Endless Merry - go - round
Reuters has reported on yet another "confirmation" on Koran Flushgate. Apparently, the ACLU(American Civil Liberties Union) obtained memos from the FBI through the Freedom of Information Act.
An FBI agent had interviewed a detainee. The detainee stated that a guard had flushed a copy of the Koran. The memo, dated August 1, 2002, only states what the detainee said. It does not confirm that the allegations are true.
Lawrence Di Rita, Chief Pentagon spokesman, stated that the detainee in question was interviewed on May 14 and was very cooperative and did not corroborate the allegation recorded on August 1, 2002.
Common sense tells me that you cannot flush a book down a toilet and that prisoners are apt to exaggerate or tell outright lies about their treatment. These detainees are members of Al-Qaeda who are trained to make allegations of this nature. The The US Justice Department has a copy of the Al- Qaeda training manual on-line. In the first section on page 13:
5. Spreading rumors and writing statements that instigate people againstthe enemyThe enemy being any non-muslim, such as Jews and polytheists(read Christians). I bet most Christians do not realize they are considered polytheists by Muslims. A polytheist is a person who believes in more than one god. Muslims have a distorted view of the Holy Trinity. Christians believe the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Muslims believe that the Holy Trinity consists of Allah, Jesus, and Mary! From Faith Freedom.org, Quran 5:116
And when Allah saith: O Jesus, son of Mary! Didst thou say unto mankind: Take me and my mother for two gods beside Allah ?
So remember, when you hear an imam or other muslim leader ranting about Jews and polytheists, he is really ranting about Jews and Christians.
