Red Cross Told US of Koran Incidents
By Cam Simpson and Mark Silva
The Chicago Tribune,Thursday 19 May 2005

Washington - The International Committee of the Red Cross documented what it called credible information about US personnel disrespecting or mishandling Korans at the Guantanamo Bay detention facility and pointed it out to the Pentagon in confidential reports during 2002 and early 2003, an ICRC spokesman said Wednesday.

Representatives of the ICRC, who have played a key role in investigating abuse allegations at the facility in Cuba and other US military prisons, never witnessed such incidents firsthand during on-site visits, said Simon Schorno, an ICRC spokesman in Washington.

But ICRC delegates, who have been granted access to the secretive camp since January 2002, gathered and corroborated enough similar, independent reports from detainees to raise the issue multiple times with Guantanamo commanders and with Pentagon officials, Schorno said in an interview Wednesday.

Following the ICRC's reports, the Defense Department command in Guantanamo issued almost three pages of detailed, written guidelines for treatment of Korans. Schorno said ICRC representatives did not receive any other complaints or document similar incidents following the issuance of the guidelines on Jan. 19, 2003.

The American people should be informed that merely handling the Koran could constitute desecration in the eyes of the Islamic zealot

In regard to Newsweek's apology for its false Koran-in-the-toilet story, Gary Bauer, president of American Values, has commented, "I wonder if anyone at Newsweek recalled that it was the U.S. Government that supplied Korans to the Muslim prisoners in the first place?" The same question applies to the Post. Bauer notes that the U.S. military gives the prisoners access to their holy book while the terrorists cut peoples' heads off. But guess who gets most of the media criticism?

Obviously our troops don't need instructions on how to handle a Bible. Besides, 99% of us would be offended with such rules that essentially dealt with the Bible like it was some kind of pagan idol.

At the moment we have a war on and the funny little foreign people who wear bedsheets have to be kept pacified insofar as is possible. Wait until after the war to move further on this problem.

To be fair, I doubt that there would be any need for guidelines about handling the Bible because America's enemies don't carry them.

Seems to me that since we infidels are too dirty and or corrupt to handle their book maybe we shouldn't be giving them out.

When handling the Koran, the following SOP is to be observed:

1. Grasp Koran in right hand;
2. Hold "willy" with left hand;
3. Urinate onto Koran until bladder is empty.

All possible care is to be taken so that urine stream does not splash onto the right hand.

I don’t think so. Christians know it isn’t the Bible that is the important item – it’s the message inside.

Why great consideration is given to their comic-book, I don’t know, but it is an abomination (the act of treating it “respectfully”).

How to Handle the Koran

Exceeded only by the stupidity in handing them out to begin with.

I am not inclined to wait. This is not just silly, it is dangerous. Civil behavior is viewed solely as a sign of weakness. Our press, as well as our leaders seem to be oblivious to this historical reality.

I need to start complaining now. Loudly and clearly. Before it gets any worse,

If I can just figure out whom to complain o...

There would be no outrage over mishandling the Bible, not to the extent there is over the Koran. Our courts have ruled that nothing is sacred. That's why it always strikes me as odd to see protesters stomping on painted American flags. They obviously think this country has objects of respect the same as themselves. Our highest court rules that we can stomp on and burn our own flag in protest, a disgrace in my opinion. Our courts have ruled that burning crosses and displaying illicit art work are acts of free expression. They have forced public schools to remove our country's founding documents and our Pledge of Allegiance from the classroom because of "religious separation." What's wrong with people who can see our own citizens decapitated and not want to rid the world of these murderers, yet rage over the treatment of a book, only to promote their own political agenda. Despicable. They have no honor. They're as guilty as if they held the knife themselves.

But how many more Koran's will be destroyed when blown up inside mosques attacked by Muslim terrorists?

What's so big deal about the Koran which was written by Mohammed who has never made a miracle in his entire life. Compare that to the new testament that is full of stories about how Christ cured many sick people, multiplied fish and resurrected on the third day.

Isn't this liberals a bit cocoooooooo?
