'Palestinian Prisoner Destroyed Quran'
Ynet News ^ | June 19, 2005 | Raanan Ben-Zur

Posted on 06/19/2005 3:28:20 PM PDT by West Coast Conservative

A female Palestinian security prisoner in Ashkelon’s Shikma Prison tore up pages from a copy of the Quran and threw them toward the toilet during a routine search Sunday, the Israel Prison Service said.

The 22-year-old detainee from a village near Hebron is an Islamic Jihad member who was arrested three months ago in suspicion of hostile terror activity.

She resisted a routine search by a female guard, and then took out torn Quran pages from her skirt and hurled them toward the toilet.

The guard handed the torn Quran pages to the prison’s director, and Prison Service officials said she showed heightened sensitivity to the holy Islamic book.

“Security prisoners are permitted to keep Qurans, and the Prison Service provides them with the books, but tearing pages out of the book and throwing them in the bathroom is blasphemy and hinders the prisoners’ right to conduct religious rites,” a Prison Service official said.

The Palestinian prisoner was eventually transferred to the Hasharon Prison as planned.

A month ago Palestinian security prisoners detained in the Megiddo Prison claimed prison guards tore up pages from Quran copies during searches of their cells.

Yet, the media will make the guard out to be the villain.

I hadn't thought of it that way. Could that be considered "progress"?

ASHKELON - A female Palestinian security prisoner in Ashkelon’s Shikma Prison tore up pages from a copy of the Quran and threw them toward the toilet during a routine search Sunday, the Israel Prison Service said.

snip

However, a special investigative committee found the prisoners themselves had torn the Quran copies in an attempt to stir controversy.

According to the Prison Service, prisoner representatives apologized for the incident, saying it was a Hamas-affiliated minority that carried out the act.

Good.. now muslims around the world can start killing one another. And we, the infidels, can simply watch.

Ain't life grand.

If you'd like to be on or off this middle east/political ping list, please FR mail me.

Israel might wish to reconsider.

Ten years later the US will reconsider.

Another ten, the MSM will cease reporting about Koran desecrations.

AAAhhhhh.

2025!

No more Koran news.

Hope the "detainees" are still at Gitmo eating orange chicken!

Koran destroyed?
Why should we care?
Perhaps we should celebrate the prisoner's epiphany.

I find the constant reference to the Koran as the "Holy Koran" offensive and uncalled for by "infidels".....

Correct; but the Islamic law was, women shouldn't touch the quran because they could be unclean. They are also not allowed to read it. The Quran is suppose to be interpreted to them.

I can't believe the world in which we live. These monsters have been kidnapping, murdering, blasting, burning, and beheading innocent people for years. Then graduating into flying civilian commercial aircraft into buildings, murdering thousands of innocent men, women, and children, laying siege to schools and blasting and murdering more hundreds of innocent children. And causing at least 19 of the current 20-some armed conflicts around the world, and preaching mayhem and murder to their mindless, hateful, pathetic, useless followers -- and yet all we hear about is non-stop nonsense about their DAMNED F*ING KORANS!

There, I feel much better now.

Oh yeah. Sorry to be so unseeeeensative, but, PS:

During Ramadan one year over here ~ a local was explaining to me that all Muslims must fast from sunrise to sunset.

I said I saw a few ladies who were not fasting and he told me that they were um... menstuating.

So each time you see a Muslim lady who is not fasting, you can visualize the reason why. ewwww...

But men are allowed to hold it when they are beheading an innocent civilian. Such a civilized culture.

Ah no. It is forbidden to touch or carry the Qur'an while one is in a state of impurity. Some scholars won't let women touch the Quran at all because they could be unclean. Some teach that women have to have the Quran interpreted to them.

The extremist intrepretations are followed in places like Palestine.

Something tells me that the Libs in Israel will not be calling for the immediate closing of Ashkelon’s Shikma Prison, despite the rampant Quran abuse...

So what was the excuse for their 9-11 brethren drinking alcohol and partying in strip bars in the days prior to their attack? It could well be that, if you see muslim women eating during any given muslim religious period (no pun intended), they just want to stuff their faces. Don't forget Occam's Razor.

Now I'm fasting, too, you really wrecked my appetite! ;)

So, the solution is obvious here, this woman should be given a full pardon, and a public release on the streets. Problem solved.
