The Koran goes on top

Borders has a history of kowtowing to Islamist demands.
I was shifting rows of books in our religion section and it happened to be that all of our Koran books (a section on its own) ended up on the bottom shelf. The next day I was informed by my General Manager that it is Borders policy as a whole (not my particular store) that due to complaints in the past from Muslim customers, we are not allowed to put our copies of the Koran on any shelf other than the top.

Then there's the deal to open stores in UAE.

ADDENDUM: Throwing down the gauntlet to Borders.
