If this observer has learned any one thing from reading and reviewing the issues on Dr. Pipes' forum here, it's that Islam has struggled to remain relevant in a more comprehensive means by allowing too many negative influences over the centuries to enforce adherence to the cause when considering the evident inhumane consequences for not complying upon pain of death, strange since the replacement theology these Quranic scholars seem attached to did not understand the message of love found in the Gospel of the Jewish Savior.
Fast forward to the modern interpretations of Quranic scholarship and the divergent applications that have cost Muslims of today any sense of true fulfillment except when compelled to exercise extreme compulsions to hatred as extolled by Quranic terminology to treat others in that hatred, as opposed to the Gospel message to love and worship their God in love. The contrast is excruciatingly obvious that Islam does not teach peace at all costs, but war, implicitly and explicitly.
Further, the inconsistencies of interpretation between Sunni and Shiite, Sufism versus Wahabism, and other sub-variant pursuits does not make for understanding how Islam intends to survive. That being the case, which version does Turkish Leader Erdo─čan represent when dealing with Israel while we see that the Iranian Islamic Regime proxy Hamas (or Hizbollah, for that matter) does not seem to comprehend how that works to their advantage either. The implication is that it cannot be peacefully resolved while their ideologically contravening motives cannot agree.
The conclusion to be drawn here is that there are no amicable discussions in view, so it is only timing that appears to be in question as to when it will all fall apart and the true intentions are revealed.
