As an atheist, it's hard for me to get personally agitated about Koran desecration. Of course, it enrages Muslims and we don't want that, but I don't have a strong personal emotional reaction. So this list of offenses just strikes me as wacky:

In other confirmed incidents, water balloons thrown by prison guards caused an unspecified number of Qurans to get wet; a guard's urine came through an air vent and splashed on a detainee and his Quran; and in a confirmed but ambiguous case a two-word obscenity was written in English on the inside cover of a Quran.

What the hell was going on over there?
