What does one do with defaced Korans?

What is the proper disposal method for Korans that are old, defaced or have been replaced by newer, better Korans? Apparently burning them is a no-no.  At least that is what we have been led to believe by the MSM.

Flags you can burn. Bibles you can burn. But burn a Koran and you get riots and killing. In this case the Koran burning led one Afghan soldier to kill two US servicemen.

"until the doers of such inhumane actions are prosecuted and punished."

"We should attack their military bases, their military convoys, we should kill their soldiers, arrest their invading soldiers, beat them up and give a kind of lesson to them that they never dare to insult the holy Koran," the message said.
He top General in Afghanistan apologized for burning the Korans. Obama apologized for burning the Korans. Note that the part about the death of our soldiers came at the very end of the UPI story, providing us with some guidance about what the state controlled media considers important.

For some reason none of the Afghans has given any thought to saying they’re sorry for the killing. Perhaps it’s a Muslim thing.

Oh wait … NPR tells us that the proper way of disposal is burning!    An imam said so.
The Quran is considered to be the speech of God to human kind — word for word — explains Imam Johari Abdul-Malik.

"The traditional way of disposing of used or damaged copies of the text of the Quran is by burning it," he says.

But Malik, the director of outreach for the Dar al-Hijrah Islamic Center in Falls Church, Va., says that doesn't include burning it with the trash. That's what U.S. officials say mistakenly happened with the Qurans in Afghanistan.
Ah, that’s the problem. There was no separate fire for the Korans!

There are as many ways of disposing of Bibles as there are Christian denominations. Despite NPR – for whom Christianity is exotic, faintly repulsive unexplored territory - there really is nothing authoritative from any denomination and certainly no one in Christendom would shoot someone else for burning a defaced bible. Many Bibles are thrown away which means that they are mixed in with the trash.

Do you get the sneaking feeling that this whole burned Koran thing, like the flushed Koran thing a few years ago is really an excuse, and that the reason is that you can get Muslims to riot about virtually anything, especially as they like to express their hated of Americans?

What has happened to the Obama magic? The guy that was gonna slow the rise of the oceans and heal the planet seems to be having a little trouble calming the crazies in Afghanistan. But then he hasn't even handled people killing each other over Air Jordan's here at home. He might want to pull back on the rhetoric just a smidge for this next campaign.

It has been used as a propoganda ploy of the extremists. This has brought home the point very vividly that the muslim extremists are more popular than the US in Afghanistan.

No korans were ever flushed down the toilet at Gitmo. That false story was planted in the media by a white stocking law firm representing Kuwait and some Kuwaiti nationals who had been captured on the battlefield in Afghanistan.
