Watch for the worldwide protests against this desecration — no wait, there won’t be any, because it is perfectly fine for Islamic jihadists to desecrate the Qur’an in the cause of Islam. “Don’t pick up Quran in Pakistan, it could be a bomb,” from the Associated Press, January 31 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):
Militants in Pakistan have found clever ways to hide homemade bombs. They’ve been strapped to children’s bicycles, hidden inside water jugs and even hung in tree branches. But the most shocking place that Brig. Basim Saeed has heard of such a device being planted was inside a hollowed-out book made to look like a Quran, Islam’s holy book.
A soldier who went to pick up the book from the floor was killed when it exploded.
“Normally if that book is lying somewhere on the floor, you tend to pick it up immediately just for respect,” said Saeed, the chief instructor at a school training Pakistani forces how to detect the so-called improvised explosive devices, which have become increasingly popular in wars in Iraq, Afghanistan and the insurgency in Pakistan’s northwest, near the Afghan border.
Saeed and other instructors at the military’s Counter IED, Explosives and Munitions School say it is important to constantly come up with new ways to prevent such homemade bombs because that’s exactly what the militants are doing.
“Terrorists are also very brainy,” Saeed said. “They are using different techniques to defeat our efforts also. So we need to be very proactive.”
Brainy? But the government and mainstream media line is that they’re poor and uneducated. Surely they must be telling the truth, right?
