Yes, but......

Reader comment on item: The Clash to End All Clashes?

In you article you stated,"And, however weak they may presently be, they eventually will have a crucial role in modernizing the Muslim world."

Yes, this could be true. But.....if and only if they are allowed to live long enough to be able to swing Islamic opinion to their side. Unfortunately, there are about 800+ years of history of that civilization and religious rulings that contradict you. I hold no hope whatsoever that we will ever be able to wait long enough for a reform to a "peaceful" religion. Islam is not, has never been, nor will it ever be a peaceful religion.
