Newsweek and the lie that exploded.

Way to go Newsweek, because of your "unsure", and wrong, source on the qur'an toilet flushing you've precipitated the deaths of at least 15 and have just put the lives of our soldiers in greater danger.

But hey, why let not having the truth get in the way of degrading the US Military and inflaming the muslim world to hate us even more (if that's possible).

I mean as soon as Isikoff heard qur'an (koran) and toilet I bet his ears perked up and he thought there's no reason a muslim would put his koran in the toilet, so it must have been put in there by the US in order to shake up the terrorist detainees. He must have said to himself "I've got to tell this to the entire world I'm sure the muslims will want to know about this."

Well, he was right about that the muslims did want to read this in print, more to the point the Taliban really wanted to read, or should I say use it; The Taliban has been trying to spread similar stories, but have no credibility.

It wasn't like throwing gas on a fire, it was like tossing a propane tank into a fire and shooting it with both barrels of a shotgun loaded with 00 buck!!

What did he think the muslims wouldn't react to this?

Humm, Let me think, how do you piss off a muslim?

There are many ways. You could write something bad about islam.....(Salman Rushdie comes to mind).

You could point out that Muhammad was a pedophile. [According to the muslim history Muhammad, 50, took a wife, Aisha, when she was six years old.] ( but when you've got a Pakistani court validating the marriage between a 25yr old and a 12 yr old, I don't think they really care about raping children.)

You could tell them that Christ is the son of God and not, as they say, the son of Mary.

So since they get all pissed off by just words I can only imagine what they'd do if you tore up a koran. Something Isikoff didn't do.

I can understand why this would infuriate muslims, I'd be pissed if people were tearing up Bibles. (and my guess is that would be an ACLU sponsored event, at a public school.)

BUT WHEN THAT'S NOT WHAT HAPPEND AND YOU REPORT IT AS TRUTH, AS WE SEE IN THIS CASE, PEOPLE DIE!

It seems there was one report of pages of a koran pages being stuffed into a toilet BY THE DETAINEE and not by any guards!!

(5-12) Gen. Myers: "They have looked through the logs, the interrogation logs, and they cannot confirm yet that there were ever the case of the toilet incident, except for one case, a log entry, which they still have to confirm, where a detainee was reported by a guard to be ripping pages out of a Koran and putting in the toilet to stop it up as a protest. But not where the U.S. did it."

So does anyone think those that rioted will hear this and even if they do the damage is done and you can't undo it.

And if Isikoff had known how the pages got stuffed in the toilet would he have printed it? Would he have tried to show that these holy warrior muslims fighting jihad against the infidel were the ones desecrating their holy book?

Now that's a reaction from the muslim world I'd like to see.
