So Muhammad really didn’t marry a goat? Their first clue should have been when they spelled Koran wrong.

- Iranian publishers are complaining that cost-saving plans

Funny, some of the customers of our small business got the same results by taking the work and moving it to China (or Mexico or wherever).

It’s not always about the money. Sometimes it really pays to have something done right the first time even if it cost more up-front.

But hey, what do I know ....

This is outrageous, and intolerable. The Iranians should storm the Chinese embassy and kidnap and humiliate their personnel until the Chinese apologize for this insult and make restitution.

Well, that’s been happening in Bibles for years. Just open any one that’s not Textus Receptus based.

Well, doesn’t such sacrilege require that Iran declare jihad on China and go kick their asses?

But what about all the OTHER errors in the Koran,
like Mohammed being the last prophet and all that
bilge.

I mean how would anyone know if they all have
errors in them, garbage in garbage out.

What happens when they find out how much melamine is
in it.

It’s true though, those folks in China eat a lot of
pork, sometimes for lunch, some times for breakfast
and they don’t wear rubber gloves assembling those
Qurans, just saying.

Interesting how the “Islamic” Republic entrusted “infidel Chinese” with printing copies of the Qur’an! As for “cost-saving plans”, they could quit paying Hezbollah & Hamas; that’d be real cost-saving. The common pattern being that the Islamic Republic never fails to financially support its partners in crime.

Anyhow, hope the Chinese, by error, included a few of their own ancient proverbs in those copies. They’d be infinitely more illuminating to read than the Islamic Mein Kampf.

They'd still be OK as toilet paper, right?
