What else is new: Muslim initiates “Burn the Stars and Stripes Day”
By Michelle Malkin • September 9, 2010 10:29 AM

In retaliation for wackadoodle pastor Terry Jones’s Burn a Koran Day on 9/11, a British Muslim activist has called for an international “Burn the Stars and Stripes Day.”

A radical Islamic activist and lawyer in the U.K. has called on Muslims worldwide to burn U.S. flags outside American embassies on Sept. 11, a “direct retaliation” against a Florida church’s plan to burn Qurans on the same day.

Anjem Choudary, former leader of the banned hardline Islamic group Islam4UK, told CBS News in London he was calling for, “an international burn the Stars and Stripes day” on the anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

Choudary, who regularly organizes small demonstrations in Britain calling for the implementation of Islamic law, was the first public figure — and a likely one — to call for retaliation against Gainesville, Fla. Reverend Terry Jones’ plans to burn at least 100 Qurans.
Choudary’s co-religionists have already gotten a jump start:

Hundreds of angry Afghans burned an American flag and chanted “Death to the Christians” on Thursday to protest plans by a small American church to torch copies of the Muslim holy book on the anniversary of the Sept. 11 terror attacks.

Local officials in Mahmud Raqi, the capital of the Kapisa province some 100 kilometers (60 miles) northeast of Kabul, estimated that up to 4,000 people took part in the protest. But NATO spokesman James Judge said the protest numbered between 500 to 700 people.
Yawn. Every day is a Western flag-burning day somewhere in the Muslim world for every reason under the sun (see here here here here here and here, for starters).

Koran-burning isn’t the real “provocation.” Or Mohammed cartoons. As I’ve said many times over the years, the mere existence of infidels is what provokes and inflames the Religion of Perpetual Outrage. Retaliating against Koran-burners or targeting cartoonists is a lingering pretext to demonstrate that centuries-old, Koran-inspired hatred. If it isn’t cartoons, it’s always something else. From fresco rage to book rage to film rage to beauty pageant rage to Koran-dropping rage to cartoon rage to Pope rage, to ceramic Mohammed bobblehead rage to teddy bear rage to Burger King ice cream cone rage to blasphemous soccer ball rage, it never ends.

They never forget and they never forgive. Which is why we must never submit.

Fun fact about Burn the Stars and Stripes Day organizer and “I want to see the flag of Allah flying over Downing Street” sharia instigator Anjem Choudary. He’s the very same Religion of Peace practitioner who convened the Danish Embassy protest in London where his fellow worshipers held up these signs:

Hartford City Council to Start Meeting With Islamic Prayer
(Read WP posts from Warner Todd Huston) | (Read MT posts from Warner Todd Huston) | rssIn a move sure to see some controversy, the city council of Hartford, Connecticut has decided to start off its city council meetings with a Muslim prayer. An email from the city says they are doing this as “an act of solidarity with our Muslim brothers and sisters.”

The email from the city invokes the supposed “anti-Islam events” sweeping the country. "One of the goals of the Council is to give a voice to the many diverse peoples of the City, which is especially important given the recent anti-Islam events throughout the country," it says.

There is more explaining from the council:


On Facebook, Council Minority Leader Luis Cotto wrote: "We start every single council meeting with a prayer. 99% of the prayers are Christian based, and in three years I recall one Rabbi coming through."

Were I a member of that council I’d have voted no just because Islam is not a religion fit for a democratic government to celebrate. Islam is an oppressor’s religion, not a democrat’s religion. On the other hand, Luis Cotto’s sentiment is reasonable if you assume Islam to be a religion worthy of recognition. Especially if you are a politician that has a Muslim community that is desirous of a Muslim prayer starting off a city council meeting – that is democracy, after all.

But democracy is not why the council is doing this. They are doing this for the wrong reason, that of pretending to stand opposed to all these “anti-Islam events” sweeping the country. They are doing this for PCism and not because their constituents demanded it.

The fact is there is no wave of “anti-Islam events” surging through the United States. Granted there is more disgruntled talk against Islam, but there are few incidents of actual anti-Islam discrimination happening anywhere in the country.

In fact, the only real “event” going on is the one near Ground Zero as Islamic interlopers attempt to insert themselves into a situation in which they aren’t wanted because their people are the ones responsible for the deaths of thousands nearby. This stirred “event” is of the Muslim’s making, not anyone else’s.

Does it sound counter intuitive to say there are no “anti-Islam events” going on around the country? In actuality it isn’t. We have but to check the FBI’s hate crime statistics to see this fact born out. The FBI shows that it is far more likely that you’ll be discriminated against if you are Jewish then if you’re a Muslim.


The last year that the FBI has released full data for hate crimes is 2008, but it shows that hate crimes against Jews far out number those against Muslims.

FBI Hate Crime Statistics: Religious bias


Of the 1,732 victims of anti-religious hate crimes:

•66.1 percent were targeted because of an offender’s anti-Jewish bias.

•7.5 percent were victims because of an anti-Islamic bias.

•5.1 percent were victims because of an anti-Catholic bias.

•3.6 percent were victims because of an anti-Protestant bias.

•0.8 percent were targeted because of an anti-Atheist/Agnostic bias.

•2.8 percent were victims because of a bias against other religions (anti-other religion).

•4.0 percent were victims because of a bias against groups of individuals of varying religions (anti-multiple religions, group).


But let’s face reality, here. As I said, there is a lot of disgruntled talk among Americans in general against Islam. This is only natural due to the provocations Muslims have indulged. America didn’t just wake up one day and decide to hate Islam. Islamists have for 50 years been doing their best to provoke that hate. They started the ball rolling by blowing people up, cutting off people’s heads, stoning women, hanging gays, destroying world art treasures, killing American soldiers, “honor” killing children, and generally making a hazard of themselves. Then they have the gall to say WE are the ones in the wrong? Points to them for blatant arrogance, I guess.

Going back to the Hartford City Council, then, their actions end up actually feeding into the very thing they are claiming to want to remedy. They claim there is all this anti-Islam fever going on in the USA, but the stats just don’t show it. The council’s ballyhooing of such sentiment does more to promote that anti-Islam sentiment than it does to combat it simply by feeding into the false claim that it is pervasive.

In the end what is far more likely than anything else is that we have a few left-wing politicians that want to get their names in the national news so that they can puff their chests and claim to be the most “tolerant” people on earth. And in that, I guess I just helped them do it (well, except that I exposed their attempt).
