Islamic preacher ripped for reform push

by Dragon / March 20, 2006 10:20 AM PST

CAIRO, Egypt (AP) -- Islamic televangelist Amr Khaled is young, smiling, teaches love and mercy and is so popular he's credited with inspiring thousands of women -- turned off by dour, traditional clerics -- to take on the veil.

Now he's putting his popularity on the line by trying a new role, as a bridge between Islam and the West at a time when many are talking about a clash of civilizations.

In the process, Khaled is sometimes telling the faithful what they're not used to hearing from clerics -- that Muslims aren't blameless in tensions, that the West is not always bad and that dialogue is better than confrontation.

..."Body of Islamic televangelist Amr Khaled found."

I really believe (and have said here before) that Islam needs its version of Martin Luther. However, while Luther had Frederick of Saxony to "kidnap" him and keep him safe, Amr Khaled has no such protector.

There will be no peace with Islam until the radicals who control it are dead or forced to abdicate their positions...

the radical Muslims really don't desire pece, and they don't want change either! When the women realize they will no longer be chattels to the men, maybe things will change

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
