Although Cognac is not as popular in the United States and Canada as it is in Europe, and although it is not as popular even in Europe as it used to be, those that drink it know something special about it.
According to French Law, to bear the name Cognac, the production methods for the distilled brandy must meet defined legal requirements, ensuring strict conformity with a 300-year old production process. Hence the saying “All Cognac is Brandy, but not all Brandy is Cognac”.
Al-Qaeda is a militant Islamic group founded sometime between August 1988 and late 1989. It operates as a network comprising both a multinational, stateless army and a radical Sunni Muslim movement calling for global Jihad. It is considered a terrorist organization.
Islam is the world’s second largest religion, second only to Christianity. Islam has 1.57 Billion adherents making up 23% of the world’s population. Al-Qaeda, on the other hand, consists of, at best, tens of thousands of radicals. Therefore we can say that all Al-Qaeda are Muslim, but not all Muslims are Al-Qaeda. Not by a long shot.
Unfortunately, there are those that would paint all Muslims as terrorists bent on attacking the US and it’s allies such as Canada. And so a Florida preacher by the name of Terry Jones decides it would be a great idea to have Christians join in a mass burning of the Quran, the holy book of Islam. I think I’m getting flashbacks from the 1940’s and Nazis burning books and labeling Jews as the world’s problem.
As with Cognac and Al-Qaeda, Nazis can join this elite comparison. Christianity is the world’s largest religion comprising of 2.4 Billion adherent through out the world. By comparison the Nazis comprised of a few million adherents who were Christians (Not all Germans were Nazis). So once again, we can say that all Nazis were Christians but not all Christians were Nazis. Not by a long shot.
It is time for western governments to pay attention to and start enforcing their hate laws before it becomes impossible. I receive numerous emails daily from people I would least expect to receive them from spouting what can only be viewed as hate literature.
So here is the question: Should we gather all the Quran that we can lay our hands on and have one big bonfire or should we go to Florida and roast Reverend Terry Jones in his own bonfire for putting the lives of Canadian and American troops at risk through his stupidity.
