Watch for CAIR to be up in arms over this. Watch for international Muslim rioting. It’s desecration! It’s even worse than the Pace University Qur’an in the toilet, which led to two felony charges, or the Guantanamo fictional Qur’an flushing, which led to riots around the world!
Except, of course, for one thing: the perpetrators here are almost certainly Muslims themselves. Watch, therefore, for this story to fade quickly, without Muslim comment.
