Hot Air will bring you a new series that we hope will foster discussion as well as become a resource for anyone who wants to know more about the Qur’an (or Koran) and its role in the Islamic world and in the ideology of al Qaeda and other terrorist groups, as well as its place in the lives of a billion Muslims worldwide.
Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch will write a post on each Surah of the Quran, from first to last, as he reads it. And link what he reads with what we know and observe in the world these days. So far, two Surahs have been blogged:
Surah 1 The Fatiha (Opening)
Surah 2 Al-Baqara (“The Cow”)
If you're interested in islam and what it actually teaches (as opposed to the daily overdose of taqeeya we get from both MSM, political elite and assorted islamists), or if you've ever picked up a Quran and found the prose to be mindnumbingly hard to get through (been there, done that, as the saying goes), this series is for you.
