I've read the koran, cover to cover. Have you?

Reader comment on item: Bush Declares War on Radical Islam
in response to reader comment: Prophet Muhammed is a mercy to all the worlds

Slavery ... the submission of captives generally (and women in particular) is set out in detail in the koran. Killing unbelievers (i.e those who choose not to follow the false prophet, Mohammed) is also specifically detailed. Read sura 9.5 and tell me otherwise.

The most gentle of religions - Bhuddism - is, (with any other religion that incorparates idols or physical deities) given especially dire treatment in the koran. Islam is based on a political monster - Mohammed. Christ, in comparison, was apolitical. He was the victim of politics - not the master. Mohammed was political before he was godly. When you've read your book please feel free to respond.
