Amazon.com's Koran Desecration Problem

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

Dear Ms. Smith:

Re the flap over the Koran shipped to Azza Basarudin by Bellweather Books under its relationship with Amazon, I could not agree more with the FrontPageMagazine.com article by Daniel Pipes. I would wholly endorse his final paragraph:

(8) Amazon should answer MPAC firmly in the negative, reinstituting Bellwether's right to sell Korans at Amazon, making no public condemnations, and not giving money to MPAC. If you agree with this conclusion, let Patty Smith at Amazon (psmith@amazon.com) know your thoughts.

So I am letting you know my thoughts. Amazon should avoid pandering to MPAC or any other Muslim organization seeking to intimidate it in any way.
