Quotes and Sayings

About the Region, Islam and cultural totalitarianism...

    When I examined the Koran, the hadith, and the Islamic books under a microscope, I came to the absolute conviction that it is impossible–impossible–for any human being to read the biography of Muhammad and believe in it, and yet emerge a psychologically and mentally healthy person…The language of Islam is a negative, dead language, replete with violence, anger, hatred, and racism.

    — Wafa Sultan, Excerpt from an interview on Al-Hayat TV on May 29, 2008
