Depends on the meaning of "reform"

It's unclear just what Hirsi Ali meant when she addressed "reform" of Judaism and Christianity. IMHO modern-day Catholics did reform in ways specifically relevant to Hirsi Ali's point. That is, Catholicism no longer preaches hatred and bigotry against non-Catholics. In particular, Catholics no longer go on Crusades to fight and kill Muslims. I wish Islam would reform itself so that it treated non-Muslims with equality. Also, Islam's treatment of women includes some appalling practices.
