The peaceful solution to a rogue religion is archeology! The Koran is the soft underbelly of Islam

I have nothing but respect for worthy warriors and families trying to raise their good children. Sadly, many people get taken in by their credulity and fear and are being manipulated by a class of billionaires created by fossil fuel. However, to the extent that Islam/Islamism is a "problem", the peaceful solution is not "moderation" which really has no meaning. Nor is violent suppression the only alternative. Islam itself is a problem for Islamic believers, as well as for infidels, and this gives us a handle on what a fine peaceable solution could be: ARCHEOLOGY. It turns out that the Koran is a mix of war stories coupled with Syriac Christian (aramaic) teaching texts, cobbled together almost a CENTURY after all the Arabs who ever met Mohammad had died, and imposed on the Arabs since that time by the Turks (Caliphs) and Persians (Ayatollahs) to justify their conquests. There is virtually NO archeological support for the Koran. It is obscure and contradictory, a problem compounded by the fact that Arabs have disputed its meaning for centuries.
