Hope for Islam

Ataba market, Islamic Quarter, Cairo, EgyptIt has been said that the world seems headed for a conflict between Islam and the rest of civilization. There may be a solution in the form of a massive western victory but it would be ugly and bloody. Victory by Islamic fascism would be uglier. Pacifist compliance by the west is not an available option.

Pacifist cooperation by the Islamic world, however, is an option. If Islam ceases to be aggressive, it can live in peace and self-sufficiency. This “speech” put in the mouth of Barack Obama is the most hopeful vision of Islamic reform I can recall.
