    Great headline again at The Guardian, Author!

  2. I’ve been revelling in the London reception for Joseph Ratzinger all day, and this just puts the icing on the cake. Thanks again, Author.

  3. Andrew Hall says:

    I hope those poor Korans are kept in bomb proof safes!

    There should be times allocated for the Korans to come out of the safes and there would be no bombing allowed until the Korans are back in.

    Just brilliant!

  5. Derek Beggs says:

    Just an idea,
    why not give the soldiers in Afghanistan body armour with little Qu’rans on it.

    Might save some lives.

  6. I like that they are in bed together. That’s cool.

    I really like the tuft of hair over Mo’s sheet. Looks like a twin to his unibrow….

  9. MrGronk says:

    The Israelis have had a somewhat similar idea to stop bus bombings – hanging small bags of pork scratchings from bus ceilings so the bomber’s body fragments will be defiled in the blast. While Jews find pork icky as well, there’s an opt-out rule in the torah (loosely reinterpreted in this case) whereby you can ingest non-kosher food to save your life.

    @MrGronk: Seriously? Now THAT’S the weirdest info I’ve heard in a long time. The body fragments desecrated as they fly past pork scratchings….

    The sad truth is that this insanity might actually work. I think we can do nothing but laugh…

  12. Stephen Turner says:

    What fanatics, burning down the whole school in order to protect the girls from the Koran.

  13. Dan says:

    I think we should arrange a re-enactment of 9/11 on 11-Sep-2011 by flying burning Korans into models of the twin towers made of Bibles.

  14. Ketil W.Grevstad says:

    heeh lets burn the koran and see what happens

  15. Daoloth says:

    @Gronk & Derek. I seem to rememebr a Russian threat to bury terrorists in pigs skin so that they would be defiled and not make it to heaven.

  16. Gat says:

    Abybody here know for certain whether the muslims left a copy (or copies) of Koran in the mosque? Just curious …

  17. dysamoria says:

    Any theology that values inanimate objects over human lives is a theology of evil.
