Okay, okay it’s a little premature.   But President Obama won the award and he hadn’t done a single thing to bring in world peace.  Terry Jones went from being the most hated man alive to the one man in the country willing to stand up to Islam.  After deciding to cancel, or at least postpone the burning of Qurans, perhaps he will even persuade one group of Muslims to back down from their plans to build a mosque two or three blocks from Ground Zero, the place where we lost thousands on 9/11.  (Let’s never forget they also attacked the Pentagon and would have killed more had brave souls not brought down Flight 93 near Shanksville, Pennsylvania).

For good measure, Pastor Jones of the Dove World Outreach Center in Gainesville, Florida supposedly has a meeting on 9/11 with imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, the warmonger who just today threatened more Islamic terrorism if we don’t let him build the Cordoba Initiative mosque.  Now that Pastor Jones is making a visit to New York on Saturday, odds are only fifty-fifty the mosque goes up where planned.  

Supposedly the lives of soldiers and American tourists everywhere were in danger because Terry Jones planned to burn a few hundred Qurans (Sometimes spelled Korans or Corans). 

Thankfully, General David Petraeus can now get back to fighting the real war against those otherwise peace-loving Muslims in the Middle East.  The ones threatening menace and mayhem if the offensive book-burning takes place or if the offensive mosque-building doesn’t take place.  The ones yelling “Death to Christians”, “Death to America”, and “Death to Israel”!  (Seriously, for a moment, do we really think terrorists need these thin excuses to kill us all?  No, these things simply distract our politicians and military personnel from doing their jobs and sidetrack Christian ministers from preaching the True Gospel).

Would that General Petraeus had said this to the protesters:   “The moment one of you turns from burning the American Flag to injuring or killing one of our soldiers or American Citizens, you’re toast!  We are fighting for freedom, even the free speech rights of people we think are nuts.”

 All this peace stuff is a go unless, of course, the raging-mad Muslims will attack us for just having one person thinking about doing something offensive.  Nah! Our enemies are way too rational for that.  

While real civil unrest was approaching, President Obama was probably golfing.  Let’s not forget how quickly he scheduled that breath-taking, peace-making Beer Summit when civil war nearly broke out between Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates Jr. and Cambridge Massachusetts police Sgt. James Crowley.   But Obama offered no summit for Rauf and the 9/11 victims after months of controversy choosing instead to side with the Mosque-Builders.  Leave it up to Pastor Jones, my soon-to-be, Nobel-prize nominated diplomat to get the job done.  Al Gore won one for just warning us about global warming, Pastor Jones is putting real fires out.

UPDATE 9/10/10: It has come to our attention that Cape Girardeau may end up with two former residents being nominees for the Nobel Peace Prize.   Who was the other almost Nobel laureate?  Jones classmate, and fellow Central High School alumni of 1969, talk show host Rush Limbaugh.

I seriously hope the summit takes place.   Then I might write another article entitled “What if They Called a Bonfire and Peace Broke Out!”   Unlike Obama, Jones may have to wait until he accomplishes something to get a prize.   But I’ll be first in line to make the nomination if that Mosque ends up down the road a fair piece.

  1. David,

    Agree 100%

    The president says burning the quran was against what this nation was founded on when in fact the pressure the government is trying to place on this paster is what the nation was truly founded to prevent. Hypocrisy, hummm.

  2. Spending all their time crying foul, extremist Republicans and Christians have yet to point out all the positive things these 2 Central High products have done after Rush’s draft dodging, drug abuse, and sham marriages. However, the 2 together, show just how to teach the Baby Boomers how to steal from past and future generations. LABI Limbaugh could get all sorts of text books approved in Texas. But, he and TJ are only interested in maintaining the infrastructure of the Texas Book Depository for more legal assassin, legal murders through global warming chemical releases, legal terrorism, and Esso-Koch hatred and greed.

  3. Instead of labeling people into neat categories and goading them to pitch at one another, why not build bridges? Why spend your intelligence on pitching at imaginary ogres which are actually windmills? If a nut or some nuts utter “We are M frogs, Death to all C frogs!”, honestly, how are we going to handle this? Like on a schoolyard? In a psychiatric ward or over the Befriender’s line? One suggestion: why not address the root cause of the problem and pull the carpet from uner their feet, as it were? Please do not throw a glance – if you haven’t yet – at my name and start sticking or wondering a label to affix to it the better to fix your mental coordinates how best to respond or ignore – my bro, you’re adding fuel to fire where none had existed but in so doing you’re joining a long line of fire-breathing dragons which contributes and is one of the causes of the continuous feuding which has been going on since Cain and Abel. I beg not to label you or anyone anything other than for the purpose of playing a friendly game of football or organize the Olympiad. A bit hard to believe this, but there is no such thing as a Christian, Jew, or Muslim. It is just a construct. We are of one blood. Our father Adam never called his children, us, C, J or M, so why should we? C, J and M are of the same religion and tradition. So is a Hindu or Buddhist. Go ahead and label me a nut, old or new or nothing new. Even ignore me as I’m … a bore! But better a bore than a bomb, methinks.

    1. “Please do not throw a glance – if you haven’t yet – at my name and start sticking or wondering a label to affix to it “

      Your self-consciousness in this area is unwarranted. Your name is irrelevant to me.

      With all due respect, if all labels are wrong, then the label you attached to me (“fire-breathing dragons”) is wrong.

      ” A bit hard to believe this, but there is no such thing as a Christian, Jew, or Muslim. It is just a construct”

      It is foolish to fall into the trap of a world without meaning. I categorically deny the world view you put forth called “constructivism”. Reality exists beyond what you or I call it. All discussion becomes meaningless if either party can subjectively call any words the other uses “just a construct”. “You say we are of one blood – that is just a construct”. “You ask me to ‘build briges’ – that is simply a construct”

      You see how that works. There is no use discussing anything at all with a sophist such as yourself.
