It almost defies description, if it's true. What would many Americans conclude if they heard that Americans captured in a Muslim country had to watch a crucifix set on fire — or if Jews capture had to watch the destruction of their holy Torah?
Arabs desecrated Joseph’s Tomb, destroying an irreplaceable archeological and religious site. This is a thousand times worse of a crime than destroying a book that someone bought at Borders. Yet from the reaction in America, not very many people cared at all.
Marc at USS Neverdock expresses similar thoughts when complains that the media ignored a story about Palestinians using Bibles for toilet paper:
Where's the outrage? Where's the indignation? Why is the world media so hell bent on portraying Islam as some kind of sacrosanct religion, better and above the rest? Is their book somehow holier than everybody else's? Not bloody likely!
