I did not know this

According to the Pact of Umar, non-Muslims are not allowed to read to Koran. h/t

    And once you’ve read it, you’re not allowed to leave the religion. Just a tad shady.

    • harriet

      ah…sounds like

      Nancy Pelosi “We have to pass the bill before you can see what’s in it”?

      • Watchman

        Following in the footsteps of Muhammed, “You have to become a muslim before you can see what’s in the Qur’an.” There was obviously much to criticise in the foundational text of his new religion that he could not explain and so the easiest way to ensure no non-muslim can point out inconsistencies, contradictions and the plan for world domination is to ban non-muslims from reading it.

          and to make criticism or rejection of islam (the truth) a crime punishable by death

    FACT: These days, you do not need to actually read the Koran to know what is in it. Nonetheless, you can still BURN a Koran you haven’t read. I have a few right here by the fireplace, graciously (and aggressively) provided to me by some dork at Dundas Square. Great kindling. None will be read prior to being burned.

  • Too late. The Koran is already available to the public, and Mohammad forgot to register the copyright. Like the Bible, you can’t copyright the original words — you can only copyright specific translations by specific publishers, revisions, etc.

    The only legal thing Muslims can do is purchase and burn as many Korans available to the general public as possible. And I’m sure most of us in the general public will not shed any tears at the sight of Muslims burning their own violent supremacist “holy” book.

    • Watchman

      Devout muslims don’t need to resort to legal avenues to ‘protect’ their holy texts: summary lynching has proved effective over the last 1400 years and still works well today to deter the book burners and book mutilators.

    Well, I violated that one lol

    • Jabberwokk

      I certainly have.

  • Tooth&Claw

    Did you reach the parts where Dhimmi need to wear mismatched shoes, substandard clothing, ride a donkey rather than a horse, and give way to Muslim pedestrians? (I.e. walk in the gutter rather than on the sidewalk)

    • tom_billesley

      … and only muslims have the right to bear arms.

      • Tooth&Claw

        and muslims get to take anything you possess including your wife and kids, should they desire them. Your life is worth spit.

        Charming, and deadly.

    • Justin St.Denis

      Yeah, features about Islam such as those just jump off the fuckin’ page and grab you by the throat, don’t they?

  • lzzrd

    Islamophoia is a condition when a non-muslim knows more about islam then they are supposed to. Truth, I stole that from someone, just can’t remember who……….

      I’m using that one all the time. It’s right on the money. Cheers

  • Maggat

    Who in the hell would want to read the koran?

    • Justin St.Denis

      Know thine enemy. Learn his heart. Examine his soul. Then you can vanquish him and all like him.

        Dead on!

  • JoKeR

    That way you have to rely upon their Imams and other preachers for what the Quran is supposed to say without knowing the truth.

    Here is a little musical number about how that works.

  • Too late!

  • xavier

    I knew that. Kinda obvious for Christaons and Jews. They’d fisked to death so effectively that any non brain Moslem would repudiate Islam and destroy it.
    Hence the can’t leave Islam ’cause house dead
