Islamic leaders should end violence

As the decades go by and Islam continues to be involved in the vast majority of wars and terrorism one asks, “why”?

Why does Islam see no problem with killing innocent people worldwide? The issue or core of the problem, we are told, is “sections of the Quran” (the Muslim bible) that are “misunderstood.”

My view is that until Islam calls a worldwide conference to edit the Quran in such a way that its very difficult to use certain Quran sections as the basis for mass murder there will be no change in violence, no peace, no reason and no attitude adjustment by the rest of the world.

Other religions have seen fit over the centuries to edit their “Bible version” a tad and even Islam (I read) had at least one “new version” Quran.

If fact, the old versions were ordered collected and destroyed long ago.

Now for the terrifying thought. So why does Islam have no leaders that see this obviously helpful move? Think on that awhile. You reached the same conclusion I have, didn’t you?
