No More Dhimmitude

Andrew McCarthy lays into General Petraeus' cringing apologetic plea to the Afghans over the recent Koran burning in Florida.  There is no reason whatsoever to apologize to anyone for the legal political actions of any American.  To do so only diminishes America and emboldens our enemies. 

Whatever one's opinion about burning a Koran, remember that Muslims burn Bibles, Torahs and Hindu scriptures on a daily basis, not to mention burning churches and murdering Christians, Jews and anyone else whom Muslims deem to have insulted Islam in any manner. 

McCarthy finishes with three simple and common sense steps that need to be taken to reverse the influx of Muslim immigrants into North America.

As always, Mark leaves nothing left to say regarding Sen. Lindsey Graham — though I am tempted to suggest that maybe the country would have been better off if he hadn’t exercised his First Amendment right to offer help beefing up the Libyan regime when he was a special guest in Qaddafi’s tent a few months back.

I would instead like to draw attention to the repugnant statement issued by General David Petraeus and NATO Ambassador Mark Sedwill:

KABUL, Afghanistan (April 3, 2011) – In view of the events of recent days, we feel it is important on behalf of ISAF [i.e., the International Security Assistance Force] and NATO members in Afghanistan to reiterate our condemnation of any disrespect to the Holy Qur’an and the Muslim faith. We condemn, in particular, the action of an individual in the United States who recently burned the Holy Qur’an.

We also offer condolences to the families of all those injured and killed in violence which occurred in the wake of the burning of the Holy Qur’an.

We further hope the Afghan people understand that the actions of a small number of individuals, who have been extremely disrespectful to the Holy Qur’an, are not representative of any of the countries of the international community who are in Afghanistan to help the Afghan people.
