Fighting for Mohammedans

The USA has now gone to war 6 times in the last 20 years to save Mohammedans.
Kuwait, Bosnia, Kosovo, Afghanistan, Iraq, and Libya.

Meanwhile, today's controversy is
Koran_burning and the ensuing rioting on the other side of the world:
US President Barack Obama denounced the act of burning a Koran but did not mention Jones by name.

"The desecration of any holy text, including the Koran, is an act of extreme intolerance and bigotry," Mr Obama said in a statement released by the White House.

"However, to attack and kill innocent people in response is outrageous, and an affront to human decency and dignity."
Most Christians would not call the Koran a "holy text".

The mock trial and execution was not an act of intolerance and bigotry either. It is completely reasonable for a religious preacher to explain why his religion is better than the alternatives. Terry Jones was apparently trying to make the point that Islam is not a religion of peace, and the response to Jones would seem to prove it.
