This interesting site was posted in a comment with regards to the Levant situation. Clearly, some Muslims desire reform. They do not hold to the beliefs espoused by Islamists and they do not feel that the current situation between Islam and the West is either acceptable or the sole fault of the West.
Initiatives like this are important. While I don't believe that attempts to reform the Koran will ever be successful, I do think that it is important for moderate Muslims to speak out. Not every Muslim is an extremist. Not every Muslim wants to conquer the world and rid it of infidels. On this matter, silence is acceptance. If one does not speak out, then that silence must be construed as agreement. If one does not speak out against an aggressor, conquest is inevitable. Those who oppose sharia must voice their concerns. This is what free speech is all about.
Sharia law is an abomination. Anyone living here who thinks it's acceptable can go and live in any of the countries where it is practiced. Sharia law is in no way compatible with western democratic values. If one wishes to enjoy the freedoms of Canadian society, they one must adhere to the laws this society sets down and not try to import foreign values (or lack thereof).
