Should the Koran be Banned?

I keep hearing calls for banning the Koran. I disagree with this, and I think it's a mistake. First of all, I don't like banning literature in general. Second of all, I think it is to our advantage if people can read the Koran. I've put up links to all the most important Islamic texts, including 8 English Koran translations and several Scandinavian ones. I want people to read them. Another issue is the blatant hypocrisy of what constitutes "hate speech" for Muslims and non-Muslims. This proposed law in the Ummah Kingdom is awful:

Christian group may seek ban on Qur'an

A Protestant evangelical pressure group has warned that it will try to use the government's racial and religious hatred law to prosecute bookshops selling the Qur'an for inciting religious hatred. Christian Voice, a fringe fundamentalist group which first came to public prominence this year when it campaigned against the BBC's broadcasting of Jerry Springer The Opera, was among the evangelical organisations taking part in a 1,000-strong demonstration against the bill outside parliament yesterday as the House of Lords held a second reading debate on the measure. Its director, Stephen Green, said the organisation would consider taking out prosecutions against shops selling the Islamic holy book. He told the Guardian: "If the Qur'an is not hate speech, I don't know what is. We will report staff who sell it. Nowhere in the Bible does it say that unbelievers must be killed." The bill has seen a wide range of Christian groups making common cause with secularists. Most of the Christian running against the bill has been made by evangelical groups.

This cristians will not succeed. It was tried in India with Koran but hindus failed.
Too much fear to a satanic sect with so many milions adepts.

Yes, but even worse, when the koran was used to demonstrate the depths of its own hatred, two pastors in Australia were prosecuted and found guilty of inciting religious hatred. And they were FORMER moslems.

OT:
Rape wave in Trondheim

Trondheim's St. Olav's Hospital reports receiving a dramatic increase in the number of rape victims this year.

South-Trøndelag County police can confirm the trend. So far there have been twice as many rapes and attempted rapes reported this year, compared to 2004.

Psychiatric nurse Eva Aagaard at the hospital's rape reception center cannot explain the enormous increase, and has not noted any pattern.

The nurse has no explanation. Perhaps Fjordman noticed a pattern.

The Koran should not be banned. It should be published openly to show the world that the hatred towards "infidels" is not confined to a few radicals but is a standard of the Islam religion

re- banning the burqa on security grounds

India first female bomber

A senior security official had this to say -
"It is easier for women to pass the security forces because they are not checked as thoroughly and often hide arms under the full body coverings, traditionally worn by Muslim women, said one senior police official, who asked not to be named because he was not authorized to speak on the subject."

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20051013/ap_on_re_as/kashmir_female_bomber_2;_ylt=Al5yuOMwmkGwJJIkxvrrpOvGe50v;_ylu=X3oDMTBiMW04NW9mBHNlYwMlJVRPUCUl

No real argument here. Given the reluctance by security personnel to even look at a muslim woman, it is easy for her to carry weapons or explosives to jihadis or use them herself.
