CAIR: ROBERTSON CALLS QURAN ‘FRAUDULENT,’ REMARK ANGERS MUSLIMS
WASHINGTON (AP) — An American Muslim group is criticizing Virginia Beach religious broadcaster Reverend Pat Robertson for suggesting that the Quran, rather than being a divine revelation, was a fraudulent creation of Muhammad to justify his own actions.
On his television show “The 700 Club” last Thursday, Robertson also said “violent jihad” is a core Islamic teaching, and he said Islam is not a religion of peace.

Ibrahim Hooper, spokesman for the Council on American-Islamic Relations, says Muslims who hear such statements may conclude that their faith is under attack from America.
