You still can find the book in the West, but long before you do, you learn that it is toxic, so that you have a good chance not to be fascinated by it. So it should be with the Koran. How? Where it is possible, that it where Muslims are a small minority, just the same as Mein Kampf: with structured, heavily commented and largely known critics, that makes it a shameful object to possess apart from academic study. And within Islam, with tools that allow people to quickly go to the shaky bottom of it and clearly see its shortcomings.
