Hi Dr. Pipes

Your analysis is indeed very correct

Albert Hourani's Liberal age is indeed the hope for the Muslim world and if in the case of let us say Egypt Muslims had the likes of Shiekh el-Tahtawi and Mohamed Abdo and the likes of Huda Sha3rawi and in the recent past the likes of Farag Foda and Nawal el-Sa3dawi and Prof Abu Zaid then there is hope that we might see an eclipse of the likes of the fascist el-Ikhwan el-Muslimeen after all as the old saying goes: What goes up must come down but it must come from the Muslim world

And any one that has doubt that there is indeed a debate and a lively one at that about religion and islam and politics and freedoms in the Arabic speaking world i urge them to check the web site "Modern Discussion" where there is nothing that is beyond debate so there is really hope
