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

Submitted by J. & E. Silk (United States), May 21, 2005 at 03:28

We sent Amazon Books the following:


We disagree with Amazon's decision regarding the punishment meted out to Bellwether. We buy books very often from Amazon and will discontinue our purchases immediately.

Perhaps you will reverse your decision in the light of fairness and good sense, or, maybe, because your company will feel it in its purse strings.

When the Holy Bible is safe from destruction caused by Moslems, and when Jewish religious sites, such as Joseph's tomb, are safe from destruction caused by Moslems, and when Christian churches, such as the one taken over by terrorists in Bethlehem are safe from the desecration caused by Moslems, then and only then will the Koran will be safe from destruction. Until that time people of the Moslem faith have no right to complain and to do so is sheer hypocrisy. This hypocrisy has no place in the business decisions made by Amazon.com. and won't be tolerated by many of your (former) customers.
