Reader comment on item: Is Prince Charles a Convert to Islam?
in response to reader comment: do we actually know everything about Islam?

for your recommendation to read the Koran. Which Koran should I read? The dogma of Islam says that only the Koran in Arabic is the "True" Koran. This is the kind of absurd argument presented by Islamics. The Koran is meaningless to a non Muhammedian. A compilation of half witted sentiments that conradicts itself under the principle of "Abrogation". This is the practice of cancelling the previous statement if the subsequent statement is more acceptable, which in the case of the Koran is an ever increasing violent and repressive dogma. I assume you to be an adult human , and as a follower of the Islamic dogma you know this. Therfore one must ask, why the dismissiveness?

Have you read the works of Homer in the original Greek? If not how can you possibly begin to understand the foundations of civilization? This is no more absurd than expecting the Koran to be required to understand the conon and dogma of the Muhammedian model of (un)civilization.
