Islam and reform

"Verily never will Allah change the condition of a people until they change it themselves," reads the Koran. Neil McFarquhar writes a long one for the New York Times on the debate (pretty limited still, I would say) among Muslim scholars about Islam, violence, and reform. Tomorrow, in Morocco (with Colin Powell in attendance) a major coneference will discuss "increasing democracy and liberal principles in the Muslim world." Let’s be optimists.
