islam can never be reformed because its BOOKS are violence on paper. If you want to reform islam, you must completely change its books.

THAT IS THE PROBLEM... we have so many "muslims" running aorund speaking about islam, which is according to the folk part of it they were taught by their mom and dad. Less than 1% ever reads the Koran in Arabic, so they do NOT KNOW the evils therein to even reform itl. We kep hearing them ddeny this or that, and what we need is for everyone to agree, IF WE ARE EVER GOING TO DISCUSS ISLAM, IT WILL HAVE TO BE ABOUT WHAT IS WRITTEN IN ITS BOOKS.

It does no good for you to tell me about the Koran if I say I am a muslim and was not raised to believe x, y or z, You find it in the Koran and are trying to talk to me about it, but since I have never read the Koran, I can stay in denial as long as I want to.
