Quo Vadis Islam?

I just finished listening to a Sam Harris podcast where he interviews one Sarah Haider, (Ex-Muslims of North America), on the subject of the difficulties facing Muslim apostates. Towards the end of the discussion they spoke about the possibility of reform within Islam, in the same way Christianity has changed over the years.

Sarah was skeptical about the possibility of this due to the inflexibility one faces when trying to interpret the Koran. As distinct from the Bible the Koran is meant to be the actual word of God. Only some small parts of the Bible are.

I was somewhat disappointed to here this. I was hoping the reform of the Islamic faith would result in it's splintering into thousands of different flavours like Christianity. Divide and conquer!
