Islam defines merely being non-Muslim as an insult to Islam
While I think that Islam is a danger to thought, you should read the Koran before you make claims like this. They believe that non-Muslims are self deluded and Muslims have the duty to enlighten them using arguments of value. No where in the Koran does it speak of violence except as in return of violence. Even Sura #9 explains that the sword is used to defend not convert. Islamic conversion is a personal thing not what some idiots say in some radical Mosque.
I have underlined the word read because the only real way to experience the Koran is to listen to its recitation. But, you have to be able to understand Arabic for that.
Note on the Koran;
Over the years I have heard recitations of the Koran. While I don't understand what is being said the recitation itself is executed using a melodic voice. There are recordings of recitations on-line.
