Pastor Terry Jones Fran Ingram Ten Reasons to Burn a Koran

September 11, 2010

Note that the Ten Reasons to Burn a Koran was written by Fran Ingram not Pastor Terry Jones.

N. at Vdare provided following link that Lawrence Auster posted. Auster supports the Koran burning by Pastor Terry Jones, even though Jones is off it appears. However, Bob Old and the Phelps family at Westboro Baptist Church are saying they will burn a Koran today. Bob Old says at noon and will post video on Youtube of it.

Ten Reasons to Burn a Koran

By Fran Ingram – Posted on 02 September 2010

On 9/11/10 we are burning Korans to raise awareness and warn. In a sense it is neither an act of love nor of hate. We see, as we state in the Ten Reasons below, that Islam is a danger. We are using this act to warn about the teaching and ideology of Islam, which we do hate as it is hateful. We do not hate any people, however. We love, as God loves, all the people in the world and we want them to come to a knowledge of the truth. To warn of danger and harm is a loving act. God is love and truth. If you know the truth it can set you free. The world is in bondage to the massive grip of the lies of Islam. These are:


The Koran teaches that Jesus Christ, the Crucified, Risen Son of God, King of Kings and Lord of Lords was NOT the Son of God, nor was he crucified (a well documented historical fact that ONLY Islam denies). This teaching removes the possibility of salvation and eternal life in heaven for all Islam’s believers. They face eternal damnation in hell if they do not repent.


The Koran does not have an eternal origin. It is not recorded in heaven. The Almighty God, Creator of the World, is NOT it’s source. It is not holy. It’s writings are human in origin, a concoction of old and new teachings. This has been stated and restated for centuries by scholars since Islam’s beginnings, both Moslem and non-Moslem.


The Koran’s teaching includes Arabian idolatry, paganism, rites and rituals. These are demonic, an ongoing satanic stronghold under which Moslems and the world suffer.


The earliest writings that are known to exist about the Prophet Mohammad were recorded 120 years after his death. All of the Islamic writings (the Koran and the Hadith, the biographies, the traditions and histories) are confused, contradictory and inconsistent. Maybe Mohammad never existed. We have no conclusive account about what he said or did. Yet Moslems follow the destructive teachings of Islam without question.


Mohammad’s life and message cannot be respected. The first Meccan period of his leadership seems to have been religiously motivated and a search for the truth. But in the second Medina period he was “corrupted by power and worldly ambitions.” (Ibn Warraq) These are characteristics that God hates. They also led to political assassinations and massacres which continue to be carried out on a regular basis by his followers today.


Islamic Law is totalitarian in nature. There is no separation of church and state. It is irrational. It is supposedly immutable and cannot be changed. It must be accepted without criticism. It has many similarities to Nazism, Communism and Fascism. It is not compatible with Western Civilization.


Islam is not compatible with democracy and human rights. The notion of a moral individual capable of making decisions and taking responsibility for them does not exist in Islam. The attitude towards women in Islam as inferior possessions of men has led to countless cases of mistreatment and abuse for which Moslem men receive little or no punishment, and in many cases are encouraged to commit such acts, and are even praised for them. This is a direct fruit of the teachings of the Koran.


A Muslim does not have the right to change his religion. Apostasy is punishable by death.


Deep in the Islamic teaching and culture is the irrational fear and loathing of the West.


Islam is a weapon of Arab imperialism and Islamic colonialism. Wherever Islam has or gains political power, Christians, Jews and all non-Moslems receive persecution, discrimination, are forced to convert. There are massacres and churches, synagogues, temples and other places of worship are destroyed.

From Acts 19 (Amplified)

18Many also of those who were now believers came making full confession and thoroughly exposing their [former deceptive and evil] practices.

19And many of those who had practiced curious, magical arts collected their books and [throwing them, book after book, on the pile] burned them in the sight of everybody. When they counted the value of them, they found it amounted to 50,000 pieces of silver (about $9,300).

20Thus the Word of the Lord [concerning the attainment through Christ of eternal salvation in the kingdom of God] grew and spread and intensified, prevailing mightily.

Like the Christians in Acts 19, we are publicly burning a book that is demonic. Many of our greatest supporters are ex-Moslems. They know these evils first hand. We are not, like the Nazis, stealing books, destroying properties or harming any people. We are not Nazis nor are we like Nazis. The Christians in Acts 19 did not go on from their scroll burning to harm anyone. They used the public burning as an opportunity, a demonstration to preach the truth. Only to preach and leave the decision of whether to follow the truth or not.

Do not forget POINT SIX. Islam (not us) is totalitarian in nature, like Nazism, Communism, and Fascism. This evil nature of Islam needs to be seen. Moslems around the world burn and kill on a regular basis, every week, properties and people. All you have to do is follow the news. The many death threats we are receiving, the warnings about terror attacks also prove our point. Do Christians make these threats when Bibles or churches are burned? No.

We have fallen asleep since 9/11/01 and have been hoodwinked by the growth of a (for now) non violent Islam. Shall we give in to threats, then, and allow Islam to grow in America unopposed? We at Dove World Outreach Center will not, even if it costs us our lives. For those who support us, we say thank you for standing with us in courage. For those who oppose us, we say wake up and do not give in to the fear and lies!

Others standing with Pastor Terry Jones in some way are Jihad Watch, Gates of Vienna, and Diana West. Those who have supported the Koran burning itself include Lawrence Auster, Laura Wood, and some posters or commenters at all of those sites.

Jihad Watch and Gates of Vienna have many threads with excellent comments on them.

Gates Vienna archives are hard to find so I post a couple links

The Baron’s original post is proven better with each hour of news hysteria over the Koran burning. I have tried the Baron’s comparison out on someone who lived during WWII and they agree with the point.

Moreover, Hollywood really was ridiculing Nazism, Hitler and Mein Kampf all through the war. Germany never threatened to retaliate against American POWs because of Hollywood movies depicting Nazis badly.

Hollywood during WWII was semi-official propaganda. This is a single pastor in Florida with a congregation of 50.

To reiterate the main message brilliantly shown by the Baron.
The White House is saying its only a few radicals in caves that we are fighting. They say its not Islam we are fighting. They said this morning that this one pastor will take back all our work in Afghanistan. (I couldn’t confirm that statement on the WH webpage.)

Petraeus and the White House are saying our troops will suffer from this single pastor’s Koran burning.
The comparison of all the Hollywood movies during WWII mocking Hitler and Nazism in comparison to this one pastor, the Danish Cartoons, etc. does in fact prove that we are fighting all of Islam. It also proves that this is the view of a greater percentage of Muslims today than of Nazis during WWII. It shows a greater percentage of Muslims today want our utter destruction and our implacably against us than Nazis during WWII.

This is an excellent observation and also an important logical extension of the Baron’s superb history lesson.


Once the “moderate” Muslim street remains deafening silent.

How much longer are we to tolerate this intentionally deceptive farce of Muslim “moderation”?

This is yet one more sterling opportunity for Muslims to come out against Islamic intolerance. Instead, they are milking this like the last cow on the farm.

I’m going to cross-post my latest comment in the Why Do Our Soldiers Fight? thread:

As a dedicated bibliophile, I feel obliged to go on the record yet one more time about how reluctant I am to encourage book burning.

But let there be no dispute that it is a person’s most basic right to burn whatever book they own whenever they want to.

That said, there remains one unequivocal fact:


Burning this piece of ideological filth is a direct message and straight-forward object lesson regarding what all Muslims should anticipate if they refuse to abandon jihad.


Either Muslims begin to make this connection or understand that they will have no reason to complain when Damascus, Islamabad, Ankara, Kabul, Tripoli, Riyadh, Baghdad, Tehran, Cairo and other Muslim cities go up in flames.

In my own mind, it is not a question of “if” but when this will happen. The only real question is whether conventional or unconventional weapons will be involved.

Zenster, thank you for your kind words and your powerful posts. I appreciate your highlighting from my posts as well as in your own well thought out and structured comments.

We are submitting to Islam with the reaction of our government. Burning the Koran as you point out is how we send a message of victory instead of defeat to the Muslim world.

That is precisely the message our elites won’t send because they don’t want us to win. Our winning would be a victory for unreconstructed White bigots. This they can not be for. They want us to lose. This is the message the Muslims and we both hear.

There are other good comments by Zenster at several threads. These should be collected onto a blog so as not to be lost. Some more Zenster comments here:

There are others at Gates of Vienna, Jihad Watch, Lawrence Auster, and likely Diana West and Laura Wood as well as other sites.
