Dr Pipes

Very true the Islamic historical/literary tradition has always regarded Muhammad as a demigod but it seems to be more acute now than ever before and i'm not sure why

And yes there are potential reformers of Islam the likes of Sayed el-Qimni and Islam el-Buhiri in Egypt and many atheists in Saudi Arabia but you will notice that they avoid criticizing Muhammad

However Sayed el-Qimni now calls Futuh Masr (The Opening of Egypt or the Arab invasion of Egypt in 642CE) as imperialism and colonialism and he seems to get away with it and we all know change starts with taking one single step and getting away with it I believe that Muslims know very well that reforming Islam could be its end
