Summary: 

 

The proposition that Islam is especially intolerant, especially prone to violence, is one that has come to possess for liberals as well as Muslims the authentic quality of blasphemy. The possibility that sanction might exist within the Koran for brutal crimes committed by the Islamic State is an upsetting one for all decent and generous-hearted people – non-Muslim as well as Muslim – to countenance.

Admin: The brutal truth is that the link does exist, see:  and what is being proposed here is in effect that the hadith and sira (biograpgy of Muhammad) are dropped because they are unreliable. This is something that others have proposed but it runs into a simple problem, namely, that the quran contains many violent verses and exhortations to violence. Thus even if Muslims were minded to largely dump the story of Muhammad much violence as well as the brutality of Sharia law would still remaIn.
