On interpreting the Koran

Reader comment on item: Pope Benedict XVI and the Koran

No doubt about it, IF Islam generally were to suitably interpret and follow the revised world-view that such re-interpretation would represent, Islamism and reaction, now leading features of militant Islam, could be greatly altered. So, one may reflect, could the human condition be changed if people would just grow wings and learn to fly like birds. Perhaps, if I had batteries, I might turn into a radio.
