I don't understand the ALA....
Reader comment on item: Library Association Abandons Principle, Allows Censorship

Submitted by Meeker, Jul 22, 2009 07:42

Why did they give in to the bullying of CAIR? What upside is there for them in so doing, when the comments in the blogoshere are almost uniformly excoriating. Or, on the other side, what downside could there have been in their going ahead?? What would CAIR have done??

Is there noone on the ALA panel who was organizing this who had some backbone and ethics? Some knowledge of Islam? (or is that too much to ask?).
