Book Reviews: The Koran
Compiled by Michael Copeland
- “This wretched book … I have been unable to discover in it one single idea of value.” — Arthur Schopenhauer
- “So long as there is this book there will be no peace in the world.”— William E. Gladstone
- “When I have time, I must put it into German so that every man may see what a foul and shameful book it is.” — Martin Luther
- “It’s a depressing book. It really is. It’s just the rantings of a schizophrenic. There is also the barrenness of the message. It has no ethical dimension.” —Sebastian Faulks
- “[It] teaches fear, hatred, contempt for others. Murder as a legitimate means of spreading and maintaining this devil’s doctrine. It denigrates women, divides people into classes and demands blood and more blood.” — Voltaire (Quoted by Julius O’Malley, comment)
- “He bestows praise upon such instances of treachery, inhumanity, cruelty, revenge, bigotry, as are utterly incompatible with civilised society.” —David Hume
- An “incoherent jumble of fable and precept and declamation which seldom excites a sentiment or an idea, sometimes crawls in the dust and is sometimes lost in the clouds.” —Edward Gibbon
- “…an incentive to war, and propagator of hostility…” —Dayanand Saraswati, Indian sage, 1883
- “An ill-arranged collection of badly translated plagiarisms of earlier Jewish and Christian stories.” — Christopher Hitchens
- “… right there in black and white, absolute encouragement — no, a divine instruction — to act atrociously towards the rest of the world. Page after page of it. Sex slaves, the lot. The thing is horrific. … and if you ask my opinion, the thing should be banned for inciting racial and religious hatred on almost every page.”—Tommy Robinson, in Enemy of the State
- “…at times violent imagery of torment and punishment in hell, at other times direct commands to believers to deal mercilessly with unbelievers, conveyed in a frenzied torrent of words repeatedly revisiting the theme of hatred and vengeance…” — Mathieu Baudin, comment, Jihad Watch
How Islam terrorises once-great Britain:
Tell Mama is an Islamic propaganda outfit funded by the British state. This state-funded outfit is demanding that Amazon apply its supposed anti-violence policy and that Amazon should ban a book by the leader of a legal British political party. I don’t know what’s in Paul Golding’s book, but I’m pretty sure that if he was inciting violence it would have been headline news and Golding would be in prison.
Not only does Amazon sell Mein Kampf, but Amazon also sells the Koran. And what does the Koran say?
- “Kill the unbeliever“
- “It is not for a prophet to have captives [of war] until he inflicts a massacre [upon Allah ‘s enemies] in the land.”
So the very people who defend the Koran with its dozens and dozens of commands to kill and slaughter are demanding that Amazon ban books that promote violence (excluding the Koran, obviously).
All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.
Orwell had trouble getting Animal Farm published because there were so many Communists and Communist-sympathisers in the publishing industry. Now the Communists are on the side of the Islamo-Nazis, the global corporations and the deep state.
Islam’s commands of violent hatred are OK. Criticising those calls to violence is “hate speech”.
