Germany’s largest Muslim organization gets Muslim prof fired for saying violent Qur’an verses not valid for all time

Islamic apologists routinely claim that violent Qur’an verses have no validity beyond Muhammad’s time, but this story illustrates that this is not the mainstream view in Islam. The persecution of Mouhanad Khorchide also shows the uphill battle that genuine Muslim reformers face: branded as heretics and/or apostates, they’re often shunned (or worse) by the very community that needs their ideas the most.

    If this gets properly publicized, the AfD will pick up even more supporters.
