Certainly fixing these problems is not compatible with any fundamentalist 
religious system -- good luck changing that -- here in the US, the idiots on the 
'christian' fundamentalist right have been and are actively tearing down what 
seems to be a thin veneer that represents all the gains of civil society of the 
last 50 years. I can't imagine that this is going to be 'easier' in the context 
of radical Islamic situations, or even 'normal' Islamic societies. When the 
religious system has already in place a rigid mapping of civil relation and law, 
I don't believe an 'evolution' or 'change' is possible. This would apply to all 
Abrahamic religions at least, and many others as well. I don't see any 
possibility of evolution when 'the Law' is 'the Law'. Is it possible to change 
such social systems? If someone says 'yes', I'd like to hear the plan...
