Islamic 911 terrorist gets religious burial from same Military which BURNED Holy Christian Bibles

Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden was buried at sea from the deck of a U.S. aircraft carrier in the north Arabian Sea after being washed according to Islamic custom and receiving a religious funeral, a U.S. defense official said.

He may have been America’s enemy number one, but after U.S. forces killed him, Osama bin Laden was afforded Islamic religious rites by the U.S. military as part of his surprise at-sea burial.

An Islamic ceremony was carried out on the USS Carl Vinson in the North Arabian Sea.

White house press secretary Jay Carny said the deceased’s body was washed and placed in a white sheet. The body was placed in a weighted bag, then a military officer read an Islamic prayer which was translated into Arabic, then Osama’s body was slipped into the sea.

“The burial of bin Laden’s remains was done in strict conformance with Islamist precepts and practices,” said John Brennan, President Barack Obama’s top counter-terrorism adviser.

According to the U.S. Government those practices that were carried out that day do conform and adhere to Islamic precepts and practices. And some questioned why the man responsible for the September 11, 2001 attacks that killed nearly 3,000 people was laid to rest with such respect.

“I was a Navy doctor and if my (commanding officer) asked me to read a passage of the Koran over that guy, I would have gotten nauseated and sick and wouldn’t have done it,” said Dr. Zuhdi Jasser, a Muslim who heads the American Islamic Forum for Democracy.

Shocking to some people is the “respect” given to the 911 Terrorist in granting an Islamic burial, when in 2009, the US Military personnel threw away, and ultimately burned, confiscated Bibles that were printed in the two most common Afghan languages amid concern they would be used to try to convert Afghans.

The unsolicited Bibles sent by a church in the United States were confiscated at Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan because military rules forbid troops of any religion from proselytizing while deployed there, Lt. Col. Mark Wright said.

But, critics asked why the Military chose to BURN the Holy Bibles instead of returning them to the States….a question which remains unanswered.

QUESTION: Isn’t this hate crime against Christians? Could these churches be pro-life? What is the motive and how come the National Media is not covering this?? Why isn’t President Obama denouncing this as he did the attacks on abortion clinics?

The FBI has been called in to investigate a string of Church arsons in East Texas.

Arson eyed in 5 east TX church fires this month

ATHENS, TX — Federal and state agents have joined local investigators in pursuing clues to who might have torched four east Texas churches this month, three of them in Athens.

On Monday night alone, fires in which arson is suspected devastated two churches in Athens, about 65 miles southeast of Dallas. Athens Fire Chief John McQueary said multiple ignition points were found in both the Lake Athens Baptist Church and the Grace Community Church Tuesday morning.

Arson also is suspected in the fire that destroyed the Faith Church in Athens last week. Since Jan. 1, fires have also destroyed the Little Hope Baptist Church in Canton, about 25 miles north of Athens, and struck a church in Martin’s Mill, 15 miles northeast of Athens.

In McQueary’s words, “We know that whoever’s doing this deed is very bold, but at the same time we’re going to be very bold.” The U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the state fire marshal’s office are helping with the investigation.

Feds Investigate After Two More Texas Churches Burn

Tyler police are investigating two weekend church fires and are urging ministers and congregations to report suspicious activity.

The latest fire was at Tyler’s First Church of Christ, Scientist.

A 911 call Sunday night alerted authorities to the fire, which was under control by about 8 p.m.

A damage estimate wasn’t immediately available.

Saturday night, fire destroyed much of Tyland Baptist Church.

Authorities believe the fire started in the sanctuary.

A police statement says there doesn’t appear to be a connection between the fires.

No injuries were reported in either fire.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is also investigating.
