Juan Cole: Following Quranic logic to its conclusion

March 17th · 2 Comments · Islam, Muslim, Quran

Stumbled across this insight from University of Michigan Professor Juan Cole while researching my talk on the true picture of Muslims with a great group yesterday at Harbour’s Edge in Delray Beach. Cole cites and translates chapter and verse to conclude: “The default in the Quran is therefore not aggressive warfare, something the book repeatedly condemns. Warfare is permitted in self-defense. But the default is to be at peace with those who are at peace with you.” Note the date; another sign of how long “Informed Content” at has trumped most major news sources for “Thoughts on the Middle East, History and Religion.”

Host Ray Marks confirmed...

...that I stimulated some thought.

More of the good folks at Harbour's Edge.

(R-L) Ray Marks, Harold and Janice Cooper, Aneesha and me.
