This is a photo of a coin that a U.S. Marine distributed at a checkpoint controlling access to the city,of Fallujah, Iraq, taken on Friday, May 30,2008. One side of the coin reads in Arabic ‘Where will you spend eternity?’ and the the other side, ‘For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16.’.
Sunni officials and residents said a US Marine distributed about 10 of the coins to civilians. The U.S. military responded quickly to the incident, first reported by McClatchy Newspapers, removing a Marine from duty pending an investigation. Distribution of the coins was the second perceived insult to Islam by American service members this month. (AP)

And these Christian comic books they give out can traumatize Iraqi children. There have been some reports of this that seem very credible. The comics generally start with something like a bombing in which Muslims are killed, and end with the message that any Muslim who has died without converting to Christianity and being saved by Jesus is now burning in hell. Just think of what this does to an Iraqi kid whose Muslim friends and family members have just been killed.
One comic book from Chick Publications not only depicts Mohammed, but shows him kneeling down in the fires of hell saying that Jesus is Lord.
