Pragmatism

Reader comment on item: Study the Koran?
in response to reader comment: Was Islamic militancy indeed not present in the 1960s?

It doesn't matter if Muhamnad was a bigot. But targeting the Quran or Nuhamnad, galvanizes Muslims and gives fuel (or/and excuses) to rationalize brutal bloody violence. On a pragmatic tactic, it would be encouraged to point out that Muslims have a choice how to interpret text and vis-a-vis contemporary situations.
Haj Amin Al-Husseini had a choice before he created in 1920 the genocidal phrase "Itbach al Yahud".
