US Soldier Snipes a Qur’an, Loads of Apologies And Whinning Fill The Air…….

The West, due to its superior culture, usually knows how to apologize for regrettable acts that fall short of its own high moral standards. Case in point, a US soldier serving in Iraq uses a Qur’an as target practice, which was in fact a political statement, something which no military member -especially serving in the field- has the licence to make.
So the US military reprimands the soldier and issues a formal apology. But then it manages to go way overboard with the apology, and turned it into a spectacle of shirtless groveling accompanied with the sounds of wailing and the gnashing of teeth. Read this:

APNEWS: “I come before you here seeking your forgiveness,” Maj. Gen. Jeffery Hammond was quoted as saying. “In the most humble manner I look in your eyes today and I say please forgive me and my soldiers.” The commander also read a letter of apology by the shooter, and another military official kissed a Quran and presented it to the tribal leaders, according to CNN.”

That is going way too far, handing them a new Qur’an would have been enough, kissing it was a sign subservance to Islam, and that definately crosses the line. But hey, since spirit of apologetics is in the air, and the hurt feelings of Muslims are still yet to be soothed, lets take it all the way shall we? Lets really apologize! But will they ever be satisfied? *L* KGS
