This act was Monstrous!

There is really no hope for this insane medieval epistomology nor the iron age predecessors from which it was plagiarised.

Christopher Hitchens put the case eloquently

It (the Quran) makes immense claims for itself, invokes prostrate submission or "surrender" as a maxim to its adherents, and demands deference and respect from nonbelievers into the bargain (Or we'll kill you). There is nothing—absolutely nothing—in its teachings that can even begin to justify such arrogance and presumption.
