There is only one Islam and it is not pretty

Dr. Pipes

Thank you very much for a very good article

However I very much agree with Wafa' Sultan and Ayaan Hirsi Ali that there is only one Islam and it is called militant Islam a so called religion that has serious fault lines the likes of being anti-human, anti-women, anti-non Muslims and most important anti-reason and all these fault lines are beyond fixing (If they are fixed then Islam will fall apart) and all we kuffar can do is wait and see what happens

So what do i think would happen? Well what goes up must come down and that if the Arab world had a "Liberal age" (Albert Hourani) then it is bound to happen again after all if we examine Egypt now we would realize that Egyptians are not happy with el-ikhwan because they are not delivering the jobs or the prosperity that was promised and as for al-Shari3a: It seems that Egyptians are happy with their law which is derived from French Law

As for al-Azhar: Dr. Pipes: I regard al-Azhar as no more than a mega-kuttab with poor rote education! Oh critical thinking? It does not exist in al-Azhar and I would say that Oxford and Cambridge universities offer superior education about Islam than al-Azhar

For the readers: the word kuttab in the Arab world is really a madrassa in Pakistan and now you get the picture
