Baron Bodissey correctly observes:

Geert Wilders is clear and forthright in his explanation of the Doctrine of Abrogation. He is also correct: the later verses of the Koran abrogate and nullify the earlier verses. As it happens, all the peaceful verses were later abrogated by the violent verses, which exhort the faithful to behead infidels and take their property as war booty.

Daniel Pipes has studied Islam for forty-five years. He is able to quote “there is no compulsion in religion” in Arabic. Yet oddly enough, he seems completely unfamiliar with the Doctrine of Abrogation, which is the juridical backbone of all four schools of Sunni Islamic law.

The following abbreviated explanation of abrogation is drawn in large part from the comprehensive research of Major (ret.) Stephen Coughlin, the pre-eminent American expert on Islamic law.

This is what Imran Ahsan Khan Nyazee has to say about abrogation in Islamic Jurisprudence:[1]

The law was laid down in the period of the Prophet (peace be unto him) gradually and in stages. The aim was to bring a society steeped in immorality to observe the highest standards of morality. This could not be done abruptly. It was done in stages, and doing so necessitated repeal and abrogation of certain laws.
