The Koran sanctions pillage, looting, ransom, and the rape of captive women as an incentive to join in jihad or "holy war"
The Koran allows a man to have up to four wives -- at any one time. He can divorce a wife by simply saying so 3 times
Mohammad had as many as 25 wives. One was six when they married; he was 54. He consummated the marriage when she was 9
Mohammed allowed temporary marriage "for three nights" or more, so that soldiers in the field could "marry" prostitutes
In Islam, the definition of what is "right" or "just" is not fixed, but changeable by divine decree -- enabling the most henous sins and crimes to be declared "the will of Allah"
The joys and glories of the Islamic "paradise" are tangible and sensual and include sex with virgins -- and young boys
As Mohammad progressed from visionary and teacher to warlord and ruler, his style and message became more depraved, violent and intolerant. It is these later "revelations" that are considered definitive by Islamic authorities when they conflict with earlier ones often cited for Western consumption
The Crusades were a belated military response to three centuries of Muslim aggression against Christian lands and peoples
Islam divides the world into the House of Islam (where Islam rules) and the House of War (where it doesn't). The two are permanently at war; there may be temporary truces, but peace will come only upon the completion of global conquest
When Muslims are a minority community, the Koran permits them to adopt a peaceful attitude to deceive their neighbors, until they feel strong enough to dispense with the pretense
The massacres perpetrated by Muslims in India are unparalleled in history, bigger in sheer numbers than the Holocaust

The Quran shares many stories and legends with the Bible (Adam, Noah, Abraham, etc.), but it can't really be said that it is based off it. All these stories have variations, some of them are not at all like how they were in the Bible, sometimes with completely new facts.
The format isn't the same either. The Quran is compiled the longer chapters at the beginning, and the shorter ones at the end. It does have the story of Creation, but it is not the same as in the Bible.
