in response to reader comment: I'm sorry Dr Pipes

Hi Will you make a good point.

However, I urge you to read Albert Hourani's outstanding book "The Liberal age"

http://www.amazon.com/Arabic-Thought-Liberal-Age-1798-1939/dp/0521274230

And you will realize that the Islam that we see today is not the Islam that humanity had during the "liberal age" of Albert Hourani and this was taking place less than 100 years ago so indeed Islam can change and it did change and will continue to change

And yes Islam and its theology and its history are not pretty but the way Muslims view Islam is not static and the evidence is indeed the liberal age! And yes I cannot speak for Dr. Pipes but what he is saying and it makes lots of sense

Submitting....
