Wahhaj misses the point

Reader comment on item: Siraj Wahhaj Seeks My Validation

Submitted by Benjamin Baird (United States), May 12, 2020 at 16:44

The irony, of course, is that Wahhaj's political Islamism ensures that the Islamic world will never return to its glorious past. Islamists seek 7th century solutions to modern problems, as if a return to pre-Enlightenment times will revive Islam's former glories. As Dr. Pipes notes, Wahhaj misses the point. What a stunning omission.
