Maybe Just a Down Payment on ‘Enough’

Now we’re making progress. After 5 days of telling us that President Obama’s apology for U.S. forces accidentally burning defaced Qu-rans in Afghanistan is not “enough,” an Islamic official has finally named what he believes might be enough. From Gateway Pundit:

The top Iranian military Commander today said, “Nothing but burning the White House can relieve the wound of us, the Muslims, caused by the Burning of Quran in the US… And hang the commanders.”
Fars News reported:

A top Iranian military commander said the US helplessness in the confrontation against Islam is the real cause underlying the burning of the Muslims’ Holy Book by American soldiers in Afghanistan, and stressed that nothing but burning the White House and hanging the US commanders responsible for this cowardly action can relieve the Muslims’ pain.

“The US has committed such an ugly action and burnt Quran because of the heavy slap it has been given by Islam,”
Commander of Iran’s Basij (volunteer) force Brigadier General Mohammad Reza Naqdi said on Saturday.

He stressed Muslims’ sensitivity to the crimes underway in Afghanistan by the US forces, and said Muslims do not accept the US apology, because it makes numerous military mistakes and then just asks for the Afghans’ apology, and this is not acceptable.

“Nothing but burning the White House can relieve the wound of us, the Muslims, caused by the Burning of Quran in the US,” he underscored.

“Their apology can be accepted only by hanging their commanders; hanging their commanders means an apology,” he reiterated.

Obama has sent a letter to his Afghan counterpart Karzai, apologizing for the burning of copies of the Holy Quran.

It is infuriating that our military has to wage war based on the double standards of islam. Certainly such an act as burning the qu'ran, whether intentional or accidental does not require an apology of any sort, least of which by the commanding officer. And for the president to apologize, why that's simply unfathomable at any level. Especially when no counter apologies are demanded by western leaders for the increasing atrocities foisted upon Christians worldwide.
