed to protect the country and us, didn’t.

    Obama set up the Navy Seals for murder. He did this as sort of a peace offering to the Muslim World, after he allegedly got Bin Laden, which who knows if that’s even true. He didn’t have a problem with the gory photos of Ghadaffi being all over the internet, but not Bin Laden. He’s a fraud. My fear is he’s going to set up more soldiers for death. Don’t believe it? Would you have believed 9/11 was going to happen if someone told you.

    Neville Chamberlain never did anything this weak. Respect for the office of the President does not require people to do everything you are ordered to do no matter what. Show some self respect and put your RESIGNATION before obeying an order to humiliate America this badly.

    Democrats Funded by Islamists

    [“While brave young Virginia men and women are risking their lives to fight
    terrorists in Iraq and Afghanistan, Connolly, Moran and Kaine are yucking it
    up with them and slapping each other on the back over at the Marriott,”
    charged VAST Chairman James Lafferty.

    He noted that the three politicians’ campaign war chests are
    heavily funded by radical Islamists who support the mosque.

    “Look at their Federal Election Commission reports,” Lafferty said. “These
    spineless politicians are owned and operated by the radical Islamists and
    their sinister front groups.”

    AIFD Brief: MPAC/ISNA counterterrorism video deceptive

    [What do the imams in the video actually say? What does the video
    not say that it should have said? Who are these imams and their
    organizations and who and what ideologies do they represent?

    Our American Islamic Forum for Democracy (AIFD) has provided a
    complete transcript of the MPAC 5 minute video online. Watch the
    video and read the entire transcript. What they say and do not
    say will become far more clear with this analysis.]

    “Muslim Brotherhood” has infiltrated Obama Administration

    Islamist-allied operatives appointed by Obama are undermining
    U.S. security policy – explains counter-Intelligence expert, Prof.
    Clare Lopez. Aimed at co-opting Americas foreign policy in the
    Middle East, a network including well-known American diplomats,
    congressional representatives, figures from academia and the
    think tank world – with ties to the clerical regime in Tehran – is
    directing the Obama Administration’s policy towards the Islamic
    Republic of Iran and the Middle East.

    From Seth:

    “It seems to me that Obama–educated as a Muslim as a child in Indonesia, the son, step-son, grandson, and great grandson of Muslims–and according to Muslim religious law, custom, and tradition, therefore, a Muslim– . . . .”

    Yes, but Obama is the son of Malcolm X (the “big secret”), so not sure of the grandson, great grandson . . .

    “(Obama) has given us every possible signal, has sent up every red flare in his arsenal, and done everything but run the green flag of Islam up the flagpole at the White House, to very concretely demonstrate to us–by his words and his actions– the fact that he is a Muslim, and cares far more for his Muslim brothers and the cause of Islam than he does for the citizens of the U.S. and the United States of America, for whom his disdain is barely concealed.”

    100% true, and very well said. Thank you.

    Planning for Islamic caliphate to begin


    hah, don’t make me laugh, it started back in the 7th century..

    only problem is, even though Islamists have slaughtered more Muslims
    than all others groups combined, the duped Muslim masses don’t know
    any better, ergo, follow, as do the Marxists by any other name, like the
    ignorant sheeple they truly are.. :-(

    if any of you take time to do anything, i sincerely implore you to listen,
    learn, and live accordingly, as we are under attack from within.. most,
    including Muslims, just don’t know it yet, and we can only hope & pray \Catholics/Christians and Jews are finally waking up.. ..*sigh*

    Part 3: 19:15 mark

    Clare Lopez:

    “war against apostates is carried out not to force them to
    accept islam, but to enforce islamic law and maintain order”

    Barack Obama:

    “Hitler .. someone who leaves the established order in place.”

    told you that was at the “crux” of Obama’s ideology
    many many moons ago, ie: and a bit more here.. :-(

    Rather than apologizing, the president should remind muslims that burning korans may not be acceptable to them, but murdering our citizens anywhere in the world is against US law, a law we will enforce if they do not.

    We should announce that, to condition muslims to freedom of religion and freedom of speech, the US government will conduct a weekly Koran burning on the Mall as a demonstration of our right to God given rights. Any muslim who objects would have the right to return to the tender mercies of Iran or Saudi Arabia.

    We should immediately stop issuing visas to citizens of any islamic nation without a thorough background investigation of at least one year. Once in the US they will each be charged a fee to pay for their daily interviews with a parole officer.

    We should prohibit women (and muslin men) from wearing burkas, abayas, jiibabs and other apparel designed to oppress women or evade capture by the police.

    We should immediately close any muslim school whose classrooms discriminate based upon gender, race, religion, sexual preference or love of rap music.

    We should require mosques to conduct call to prayer by electronic means such as cell phones, internet or text message rather that subjecting communities to arabic yodeling by an ancient rag head on a loudspeaker. (I did not know that rag head was two words?)

    Any violence brought about as retaliation for the above will be dealt with under the organized crime statutes (RICO Act).

    Just one more thing. When you look at islamic attire, why is it always available in plus sizes? What are Plus sizes?
