This portion catches my eye:
Verses 56-85 continue excoriating the unbelievers, who are motivated by nothing but pride (v. 56) – an oft-repeated Qur'anic trope that has led many Muslims through the ages and today to assume that non-Muslims know the truth of Islam but reject it out of selfish self-interest.
There is a parallel prejudice one finds in politics: some partisans, assuming that the benefits of certain policies are self-evident, conclude that all opposition to said policies is rooted in malice. I suepect we'll be seeing a lot of that in Denver this week.
