Islam and Reformation

Islam needs a great reformation. It must categorically reject violence, hatred, racism, sexism, intolerance and bigotry. When someone claiming to be a Muslim commits an atrocity such as an act of terrorism they need to face widespread condemnation from the global Islamic community. Prominent Muslims, such as heads of state, members of the government, members of royal families, celebrities, teachers and professors, and imams, sheiks and other religious leaders must seek a moderate form of Islam which rejects these barbaric values. In other words Islam must be brought fully out of the 7th century and into the 21st century! This reformation should include: rejection of dhimmitude, which is treating non-Muslims as second class citizens full respect for women and their equal status both under the law and in society a popular culture which rejects the death culture so prominent in Jihadist propaganda zero tolerance for acts of terrorism greater ecumenical and inter-faith outreach
