Majority Islam

In the following video, Hussein Aboubakr makes the case that moderate Islam isn’t majority Islam. He suggests at the end that Islam can be reformed to become moderate, and the West can play a part in that reform, “but only if it tells the truth” (that moderate Islam is the minority).

This is an uneasy concession. If the West was going to tell the truth, it would “tell the truth” about religion in general, not just Islam: that it’s a regressive force that gets in the way of truth itself.
