While the progress of Islamic enlightenment has been dismal, it still has progressed quite a bit form 700 years ago, particularly in open progressive societies.

I wouldlove to be convinced that this is true.

Turkey, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Syria, and Pakistan, to point out just a few examples of countries that had seemed to be becoming more socially modern revert toward islamic fundamentalism suggests otherwise.

The Emirate countries have allowed a precious few liberties for the ladies, but I fully expect them to lapse when muslim radicals break free of the yolks the monarchs and iron fists still have in place.
