Al-Azhar on French call to reform Qur’an: “Go to hell!” Violent verses are “in reality verses of peace”

“No to freezing a single letter from the Koran, and those calling for this can go to hell.”

Peaceful guy!

Shuman also said: “What those who issued this call think are verses calling for their killing are in reality verses of peace,” claiming that the Qur’an only calls for fighting in self-defense. He seems to have forgotten about passages such as 8:39, which calls upon Muslims to fight until “religion is all for Allah,” and 9:29, which calls upon Muslims to fight and subjugate the “People of the Book,” solely because they are not Muslims.

Nor does Shuman explain why so very many Muslims seem to misunderstand these verses calling for killing as…verses calling for killing, such that there have been over 32,000 jihad attacks around the world since 9/11.

Never mind the state it's in as I tidy everything up prior to publication. Don't let good material go to waste - and so much does. In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
