We have discussed the idea of ‘Reformation’ in the context of modernity and then of Islam. The views here are reasonable as an interpretation of what ‘reformation’ might mean for Islam.
It doesn’t mean imposing the new atheism on Islamic civilization. The Reformation was a unique event embedded in the modern transition and there is no way to faithfully repeat the circumstances of its arising.
But it is important to insist that the castigation of jihad backfires once we realize the way the American covert system has itself provoked a great deal of violence, with the 9/11 propaganda system blaming moslems for what was finally done by Israel and the US.
