Reader comment on item: Democrats, Republicans, and Israel
in response to reader comment: "academics" and Islam...

Submitted by DONVAN (United States), May 30, 2006 at 09:06

"Islam" consists of one primary document, the "Koran", a few questionable so called "Histories", and the remaining body of knowledge is various interpretations,conjectures,proclamarions,and unproveable assertions. How this theosophy rises to the lever of serious intellectual discourse is unbelieveable. When objective discourse can get one labled a racist, phobic,or worse, killed, debate tends to be...cautious. Islam will not change. It is,of course, a system of belief. Unless one is prepared to accept the results, why bother. Obviously the study of shir'ia "Law", which codifies the koranic barbarity vis-a-vis women, slavery, punishment, etc, has attracted some psuedo intellectuals to the cause of Mohammed.

Best wishes to J.S.
