I just ran across this from, presumably, a Muslim intellectual printed in a Boston newspaper:
To the editor:
About abusing the Qur'an. Very disturbing to any Muslim (which I am), Christian or Jew (Hindu or Buddhist).

But Christians and Jews, labeled in the Qur'an as the 'People of the Book,' don't have to fear the worst - that the Muslims will flush their holy book, the Bible or the Torah, down the toilet just to be mean. Muslims, not even the most hateful of the bunch would ever do that. I guarantee it. Why?

Because Muslims believe in the Bible, the Ten Commandments, the Psalms of David, the Gospel of Jesus. Believing in one God, the Books of that one God (revelation), the Prophets of that God, the Angels, and the Day of Judgment, are the five articles of faith in Islam. So, no. The unimaginable, no matter how mean-spirited, barbaric, or ignorant the West (following the leadership of GW Bush) persists on being, we can all rest assured, the worst won't happen.

Wow. Where to start?

First of all, Mary, the "worst" is not that a Bible will be desecrated by Muslims. The worst is that human beings will be slaughtered by Muslims. I wish you could guarantee that this wouldn't happen as easily as you can guarantee that no Muslim would possibly flush a Bible down the toilet.

And since Muslims are slaughtering other human beings daily, I can't imagine such a guarantee.

But Mary, you certainly haven't been following the news. Muslims have not only flushed Bibles down the toilet - they've flushed Korans too! And Saudis destroy thousands of (non-Wahhabi) Korans and Christian Bibles as well. They have also famously destroyed Hindu temples, churches and the Buddhist statues.

In fact, it is difficult to find anything that fanatic Muslims have not destroyed when given the chance - buildings, people, societies, peace, religious symbols, each other.

No, Mary, I'm not staying up nights worrying about Muslims destroying Bibles. If that was the worst that they did, the world would be a better place. For a Muslim (MS no less) to call the West "mean-spirited, barbaric, or ignorant", without mentioning a word about the depravity of a Muslim world that makes heroes out of the 9/11 hijackers, makes one wonder about the quality of your education.
