WSJ Article: "Islam's Improbable Reformer" (i.e. The Case for Sisi as Muslim Conservative, not Islamist)

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

Submitted by PezDispenser (Israel), Mar 22, 2015 at 14:39

Islam's Improbable Reformer

"The real Islamic religion grants absolute freedom for the whole people to believe or not believe. Never does Islam dictate to kill others because they do not believe in Islam. Never does it dictate that [Muslims] have the right to dictate [their beliefs] to the whole world. Never does Islam say that only Muslims will go to paradise and others go to hell."

"Jabbing his right finger in the air for emphasis, he adds: "We are not gods on earth, and we do not have this right to act in the name of Allah."
