While you have probably already read articles about how the First Amendment and our soldiers will be placed in jeopardy if Pastor Terry Jones and his congregation decide to burn a bunch of Korans tomorrow, you probably have not read many that support such an initiative. Well, I say burn, baby, burn!
First and foremost, no one should ever cower to the threats and demands of terrorists. If Jones decides not to burn the Koran, Americans will be seen as submitting to the Islamists. As submitters, we will be viewed as a bunch of weak-minded cowards. This in many ways is a culture war and if you don’t understand the culture of the Islamists, you won’t understand what will result if Jones backs down.
