"In reality, it is not against Islamic law to burn Korans, as two of the following three points make clear.
"First, and most importantly: authoritative fatwas exist legitimizing the burning of Korans in situations such as prevailed at Parwan ...
"If it has torn pages;
If it has pages or suras (chapters) out of order;
If the printed text is somehow amiss with errors or typos;
If any of the pages are missing.
"The 'Online Islamic Academy' SunniPath adds:'One should not write within the Koran nor highlight it.' Taken together, these Sunni sources clearly declare that writing in a Koran is tantamount to 'corrupting' the Islamic holy book and that disposal of the corrupted book by burning is perfectly acceptable.
"Second: the aforementioned fatwa adduces Uthman, the third caliph of Islam (644-656 AD), because he is well-known in the Islamic world for having burned 'Korans'... the torching of obsolescent scriptures was legitimized in Islamic history by the leader many Sunnis consider to be second in prestige only to Muhammad himself.
"Third: the U.S. military can hardly be accused of any degree of special prejudice against Islamic holy writ when that same military has burned Bibles."
All the above show "selective outrage" by muslims that is further fueled by the Obama administration's incessant apologies for the hypocritical behavior of islamists.
