I agree that it would be good to reconcile Islamic values with 21st century understandings, such as they are, of tolerance for diverse cultures and beliefs.  But it always seems that movements that emphasize tolerance and compassion and that originate among elites of a given society and religion have a nasty way of being followed by fundamentalist backlashes among the not-so-elite. Wish it weren't so....
