Reader comment on item: Can Islam Be Reformed?

Submitted by Duard Hamm (United States), Jul 1, 2013 at 20:51

Islam has institutionalized violence, intolerance, supremacism and hate in the Quran, Ahadiths and other sacred texts of the religion. If by some miracle, you could eliminate these elements of jihad, the tool which drives it, Islam would not be reformed, it would disintegrate and cease to exist. Islam is built on the "five pillars" and the five pillar are held up by the sixth pillar: Jihad. Remove jihad and all of Islam crumbles like a house of cards.
