Progressive versus Reactionary Islam

http://english.al-akhbar.com/blogs/a...ctionary-islam

" I often hear Americans indignantly calling for a reformed and progressive Islam... ..Calls for reform within Islam ignore the fact that there has been a reformist and progressive Islam that dates back to the 1950s and 1960s: it was the Islam that was promoted and supported by Egypt’s Nasser regime..."

As long as there is the koran and hadiths, there will be no real progressive islam movement.

Progressive Islam is an oxymoron.

True.

Anyone who believes he/she knows of a progressive muslim perhaps turns lead into gold in his/her spare time.

Not all Muslims are violent jihadists, but an awful lot of violent jihadists do tend to be Muslim.

There is an obvious trend if one looks for it.
