As per your suggestion:

From(Charles Barry Hudson) Date: Fri, May 20, 2005, 10:57am To: psmith@amazon.com Subject: The Bellwether 'incident'...
Ms Smith,
I am a frequent, repeat customer of Amazon, but now a distressed customer of Amazon.
It is good that you offer an apology from Amazon to an 'offended' customer re the alleged defaced koran, but that should be the end of it.
To indulge the threats and rantings of an organization about the 'insults' to Muslims, without proper context or comparisons is indeed craven.
These organizations and the likes of 'CAIR' , complain bitterly about their sufferings, but blithely and defiantly choose to ignore the far worse atrocities perpetrated by their radical Islamic 'brothers' in the name of Holy Islam. Asking THEM to apologize, nay, even acknowledge, the atrocities, falls on deaf unrepentant ears.
Their self indulgent, self serving absorption of 'insults' to them, as a result of 911, is arrogant and narcissistic. Ask THEM to condemn to those responsible for 911, and see what you get. Denial, deflection to other 'causes' or the like. Some people won't face reality, as it shines a light on their own perfidy.
You and your company would do well to face 'their' realities...and suggest they do also.
C.B. Hudson
