I wasn't going to get into this- even when Gen Petraeus came out against US citizens exercising their First Amendment rights--
I remember a book _Alms for Jihad_ written by US citizens removed from book shelves because a Saudi billionaire threatened to sue Cambridge Press if they did not..seems like book burning to me!
I remember another book - _Funding Evil_ that was also attacked by the above S-billionaire-because it was published in the US --and even though there was a move to remove (burn) it _Funding Evil_ can still be purchased...
I have a long memory of the DoD and DoS coming against the Christian Bible:notice the date of my post 2009!!!
Notice - too- my 'gotcha' title' -Koran burned--I knew that the US gvt would not burn the Koran - they handle it w/'kid' gloves at Gitmo!!!
General MacArthur's take-and Pentagon Bible burning
Right After 9-11--!!!!!
I also remember:
That we were told that we could NOT send Bibles in general troop boxes even if we sent them to known family members on our own 'dime'! $
We were informed that our female soldiers were NOT ALLOWED to DRIVE in Saudi Arabia-that we had to be "SENSITIVE" to their laws..
I also know that my CHRISTIAN brothers and sisters are being ANNIHILATED over there-by the followers of radical Islam and NO THING is being done about it...
There was NO OUT-RAGE on the part of Christians-not even for 9-11--Hmmmmm
I do wish that General Petraeus would also have spoken against the school in Colorado for NOT allowing a student to fly the US FLAG on his truck !!! h/t :Gateway
Whether I agree w/ the pastor or not- I don't believe a General- whom I admire- should be holding the PC line !! unless he also speaks to the usurpation of the rights of US citizens!!
There-I've stated it - in writing!!
