in response to reader comment: Islamic/islamist/sharia Reform an Oxymoron

" wish I could agree with Dr. Pipes' that islam/islamist ideology and behavior are reformable. But I cannot. 1400 years of islamic history and in particular the past 40 years, to me, continue to demonstrate the ugliness, barbarity, and inhumanity of islam itself."

Agree with you Domenic!! In 1400 years, Muslims have not seen anything wrong with Islam and there is no chance they will ever see the need to reform because there is no need to change the "perfect religion" according to them. Show me Muslim who says Islam should be reformed and I will show you an apostate according to Muslims!!
