The pacification of Islam

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

Submitted by Terry R (Australia), Aug 14, 2002 at 22:38

I must agree with you , Daniel that we, the world community' should become involved with the pacification (for want of a better word) of Islam. For too long this religions' hardliners have been left alone with the hope that they will catch up with the rest of the world , economically, socially and morally. However, as the hardliners have stated (with their actions at the WTC), this is a flawed policy. Hopefully with the impending defeat of Iraq, a new democratic Muslim society in this region will act as a springboard for democracy in the region.
