The Global War On You Know Who

"The West is facing a concerted effort by Islamic jihadists, the motives and goals of whom are largely ignored by the Western media, to destroy the West and bring it forcibly into the Islamic world -- and to commit violence to that end even while their overall goal remains out of reach. That effort goes under the general rubric of jihad."

Operation: Desecrate American Flag

An Islamist website announces: "Members of desecrate the American flag to show their allegiance to Allah (swt) in reply to the Qur'an desecration at Guantanamo Bay."
Just to show where our loyalty belongs to. You see this flag here? It's gonna go on the floor [places flag on the street, steps on it]. And to us, our loyalty does not belong to this flag. [Shouting] Allahu Akbar! Allahu Akbar!
See the sickening, shocking 5-minute video here.

Oh yes. Also see the DoD memo on proper handling of the Qur'an, dated Jan. 19, 2003, here (PDF).
4. Handling.

a. Clean gloves will be put on in full view of the detainees prior to handling.

b. Two hands will be used at all times when handling the Koran in manner signaling respect and reverence. Care should be used so that the right hand is the primary one used to manipulate any part of the Koran due to the cultural association with the left hand. Handle the Koran as if it were a fragile piece of delicate art.

c. Ensure that the Koran is not placed in offensive areas such as the floor, near the toilet or sink, near the feet, or dirty/wet areas.
UPDATE: Robert Spencer receives death threats from the Islamic Thinkers Society for "waging an e-Crusade," i.e., publicizing and criticizing the abovementioned video.
