Alleged Allegation Against American Owned Book Distributor

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

Submitted by Dvora (United States), May 25, 2005 at 08:44

Dear Ms. Smith,

I read, in Daniel Pipes' Article mentioned above, about Azza Basarudin, who claims that there was a hateful message written in a Qu'ran which she claims was purchased at Bellwether Books on or about May 5th.

Personally, I do not believe her. I am from Pennsylvania, and I have never seen or heard anything done or said against muslims. I have heard about muslims like Nadir Ali, who beat a Christian Medical Student, Lea Sullivan, to death with a baseball bat on November 7, 2004, here in Philadelphia, on South Street.

I have also heard that a muslim killed Rabbi Kahane on the streets of NYC because he was a Jew. Two school children were shot in the head as they exited their school buses, also in NYC, because they were Jews. I have heard that a muslim beheaded a man around 10th and Race, again, here in Philadelphia, in May of 1998. A muslim male, who had recently been abandoned by his girlfriend, around the same time, beheaded her and raped her in a store she managed. I could go on and on, but I think you might understand where I am coming from. It is sad, because prior to the '80's, I met many muslim converts, who were devoted to friends and family, and they were tolerant of all religions, and all people.

I have been in Mosques since 1963. I continued to learn about Islam, not because I was interested in converting, but because I could not comprehend the reason behind all the hate preached in Mosques.

Since early to mid '80's there was a dramatic change and the adherents of Islam became much more radicalized, and their rhetoric included death to Americans. All Americans. In retrospect , I believe I was seeing the beginning of the Saudi version of Islam which was Wahhabi Totalitarian Islam. This includes hatred and intolerance for all religions, including Shia's, Sunni, Sufi, and other sects of Islam which are more tolerant of other religions.

I think that it takes alot of nerve, for Wahhabi muslims, indoctrinated with a peculiar hate for all people including muslims which they call "apostates" and order "Fatwa's" against them, and who call for the death of Christians and Jews, and willfully set out to kill them, as they did on September 11, 2001, the WTC bombings in 1993, as well as the several incidents I mentioned above.

Before I can refer to them soley as muslim, I would first like to address the personality disorder, which causes people who are affected, to hate everyone and everything so much that they are willing to kill others, or assassinate the character and integrity of reputable businesses, such as is Bellwether Books, with lies.

It is called sociopathy and psychopathy. Those who are affected are intolerant of anyone or anything that does not serve their agenda for criminal activity, and or their call for the slaughter of innocent people. These are the adherents of the Wahhabi style Islam, which includes in their "belief" lies against innocent people, mandated by this form of hateful sect, called "Taqiyya" or lies against all non muslim entities.

Ms. Smith, I have purchased books from Amazon.com and have been a steady customer for many years. This includes purchases made from Bellwether Books, as well as College Books and several other sources who are affiliated with Amazon, and NEVER in all the books I purchased, new or used, have I ever seen a hateful message scrawled on the front of the Book which could be considered a racist remark against ANY religion and or race. Please reconsider your stand with Bellwether Books, based on an unproven accusation from a female, Azza Basarudin, who may be lying, because before she is muslim, she just may have a personality disorder.

When someone inspects books, for Amazon or any affiliate, that is used, it is highly likely, that they would find damage, or vile messages, on the first page, and last page of a book. Clearly, the Wahhabist, Azza Basarudin, found this "alleged message" on the very front of the book, which would never have been overlooked by anyone with the slightest intellect, and it is MORE likely, that this was written by an acquaintence of Ms. Basarudin or by Basarudin herself.

Another point I would like to make, is, why would she order a Qu'ran from Amazon or it's affiliates, when she is muslim and there are free Qurans to all muslims, in every Mosque, and there are Quran's in every Library in most Cities?

Also, right before Islamists took over Pakistan, they accused Muslims and Hindu's of Blasphemy against Islam, which is what this insurgent, Azza Basarudin is doing.

Before you burn the Bridge with Bellwhether Books, don't you owe it to your affiliate to check out the History of the person making the accusation? Doesn't it have to be a factual allegation and proven before any action is taken against your affiliate?

Perhaps it would do you well, to open up the Qu'ran, and read about the hatred and intolerance between the pages, which calls for the death of all non muslims, because what is contained in the pages of the Quran, is something beyond human comprehension and it is truly hateful. Better yet, sit in, on Friday Night, at some Mosques USA, and listen to their cries for "Death to America!".
