Still believe that Islam is a "Religion of Peace", and can reform it's violent fringe? Jason Pappas has something you should read then.

He does an excellant job of demonstrating that Islam just cant reform itself, when he says in a comment subsequent to this post:

"..I’m not arguing that Christianity guarantees a peaceful society with tolerance and respect for individual rights. My argument aims at something more modest: that Christian doctrine and the example of Jesus are not great impediments to the option of such a peaceful society. Thus, the choice, which I hope Christians will take, of creating liberal democracy doesn’t require tremendous logical contortions and self-deception."

"Islam is a political ideology and Muhammad ruled oppressively. Can Islam choose individual rights and liberty with universal respect in a pluralistic society? Not without great contradiction to the ideology. It’s just not an option in Islam."
