If You Don’t Believe It, There’s the Bed!

It worked for the terrorists at Guantanamo Bay, so now Palestinian prisoners are claiming that Israeli soldiers “desecrated” Korans:

The militant Islamic Jihad on Wednesday presented pictures of torn copies of the Islamic holy book, the Quran, claimed they were taken inside an Israeli prison and said soldiers were responsible for the desecration. Israel denied the charge and said the pictures were a fabrication.

Here is a picture of the torn Koran:

The Associated Press noted that the photographic evidence is less than conclusive:

The pictures transmitted Wednesday showed Qurans with several pages torn in the middle. It was impossible to tell from the pictures themselves where they were taken or when.

This story reminded me of the old line about the guy who has a bed that he claims George Washington once slept in; hence the post’s title.
