This is a preemptive warning from the islamists

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

Submitted by Arvind Madhavan (India), May 22, 2005 at 08:36

I have no doubt that the woman who is accusing Amazon is making up this incident. In fact, this is a taste of things to come. This incident is a warning from the islamists to corporate america about the price of performing mistakes with anything relating to Islam. This is nothing, but a show of power. An advance warning that "you make a small mistake concerning us, we shall slander/sue you to oblivion and back" Under such circumstances, the hapless company or individual would be terrified of islamic retaliation in the form of misinformed public opinion hyped up the the politically correct "dhimmified" media (who themselves have been corrupted by similar tactics)

One possible solution for Amazon is to stop selling the Koran online. But then if the company follows such a practice then CAIR would probably claim discrimination again and do not be surprised if you find a free copy of Koran delivered to you, courtesy Amazon's islamic sensitivity program forced by CAIR.

Believe me Mr. Pipes, the islamists are geniuses in propaganda and intiimidation of public opinion. First they shall gag your mouth (Newsweek) then they shall gag your hands (Amazon), the rest I leave unsaid...
