No Moderate Islam

Reader comment on item: The Middle East Forum Debates Moderate Islam

Why can't these (and so many other) words "be reversed?" Because they are said...BY MUSLIMS! Your plaintive plea sounds like Obama and Kerry re Putin and Ukraine, re "we're not supposed to do things like this in the 21st century; Putin is using 19th century methods..." Apparently, Mr. Putin didn't get the memo.

Islam has been this way for 1400 years. Yes, maybe Islam can change but it won't be in our lifetimes

Daniel Pipes replies:

As I have repeatedly pointed out, Islam has indeed changed a great deal since I began studying it in 1969 - and much for the worse. If it can get worse, why not also get better?
