It’s your old buddy Balladeer, but you can call me “the puppet of Jews” like the Muslim fanatics who threaten me do! My regular readers are used to the fact that I treat ALL religions as mythology including Islam, the blood-soaked bully on the block. Just deal with it, Muslims. Christians, Jews, Buddhists, Wiccans and others may get uncomfortable with critical examinations of their belief system but they’ve learned to live in the 21st Century so no matter how angry they get they don’t threaten with the regularity that Muslims do.
Remember, just because I’m not a Conservative it does NOT mean I’m a Liberal. Unlike American Liberals I have a backbone and I won’t refrain from mentioning Islam’s homophobia and misogyny no matter how many threats I get. At any rate here are some of the best books I’ve come across that regard Islam with a critical eye:
WHICH KORAN? VARIANTS, MANUSCRIPTS, LOGISTICS – By Ibn Warraq. This is similar to the many books that analyze differences in the Bible, which is supposedly “divinely inspired” like the Koran. Warraq examines the significance, context, extent and meaning of the different versions of the Koran that are used throughout the Muslim world. A very thought-provoking book that is long overdue.
