I know she’s promoting her new book, and agree with her on just about everything she says about Islam, until she starts (not in this video) harping about a ”reformation” in Islam is needed as well. What we wish for and what actually happens, or is even possible, are two different things.
Islam, though it falls under the category of ”religion” is unlike all other religions, like the sport of chess and arm wrestling. Believing that ”it too” has a chance at modernity if only they forgo the key elements solely responsible for the proliferation of the desert creed, that being, jihad and sharia’s death for apostasy, it’s mugs game. It’s just not going to happen, no matter how tightly we close our eyes and hope.
NOTE: With the benefit of hindsight on what a ”reformation” and ”enlightenment” for Christianity and Judaism has led Western society, they (Muslims) will reject any such path for Islam. It’s just not going to happen.
