Koranic precepts?

Reader comment on item: Israel's Policy Should Be Victory

Submitted by Carl A Goldberg (United States), May 17, 2021 at 01:30

Dr. Pipes says that Israeli policies should include :sponsoring reconsiderations of Koranic precepts about control of territory and the place of Jews in the Holy Land.." It is high time that someone started paying attention to the Koran because thr Koranic precepts lie at the very heart of the conflict with Israel. Not only Hamas is motivated by the Koran to make war on the Jews. So is Israel's deadliest enemy, The Islamic Republic of Iran. So is Erdogan's Turkey. So is Hizbollah and The Muslim Brotherhood. The only solution here is not to reconsider the Koranic precepts, because they cannot be changed, but to ignore them, That is what the leaders of the Abraham Accord countries are doing. They have not reconsidered the Jew-hating Koranic precepts; they are merely ignoring them in the interests of state and against the opposition of the Islamic religious community. In short, Islam cannot be changed, but Muslims can be encouraged to become less Islamic.

The Koran itself cannot be changed but its interpretation can be. See http://www.danielpipes.org/2110/the-issue-of-compulsion-in-religion-islam-is-what-its.
