The real hatred is indelibly printed on the Koran's pages

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

Submitted by Domenico (United States), May 23, 2005 at 03:46

I agree with other commenters who point out that the Koran itself is replete with verses promoting hatred of non-Muslims. And I add that the Koran also teaches incitement to violence toward non-Muslims, contains plagarism of Christian, Jewish and other non-Muslim Scriptures, and promotes misogyny, bigotry, and racism in its 'holy' verses.

I submit that the real issue Islamists have with amazon.com is that Amazon freely distributes many books critical of these very same Islamic teachings. Amazon is a major source of books that expose the truth about ideologies that threaten our freedoms and liberty. It should come as no surprise to anyone who studies history that the free exchange of ideas is "death to totalitarian ideologies".
