Obama "Pledges to Punish Troops Responsible .. for burning Korans"

Obama Sends Letter To Afghanistan Apologizing For Koran Burning, Pledges To Punish Troops Responsible…
KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) – The Afghan president’s office says it has received a letter from President Obama formally apologizing for the burning of Qurans at a U.S. military base in Afghanistan.
The statement from President Hamid Karzai’s office says the U.S. ambassador delivered the letter on Thursday.
In the letter, which is quoted in the statement, Obama expresses his “deep regret for the reported incident” and offers his “sincere apologies.”
According to the statement, Obama wrote: “The error was inadvertent; I assure you that we will take the appropriate steps to avoid any recurrence, to include holding accountable those responsible.”

Bee's Note:

Has anyone actually searched to find out the proper way to dispose of a Koran?  Using "Google" this morning, there is hardly anything available that gives instructions on how to respectfully dispose of a Koran.  However, there are numerous sites explaining how to dispose of old Bibles.  And, just as we've heard Obama speak of the "holy" Koran, the Christians oftentimes refer to their Bibles as The "Holy" Bible.  

Bibles are rarely, if ever, simply tossed in the trash.  Families will donate older Bibles to the church, libraries, charity organizations, and in the old days, would burn under the instructions of their Church, before considering throwing out with the trash, a Holy Bible.

The troops burning of the Korans was done out of respect - they did not throw them out in a trash heap!

I find this remarkable, considering it is the Koran that teaches its followers to behead, murder, torture, and slaughter by the thousands Christians, Jews, Buddhists and all "infidels", according to the unholy teachings of the Koran.  It was the followers of the Koran that attacked the United States on Sept. 11, 2001.  It is the Islamic terrorists (followers of the Koran) that our troops are fighting in the fields of Afghanistan - for over 10 years.  And yet, our troops did what they thought was "respectful" in disposing of the Book of Hate - the Koran.

President Obama, in not coming to the defense of our troops is despicable!  Just another example of this president bowing and appeasing the followers of Islam, when he should be defending and supporting America's troops.

What's the Proper Way to Dispose of a Koran?

Something to chew on.

Terry Jones may have called off his Koran burning in Florida, but Iraqpundit writes that someone still owes the preacher a debt of gratitude:
Burning the Koran is only respectful way of disposing of the Holy book. For example, if a student is learning calligraphy and copies pages from the Koran, he is not allowed to throw away the papers. He must burn them out of respect for the Koran. So actually the Florida man is doing the Muslims a favor by disposing of several copies of the Koran in a proper way.
This reminds me of when I was studying in Cairo several years ago and my doorman showed me another way to dispose of the sacred book properly:
[The doorman] discovered in my garbage an exam I had taken that tested knowledge of certain ayat (or verses) from the Quran, and he reproached me for putting the holy book in the trash. I said that it was not the Quran itself, but only words taken from it. His response was astonishing: "You can either burn your exam," he explained, "or do this …" At which point, he tore off a verse, rolled it up, put it into his mouth, and swallowed it.


How to Properly Dispose of a Bible


    • 1
      Give the Bible away if it is not in bad condition. Find a friend or relative who wants it. Or contact a local church or public library who could use it. You can also make a posting on Craigslist for a free Bible.  
    • 2
      Get the Bible restored if it has particular meaning to you or the only reason you are throwing it away is damage. Prices vary depending on the repairs needed. If the damage is small, it can cost less to repair than replace.

    • 3
      Burn the Bible if you are Catholic. This is the appropriate way to dispose of missals and other holy books as well.
    • 4
      Bury the old Bible. This is an alternative for Catholics and also suggested for Lutherans. Once the Bible has burned, bury the ashes. Jews bury the Torah in order to discard it respectfully.
    • 5
      Recycle the Bible to follow the advice of the American Bible Society.

By the way, who informed Islam's followers that the Korans were burned?
