Terry Jones to Protest Youcef Nadarkhani's Execution by Burning Qurans

I guess we're about to find out whether Muslims really care about the Qur'an. If they're as sensitive as they claim to be, they'll have to let Youcef Nadarkhani live. Otherwise, Terry Jones is going to reply with a big pile of burned Qur'ans.

CHRISTIAN POST--The organization Stand Up America Now, led and founded by Dr. Terry Jones, revealed on Feb. 22 that it will burn Qurans and images of the prophet Muhammad in protest of the Islamic religion, should Iranian Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani be executed for his Christian faith.

The American Center for Law and Justice announced on Tuesday, Feb 21 that the Iranian courts may have issued an execution order for Nadarkhani. Nadarkhani, who has been a pastor at a number of house churches in Iran for the past 10 years, has been imprisoned since Oct. 2009, originally for protesting, but those changes were later controversially changed to apostasy and attempting to evangelize Muslims.

According to the Stand Up America Now website, the organization focuses on many social issues, with a special emphasis on standing up for Christian minorities persecuted in Islamic dominated countries.

On Feb. 23, 2012, Stand Up America Now, based in Gainesville, Fla., protested Islamic Awareness Month at the University of Florida, also located in Gainesville.

The organization's president and founder, Dr. Terry Jones, describes the planned burning of the Quran as a form of protest which would "obviously get Islam's attention," saying that Christians "cannot just stand by and do nothing."

"We have very little that we can do as a Christian community to protest the inhumane activities of Islam," Jones told The Christian Post.

"It's a type of protest to let the government know we are totally disgusted with their type of Shariah, with their activities. In fact, with the activities of Islam over the past 1,400 years," he added. (Read more.)

Burning Qu'rans will accomplish nothing except make Terry Jones look silly. He has an obsession with burning the Qu'rans and the media loves it.

If you read the article David linked to make sure to read the comments. It's interesting to note how the morally retarded lieberals condemn Jones for threatening to burn a Quran, but have NOTHING to say about WHY he's burning it, or the fact an Iranian man is to be killed for converting to Christianity.

If they kill him, they are now sentencing the Quran to death aswell.

I think it's a brilliant idea. I'm not for burning books, but "punishment" ought to be offered for these kind of inhumane actions. Life is more precious than any book.

What hurts the most is on the link where David got the article from so called christians are saying all we need to do is pray and arrange meetings with muslims to talk about this not by burning qurans. This is why no one takes us seriously and islam will continue to bully us around, Im sure muslims just laugh at us when the see comments like that. Christians need to realize christians all around the world are being killed and its about time we stand up for them.

I understand the concern that many Christians have the wrong idea when they think that Muslims can be reasonably dialogued with or that some compromise can be arrived at between Christianity and Islam.

"For what have the things of Christ to do with Baal; what has light in common with darkness?"

But I fear that some other Christians have it wrong when they suggest retaliation of any sort. Persecution is to come, and although it has already begun even more is to be poured out on the Church of Christ. Was Jesus not reviled and persecuted? He was shamefully put to death but even as He died He prayed for mercy on the souls of those who sentenced Him to death.

All the world is being judged in these last days and if this happens to the Chosen of Christ what do you think will happen to the ones who have not obeyed Him? But vengeance is the Lord's and His alone. We only are to watch, carry on in the works given to us and look to the Coming of Christ. And if we are killed while serving Our Lord, then Glory to God in Jesus' Name for ours will be a great reward.

NEVER retaliate!

God Bless.

First, I must make it clear that I believe that no one is to be persecuted for his/her belief.

But, I stumbled across this article which says that Youcef Nadarkhani actually adhere to a non-trinitarian, Jesus Only beliefs.

Islam only respects superior force. Reason and logic have no place in Islam.

I think this is a brilliant idea!

Muslims do not understand reason or logic. Now lets see if book burning is equal to a human life. They are backwards and immoral. So lets see if they realize the consequences of their actions!

Iconodule said...

As much as I hate book burnings, Im starting to think this actually might be the only possible responce. If they truely love the quran and their prophet they might actually react to this and not execute the man, Or it will go even worse and more people will be killed and persecuted because "they are offended" not that IM saying Terry Jones would be responsible, clearly he wouldn't, it would be hte responsiblity of the muslims and the mulsims alone for reacting in such a manner.

Oh this situation is just begging to cartoonized:

Dirty bearded sword-wielding mullahs holding a blindfolded Youcef, stage right.

Terry Jones, foreground stage left, holding a Koran.

Jones: "Let him go or the book gets it!"

Next panel Jones has a lit match and the mullahs drop their swords and run.

The little Iranian President is acting as if the whole world has been conquered for Islam and that all non-Muslims are under dhimmitude. He is acting as if any defiance by non-Muslim (like criticizing Islam, burning Qur'ans, etc.) means any non-Muslims can be punished, abused, even murdered because the dhimmitude contract (of "protection") has been broken. It is a plan to take the world hostage, and no one should be in any way be accepting of that scenario!

The last several times the Muslim caliphates took it for granted that non-Muslims were conquered, held and abused as captives and sex slaves, plundered by jizya (50 percent of wealth), and made to feel themselves subdued, there were Crusades to free those non-Muslims.

I respect Pastor Terry Jones. He understands the threat of Islam and how to respond to it. Not only should we burn Qurans, mock the Prophet and speak out against the hypocrisy and duality of Islam, but we should put Islam on trial in a world court, for crimes against humanity!

Muslims shouldn't be allowed to live in arrogant denial of the evil legacy of Islam! It's time Muslims face the ugly truth of over 270 million dead and still counting, from Islamic jihad. We are at war with Islam, whether we want it or not! Muslim is NOT a race of people!

Islam is an evil, dualistic, radical political ideology, with an agenda of global domination, demanding ALL SUBMIT. Islam is the eternal, self declared enemy of the "unbelievers". Fundamentally, all Islamic doctrine is a jihadi training course and an eternal written declaration of war, against ALL non-Muslims, FOREVER!

There is no such thing as "Moderate" or "Muslim-lite", ALL Muslims are at the very least, obedient appeasers and enablers, in submission to Islam or more like, 'jihadi-lite'.
