Boris,

>Koran ... this (...)creative and eternal book .
> You pronounce one phrase - and you are already a Muslim! You don't have to pass any exam for compliance with a law, such as accept 10 Commandments or 613 mitzvas.
> Islam is not stuck - it is so flexible
> Because the only principle that you can find in Koran is is a principle of not having any principles.

When and under what circumstances did you convert to Islam ?

I am asking this question because if you one day discover for yourself that "Islam" really means "submission" and "slavery" and not "freedom" or "a principle of having no principle" this one phrase you once inadvertently pronounced may become your death sentence. And Islam is really so flexible that it will do all within its powers to execute you.
