Robert Spencer: Blogging the Qur’an

Starting Sunday, May 27, 2007 Michelle Malkin's Hot Air has been sponsoring a new series to foster discussion as well as become a resource for anyone who wants to know more about the Qur’an (or Koran) and its role in the Islamic world and in the ideology of al Qaeda and other terrorist groups, as well as its place in the lives of a billion Muslims worldwide.

Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch blogs the Qur’an as he reads through it, bringing the Hadiths and Islamic teachings and traditions into the discussion. Robert engages readers’ questions and responses in the comments.

Robert Spencer read the Qur’an for the first time in 1981 and has been studying it and the Islamic traditions and teachings that inform students of the Qur’an ever since.

Highlights this week include why the life of a Jew or a Christian is worth less than that of a Muslim, and the endpoint of jihad warfare.
