AFGHANISTAN: DEVOUT MUSLIMS RESPOND TO OBAMA'S APOLOGY: 'KILL THEM, BEAT THEM, TAKE THEM AS PRISONERS'
This is who Obama os chasing as a "peace partner." They laugh at our clown-in-chief while slaughtering with impunity.
Taliban's Response to Obama's Apology: 'Kill Them, Beat Them, Take Them as Prisoners' (hat tip Mara)(CNSNews.com) – In the wake of Presidentsending a three-page letter to Afghan President Hamid Kharzai, apologizing for U.S. forces having mistakenly burned some Qur'ans at a U.S. air base in , the Taliban is calling on Muslims to kill Americans or beat them and take them as prisoners.The call for violence against U.S. troops in Afghanistan came as Muslims in South Asia and elsewhere prepared for Friday prayers--a potentially volatile time.Islamist groups in Pakistan, meanwhile, drummed up protests against the burning of the Qur’ans, with some leaders appealing for jihad against the.Echoing incendiary calls by the Taliban for Muslims to react violently to the mishandling of the religious texts, militant leaders charged that the incident was a deliberate plot against Muslims.Two U.S. troops and at least seven Afghans have been killed in three days of rioting in Afghanistan.“We should not be satisfied with mere protests and empty slogans but the military bases of the invaders, their military convoys and their troops should become a target of our courageous attacks,” spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid said in a statementto Taliban fighters and the “zealous and faithful people of Afghanistan.”“Kill them, beat them, take them as prisoners and teach them such a lesson that they never summon the courage to abuse the Holy Qur’an again,” he said.Mujahid said the Taliban called on the world’s Muslims to condemn the incident, "both practically and verbally and back the legitimate struggle of the Muslim Afghans” against the “American aggressors.”At least one demonstration was planned in Kabul on Friday, and the U.S. Embassy warned Americanthere may be more, possibly violent protests after the end of Friday prayers.While President Hamid Karzai and Afghan government officials called for calm and encouraged provincial and religious leaders to do likewise, there was no comparable appeal from the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), a bloc of the world’s Muslim nations.OIC Secretary-General Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu issued a statement condemning the Qur’an incident but saying nothing about the deadly reaction or the various groups’ calls for violence.
The OIC said Ihsanoglu described the incident at the Bagram military base as “a deplorable act of incitement and called on the concerned authorities to take swift and appropriate disciplinary action against those responsible.
