The Qu’ran: Ten Tricky Verses (satire)


The Qu’ran: Ten Tricky Verses (satire)


This satiric website imagines Osama Bin Laden's misinterpretations of this sacred text's verses, to ensure that its followers do not "misconstrue" the Qu'ran "as a call for amity among people of different faiths, rather than a summoning of forces in preparation for an all out Jihad." For example, it explains that although the Qu'ran commands us to do good, interpreting that instruction can be "tricky." Just as candy bars are delicious but not good for you, crashing a plane into a building only sounds bad." Warning: This website may be particularly offensive to some visitors.
