Koran Desecration Problem

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

Re.: Azza Basaruddin's complaint.

We ourselves need to be desensitized and IGNORE the term 'offending Muslim sensibilities'. We have seen enough and more atrocities the Muslims have committed against those they consider 'infidels'. The Muslim psyche needs to develop. They are too engrossed in themselves and their sensibilities, while they cast off all ethics out of the window while they deal with infidels. We will not be helping them develop if we pamper their 'sensibilities' and cater to their ridiculous complaints.

The Muslims talk about our desecrating their Koran. In Pakistan, Iraq, and elsewhere around the world the Shiites and Sunnies burn the mosques of their rivals, and burn the Korans that are in them. What about the Palestinian terrorists who desecrated the Church of the Nativity sanctuary and used the site where Christ was born as a urinal, and used the pages of the Bible as toilet paper?

Amazon should answer MPAC firmly in the negative and reinstitute Bellwether's right to sell Korans at Amazon, making no public condemnations, and not giving money to MPAC.
