Our friend and ally Karzai comes through for us yet again. But what else could Khaliqdad say? Infidels burned the Qur’an — how else could they have done it except out of “Islamophobia”? Islam doesn’t even envision the possibility of non-Muslims rejecting Islam in good conscience and good faith; instead, they can only reject it out of greed or desire for some other personal gain. Given that, it is virtually inconceivable that an Afghan investigation could find that the Qur’an-burning was anything but intentional.
In any case, this wouldn’t even be an issue if the U.S. hadn’t, by means of the multiple apologies from American officials, signaled its willingness to abide by Sharia rules for handling the Qur’an.
“US Qur’an burning was intentional, Afghan investigator says,” by Subel Bhandari for Deutsche Presse Agentur, March 5:
Kabul (dpa) — The burning of the Qur’an at a US military base in Afghanistan was intentional, a member of the investigating team told dpa Monday.
“We believe it is intentional,” said Maulavi Khaliqdad, a member of the panel established by President Hamid Karzai.
“If they burnt one or two copies, then we could have said it could have been a mistake. But they took hundreds of such books to burn. Everyone knew those were religious books.”…
Khaliqdad said the team’s finding that the burning was intentional has been presented to Karzai and parliament.
“It is impossible if you collect that many books from library “¦ Someone is responsible for this,” he said. “We cannot accept that they say it was a mistake.”
“A mistake is when someone does something without any knowledge or when someone is unaware,” said Khaliqdad, who is also a member of religious Ulema Council of Islamic scholars and mullahs.
