Dr. Pipes,

Very interesting article.

Mourad Wahba is a professor of philosophy at 'Ain Shams University in Cairo. I believe he is in his mid nineties so he is not a young man. He has been warning everyone who is listening about radical Islam and now the Arabs, not only in Egypt, are also listening.

Here is a video of his lecture about "The Fate of Radical Islam" in UAE and this lecture was two years ago. The title of the lecture is "محاضرة | "مصير الإسلام السياسي or Lecture: The Fate of Political Islam

Here is the lecture in Arabic


And here is a very good translation to English of the lecture


I urge your readers to watch it. And I suspect that most universities in the "Land of the Free" aka USA will not allow such topic or discussion and Mourad Wahba will be regarded as the creepy "Islamophobe" nonsense.

Notice that the Arabs attending the lecture are really very concerned about how to deal with radical Islam and why does the liberal West seem to adore terrorist groups the likes of the Muslim Brotherhood. He also reminds his listeners that Obama had "six members of the MB as his advisors." And he tells not just the Arab world but also all of the world that the Muslim Brotherhood is not just a local terrorist group but it is present all over the globe.

BTW: Although Prof Wahba is a Copt originally from Upper Egypt, still the Arabs are seeking his advise with regard to how to deal with the likes of the Muslim Brotherhood and radical Islam and at the same time follow a path of moderate Islam

Prof Wahba tells his audience to get rid of the terrorist idol Ibn Taymiyya and adopt instead Ibn Rushd (Avicenna) as the real guide to a moderate and progressive Islam

Very wise advise, but would it work?
