Ron Paul: End the Wars, Stop Blaming Islam for 9/11

Congressman Ron Paul today issued the following statement about a Florida pastor’s plan to ban copies of the Quran on the anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks.

A professed Christian pastor in Gainesville, Florida, Terry Jones, plans to burn copies of the Quran on 9/11. He indicts all Islam for 9/11 and argues that it is a hate-driven religion. He’s convinced he’s on God’s side even though he is getting little support from other Christians, who believe that Jesus is the Prince of Peace.

General David Petraeus, our military commander in Afghanistan, strongly condemned Mr. Jones’ plan, arguing it would be provocative, make his fight against the Taliban in Afghanistan more difficult and further jeopardize the lives of American soldiers.

I agree! This blame of all Muslims for the atrocities of 9/11 only makes things worse — especially since it wasn’t the Taliban of Afghanistan that committed the atrocities on 9/11. Under Jones’ warped logic, we should have attacked Saudi Arabia since 15 of the 19 suicide bombers came from that country.

But while I am pleased to see General Petraeus recognize the danger of one type of incitement, he unfortunately fails to see the whole picture and understand that our policies of torture, targeted assassination, invasion of Muslim countries and unintended infliction of civilian casualties in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan are also provocative. Pictures of victims of torture as well as innocent people killed by drones and stray bombs are every bit as bad as burning the Quran.

In some ways, what Jones is doing may be minor compared to the resentment toward us as a consequence of what our government has done to thousands of innocent victims.

As I have said time and time again, Osama bin Laden wins by ‘proving’ that America is an enemy of Islam and has an occupation agenda in the Middle East. And, we continue to walk into his trap and hand him up his best recruitment tool in his efforts to provoke hatred and terrorism against the United States.

If we don’t want to incite radical Islamists, we need to stop these un-needed wars. It is high time we came to our senses, brought our troops home to defend our country and pursued a Constitutional, Pro-American foreign policy.

    All we are doing is falling right into the ignorant hate-trap. We DO have the right to burn any book in this country and it makes it alot easier when the book to burn is the foundational faith for these extremists. Yes, burning our flag and urinating on the Bible is wrong, but DONT FALL FOR THE HATETRAP!!!. That is what they want, some fire up our arse. I personally would just burn the book just to get rid of it (get it out of circulation) and not make a scene, not announce it to fuel some fire that a burning brightly on it’s own.
    Christians especially should not play into this, SETTING A BAD EXAMPLE FOR NON-BELIEVERS OF CHRIST. thanks:)

    • Ross

      Kristin,We should not also fall the the other hate trap ie Jewish or black hatred.

      It is the old game of divide and conquer that elites have played throughout the My enemy’s enemy,is my friend.

      Wall St and the big banksters are trying to play us all off against each other.They know that we know and their panic mode has them caught in a time warp.

    “Under Jones’ warped logic, we should have attacked Saudi Arabia since 15 of the 19 suicide bombers came from that country”

    Interesting, is there any relationship between the NYC Muslim Center and Saudies (funding)?

  • kwulf

    1. I support the right to burn any book as a form of protest.
    2. I support our right to defend ourselves against violence should muslims anywhere be inclined to attack Americans or our allies in response to the Koran burning.

    Despite what our military leaders say, provoking a hostile enemy to irrational action can be a good thing, because it can bring the enemy out in the open on our timetable, so we can identify all its force components.

    If the Muslim world wants to declare holy war on everyone else, and they want to use a backwater pastor as an excuse to do so, then bring it on, it was bound to happen anyway.

    Realistically, some muslim leaders will declare war and incite their followers to violence, and some will not. The ones that do will be more easily targeted and taken out. Gangs of muslims acting violently will be more easily found and killed or captured.

    But open war will force each muslim on the fence to PUBLICLY decide if they want to support sharia medieval brutality or modern government and peaceful plurality. If they choose the former, they start down the dead-end road to the ash heap of history. If they pick the latter, they will need to separate from their radical brethren as a rufugee or be killed by them.

    But at least we can eventually sort em out. We won’t let them operate as sleeper cells. We will find them, and we will kill or imprison them.

    That’s where this is all going. Face it folks, this has been coming a long time. It is time for another world war. War is the normal state of human affairs when large groups of humans demonize another enough to kill innocents intentionally. That is where we are with at least 20% of the Islamic world. Humans only learned to trade with groups speaking other languages 120,000 years ago. Peaceful trade is a young idea, and it has never been accepted worldwide. Many tribes simply do not trust outsiders.

    In ten years, we will have millions of publicly radicalized muslims interned in, or exiled from modern nations, and the muslim nations will be isolated economically and militarily. There will also be millions of muslims who will create a modern faction which renounces jihad and violence, so that they will not have to live in muslim ghettoes.

    Sleepers will still kill us at significant rates for many years, in protest of sanctions, and that will not likely end for centuries. Unfortunately Big Brother policies will need to be used to ferret out sleepers. I hate this, but it is also inevitable.

    Our better angels are far in our future. Meanwhile, we must fight to survive.

    • jim

      I don’t think Jesus’ message was be christain when it’s convenient.

      • Dfens

        I won’t come here to find out what Jesus’ message was.

        “Do not think that I came to bring peace on the earth; I did not come to bring peace, but a sword. For I came to set a man against his father, and a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law; and a man’s enemies will be the members of his household. He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me; and he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me. He who has found his life will lose it, and he who has lost his life for My sake will find it.” — Matthew 10:34-39

        • Nitroindole

          So what? This citation implies that you condemn even your close relatives if they do not follow His law, His 10 commandments.

          Treat others in the way you want they treat you.

          And what is your interpretation? Instigate and cut off heads? Burn Quran?

          We have 1000 + 1 problem in this country where economy of paper fiat money is expiring along with the pride of the Nation. Yet they want you and me forget about that, but instead burn Qurans, burn sombody’s countries, hate and keep killing. And you respond readily… to Satan, not to Jesus. Like a sheep….. Bee-e-e-e-e-e-e.

          So who the hell Christians are, show me where they are and what they are doing these days??????

        • Dfens

          Where are the Christians? They are being killed and oppressed by Muslims in Indonesia while their brethern in the US and Europe look the other way. They are being killed by Muslims in Somalia and Ethiopia, but what’s on the other channel? 3,000 Americans, mostly Christians were killed right here on our home soil in an operation funded by Saudi oil money on 9/11 and where are Christians? They’re busy driving to church in their SUVs. After all, we wouldn’t want to offend anyone.

        • Nitroindole

          I mean real Christian must not kill, that is what New Testament says, isn’t it?

          And what is your attitude to the fact that 500,000 Iraqi children under the age of 5 have died in Iraq since the imposition of U.N. sanctions in the 90-s??? Did the effect (which one?) worth those half-million deaths?

          Christians kill each other and kill others for over 2000 years under a variety of “righteous” pretexts. No one really follow Jesus in the Earth….

          Another question is: Who is going to benefit out of another bloody war between Christians and Muslims? Not too hard to guess, those who belong not to either ones. So who they are?

          Do you like playing their deadly game??? Do you want another bloddy war?

          If answer is NO, then please do not provoke it. Otherwise we all will regret.

        • Dfens

          “I have come to cast fire upon the earth; and how I wish it were already kindled! But I have a baptism to undergo, and how distressed I am until it is accomplished! Do you suppose that I came to grant peace on earth? I tell you, no, but rather division; for from now on five members in one household will be divided, three against two and two against three.” — Luke 12:49-52

          Yeah, Christians don’t kill and we turn the other cheek, and we keep not killing and turning the other cheek until it becomes clear that our enemy has become intractable and has confused meekness with weakness and then we kill them in numbers that make the Biblical plagues look like a sunny afternoon in the park. There is no religion in this world that can rain hell fire and destruction upon the Earth like the Christian religion. And if you don’t believe that, just keep on f’ing with us.

        • David

          Hi Dfens;

          Well in terms of relevance to political discussions i’ll simply stick with our first Amendment, but i do share your faith.

          Christ did set several examples for us:

          He cast out the money changers which we urgently need to do at this point and which i expect the American people are about to do at long last.

          He confirmed our second amendment by instructing his disciples that if they had no sword, to sell their cloak and buy one, with your quotation being relevant to this as well, by establishing that freedom can only be established and maintained by presenting a threat to the power that would prevent it. This again the American people have done (for which i am very proud of them) which is exactly why they currently have the means to present such a threat in order to accomplish the former.

          He established that freedom comes from the shedding of blood, as he shed his own for precisely this purpose, as did the founding fathers of this single and only nation on earth which is based on principles of freedom which he himself adhered to. He established this as an act of love as well in that “greater love has no man than that he would be willing to lay down his life for a friend”, which again is precisely what these individuals did, and what he did himself.

          Hopefully people will be wise enough to organize themselves and act collectively in order to destroy the power which threatens their freedom and has destroyed their prosperity peacefully so that the original sacrifice of love by our founding fathers can be sufficient, but if not, i expect that there are more than enough who would be willing to make the same sacrifice in order to restore these things as well. I also think that there are a great many Americans who do not share in our faith who would be willing to make the same sacrifice for their country and their fellow citizens as well and this makes them equally noble and equally American and is after all what defines an “American”.

          “I do hereby solemnly swear to defend the Constitution of the United States of America against all enemies, both foreign and domestic”.

          Seems like the domestic enemies are the ones we need to get rid of and without Banks to involve us in wars and enforcing their power across the globe for the sake of creating more debt and buying more power and ownership over America for themselves, the foreign enemies would pretty much disappear of their own accord. We would be of little consequence to them after that other than the fact that they would all exist in order to serve the massive purchasing power which the American population would be able to create for itself without Banks to control and restrict their prosperity.

        • jim

          That quotation is not about a literal sword. It is about severing any bond that you would put above the one you have with God. Since you only will go to the bible for it’s understanding, please explain these excerpts.

          Do not repay evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everybody. If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. Do not take revenge, my friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,” says the lord. On the contrary: “If your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thristy, give him something to drink. In doing this, you will be heaping hot coals on his head.” Do not be overcome by evil, overcome evil with good (Romans 12:17-21)

          But I tell you who hear me: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those that curse you, pray for those who mistreat you (Luke 6:27-28)

          Do not repay evil with evil or insult with insult, but with blessing, because to this you were called so that you might inherit a blessing (1 Peter 3:9)

          Anyone who claims to be in the light but still hates his brother lives in the darkness. Whoever loves his brother lives in the light, and there is nothing in him to make him stumble (1 John 2:9-10)

          Try to remember Jesus says he is the sword. Not us.

          While they were enjoying themselves, some of the wicked men of the city surrounded the house. Pounding on the door, they shouted to the old man who owned the house, “Bring out the man who came to your house so we can have sex with him.”

          The owner of the house went outside and said to them, “No, my friends, don’t be so vile. Since this man is my guest, don’t do this disgraceful thing. Look, here is my virgin daughter, and his concubine. I will bring them out to you now, and you can use them and do to them whatever you wish. But to this man, don’t do such a disgraceful thing.”

          But the men would not listen to him. So the man took his concubine and sent her outside to them, and they raped her and abused her throughout the night, and at dawn they let her go. At daybreak the woman went back to the house where her master was staying, fell down at the door and lay there until daylight.

          When her master got up in the morning and opened the door of the house and stepped out to continue on his way, there lay his concubine, fallen in the doorway of the house, with her hands on the threshold. He said to her, “Get up; let’s go.” But there was no answer. Then the man put her on his donkey and set out for home.

          When he reached home, he took a knife and cut up his concubine, limb by limb, into twelve parts and sent them into all the areas of Israel. Everyone who saw it said, “Such a thing has never been seen or done, not since the day the Israelites came up out of Egypt. Think about it! Consider it! Tell us what to do!” — Judges 19:22-30

          So they fled before the Israelites in the direction of the desert, but they could not escape the battle. And the men of Israel who came out of the towns cut them down there. They surrounded the Benjamites, chased them and easily overran them in the vicinity of Gibeah on the east. Eighteen thousand Benjamites fell, all of them valiant fighters. As they turned and fled toward the desert to the rock of Rimmon, the Israelites cut down five thousand men along the roads. They kept pressing after the Benjamites as far as Gidom and struck down two thousand more.

          On that day twenty-five thousand Benjamite swordsmen fell, all of them valiant fighters. But six hundred men turned and fled into the desert to the rock of Rimmon, where they stayed four months. The men of Israel went back to Benjamin and put all the towns to the sword, including the animals and everything else they found. All the towns they came across they set on fire. — Judges 20:42-48

          The tribe of Benjamin was nearly wiped out of existance, why? Not because they were all homosexual, but because they refused to stand up against the immoral acts of a few of their fellows. The time has come to choose a side.

        • What a bunch of primates.

          All religions cause hate and murder.

          How ironic that the ones who claim to be the most enlightened cannot recognize evil for the life of them.

          Indoctrination alters the logic center of the brain. Google it.

        • jim

          To Primate

          All religions cause hate.

          All races cause racism.

          All nationalities cause ethnicism.

          etc. etc. etc.

          Blanketed generalizations are never true. They are stereotypes that over-simplify an issue. They make everybody clones in a collective group. This is simply false.

          You also said Religion alters the mind.

          Everything alters the mind. Reading any book will alter your mind. You read something, and your brain always associates new information with old stored information. You begin strengthening old synaptic responses, and newer synpatic responses. You will do this by drinking large amounts of water as well. I will tell you how religion affected me when I was young. I heard the parables every week and didn’t really understand much because hey I was kid. Then one day I heard a song, I was about 5. It is the first thing I can remember clearly understanding at church. It went, ” When I was hungry you gave me to eat/ When I was thirsty you gave me to drink/ Now enter into the home of my father/ For whatever you do/ To the least of my people/ That you do onto me. That is the oldest synaptic response I have. Yes, it altered my brain. I have taken that to be the key message of Christainity.

          As to Dfense… we simply have very different intreptations of the Prince of Peace’s message. I always thought his message was,”Faith, hope and love and the greatest of these is love.” You seem to believe something else. We will have to agree to disagree.

        • Primate

          To Jim

          Don’t get me wrong, I consider myself to be tolerant of just about all belief systems. If a grown man wanted to believe in santa clause or the boogey man, that would be okay with me. The problem arises when bodies start turning up because of conflicting mythological beliefs. Apparently, not everyone is as tolerant as I am.

          I also agree that blanket generalizations are inaccurate. What I don’t agree with is your notion that hate and murder as a by-product of religion is some how as naturally occuring as race or ethnicity. People can’t pick their race, but they can pick their beliefs — unless of course they were indoctrinated.

          Teaching children to hate or dislike people because they have a different belief, race or ethnicity is wrong. That’s regardless of what some ancient book says.

          There is absolutely nothing wrong with spiritually appreciating a religion, or becoming enlightened, or being at one with the universe, or whatever you’d like to call it. I do understand the positive aspects of religion. People need to understand, though, that in order to have your religious freedom respected in society, you must also respect the religious freedom of others. Just because you told me that santa clause isn’t as cool as the boogey man, it doesn’t mean I am justified in harming you.

          In a couple thousand years the majority of mankind will likely view the religions of today in the same way we look at Greek mythology now, and we will probably be better off for it since there haven’t been too many Zues-related wars lately.


          The effect of indoctrination on the brain is much deeper than simply forming memories and connecting brain cells. Studies have shown that indoctrination is capable of effectively shutting off the logic center of the human brain.

          Think about it. This would explain all of these crazy results religions have been giving us all of these years.

          My point is that it’s time for man to grow up and stop fighting over invisible friends.

  • There is a lot of heated discussion regarding the burning of the Koran/Quran but I keep thinking about something my mother taught me when I was a kid…how to put the shoe on the other foot. In other words, how to look at a situation from someone else’s point of view. And regardless of how emotionally charged people are about the issue as a whole, if they are Christians they would not take it lightly if some (minor) religious group decided to burn the Bible regardless of the reasons cited by the people doing the burning.

    There needs to be a new independant investigation into 911.There was a third building that came down that day WTC 7 which housed CIA,FBI and ENRON offices.Very few people know about WTC 7.No plane impacted WTC 7 and at 47 stories high came down it’s own foot print in 6.5sec. It took 6 yrs for NIST to put out a sham report on WTC 7 which they have now retracted.

    We have undisputed proof of freefall physics that proves beyond any doubt that it was impossible for this building to come down this fast and in this fashion.We also have proof from a team of 10 international scientists led by Prof Neils Harritt that nano thermite a highly sophistocated military explosive was used in all buildings of 911.

    Radical Islams ? Sure there are loads nowadays (well I’m definitely not one of them) but you made them ! Because of the fake story of 9/11 , you wanted the oil (which is largely in Muslim countries!). If it was in a country where the buddhism/Christianism/Hinduism or any other religion or spiritual stuff was practiced, you would have blamed them.

    You created the radical Islamists and all the shit which goes with that. So now PLEASE get on with it ! It’s your own fault, you’ve got bloods on your hands ! IT’S TIME TO WAKE UP AND FACE the bloody music !

    • Dfens

      I hope I can find a copy of the Koran with nice, soft pages before the burning. Not Charmin soft, mind you, something more like Northern. Strong enough to take a load. My copy is going to be used. Well used. It should lend the proper aroma to the event.

  • Kris

    Although I am a huge fan of Mr Ron Paul, I for one support the idea of burning Quran on 9/11.

    The reason being that it is now such an unimaginable thing to do! Where is the liberty? If I buy a copy of Quran I can do whatever I want with it. It is plain rude and insensitive to burn an item of religious significance to other people, especially publicly, but this should never enter the political agenda as it has, and should never be blown out of proportion as it has been.

    It seems the western world is all too happy to self-censor, and to apply the most blatant double standards in order to try to appease the people they are on the other hand murdering and enslaving! This is madness.

    The freedom of speech and one rule of the law for all are more important that sensitivity. It is said that a religious minister feels compelled to make such an rude thing as burning Quran, but it seems the only way to show that some of us refuse to be bullied, censored and intimidated under twisted pretences of not hurting Muslims’ feelings.

    Quran is a holy book of Muslims. If they want to legislate its status and introduce penal system in their countries for disrespecting it then fine. But we must not bow to these alien rules in our countries. We must not give way and adjust our values and our way of life as per radical Muslims’ standards.

    As for infuriating and provoking non-militant Muslims, tough luck! We have every right to live our lives the way we want to even if it’s not in conformity with their religion, and we should make it known! If we’ll just keep doing everything to their liking soon we’ll be nothing more than slaves under the Muslim rule.

    This is not about aggression or expansion against Islam, this is about liberty of Muslim world to do as they please in their countries and our liberty to do as we please in ours.

      Hey guess what kids, the mosque is still going to be built on “ground zero” after it gets built what are you racist bigots going to complain about next?

    • Travis

      Paul never made mention to the minister not having the right to do what he is planning, niether did the general to my knowlege.

      So I agree with you to the extent that the minister has the right to do whatever he wants to his own copies of the quran.
      People also have the right to burn the American flag, the bible or whatever else is their own property.

      People also have the right to voice out their opinions on the matter and express any distaste they have in their nieghbors action or support.
      That is all that is going on, I’m not really against people weighing in on the situation. Because they have the right to their opinion.

      As a Christian I am strongly apposed to this open act of disrespect towards another faith and think the hate filled idiots like this minister make it embarrassing (in a way) to be a Christian.
      This is not completely unlike the hate filled “God hates fags” agenda.
      Christ said the world would recongize us by our love and would follow his example.
      Jesus spoke very boldly and I don’t think he was quite the pacifist that people paint nowdays but the people he came down on weren’t the pagans (think of the woman at the well) but the hypocrits (think of the pharisies).

    • Nitroindole

      Hey Kris,

      You are almost right in your selfish logic but missing one critical fact:

      By actions of US government and US military we USA got our liberty to do as we please in THEIR countries (Islamic countries!), including burning their countries, like Iraq. Can you see???

      And if this is still not enough for you, go ahesd burn everything you can.

      • Kris

        As you rightly noted it is US government that is killing Muslims in their homelands, not me or Terry Jones.

        The hate towards USA comes from innocent people being killed, countries being invaded and occupied, governments being corrupted and manipulated by US officials. Not from some insignificant pastor burning a copy of Quran.

        And while politicians organise and carry out these sinister deeds they have the nerve to patronise, scare, censor and intimidate US citizens into some weird submissive servitude towards Islam. This is simply an opportunistic assault on freedom of Americans. Neither radical Muslims nor US government have right to violate constitutional freedoms of US citizens and if it takes insensitive gestures to remind people of that fact, then so be it.

        Do you really think that normal Muslims care more about some pastor in Florida burning Quran more than about all the bombings, torture, unlawful imprisonments, occupation, trade blockades?

        • Nitroindole

          No, I do not think that.

          But burning Qurans is as provocative as killing of prince Ferdinand and burning Reichstag! These insignificant deeds led directly to WW I and WW II.

          If we the people really want proving that we still have some of our liberties left then we need to stop UNCONSTITUTIONAL WARS in the first place, stop unconstitutional theft fiat money system along with the Fed and start follow our Constitution Law in reality, not in our dreams.

          And, you right, burning Quran is insignificant. Is this the ONLY our liberty left?

          One more thing. Outside the US they do NOT distinguish between you and me and our corrupted government. For them we are all the same – Americans.

          What made them “their countries”?

  • I don’t know why people are acting as if Christians & Catholics in this country haven’t committed the worst hate crime. We still have built churches where the slaves lived. At that a location where they killed hundreds of black people. Its only white people that are mad about this. WHY is that. We do we still dwell in the past haven’t we criticized and stereotype people long enough without knowing anything about them. If you ask me all RELIGION is bad. But that is just how I feel.This is supposed to be the land of the free. Now they are kicking the Mexicans out of AZ. Like they aren’t the real immigrants to this country. But that’s another story. Vote Dr Ron Paul 2012. Lets get this right people. But with you being on this site I assume that we already have your vote

  • He’s only a Republican because belonging to a major party gives him better recognition and a better shot at the ballot. He has urged people to vote independent and the only reason why he doesn’t run as one is because their are only two parties that get airtime in MSM news. He has admitted this.

  • But, but…he’s a republican! How come he doesn’t fit into my narrow perception that all GOPers are the spawn of satan?

    I agree what this so called christian is doing is unnecessary. childish antagonism. I liken it to muslims putting a cross in a jar of urine or building a mosque at ground zero. It does not however compare to say… Chopping an americans head off, then putting a video of such on the web. Or flying airplanes full of americans into buildings full of americans. I also agree we did not need to start two wars, we had the technology to handle the problem differently. As I understand it this same so-called christian was burning non- king James versions of the bible a while back. If he does choose to burn these Korans, do you think the media will report that story even 1 out of every 10 times they plaster the koran burning story on our TV screens. If there was any responsibility in media, this story would not see the light of day.

      Your comparison of the actions of the so called “Christian” minister, who is a intsy winsey minority in the Christian religion to the intsy winsey minority of so called “Muslims” who carried out the terrist acts you described ….
      You do realize you’re compairing minorities, who do not practice what their faith teaches, that have grabbed the spotlight that seems to be representing the entire religion?

      And if you realize this, why are you making a connection with the Muslims in NYC to the ones who attacted the twin towers?

  • I hope those people have a change of heart about burning the Quaran.

    And for the Hawks in the republican party do they believe any of these statements???

    – The world is for the meek –

    – Turn the other cheek –

    – Let he without sin cast the first stone –

    – FORGIVE THEM LORD for they know not what they do –

    Maybe, just maybe, some Muslims are angry not because we are christains but because we don’t act like christains.

    Why did Brutus loss the argument to Antony in Shakespeare’s Caesar??? Because Brutus talked to the people’s reason, while Antony spoke to their baser side. Do we make that mistake now??? Thanks for being a true renaissance man Dr. Paul.
