What if it Happened to a Bible?

Here's a link and an excerpt:

Newsweek says Koran desecration report is wrong

By David Morgan

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Newsweek magazine said on Sunday it erred in a May 9 report that U.S. interrogators desecrated the Koran at Guantanamo Bay, and apologized to the victims of deadly Muslim protests sparked by the article.
Editor Mark Whitaker said the magazine inaccurately reported that U.S. military investigators had confirmed that personnel at the detention facility in Cuba had flushed the Muslim holy book down the toilet.

The report sparked angry and violent protests across the Muslim world from Afghanistan, where 16 were killed and more than 100 injured, to Pakistan to Indonesia to Gaza. In the past week it was condemned in Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Bangladesh, Malaysia and by the Arab League.

On Sunday, Afghan Muslim clerics threatened to call for a holy war against the United States.

"We regret that we got any part of our story wrong, and extend our sympathies to victims of the violence and to the U.S. soldiers caught in its midst," Whitaker wrote in the magazine's latest issue, due to appear on U.S. newsstands on Monday.

The weekly news magazine said in its May 23 edition that the information had come from a "knowledgeable government source" who told Newsweek that a military report on abuse at Guantanamo Bay said interrogators flushed at least one copy of the Koran down a toilet in a bid to make detainees talk."

OK, here's the deal: What if it was a Bible that had been flushed?

Would there have been riots, killings, and injuries?

The answer simply is: NO.


The answer, again, is simple: Christianity is actually a religion of peace.

There are those that would cite the Crusades as evidence that Christianity is not a religion of peace. However, Christianity has evolved since then. Islam has not.

Name the last time Christianity mounted a "jihad".

Islam, however, continues (it seems) looking for an excuse to go on a jihad, or atleast sit idle while certain elements hijack their faith.

My contention is that if Islam were TRULY a religion of peace, those riots would NEVER HAVE HAPPENED.
