Posted April 02, 2020 15:50:51 The Quran is not a book of laws, but rather a book with a set of principles, says a new book, which argues that the Quran is “clearly” teaching the very same ideas as many of the world’s most dangerous and violent terrorist groups.
In the new book The Quran’s War on Terrorism, the Oxford University Press is publishing excerpts from the Quran and other religious texts that it says show the Quran teaches that terrorists can be held legally responsible for “inappropriate” thought.
The book is an attempt to make sense of a book that is believed by some Muslims to be an infallible book, the Quran’s third most authoritative book, and by some Islamic scholars to be the sole law of the land.
“There are some texts that clearly show that there are principles that are applicable to a wide variety of cases,” said Ali Fadlallah, who heads the Oxford Centre for Islamic Studies, a nonprofit that promotes the study of Islam.
“And there are others that suggest that those principles are not applicable.”
The Quran, which is the second most widely read book in the world, is the third-most revered book in Islam, after the Bible and the Koran.
The Quranic texts have inspired violence in the past.
In June, the U.S. State Department released a list of more than a dozen terrorist attacks, including the 1998 World Trade Center bombing in New York City that killed six people.
Fadlalla said he is convinced that the teachings of the Quran are not a product of a “cultural revolution” that began in the 1970s in the U,S., or in Western nations.
He said the Quran was written to be used by Muslims in an armed conflict.
The Quran teaches, for example, that Muslims should not “fight in the way of a king,” Fadlarallah said.
He pointed to the verses that forbid Muslims from using force against non-Muslims and warn against killing non-believers, such as apostates, infidels, and Jews.
But he said the teachings on the “killing of non-combatants” are consistent with the Quran, as they are not contradicted by the Quran itself.
“In the context of the current wars in Syria and Iraq, the idea of ‘killing non-fighting people,’ which is an idea that was very prevalent in the early days of the wars, is not at all an issue,” Fadslallah said in an interview.
But he also said the concept of the right to self-defense is inconsistent with the teachings.
“The idea of killing someone for ‘wrong’ thoughts is not the same as the idea that you have the right not to be harmed for ‘wanting to kill people,'” he said.
On Thursday, the Saudi government, the official website of the country’s top religious authority, issued a statement in which it accused the Oxford Center for Islamic Scholars of publishing the book.
King Salman, the king of Saudi Arabia, said in the statement that the book’s publication would undermine the “strong and steadfast ties” the Kingdom has with the United Kingdom.
He also said that the “unfounded” allegations would harm the country and its Muslim citizens.
The Saudi government also issued a separate statement saying it would continue to hold the Oxford group responsible for any “wrongly perceived” content in the book that “inflicts damage to the country, the people, and our religious values.”
The Saudi government and other Islamic leaders have been calling on Western countries to halt the flow of refugees into the kingdom.
Many refugees have fled to Europe, where they have been barred from boarding flights.
The Oxford University Centre for Islam Studies says it is also a supporter of the Saudi-led coalition that is fighting in Syria, which has sent troops to the kingdom to fight the Islamic State group.
Last week, the Islamic Society of North America said it will cancel the 2019 annual meeting of its international council because of the threats against the West.
It is one of the largest U.N. agencies dedicated to promoting Islam.
A new book from the Oxford Oxford Center was not the only new book released this week.
Two books by the University of Pennsylvania law school also showed signs of being out of sync with the world at large.
The first, The Global Threat: The Hidden History of Islamic Extremism, by Benjamin Weidman, was published in February.
The second, The War Against the West: The Inside Story of Islam’s War Against Humanity, by Charles Murray, was released last week.
Both books are published by Oxford University, and both focus on the same issue, the rise of Islamism.
Murray is an expert on the rise and rise of radical Islamism, but he argues that while the ideology of Islamic extremism is a serious threat, it is largely misunderstood by Westerners.
Both books are highly critical of Western policies and
