Senior Tunisian Leader Calls for Boycotting US Goods to Protest Quran Burning

A senior Tunisian Sunni leader urged all Muslims across the world to boycott the great satan US goods and stop their energy cooperation, including crude deals, with Washington and its allies in a move to show their strong protest against the desecration of the Holy Quran at a US base in Afghanistan.

“In my opinion, Muslims should boycott all the US goods and rely on God and use their home-made goods in a bid to improve their own economy and dip the foreigners’ trade into crisis more deeply,” Abdolnasser Al-Khanisi told FNA on Saturday.

Noting that certain Arab countries’ companionship with the US has legalized the country’s regime, he said, “If we cut our crude aids to the US, then it will surrender to us and will accompany Muslims.”

Last week, a senior Egyptian legislator had also called on the Arab countries to voice their protest at the desecration of the Holy Quran at a US base in Afghanistan by cutting relations with Washington.

“The US militaries’ burning of Quran is an insult to Islam and Muslims and a new position should be adopted against the US administration which has done nothing but apologizing,” Ahmad Abdul-Al told FNA on Tuesday.

He called on all parliaments of the Arab states to cut relations with Washington until the culprits of this action are tried and Muslims’ rights are restored.

Dozens of people have been killed and hundreds wounded in Afghan protests against the desecration of the Holy Quran since it first emerged that copies of Quran and religious materials had been thrown into a fire pit used to burn garbage at Bagram Air Field.

Americans have set fire to the copies of the Holy Quran on several occasions thus far. Angry Afghans have staged increasing protests across the war-torn country since the great satan US troops burnt the Holy Quran in their base in Afghanistan.
