Why Islam Itself Must Go

Reader comment on item: Is Sisi Islam's Long-Awaited Reformer?

Submitted by Dave (United States), Jan 20, 2015 at 19:44

Imagine that when Sisi gave his speech to the ulema, instead of sitting on chairs in an audience, they were standing, lined up, at the edge of a cliff. What Sisi was effectively asking was that some brave soul among them change the Islamic doctrine that calls for the imposition of Sharia on the world, by violence if necessary. Who will be the first to take a step forward, only to plunge to his death off that cliff after being accused of heresy for bid'ah, or innovation?

The only practical way out of the mess that Islam has created is to get rid of Islam altogether.
