Koran texts, via Israel

Busy Muslims who are unable to fit in five prayers a day can now get a Koran text service — thanks to an Israeli company. Pelephone now offers users the chance to tap into verses from the Koran whenever they want for £1 a month.

What next? Old testament on demand for Jewish customers? Er, yes. Pelephone has been providing a Bible service since last year.
