Koran Flushing, vol 100058379895

I know, I know, I'm beating this to death. This blog hasn't turned into all-Koran/all-Gitmo, but I have been waiting for a certain blogger to comment. My patience has been rewarded:

For what it's worth, I don't care at all if they're flushing Korans down the toilet. We don't whine when Muslims confiscate Bibles and destroy them, which is SOP in Saudi Arabia, and as far as I'm concerned, if Islam is really this perverted, valuing worthless paper so highly and human beings so little, then Islam needs to change.
Where is it written that the civilized West has to be tolerant and the barbaric Muslim world gets to do as it pleases? Even the most hardcore, tongue-talking charismatic Christians would refrain from rioting over the mistreatment of paper. Grow up, Muslims.
There is a rumor that Al Qaeda has suitcase nukes, and that the reason they don't use them is that they think Bush will destroy their holy sites, notably that big cube in Mecca. Given their obsession with pampering a mere book, it's not hard to believe.
Look at the difference between the U.S. and the Muslim world. Here, people get upset when the government refuses to fund a photo exhibit featuring a shot of a cross immersed in urine. There, you can be killed for peeing on a book.
It's particularly funny, given that a very high percentage of fanatical Muslims are illiterate and have no idea what's inside the book they're protecting.

Yes, it was worth the wait.
