Reader comment on item: Can Islam Be Reformed?

Submitted by cmtljnpkirptsvji1683 (Philippines), Jul 1, 2013 at 23:08

Dr. Pipes,

Christians and Jews were able to modernise because Jesus and some of the jewish prophets preached Love and mercy.So basically they did not have go against the words of their prophets.

But Mohammed preached hatred and death, so if Islam has to be reformed , then they have to reject their prophet which sounds highly unlikely.
