Punishment for mishandling the Quran

In a previous post, I listed some rules for handling the Quran. But what is the punishment for mishandling it? Well, according to Ynet news, Allah turned a Muslim girl into a dog for for just such a crime.
TAIBEH – Harsh punishment? A Muslim girl from Taibeh was punished by Allah and turned into a dog, according to rumors that have been circulating in the Arab-Israeli town this week, Arab-language newspaper Panorama reported.

According to the rumors, the harsh punishment was meted out after the girl, upset by her mother’s request to bring her the Quran as she was watching television, threw the holy Muslim book at the mother with disdain.

And this wouldn't be the first time Allah enforced such a punishment. The Quran says that Allah turned some Jews into apes for breaking the Sabbath.
And ye know of those of you who broke the Sabbath, how We said unto them: Be ye apes, despised and hated! And We made it an example to their own and to succeeding generations, and an admonition to the God-fearing. -- Quran 2:65-66
So he'd probably be more than willing to turn you into a dog (or worse) for mistreating the Quran!

Man, I hate to see what is going to happen to me. I had a copy of the Quran for research purposes, and I've thrown it around generally and at Muslims during debates, used it as a coaster, and worse. By the time I traded it for $2 in used store credit at local bookstore,it was all banged up.

My Bosnian buddy was even worse, he spilled vodka on his copy.

Out of respect for the religious beliefs of others, any religious item should be handled with care. For example, if you were an adherent of a particular faith, and if you were holding a religiously sacred item in your hand, you wouldn't stomp on it, throw it around, desecrate it, etc. unless it was part of your faith to do so. Likewise, it is not part of any faith (including Islam, as far as I know) to disrespect the religious property of others, whether you agree with their beliefs or not.

Anonymous claimed that Islam does not disrespect the religious property of others. Good lord in high heaven! Which rock has he been living under?

Destroying infidel religious property is one of the main activities of Islam. Has he heard of the thousands (not hundreds) of temples destroyed in India over a thousand years? Millions killed in India alone. Has he heard of the destruction of the Bamiyan Buddhas just a few years ago?

What sort of a moron claims that Islam does not destroy "religious property"?

really?this should be a world wide news that everybody should know,but as always DID U SEE THIS HAPPEN IN FRONT OF U? NO, so i think that this is just a lie, not only that at the same link (ynews.com a muslim cleric said “since Allah doesn’t need to turn a girl into a dog in order to prove his strength. If Allah wants to prove his power he can make the entire universe shake.” anyway IF mishandling the quran turns ppl 2 animals, then most of us should be dogs or apes or whatever by now LOL, BUT THAT DIDNT HAPPEN WHY? u know LIES
