President Obama should not be issuing apologies for the military’s burning of the Koran (“Obama apologizes for Koran burning in Afghanistan,” Web, Thursday). Instead, he should be seeking apologies from Islamists for their persecution of Christians throughout the Middle East.

The foundation of Muhammad’s teaching is Christianity, which he took and simplified to suit his own convictions. He taught that Jesus Christ was merely a prophet, a man like other men. The result strips the Redeemer of His uniqueness and classifies Him as someone who can be managed to suit one’s own purposes.
