Wacky quote of the week

I'd wondered about this all week. How is it that flushing a Koran is worse than raping a teenage prisoner in Abu Ghraib? Apparently, to many it is. Newsweek's analysis of the "Koran flushing" story includes this quote from a Pakistani:
"We can understand torturing prisoners, no matter how repulsive," says
computer teacher Muhammad Archad, interviewed last week by NEWSWEEK in Peshawar, Pakistan, where one of last week's protests took place. "But insulting the Qur'an is like deliberately torturing all Muslims. This we cannot tolerate."

Torture and rape? OK. Treating the Bible like a turd? No good.
