Koran-burning pastor Terry Jones was mobbed by protesters as he made his way to the Arab International Festival. Scuffles broke out and six people were arrested as Jones walk down the street toward the festival with some of his supporters in Dearborn, Michigan. The controversial Florida Pastor Jones had intended to hold an anti-Islam rally and counter-protest against the festival. The event is the largest outdoor gathering of Arab-Americans in the U.S. Jones wore sunglasses, a bullet-proof vest and a t-shirt that read: 'Everything I ever needed to know about Islam I learned on 9-11.' He had led a rally...

There is no excuse for pushing and shoving the pastor, but he is looking for trouble, not truly serving God, with his little ventures into Dearborn.

He's lucky that's all that happened to him... so far.



And, you're right. Methinks he liked his taste of the limelight...:rolleyes:

If "intelligent, decent people" don't do anything then it's left to the ones who will.

As I keep telling my Democratic friends and family: If you will not take a stand against illegal immigration, mass immigration, and hostile cultural invasion then you are handing these issues over to the people who define themselves by them. If you insist on doing nothing, then when nationalists do something, you have no moral grounds to object.

At first, I thought that Jones was just grandstanding for publicity, but he was willing to put himself in the line of fire and the more that I hear about him, the less I believe the media caricature.

I particularly loved this photo. What kind of equality do you think you'll have under Sharia, young lady? Will you be treated as an equal of a man in court? In marriage? In employment? Will you even be allowed out of your home wearing a duffel bag without a male relative along to protect your "honor"?

I wish people would just ignore the guy, but he is making it difficult to do so. He is looking for trouble. The girl is expressing support for her neighbors, not advocating for the imposition of sharia law.

In Dearborn, the young lady has a far bigger chance of being arrested for DWB than she has of offending muslims who are adhering to Sharia law. The white people in Dearborn have no choice but to respect the arab population in their city, because that population has money, property and some political clout. They still don't want black people in their city. There's a long history of racism-just google the name Orville Hubbard and you'll see what I mean.


Sharia law does not rule in Dearborn, even if about a third of the population are muslims.

Don't kid yourself that Arabs are somehow less racist than anyone else. Arabs are notoriously racist, and don't particularly care for black people.

But the people who she is supporting include a great many who do want Sharia imposed. That Sharia doesn't rule in Dearborn today doesn't mean that it won't tomorrow, or that there aren't those who are working towards it right now.

Even if I was willing to concede your mistaken claim that Obama was elected president for the sole reason that he is black, which I'm not, what does that have to do with the history of racism in Dearborn or of the history of the arab american population of Dearborn? Do you know anything about either of those situations?

Jesus Christ! A completely unqualified BLACK man is President. He was elected by WHITE people because 100% of the Black vote won't elect anyone President unless 4 or 5 times as many Whites than Black vote for him. What more do you fucking want?

I have told you over and over: If you won't oppose this invasion and the one at the southern border, then it will be left to the people who will.

I said a reliable source. CBS News presented forged National Guard documents in order to try to shift the 2004 election away from Bush. I give them minimal credence, and until you admit that Van Jones is a communist and a racist, I give you none at all.

Yes, but I consider you an unreliable source. Willful dishonesty does that.

Ultimately, I don't particularly care about Jones' take on Judaism, as it's less toxic than yours. As Nova pointed out, it wasn't Jews that mobbed him, and he hasn't been burning Old Testaments, Torahs or copies of the Talmud. He isn't going after Judaism as a threat to America, but he does recognize that Islamic jihadis are a threat.

Now, why don't you go back to this thread (http://www.conservativeunderground.com/forum505/showthread.php?t=41412) and pretend that Nicholas Elliot didn't plan and attempt a mass murder, that Mumia Abu-Jamal isn't a cop-killer and racist, and that Van Jones isn't a racist and communist. You won't make any sense or say anything honest there, either, but at least the comic relief will make up for it. Here, you're just as obtuse and dishonest, by you're just not that funny.

It's safe to guess he's not big on Gay people either. We have fundy street evangelists at Pride every year, and they stand there telling us we're going to Hell.

The difference is that neither they nor we are an invasive culture- they are Americans and we are Americans.

The difference is that fundies say that we will submit to what they believe to be God's will and condemnation WHEN we die. The Muslims say that we will submit to what they believe to be God's will OR die.

As long as he breaks no legitimate laws, nothing that Jones does is at all relevant to the issue. The entire issue is the actions of the exotic Muslims in this country and the fact that this is happening when they are only a couple of hundred thousand strong. We have also seen what happens when they think they have reached the magic number as they have in London, Malmo, Amsterdam, Rome, Paris, and Copenhagen.

No, you argue that there is no difference between them. Jones doesn't protest at synagogues, or burn Torahs. He may not care for Judaism, but he recognizes that Islam is a threat to America in a way that Judaism is not. You don't see any difference and continually make moral equivalencies between Judaism, Christianity and Islam.


see, here's the difference, MUSLIMS beat the shit out of him and would kill him given the chance. JEWS would not and simply ignore his dumbass.

And, he pretty much ignores ours, which is all that I ask from people of other faiths or lack of same.

Nobody is denying that he's eccentric. I'm simply saying that the media has exaggerated his eccentricities because they want him to be the villain of the piece, and that given the media's (and your) track record with the truth, that I was willing to give him the benefit of any doubt before I'd believe the media (or you). When you are willing to give Jones or Glenn Beck the same insane lattitudes that you give to Van Jones or Mumia Abu-Jamal, I'll start taking you seriously. Until then, selective outrage is just a function of your agenda, and I have no interest in advancing that.

No, in this case, he really is the good guy (Just as Glenn Beck was when he outed Van Jones as a bigot and communist), because he has couragously stood up to those who would force Sharia on us. Burning a Qur'an and then going to an Arab festival takes guts.

Oh yeah there is racism. Black people are some of the biggest and most blatant bigots on the fucking planet. But Blacks are at most 12-15% of the population and we have a Black President. Your squeals of racism seem hilarious funny in light of that. But of course Black people have always been funny, They always made those big bug eyes in the Three Stooges shorts and all. That always made me laugh and laugh. And then they cry about racism when they get a completely incompetent Black President. THAT is funny. That makes me laugh every time I hear it. Racism, pffft!

Dearborn. Historically and current. A mayor named Orville Hubbard was an open racist, and the Dearborn Police would arrest black people who were on the streets of the city after sundown. Black people were not allowed in Dearborn city parks until the 1990s-the city claimed parks were only for city residents, but were only enforcing that policy against black visitors. These are two clear cut situations of racism in Dearborn.

Personal discussions with people, which aren't verifiable facts:
Most of my black coworkers avoid driving through Dearborn, because they don't like getting pulled over and harrassed by cops. One of my friends won't even go to Henry Ford Museum/Greenfield Village because of her fear of Dearborn cops and their history of racism.
