I am finding myself taking a long time to get through this book, I can't believe what I am reading, which is leading me to look up the references used( I was surprised by how many references there is!). The references used are written by academics a lot of the time. So although many would call the authors extreme in their views it would seem these 'extreme' views are held by many and have been held over many years.
Finally, a book that will give a different view from the main stream. Someone actually having the Koran in thier book. Directly quoting more than one verse.
I haven't even finished this book and my views are changing. At the beginning of 2017 I was a hardcore left wing SJW, defending muslims at every turn. But now I can see how wrong I was, it's taking a while but I can see now. Thank you Tommy, keep up the good work. People are slowly waking up.
It also eludes to how Islamic countries are kept weak because the religion sets Muslim against Muslim over minor transgressions of the complex rules within Islam, and forbids critical thought so the contradictions in the Koran will not be questioned, this enables the religion to survive. This is achieved through death to apostates, un-believers who criticize the religion, and Muslims who ask questions. This avoidance of critical thought also discourages science and innovation which undermine Islam, and has led to poor development in Islamic countries.
The rest of the book contains a copy of the Koran. A regular Koran contains the "revelations" that Muhammad supposedly got through the angel Gabriel, with the order all jumbled up. This Koran sorts those revelations in order from last to first... this is because later (often violent) revelations cancel (abrogate) out earlier (peaceful) revelations.
The book also highlights the more concerning revelations in Bold so that they are easy to find. This does two things, firstly it makes it clear that there are a lot of revelations that will directly concern non-Muslims, since these revelations direct Muslims to kill or subdue non-Muslims. Secondly the concerning revelations are mostly towards the end of Muhammad's life, it seems in his last days and weeks he was very busy killing non-Muslims, and these later revelations override the earlier revelations.
For people not familiar with the Koran, you will find that many of the revelations make little to no sense. For example a revelation might be "pick that up, and make good use of it"... you then have to read the Hadiths to find out that Muhammad picked up a sword and kill infidels with it (NOTE: The Hadiths provide "context" to the revelations, and were written by his followers who observed what he was doing when he received each revelation from Allah).
So when you read the Koran section, do not expect a "good read", because the "revelations" do not have the "context" of the Hadiths. However many revelations are clear within themselves, and it is clear infidels are to be killed or forced to submit to Islam by Muhammad, who is considered the perfect example of conduct. Hence we see ISIS copying Muhammad in his killing-sprees, rapes, stoning, child-marriage, slavery... and all manner of other unpleasant things that Muhammad got up to.
If you are going to buy a Koran, I'd buy this one... and use it as a talking point with family and friends. We should all be concerned about anyone who believes that this is the perfect and unalterable word of god (and many really do, which is idealogically why they segregate). In these conversations it is worth pointing out that one of the major issues with Islam appears to be that Muhammad had a peaceful phase when he was in a minority, and then a violent "death to unbelievers" phase when in a majority. This means that in countries where Muslims are a minority they can copy Muhammad and behave peacefully. But if they reach a majority, history suggests that they may feel compelled to follow the instructions from Allah and turn to violence.
If you think this turn to violence is unlikely, think again... There was a famous psychological study called the "Milgram experiment" where ordinary members of the public were induced to give "electric shocks" to a "learner" to the point where they apparently "died". These member of the public gave the shocks as long as an authority figure took responsibility... For a Muslim their in no higher authority than Allah, and although most Muslims are good, they may feel compelled to follow the commands of Allah, despite their personal morals if they believe the Koran to contain the word of god.
Note: Its worth buying a book like "The Story of Mohammed Islam Unveiled" to get an idea of what this man got-up to, it is also worth taking a look at books/you-tube videos by ex-Muslims like Ayaan Hirsi Ali, people who were persecuted like Brigitte Gabriel, and David Wood does clear explanations of the obsurdaties of Islam. If all that does not get you worried, there is also a book called "Reliance of the Traveller" which gives an easy-to-read version of Sharia law derived from the Islamic texts... which will leave you fervently anti-sharia when you see what is in store for you.
Finally, lets keep it positive and remember we need to save Muslims from this awful religion and its structured-toilet-routines, music-ban, Satan-whispering-in-your-ear nonsense... so that we can save ourselves from the Jihad. Buts lets also remember that the UK government has already imprisoned people for burning the Koran, for leaving a bacon sandwich in an offensive location, and even Tommy, so there is an urgency to sharing this book with family and friends. We need open discussion of what it means to emulate Mohammed as seen in ISIS, and start to ask the question of our Muslim friends: If Allah is so merciful, why are the majority of victims of jihad other Muslims?.
