The Fifth Column: On Burning Books

The Fifth Column: On Burning Books: "Still, for a people who feel themselves rendered impotent by a series of wars against Islamic radicals that are never-ending, by a president whose pro-Muslim sympathies are painfully and frighteningly clear, by a level of Muslim violence which cannot be controlled or managed, the burning of the Koran is an act by which any Christian can symbolically center themselves. It is a declaration of war against an increasingly chaotic universe, a Mahdi-inspired universe.
By burning a Koran, we tell the Muslim radical, 'Here I stand. You shall not pass.'

It may not be prudent, it may not be useful, but it is a stand worthy of respect."
