Koran and Obama burned - Global War fatigue

Well.  Pastor Fundamentalist H. A**hole went ahead and burned the Koran in Florida a few days ago. He and his congregation went and pissed on a belief symbol of over a billion people on this planet.  Talk about dissing, showing disrespect, to your neighbors! Not very kosher and or "Christian".

Dozens of people are dead in Afghanistan and hundreds hurt and the white racist good mister pastor is safe on American shores in his swamp trailer trash church in Florica preaching his white - “Christian” hate (an oxymoron – emphasis on the word moron). 

His congregation stood around, had a trial of the Muslim Book and decided that it was of Satan.  And with like any good medieval mindset, they burned the book, just like good Christians have been doing to heretics for centuries.  The same thing the Romans did to the Christian heretics etc.  And on and on back into history.

First of all, this printed book shit started in the Renaissance/Reformation era in the west.  This worshiping ink on paper is idolatry of sorts for fundamentalist of all faiths.  

Whether as a Biblist or as a Koranist, it is still book and or word worship – a thing, not a person, or the living breath of God.  It is like a lab specimen preserved in formaldehyde.  It is a poor substitute for real humanity and a real God in real time.  Whatever.

I use the Koran spelling here instead of Quran.  I am perhaps disrespecting Muslims with this spelling and pronunciation. Tough! But I have this information fatigue thing in this age of communication which is more noise than a learning experience.  I am tired of being politically correct.  Who invented this PC bullsh*t anyway?

I learned the word Koran in my youth.  Koran stays in my mind as the Muslim holy book.  Peking stays Peking and is not Beijing and Bombay stays Bombay and is not Mumbai. I am an old dog.  Know all the tricks necessary for survival.  Am not in the mood to learn or stomach any new current topic of the day/Spin. Etc. Period. Sorry.

But putting the book aside, whatever book it happens to be, the book is merely a symbol of the culture, waving whatever idol is sacred locally.

When it come right down to it, culture is verbal and immediate.  These c*nt pastors and mullahs are just stirring up their own redneck culture up against whatever they choose to be against.  They can jump up and down like monkeys in Florida or in Afghanistan.

The Koran burning is America is more a statement against a Black President with a Muslim ancestry than it is about what anything the Corporations are doing in mid-Asia.  (like stealing the resources of ignorant Muslim tribesmen?)

The tribals in Afghanistan are rising up against their Karzai/Obama government using religion as an excuse to protest and kill.  They don’t have a clue about how to protest politically.  The 18th century western enlightenment is light years away for those poor devils.  Or perhaps the Jasmine Revolution of 2011 has jumped out of its chess board square over there.  Is it coming here too to these shores soon???

Officers and protesters skirmished for the second straight day in the city of Kandahar, leaving two officers and 18 civilians hurt, provincial health director Qayum Pokhla told The Associated Press.
In Jalalabad, the largest city in the east, hundreds of people blocked the main highway for three hours, shouting for U.S. troops to leave, burning an effigy of President Barack Obama and stomping on a drawing of a U.S. flag. More than 1,000 people set tires ablaze to block the highway in eastern Parwan province for about an hour, provincial police chief Sher Ahmad Maladani said. 
Resentment has been building for years here over the operations of Western military forces, blamed for killing and mistreating civilians, and international contractors, seen by many as enriching themselves and fueling corruption at the expense of ordinary Afghans.
Coverage of the ongoing trial of a group of U.S. soldiers' charged with killings of Afghan civilians and the publication of photos of some posing with dead bodies fueled that anger, which violently erupted Friday in a protest over the little-publicized destruction of the Quran last month.
Has the “Welcome Liberators” sign outside the Kabul American embassy faded yet folks?

This is not about religion.  This is just human nature and tribalism.  Us against them.  Turf wars and such.  Framing it with pictures and media words doesn’t change much in terms of local realities. 

It is perhaps just plain global war fatigue.

Have a nice day.
