Koran "desecration"

Reader comment on item: Amazon.com's Koran Desecration Problem

Submitted by Gary D. Watson (United States), May 20, 2005 at 17:33

Dear Mr. Pipes,
""`It astounds me that as yet I have read NOT ONE COMMENT in the mainstream media that addresses this fact: a person can treat a book they own in any fashion they please. An "infidel" (non-Muslim) who does not believe the Koran to be sacred may be pleased to treat it like any other book, and they have the right so to do: they may put it in an honored place in their home or they may flush it away. Nobody in the world is required to live up to anyone else's expectations. Get over it Muslims!
