Searing indictment of the cowardice of the western elites, and their willing accomplices...

Mohammed's Koran is presented as a Koran, accompanied by a brief introduction. At first glance, it even appears to be just this. In fact, it is something quite different.

The introduction is the purpose of the book, in the same way that the payload is the purpose of a missile. I think it right to compare it to Emile Zola's "J'accuse...!", written more than a century earlier. It is a searing indictment of the cowardice of the western elites, and their willing accomplices in the media, on the path of pre-emptive surrender. All the lies and omissions we have become so used to hearing are laid out in detail. They are named as lies, in a clear, uncompromising manner.

It is a bold salvo against the greatest lie which is suffocating the west - "Islam is a religion of peace"; the lie which paralyzes us, making us unable to even recognize the threat. The purpose of this book is give the average man in the street the confidence to deny this lie when he hears it.

There is, in fact, a Koran in this book. If the introduction is the weapon, then the Koran is both cloak and shield. It shields the authors against the accusation that they have wrenched verses out of context. It forces into the foreground the Islamic concept of abrogation, without which it is impossible to resolve contradictory verses when they are quoted to you in an argument. Every abrogated verse has a line through it, with a reference to the verse which replaces it. Simple, and effective.

It functions as a cloak in the sense that it uses as camouflage the same multicultural pieties which it despises. What journalist could afford to condemn a Koran? It reeks of Islamophobia. A lot of people might be happy, in principle, to burn a book by Tommy Robinson. I'm not sure how they would handle this one. The only solution is to ignore it, but that's not so effective in this age of the internet, with ebooks to make it instantly available, and facebook/blogs/twitter to spread the word.

In short, it's a clever - perhaps brilliant - piece of propaganda in a good cause. Tommy Robinson and Peter McLoughlin have forged an effective rhetorical weapon for the counter-jihad. I hope it gains the widest possible audience. A few words ought to be said about the courage these two men have shown, in publishing this book. Perhaps some day someone will find such words.
