MSM won't be giving this any reporting, if at all. Doesn't meet with their Bush-bashing plans.

I plan to read the Koran and use pieces of bacon for bookmarks. Okay, I don't actually plan to read it.

I can tell you exactly how the MSM will handle this. Look for it to be front-and-center news for a very long time to come. For any good news about the WOT you'll have to look elsewhere.

I think anyone who has to touch the Koran should wear gloves and then burn the gloves afterwards.

Them Muslim insurgents blowed up their own mosque and alot of them Kurrans got blowed up too along with the ragheads reading them....

Do Muslims care about this stuff or just when amerikans take action???

Now what is the baddest way to deesecrate these funny bibles???.....A Kurran blowed up or one flushed?

So is it Koran or Quran?

Are there official instructions for handling this thing, like the "do not remove" tag on furniture? I mean, you can't use it as a pillow? Who would have known?

Do the printing presses and shipping boxes used on this "sacred text" need to be, so to speak, "kosher".

Can it be recycled, or does it need to be shipped back to Muslim Central for proper disposal, like a form of sacred toxic waste?

Since the press is so up in arms about this, they need to educate we infidels so we don't cause any more offense.

WHO gives a DAMN what ANYBODY did with or to the Quran?

The solution is to REMOVE IT FROM THE EQUATION!!!

There is NO RIGHT to it!

This is an over reaching comprimise to pretend we're not at war with Islam, "just the terrorists".
It's buy us nothing but trouble.

I'm tired of "newscasters" pretending this is "NEWS", as though we should all understand "the outrage".
Ban the book and prevent further bogus "issues".

Pls see # 11...

It is refereed to, correctly, as the Kurran.

wrong.

The way to handle these "books" is the raghead method as described in #11.

It's perfectly clear to me....
In order for us to show proper respect for the "culture" of Islam --- we have no option but to shoot every one of the detainees at GITMO...

No other options are available, now that they have shown such "disrespect" for the Koran..

Semper Fi

I thought 'CUR-ran' was acceptable too, but then realized it was an insult to canines everywhere to associate them with that filth...

No # 11 is "wrong"!

No benefit to giving it a 2nd thought.
Let them whine about not having it.
Too bad!
