…even though Michigan prosecutors refuse to press charges against the man who burned a Quran outside a mosque because “there was no violation of Michigan law.”
Detroit News Burning a holy book, whose pages were found outside the Islamic Center of East Lansing on Sept. 11, doesn’t qualify as a hate crime, Dunnings said. “We don’t have a hate crime. There was no threat of physical intimidation because (the man who burned the Quran) was the only one there at the time,” Dunnings said.
The act also was protected by the First Amendment, said Dunnings, who equated it to burning a flag.
The incident, which occurred on the ninth anniversary of the 2001 terror attacks, prompted worldwide condemnation and rioting by Muslims.
A Lansing man, whose identity has not been released, told police he burned the holy book. He should face federal charges, said Dawud Walid, executive director of (Terrorist Front Group) CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations-Michigan.)
“Not to prosecute this hate crime would send a terrible message to bigots that there will be no legal repercussion against those who intimidate Muslims at their houses of worship,” Walid said. (Muslims send a terrible message to Americans just by their presence here)
“While this individual may not have broken any Michigan law, he has caused tremendous grief to a lot of people both locally and beyond our community,” wrote Dr. Mahmoud Mousa, president of the Islamic Society of Greater Lansing. (Well Boo Fricken Hoo)
He said the mosque has a “Learn, Don’t Burn” campaign that gives away Qurans free to promote understanding. (We have learned all about the Qur’an which is why it needs to be incinerated)
“We should all promote a message of mutual respect and tolerance. If anything, this incident has strengthened the will and determination of our communities to live together in peace and harmony,” Mousa said.
“We hope this will be the message that the rest of the world learns from this unfortunate incident,” he said. “We wish that no race, religion or community would undergo the pain that we underwent.”
You don’t wish any race or religion to feel pain? Oh really? Let’s take a look at what Muslims do to people of different religions in the rest of the world.
