Border’s Books adheres to sharia law.

The Borders and Walden book chain have decided not to carry the latest issue of Free Inquiry on their stands in America because they have reprinted the Muhammad cartoons inside. The threat of Islamic Terrorists ransacking Border's is very high, so I understand their decision.

From SF Gate:

"For us, the safety and security of our customers and employees is a top priority, and we believe that carrying this issue could challenge that priority," Borders Group Inc. spokeswoman Beth Bingham said Wednesday.

"What is at stake is the precious right of freedom of expression," said Paul Kurtz, editor-in-chief of Free Inquiry. "Cartoons often provide an important form of political satire ... To refuse to distribute a publication because of fear of vigilante violence is to undermine freedom of press so vital for our democracy."
Border's wouldn't want to offened anyone with what they carry, would they?
