Here is the way the U. S. government has of dealing with the Koran:
1. Clean gloves will be put on in full view of the detainees prior to handling.But at the same time it and its representatives are waxing eloquent about the care with which the Koran is to be handled, how does it treat Bibles?
2. Two hands will be used at all times when handling the Koran in manner signaling respect and reverence. Care should be used so that the right hand is the primary one used to manipulate any part of the Koran due to the cultural association with the left hand. Handle the Koran as if it were a fragile piece of delicate art.
We go now to the blog Rogers Rules for a report:
Bibles were sent to U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan. But the U.S. government determined that the presence of Bibles in this “devoutly Muslim country” might inflame the natives. So they burned them. Why did they burn them? Because it is military policy to burn its trash.
So, the Bibles, according to U.S. policy, are trash, garbage, and it’s OK to burn them.
