How about a New Quran?

Reader comment on item: How Terrorism Harms Radical Islam

Submitted by Peter Miles (Spain), Jan 10, 2015 at 04:59

The problem with Islam is that Muslims are exhorted to fight for their religion in over 120 verses in the Quran. The teaching is that all unbelievers should be put to the sword. Moslems are being taught this from a young age. The only way to stop Jihad is to have a New Quran, which excludes these verses. The New Quran should also eliminate the verses particularly detrimental to women. Maybe you can't expect Muslims to give up polygamy. But Muslim men should not be encouraged to hit their women, to kill them if they marry outside the religion, to marry very young girls, etc etc.

In England, we had the New English Bible in the 17th century during the reformation.

A New Quran is do-able.

The west needs to get together with Islamic scholars to write the New Quran and then outlaw the old Quran. Muslim imams in the West who refuse to work with the new Quran should be imprisoned, under the new laws that make it illegal to incite people to violence.

The place for the old Quran is the museum.
