Reader comment on item: Pope Benedict XVI and the Koran

Submitted by A.A. (United States), Jan 24, 2006 at 13:40

Since 9/11 the interest in quran has continuosly increased. The publication of Craig Winns book "The Prophet of Doom" in 2004 and Rober Spencer's best seller "The politically incorrect guide to Is;am in 2005 has further increased this interest.
In 1984 a writ was filed in Calcutta (India) to ban Quran because it promoted violence and hatred against non muslims and thus violated many indian penal codes". the writ was dismissed under heavy muslim lobbying.
A similar petition is underway in USA for congress to debate quran and ban for the same reason .
Mohammed Atta the leader of 9/11 terrorist quoted quranic ayas before his action and so does Osama Bin Laden to promote violence against USA. Abu Musab Zarqawi always quotes quranic ayas to justify his beheading the infidels. The killer of Van Gogh also attached quranic verses on VanGoghs body after beheading him.
Quran has over 100 ayas promoting violence against non muslims, and a similar number to promote hatred and discrimination.
