US President Barack Obama has quite rightly condemned an American pastor’s burning of the Koran, after violent protests.
The desecration of any holy text, including the Koran, is an act of extreme intolerance and bigotry.
It led to the death of 17 in Afghanistan. Obviously he is correct in stating this however we must see the hypocrisy in his statement. He preaches for the right of all religions to worship safely, while simultaneously US forces kill and maim soldiers and civilians including the children who worship a different god to him.
If we accept that the Pastor is guilty of incitement to murder, surely we must see the acts that Obama is guilty of. War crimes?
