Centralization of Islam is not the answer

Western governments are being fooled by Jordanian, Egyptian and GCC regimes that the answer is the centralization of Islam.  In fact, Islam was flexible when it was decentralized. The modern centralization of Islam at the hand of the Saudi regime have only pushed the fanatical, exclusivist, misogynistic, hateful, and violent interpretations of religious texts.  The ability of the lay people to challenge fanaticism has been aborted by those modern Saudi efforts to control all Muslim religious establishments in every country in the Muslim world.
