There's a link in the comments to the post below (H/T Cascadian) to a speech by Egypt's Al Sisi calling for an Islamic enlightenment. Well worth following.
And with reference to the Scopes Monkey case, when time allows I will be looking in detail at HMI's report on the Birmingham 'madrassas' to see what place creationism had in the schools' curricula.
This matter is so vital - as important as the Cold War - that we need a rebirth of both VOA and the BBC Arabic Service to broadcast reformed Islam deep into the heart of Saudi Arabia, Iran, Iraq and the whole middle east. The message must be skilled and relentless.
Tonight will also see the latest PEGIDA mass public witness events - with freezing weather and liberal lefty fury in opposition I will be keen to see the attendance figures.
I'm away again for a few days - if I can have patience with the tablet, and there's something interesting worth posting, I shall.
