Muslim Group Proposes Strict Disciplinary Measures of Service Members Desecrating Holy Books

General NewsSun, 05/18/2008 - 13:54

In response to the recent desecration of the Holy Qu’ran by a US Soldier, the Executive Director of the American Muslim Armed Forces and Veteran Affairs Council (AMAF & VAC) plans to address this appalling and disrespectful conduct with the Joint Chief of Staff Chaplain, as well as the CENTCOM Chaplain on Monday, May 19, 2008.

Service members come in contact with people of various faith groups all around the world. Disrespect of sacred places, holy books, and other artifacts affects the success of the mission by providing justification for individuals and groups who oppose the presence of US service members. It also suggests that Americans are intolerant of other faiths.

Apparantly terrorism pays. It pays very well - from CNN AC360

http://ac360.blogs.cnn.com/2008/02/27/apparently-terrorism-pays-it-pays-very-well/

For some time now a trio of self-proclaimed ex-terrorists has been making the rounds of the lecture circuit, charging thousands of dollars for their fantastical tales of life as murderous Muslim extremists.

Their most recent appearance was at the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, which hosted the three at its 50th Annual Academy Assembly on the topic, “Dismantling Terrorism: Developing Actionable Solutions for Today’s Plague of Violence.”

Anti-Islam Air Force Academy Speaker a ‘Fraud’

Three “former terrorists” speaking today at the Air Force Academy will stick to their area of expertise — terrorism — and won’t be promoting Christianity, academy officials said Tuesday.

“No one is here to talk about religion,” academy spokesman Maj. Brett Ashworth said. “The purpose is to educate future officers and delegates from 50 colleges and universities on the ideology and methodology of terrorists in preparation for leadership positions in the war on terror.”

The “former terrorists” — Walid Shoebat, Kamal Saleem and Zak Anani — will be paid a total of $13,000 for their appearance at the 50th annual Academy Assembly, a conference sponsored by the academy and Columbia University’s American Assembly. Most of the funding comes from private donations through the academy’s Association of Graduates.
