Dr. Pipes

I urge you and the readers to watch this video and this is a speech by el-Sisi at al-Azhar university and the occasion is the celebration of Moulid el-Nabi or Muhammad's birthday and here is the title of the video

كلمة السيسي في احتفال المولد النبوي : هناك نصوص دينية مقدسة تعادي الدنيا كلها محتاجين ثورة ديني

Or el-Sisi speech in the celebration of the prophet's birthday: There are (Islamic) holy religious texts that tells us that the rest of the world is (our) enemy and we need a religious revolution

And here is the video

And notice that at minute 2:15 there are women in the audience that do not wear hijabs inspite of the fact that this speech was delivered at al-Azhar!

And here is a very interesting article about the speech

And the title of the article is: We need a religious revolution

And to quote the Quranic وشهد شاهد من اهلها or and it is the testimony of a witness from among its people (read this in this case as Muslims) that Islam ineed needs to be reformed not by us kuffar but by Muslims

el-Siis wants to seem Islam being reformed and made a tolerant religion

This is just amazing

You are right that it is a noteworthy speech. But I offer a more skeptical take on it at http://www.danielpipes.org/15430/sisi-islam-reform
