Feels violated again?

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

I'm curious at exactly how Azza Basarudin felt violated as a muslim after 911?

I'll tell you who was violated, the 3000 innocent Americans slaughtered by the twisted
adherents to a cult of death.

Ms. Basarudin should feel lucky that she can even buy the Quran at all...let alone enlist
the aid of yet another arrogant and condescending organisation of "islam in america" whose
sole purpose seems to be finding ways to continure their 1400 year history of crying about victimization.

I am one American who is far far from being politically correct, and not the least bit interested in this continual hand-holding and apologizing that goes on toward the muslim community. If the islamists in America, MY America want meaningful dialogue, cultural understanding and equality...then the burden is on THEM, not the rest of us. When I see muslims respecting my
Bible, my culture, my community my heritage and my country, then I'll reciprocate.

But that isn't happening is it?

If you were murdered, would you expect your family to feel sorry for the murderer? Would you constantly bend over backwards to appease them?

I think not.

I'm tired of turning the other cheek, I prefer to just reload.
