rewriting the koran

According to the Ministry of Religious Affairs, copies of the Koran with "serious and malicious alterations" have appeared for sale in the streets and mosques in Algeria, and from now on all copies in circulation will undergo inspection and will be stamped if approved. (Kind of like the blue stamp from the FDA you find on your steak?)

So much for the inalterable word of God, and how do they expect to handle the inspection...word for word comparison? Wonder what the alterations and/or deletions were? Crazy scary stuff...
