Well now the Pentagon finally admits that there was desecration of the Koran at Guantanamo Bay: one Koran was kicked by a U.S. soldier while others got wet from water balloons. What will Andrew Sullivan say?
We know what Charles Krauthammer thinks: “Gitmo grovel: enough already”
On the scale of human crimes, where, say, 10 is the killing of 2,973 innocent people in one day and 0 is jaywalking, this ranks as perhaps a 0.01.Read the whole thing. The Islamofascists scream when a soldier carries a Koran with one hand, but shrug when a mosque is destroyed by a suicide bomber.
Moreover, what were the Korans doing there in the first place? The very possibility of mishandling Korans arose because we gave them to each prisoner. What kind of crazy tolerance is this? Is there any other country that would give a prisoner precisely the religious text that that prisoner and those affiliated with him invoke to justify the slaughter of innocents? If the prisoners had to have reading material, I would have given them the book "Portraits 9/11/01" -- vignettes of the lives of those massacred on Sept. 11.
