Tunisian Philosopher Mezri Haddad: Islamists 'Have Reduced the Koran to a Nauseating Antisemitic Lampoon'

Direct from MEMRI, of course.

Actually, Mr. Haddad has it wrong: the Koran is a nauseating anti-Semitic (and anti-everybody-else) lampoon. But he's right about the excuses that anti-Semitism provides for Arab self-pity. Furthermore, he opts for a complete rejection of Islamic theocracy--though I suspect that he's just being a dedicated secularist when he says that.
