THE HAGUE, 27/05/08 - The Amsterdam police corps is giving its officers a discount if they buy the Koran translation of writer Kader Abdolah. Officers should thereby be encouraged to get a better insight into Islam, according to a corps spokesman.
Abdolah says he translated the Koran to make the book accessible to the Dutch. The book of the Iranian-Dutch author was published at the end of last month by publisher De Geus.
Officers who buy the book pay half price. The other half is paid out of the Amsterdam police budget. Officers are not obligated to read the book, the police spokesman did say.

This koran is a 'progressive' koran, meaning they cut away most of the bad stuff. So basicly it's no koran at all...

Wow, forcing a European to read any religious book — a reather odd concept.
Hmmmm . . wonder what Muslims think of Amsterdam’s red light district.
And if you act now we’ll throw in a collectors edition set of joseph smith’s golden mormon plates. All for only 29.95. That’s right! Only 29.95. Operators are standing by so CALL NOW!

Obviously..., all condemn the "decadent western civilization" (then many..., under the cover of darkness..., become patrons!)

“...get a better insight into Islam...”
Watching the various footage of 9-11, and any beheading video should accomplish that quite nicely, IMO.

I wonder just how much pressure is put on these officers to read the mad ravings of their false prophet.
Suggesting promotions, pay raises, etc. for officers who can recite the garbage from memory. And the opposite for those who fail to show sufficient esprit de mohammedan.
All unofficially of course...

Does a lite Koran mean it is one-ply instead of two-ply?

Though I don't think the plates are in the Book of Marmot, isn't it copyrighted?
