This French "philosopher" says that "Le Coran est un livre d'inouïe violence." and then cites the great late scholar, Maxime Rodnison, as if Rodinson would endorse his views and prejudices. Rondison was opposed to all religions; he was not a bigot. Rondinson's contributions to Islamic studies are immesurable. And many Christians in the West are capable of mocking the religious rituals of Muslims (as this guy does) and yet treat their own religious rituals with utmost respect.
