It has been repeatedly claimed that terrorist violence has nothing to do with religion and, in particular, with Islam. However, as historian and journalist Michael Wolffsohn underscores in German television talk show hart aber fair: terror does indeed have roots in the religion.

“In particular, Islam’s sacred texts and their literal interpretation constitute a problem. A critical interpretation of the original sources has not taken place to the same extent as it has with Christianity (during the Reformation) and Judaism (through rabbinic literature). That is why there is a difference between the Old Testament demanding that some Mesopotamian kingdom, which has been defunct for 2400 years, be burnt down and the Koran calling to battle against the Jews – who still actually do exist.”
