The reason that I say reforming moderate Islam is impossible is because of the problem of the text Islam comes from. The reason we had a reformation in the Christian world that worked is because we got back to the pure Word of God. If the muslims were to go back to the pure word of the Koran along with the hadiths you would have 1.2 billion Osama Bin Ladens. The reason I say that is because pure Islam is the faith of Osama Bin Laden.

The only way to come up with a new moderate Islam is you would have to rewrite the Koran and the Hadiths. Because they say in them to kill the Christians and Jews wherever you find them. Mohammed's method of killing was beheading, which he personally did thousands that are recorded. The perfect role model according to the Koran is Mohammed's life. The reason you have moderate Islamists is because they are ignorant of their religion. But that is coming to an end the more that the radicals terrorize and publish there doings on the internet.

The more they do these things the more moderate Muslims will read their quotations of the Koran and see that they are actually doing the will of Allah and Mohammed according to the Koran.

I wish there was a way to produce moderate muslims, but according to their traditions and scripture, if they get back to the fundamentals will not happen. Because basic Islam is the religion of what the west calls radical Islam.
