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

Submitted by John McClain (United States), May 21, 2005 at 12:18

Dear Mr. Pipes,
As I read your column I couldn't help but remember an incident that occured a couple of years ago, although it seemed to me to be just yesterday, the occupation of the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem, occupied by Aryan Arab Terrorists. It is my understanding that these brutal and childish terrorists deliberately desecrated the Church and every possible part of it in every way they could imagine. They used Bibles as toilet paper, they defecated and uninated on the altar, they ate food enough for six months themselves while letting their hostages go hungry, and they did all of this with the full blessings of the Islamic world, I know this because I witnessed the "outcry" , or lack there of, when this event took place.
Since this is a case of actual desecration and not merely the charge of desecration I will have to do everything in my power as a citizen to ensure that my country, America, ceases to do any business with anyone with any connection to Islam, it is the only reasonable answer to the deliberate desecration and its subsequent support by those who talk of "Sacred" but demonstrate the total lack of understanding of the meaning of this word. The desecration is only one of the most ignominious desecrations deliberately perpetrated by Muslims, and indicative of what Islam is about. Every act taken by Muslims in the so called "occupied territories" is a desecration of holy land, and the fact that almost every single structure built by Muslims in the land once known as Israel is built on top of a destroyed structure of Judaism, with most of the destruction deliberate acts. When Muslims go out into the streets and protest the desecration done by their own, I will consider them to have a voice in this issue, until then, any protest they could make is hypocracy in a blatant and deliberate manner.
