Koran desecration

Well, this is pretty normal:

Dozens of cars have been smashed, 14 people injured and 46 arrested in riots by Muslim migrants over the alleged defacing of a Koran by a policeman.

A rumour spreads about a book being damaged so these morons go apeshit. Nothing unusual there, so why am I mentioning it?

Well, the thought crossed my mind, after an edition of this twaddle is printed, what happens to the plates? Are they treated with some sort of faux reverence, or are they treated like any other worthless scrap and discarded? Melted down? Disassembled? Thrown away?

Shouldn’t these bunnies go doolally over that as well?

I have had a copy of Mo’s mouthing’s on my hard drive for years, after all, I try to keep my opinions informed, and it has been moved from computer to computer often. What is the situation when I clear down an old drive? Is deleting (destroying) a digital copy by a kufr haraam? What about when I open it in a browser or editor, creating a display on my monitor? In sheer logic doesn’t closing the browser constitute destroying the words of Almighty Allah The Merciful? Should I expect mobs of Rage Boy soundalikes rampaging through my living room, showing me mercy en mass, just because I look up a reference on screen?

Hell, what happens if I print it out? An electronic copy is sent to the printer and then deleted after the print is finished.

What is a poor infidel to do? Boy, I am so screwed.

    My desktop computer has several books on it including a Koran. It has a striped RAID array and a back-up drive – three drives. They are of course in usual fashion stack on atop the other. Now the wittering of big MO have to be placed higher than any book in the house so as you can see I’m in an odd situation. we need a ftwa on striped arrays and we need one now!

    It’s even worse than that. Whenever a person looks at something, the electrochemical impulses from the eyes are processed by the visual cortex of the brain to form an image in a way probably rather like what happens inside a computer when it displays an image of something. When he looks at something else, that image is replaced in the visual cortex by whatever is now in sight. So every time someone who has been looking at the Koran looks away from it, he’s destroying an image of God’s word.

    Fortunately, to a Muslim, only the Koran in the original Arabic is the real Koran; any translation in another language is just a paraphrase. So if you’re looking at an English version on your computer, you’re off the hook. The people who can read it in the original, not so much.

    My wife once temped at a loss-adjusters. They had a hell of a case once…

    A Rabbi’s house had been flooded badly. They had to rehouse him and his large family whilst the problems were sorted (which takes time with flooding) so they needed to get a large enough house with two kitchens within walking distance of the synagogue (he didn’t drive on Sabbath). They also had to right-off his extensive library which included some obscure and old tomes (difficult to value) and bend the rules because he had to bury them in a special ritual them being holy and all. Well everyone muddled through and he didn’t threaten to build a golem or issue all the curses in the book of Deuteronomy or anything like that.

    Actually I suspect the (by a country mile) the most common way the Qu’ran is desecrated is accidentally by Muslims. Quite a few have it on their mobile phones and every year a staggeringly large number of mobiles are nixxed by being dropped in toilets. I bet a fair few imams have seen their Nokia replete with holy texts disappear down the mosque khazi’s U-bend. I suspect they get to the Vodaphone shop pronto and never speak of it again.

  4. Hah! I will generate a series of random rock images and virtually stone you! That makes as much sense anything else these fuckwits do…

    I saw a play in Tel-Aviv once, about a Jew in Ireland at the time of the Troubles. The Black & Tans wreck his place while searching for an IRA man; a copy of the Torah is desecrated, but he offers no resistance.
    The IRA man asks: “When he threw your book on the floor, weren’t you angry?”
    Jew: “Of course I was angry – but our holy books have been thrown around so often they are used to it”.

    It was a good play, about violent and non-violent resistance.

    No doubt if a Muslim does it it’s OK, it’s only wrong when a kuffar does it (after all, everything an infidel does is automatically an insult to Islam, except when he dies at the hand of a Jihadist).
