Do/can Muslims Desecrate copies of the Koran?

in response to reader comment: HOW Muslims Desecrate the Koran

Is covering the Koran with fecies considered desecration? I hope so in all cases. Every time a suicide-bomber blows up himself he takes a number of other muslims with him. He causes the spilling of their intestines over the area around their own body parts. Doesn't every good muslim carry a copy of the Koran and / or his beads? Won't those copies of the Koran be desecrated by their own blown up body parts (their own fecies)?

Don't claim that 'in this case there is no desecration'. Either the Koran is desecrated when feces contacts the 'holy book' or it doesn't.

Why is this argument never mentioned?
