What Does the Koran Really
It may be the most controversial book in the world.
Some see it as a paean to peace, others call it a violent mandate for worldwide Islamic supremacy. How can one book lead to such dramatically different conclusions?
The truth is, not many Westerners know what's in the Koran, since so few have actually read it - even among the legions of politicians, diplomats, analysts, and editorial writers who vehemently insist that the Koran preaches tolerance.
Now, in The Complete Infidel's Guide to the Koran
, New York Times
bestselling author Robert Spencer unveils the mysteries lying behind this powerful book, guiding readers through the controversies surrounding the Koran's origins and its most contentious passages. The Complete Infidel's Guide to the Koran
- The true meaning of celebrated and seemingly benign verses, such as "Strive in the way of Allah" and "Persecution is worse than slaughter"
- How the Koran sanctions domestic abuse, honor killing, and murder
- How the Koran not only discourages Infidels from reading it, but mandates that they don't even touch it
- Why President Obama is dangerously close to supporting a multiculturalism based on an ideology that aims to destroy the principles America holds dear
Stripping out the obsolete debates, Spencer focuses on the Koran's decrees toward Jews, Christians, and other Infidels, explaining how they were viewed in Muhammad's time, what they've supposedly done wrong, and most important, what the Koran has in store for them.About the Author
