The splattered Koran

Recall the rather unconvincing and callous explanation that some copies of the Koran were — what was it? — “splashed with urine” at Guantanamo —

well, in my never-ending combing of the Internet (I was reading about adaptive interior design for persons with physical disabilities) I found an article on the toilet habits of Muslims that makes the infraction — but the religious and nudity humiliation — all the more distressing.

  1. I just find it all a little prescriptive. If God didn’t want us to pee then we wouldn’t be able to! Obviously the rules that we should pee etc in privacy are there due to public decency and privacy but I really don’t think you need to follow all these specific rules.
