US Government Faces Responsibility For Example Set
The Obama administration's foreign excursions against Muslim countries like in Afghanistan and Yemen, using drone attacks, covert operations, full-scale invasions, and the US abuses at Guantanamo Bay, Abu Ghrib, and Bagram prisons, has set an example of intolerance for American citizens. The recent threatened Koran burning by American Pastor Terry Jones is reflective of that intolerance. In terms of democracy, the American politicians should be accountable to the same laws as its citizens, rather than have a virtual free reign in their foreign policies and conduct.
Having said that, Obama and his administration would be better off pointing the finger at themselves and their foreign conduct, than condemning the US pastor who has been shown a way of intolerance.
