Muslims, especially, in the United States, will tell you how the Koran teaches peace and love. However, here is what they don’t tell you:
The Koran is a collection of couplets. A couplet is a pair of ideas that contradict each other.
What this means is that for every verse that commands peace and love there is a verse that commands violence and hatred.
Now guess who decides when to obey a violence-and-hatred verse in the Koran. The individual Muslim. So, if a Muslim wakes up one morning and feels like beating his wife, he simply looks for a verse in the Koran that commands him to beat his wife.
This type of schizophrenic thinking applies to every facet (part) of a Muslim’s life. It means that a Muslim can be completely convincing when he says he promotes peace and love. You see, at the moment they say that, they are thinking of a peace-and-love verse in the Koran. Later, however, when you are gone, they will look for a violence-and-hatred verse to justify an attack against you.
