Egyptian President Calls for ‘Religious Revolution’ in Islam | Washington Free Beacon

JERUSALEM—In a speech on New Year’s day, Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi called for a “religious revolution” in Islam that would displace violent jihad from the center of Muslim discourse.

“Is it possible that 1.6 billion people (Muslims worldwide) should want to kill the rest of the world’s population—that is, 7 billion people—so that they themselves may live?” he asked. “Impossible.”

Al-Sisi is calling for exactly the kind of religious reformation Islam needs to join the modern civilized world.

I predict he’ll either “clarify” his comments or be assassinated shortly.

  1. I think you can confidently predict that someone will try to kill him. But, it’s hammer and togs between him and the Muslim Brotherhood anyway. I don’t think he will lose anything by saying what he did. They want his hide anyway.
