Random House axes book critical of the Qur’an because it might “amplify anti-Islam sentiments”

Random House axes book critical of the Qur’an because it might “amplify anti-Islam sentiments”, by Robert Spencer.

Would Random House hesitate for a nanosecond to publish a book that might seize on and amplify anti-Christian sentiments? Anti-Jewish sentiments? Of course not.

But in its cowardice — masked as respect — regarding Islam, Random House is not alone. I know from personal experience that most American publishers (with some notable exceptions, including Bombardier Books, Regnery Publishing, and a few others) will not publish Islamocritical books, no matter how carefully argued and accurate they may be. Cowardice is the fundamental character trait of this age.
