Get over it! It's JUST a book!
In the guardian yesterday
"The commander of US troops in Iraq has been forced to apologise to local leaders after an American soldier used a copy of the Qur'an for target practice.
A bullet-holed and graffiti-scrawled edition of the Islamic holy book was discovered by Iraqi police last week....."
".....Before he went the unnamed staff sergeant apologised to the military calling his actions "shortsighted, very reckless and irresponsible — but not malicious". LINK
This is a problem caused DIRECTLY by the insane belief in the ridiculous belief systems to which humanity clings.
NOBODY would have raised an eyebrow if he had shot up a 'Harry Potter' or even a Shakespeare!
This is offensive ONLY because of the belief that these books are in some way more valuable.
Come on guys it's not worth getting all bent out of shape over!
Books are man made items, reproduced in their thousands by machinery in a factory!
They are just a means of transmission of message within the text.
The media transmitting that message is irrelevant!
So, My opinion - Get over it! It's JUST a book!
