in response to reader comment: Burning the Qur'an: Burn the Qur'an day, the original

Hi Lactantius

>Dhimmi no more mentioned the burning of Qur'anic manuscripts by the Caliph Uthman, and I think it well worthwhile commenting at some length on that original "burn the Qur'an day."

You forgot to mention that some of the Quranic material that was written on yummy palm leaves was, as per the islamic historical tradition, eaten by hungry goats! Allah's words were eaten by hungry goats! Masha'allah and i'm not kidding you and this is one of the reasons given by the Islamic historical tradition about the reason for the fact that we will not find ayat al-rajm or the verse or the stoning in the Qur'an! Oh the other reason? It was burnt by al-khalifa Uthman in his burn the Qur'an day and what a scandal

So may be we should call it the original "burn the Qur'an and feed a hungry goat day." So it seems that pastor Jones did not know about goats nontheless he is in good company with the likes of al-khlaifa Uthman minus the hungry goats

And who says that islam is not ridiculous
