The militant Islamic Jihad on Wednesday presented pictures of torn copies of the Islamic holy book, the Quran, claimed they were taken inside an Israeli prison and said soldiers were responsible for the desecration. Israel denied the charge and said the pictures were a fabrication.
The Islamic Jihad transmitted the pictures by e-mail to a reporter in the West Bank. They show two Qurans with torn pages. The militants said prisoners took the pictures with cellular telephones sent them electronically to militant leaders.
The militants said Wednesday that soldiers desecrated six or seven Qurans as they searched Palestinian prisoners' cells at the Megiddo jail in northern Israel early Tuesday. The prisoners were outside the cells at the time but could see what was going on, the Islamic Jihad militants said.
The charges closely followed a report in Newsweek _ later retracted _ that American soldiers flushed a Quran down the toilet at the Guantanamo Bay prison in Cuba. The report set off deadly riots in the Muslim world.
The Pentagon later issued a report of its own in which the military acknowledged five instances of mistreatment of the Quran at Guantanamo Bay.
The charges against Israeli soldiers originally surfaced on Tuesday, when prisoners charged that soldiers tore three Qurans and stepped on them. In a later version, they said soldiers ripped pages out of one Quran. ADVERTISEMENT
The Israeli Prisons Authority had its own conflicting versions on Tuesday as well. At first, a spokesman said that as a soldier searched an old Quran, pages fell from it, and he put them back.
Later that day, the authority showed reporters the book they said was at the center of the affair. The pages that were replaced were larger than those in the rest of the book, and the Prisons Authority concluded the whole matter was a fabrication by the Palestinian prisoners.
On Wednesday, Prisons Authority official Orit Stelser said the pictures and new charges were fabricated.
During the search on Tuesday morning, soldiers confiscated dozens of cellular phones, forbidden among the prisoners. Stelser said it was unlikely that there were many left behind to take such pictures.
"They have staged things like this in the past," she said. "This is staged." She noted the early, conflicting stories and said, "If there were really torn Qurans (Tuesday), they would have presented them then. There are no more books, period."
The pictures transmitted Wednesday showed Qurans with several pages torn in the middle. It was impossible to tell from the pictures themselves where they were taken or when.

1st of all if that really happened y are they so angry its only paper and ink
2nd it only shows a torn quran does not show where or when it happened i can find a quran tear it take a pic of it then send it to BBC and say that israel did it lol
IMO it needs to be scanned for finger prints , see if it gets ne matches even if it did show positive matches doesnt mean that they tore it maybe they were just reading it doesnt prove nething

How convenient for inmates to have cell phones equipped with the camera option.

Back in the day this is an act of war, and still should be. Muslim leaders and nations of today are too weak to defend their people and their religion.
Its a shame.

I cannot believe how stupid and mindless some people are. Ready to believe anything. No form of critical thought. They needed a dictator as they cannot think for themselves.

Hot off the presses…..
Not only were they able to send pictures, they also took a video of another desecration of the Quran…….
Proof that they did indeed flush the Quran!
Warning very bad treatment of the Quran!
Not work appropriate!

(CNSNews.com) -- The Saudi government has added its voice to allegations that authorities in the kingdom routinely destroy Bibles.
"As a matter of official policy, the government either incinerates or dumps Bibles, crosses and other Christian paraphernalia," the Saudi Institute said in an article posted on its website.
"Although considered as holy in Islam and mentioned in the Koran dozens of times, the Bible is banned in Saudi Arabia, and is confiscated and destroyed by government officials," "It's a very well-known fact that if you have a Bible at customs when you enter the airport, and if they find the Bible, that the Bible is taken and put in the shredder," he said in an interview this week.
"If you have more than one Bible you will be taken into custody, and if you have a quantity of Bibles you will be given 70 lashes for sure - you could even be executed."
How interesting, no staged mass demonstrations, no organizes extremist calls for holy war, no national cry for death to Arabs.

Palestinians used Bible as toilet paper '
WorldNetDaily ^ | May 18, 2005 | WorldNetDaily.com
While Muslims have responded with deadly outrage to the
now-retracted report by Newsweek of alleged Quran
desecration by U.S. interrogators, there was little
outcry three years ago when Islamic terrorists holed up
in Bethlehem's Church of the Nativity used
the Bible as toilet paper.
Yet another great example of the Islamist duplicity. These are the very people who accuse us of 'disrespect' and 'intolerance'. Oh, and just for the record: strangely, nobody got killed over this Bible desecration.
How interesting, no staged mass demonstrations, no organized extremist calls for holy war, no national cry for death to Arabs. And no mention of this by Islamic leaders at all...

I think the discrimination of the quoran is a type psychological attack on all muslims around the world and should be encountred by a serious the retaliation.

Israel has its citizens blown apart and you are worried about some stupid book? Does not seem right.

He hurt my feelings.
In all seriousness, compared to a human life, it is a stupid book. That does not make me racist. I just have some common sense.

And God will assure you a place in Holy Heaven because you killed a man that destroyed a supposively sacred book wrote by man and not even God?
I think your the one that will go burning in hell.

Good point. Also backs up the book vs human life.

Secondly, read what the punishment for blasphemy is in the religions of Christianity, Judaism, and Islam.

Do you have a real response or does it really make sense to you to kill someone over a book?
06-13-2005, 02:25 PM #34
I know my mom is my mom I look like her! Scientifically we have the same DNA
Do you have proof that Mohamed spoke with God, or God told Jesus, or Abraham something!
Do we have proof that God inspired the book of "God" or just a nice scam to be a leader, juror, general, mayor and dictator over some fools that are not able to master their own live? Religion is the opiate of the masses, damn right!

No offense but I'm not downloading anything that you put up.
"If I saw that in person I wouldnt be able to control myself."
Just one of the many differences between you and me. Religious zealots of any type are not good for the world.
