Islam will change only after they have their "Jihad"...

Reader comment on item: Islam's Future [Can Be Modern]

Dear Mr. Pipes,

I agree with you that Islam will change one day, but I believe that the fundamentalists will have their "Jihad" with the West first. Having bloviated on their inherent superiority, and morality, and the West's inferiority and wickedness, and also the endless rhetoric on their sworn duty to rid "Palestine" of Israel for so long and so loud, that their collective egos will not allow them to simply adopt a new out look because it is the logical thing to do. Logic is these guys' Kryptonite. They have shouted themselves into a corner. They have given themselves no other option. So they will muster their righteousness, pray to Allah for the strength only Allah can give the devout muslim, yada yada yada, then they will seek us out and when we are on our knees before them, they will swing thier mighty sword, JIHAD at the American infidel. But guess what? When the blade lands, it will shatter like fine China. Yes, any kind of Islamic Jihad will be a paper tiger. They have ignored science, democracy, and capitalism for far too long, and can no longer even stand on the same battlefield as the U.S. of A. they are no real threat to this great nation. They don't even realize that the only reason they have the meager power that they do, is because we have allowed them to have it. Now, after we, as The Rock would say, lay the smackdown on all their candy-asses, hopefully the truly moderate Muslim will rise from the ashes of their former Jihad folly. If and when that happens, they will find themselves being helped back up onto their own two feet by their former Great Satan. Only this time I think they will see a friend, not an infidel.
