    "I studied the Quran a great deal. I came away from that study with the conviction that by and large there have been few religions in the world as deadly to men as that of Muhammad. So far as I can see, it is the principal cause of the decadence so visible today in the Muslim world and, though less absurd than the polytheism of old, its social and political tendencies are in my opinion more to be feared, and I therefore regard it as a form of decadence rather than a form of progress in relation to paganism itself."

    Tireman, I just read that quote last night.
    The three books came in yesterday, and we started with this one -
    Going SLOW, reading aloud so we can both absorb it -
    And there are enough side comments and thoughts that this is going to take some time to finish -

    GREAT book, though, and THANK YOU for posting about it!!!
