Lord Christopher Monckton’s latest column proposed “A bill should be brought before Congress identifying all passages in the [Qur'an] which, whether in isolation or taken together, constitute incitement to murder.”

British Lord calls to ban reading of Qur'an

World Bulletin / News Desk

A British Lord and former advisor to the late Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher has called on the US Congress to ban certain passages of the Qur'an and to make reading them aloud illegal.

Lord Christopher Monckton’s latest column for website World Net Daily falsely claimed “Nearly all acts of terrorism perpetrated throughout the world in the past quarter of a century were carried out by Muslims in the name of Allah.”

“One does not need to look any further than their “holy” book, the [Qur'an],” he said, adding “Craven public authorities have failed to act against the circulation of the [Qur'an] in its present form because they fear a violent backlash.”

According to Raw Story, Monckton then urged the banning of portions of the Qur'an that he wrongly interprets to be a call for violence against nonbelievers, saying the rights of free speech are outweighed by the need to stop incitement.

“A bill should be brought before Congress identifying all passages in the [Qur'an] which, whether in isolation or taken together, constitute incitement to murder,” he proposed.

He went on the say: “The bill should specify that anyone who reads any of these passages out loud is to be charged with that crime and, if convicted, subjected to the usual penalty for it –- a long prison term.”

Everyone should read the Koran. I did and I'm not a Muslim. They should read it so they can see the dichotomy between how Muslims are depicted and how the Koran is telling them to be. If Islam was anything like the Koran it would be the most tolerant religion in the world with respect for Jews and Christians alike written right into their book. I'm not exactly sure where all this terrorist stuff is really coming from.

Monckton must read and understand it first before banning others to read. Instead of inciting people to murder, the Qur'an prohibits murder, threatening such crime with capital punishment.

This is really such a bad call by this person, we can't ban parts or change parts of our holy book. That's what separate us from the Jews and Christians. The Jews and Christians has tampered with their books even up to today taking out portions from prophet lot to support gay marriages.
