The Koran problem & Amazon

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

Submitted by M Prins (United States), Jun 4, 2005 at 23:50

Is it just me or is this a world class example of false piety? Here we see on the internet and TV the desecration of human life. No riots in the streets, no well crafted missives from the muslim community in response. Is not human life more sacred then a book? I have watched listened and made my judgement that this is misplaced peity and of little value in modern discourse. Amazon needs to reverse course and reinstate Bellweather.
