Muslim moderation: Mission impossible?

The whole issue of whether Islam can be reformed is a hot topic, in Muslim and non-Muslim circles. After all, for people of good will, we surely hope, wish, desire, pray, for a more “Moderate Islam”, one which does not see its main aim as being to become the supreme religion in the world, supremacicist in nature. To change that, if at all possible, would be wonderful.

My leftie-liberal friends assume it’s only a matter of time. That Christianity had its Reformation and that Islam will have its, in due course.

I’m not so optimistic.
