She Doesn't Know The Qur'an, But She's Sure She Knows What It Contains

Real Teachings of the Koran


To the Editor:

I have never read the Koran. What little I know about it tells me that it does not promote violence. The brutal murder of schoolchildren and teachers in Peshawar, Pakistan — indeed, all violence — is in violation of the Koran’s teachings. I hope people of other faiths and beliefs do not hold all Muslims responsible for this terrorist act. I cannot help but imagine Mohammed holding his head in his hands and weeping in anguish over the acts committed in his name.
