Another typical media double-standard

Many of you, no doubt, have heard about the outrage in accordance with Newsweek's report of the Q'uran being flushed down the toilet at Guantanamo Bay as "incentive" for prisoners to talk, which it has now retracted. However, I came across this article, which discusses that very little--if any--media time was devoted to the desecration of the Bible, being used as toilet paper by the Palestinian terrorists who took over the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem 3 years ago...Yet another glaring imbalance by the media elite. Here is another letter to the editor that also addresses the discrepancy in how the media treats different holy books.

On another note, here is another article that puts this whole incident more in perspective re: the Islamic reaction, as the author states: "I have no interest either in defending Newsweek or in justifying interrogators' methods, but let's be blunt: Those rampaging in Afghanistan didn't need a reason to riot; they needed an excuse."

Here's another fiery commentary by Ann Coulter on the subject, as well as from Hal Lindsey.
