I have a question. Who is responsible for the library at Gitmo? Why do the prisoners get hold of the Koran in the first place? Maybe Amazon is one of the suppliers? Read Irshad Manji's article, Why don't we Muslims grow up? and Jeff Jacoby's article, Why Islam is disrespected.


UPDATE 05/20/05:

Have a look at the services by the chaplain at the U.S. Naval Station, Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

I asked for permission from Steve Rogers to publish the below mentioned message. The post was a comment to another member (T.M.) on Harry Binswanger's mailing list:

More importantly, the truth of the charge is really irrelevant to the larger question of whether the media should be airing the details of psychological techniques used on prisoners of war.

The truth of the matter is that the administration has agreed to supply copies of the Koran to the prisoners, and agreed to the terms that *only* military chaplains are allowed to touch it, and then only when wearing gloves (according to Fox news). *This* is the scandal that should be on the front page.
