International Judge the Koran Day Update: Video Released

International Judge the Koran Day Update: Video Released On March 20, 1011,  Pastor Terry Jones held a mock trial of the Koran at Gainesville, Fl. and executed it by burning.  The imposition of punishment upon the book was condemned as 'hate speech' & 'inciting violence' by the OIC, UN, President, Secretary of State, Congressmen & Generals.  it was said that the act endangered our troops overseas and threatened world peace. 

     Inflammatory kutbah at Jumah Salat incited riots which resulted in considerable death and property damage, consequent of rabble rousing rants in mosques, not the trial & burning of the Koran.  

    A  press release from Stand Up America, dated January 29, 2012, announced the delayed uploading of the video of  International Judge the Qur'an Day, which occurred March 20, 2011. The original streaming video has been divided into five parts.  The audio quality of the first part is marginal.  Since the trial was conducted in Arabic with a translator, it is not easy listening. 

    The execution begins just after 57.5 minutes into the fifth part.  One matter becomes clear: the front cover of the book is facing us and the spine of the book is on the left, which shows us that they burned a translation, not an Arabic Qur'an, which is printed from right to left.   Only the Arabic Qur'an is considered sacred.  The riots and recriminations were a big fuss over nothing. 

Koran on trial

      The prosecutor gave prominent mention of the following verses in his opening statement:

Note that close context can be significant and that there are differences in the numbering schemes between Arabic and English translations.  For a table of 37 parallel translations for easy comparison, visit:  and select the surah and ayeh of interest. 

    For a terse but authentic explanation of any ayeh, visit and select the surah and ayeh. 

    For a longer and more detailed tafsir, including quotes from relevant hadith, visit and select the surah & ayeh of interest. 


  1. crimes against humanity: training and promoting terrorists
  2. death, rape, torture of people worldwide whose only crime is not being of the Islamic faith
  3. crimes against women, against minorities, against Christians and with the promoting of prejudice and racism against anyone who is not a Muslim

Verdict: guilty. Sentence: burning.

Muhammad on trial

A press release from Stand Up America, dated January 30, 2012, announced intent to judge Muhammad in International Judge Muhammad Day, at a date and time to be announced later. Issues to be decided at the trial of Muhammad include the following points:

  • Was he a prophet of God as is claimed by the religion of Islam? 
  • Or was he a pedophile? 
  • Was he a deceiver? 
  • Was he a man of peace or was he a man of violence? 
  • Did he leave behind a world religion that betters mankind and promotes the equality of mankind? 
  • Or did he leave behind a religion of violence, a religion of racism and prejudice? 
  • Did he leave behind a religion that does not promote living together in peace and harmony and disrespects others opinions and religions? 
  • Did he leave behind a religion that believes only Muslims, believers in Allah and the so-called prophet Muhammad deserve the right to live and pursue their goals in life?

    In anticipation of International Judge Muhammad Day, which is sure to be interesting & controversial, some preparation will be required. Trying Muhammad will require reference to Guillaume's The Life of Muhammad, which is the oldest and most nearly complete & authentic sira.  The current price is  $32.08  and they only have ten in stock, with more on order.  For a free, on line alternative, read  The Sealed Nectar.

    Other sources include various hadith collections and Tabari's history. To avoid the redundancy and boring detail, I recommend reading the quotes in the appendix to Craig Winn's The Prophet of Doom.  Winn has collected the most interesting tidbits from the Profit's biography, history & sunnah in one easy to access collection, sorted by topic. 

    The credibility of Islam rides on Moe's shoulders.  If Moe is discredited, Islam is discredited.  Because of this, Muslims are super sensitive to criticism of Moe.  The proposed trial has potential to be more threatening & irritating to Muslims than the infamous Motoons. 

    I expect that the domestic & international caterwauling & condemnation of the trial of Moe will far outstrip that over the trial of the Qur'an. Rev. Jones will be falsely accused of racism, defamation of Islam, defaming a Prophet and endangering our troops, national security, international peace and diplomatic efforts.

     There is one new element which was not present March 20, '11: HRC 16/18 and the Istanbul Process to implement it.  Look for the OIC, EU & UN to demand imposition of civil & criminal persecution of Jones over damages done by  any rioting that might be blamed on the trial.
