Yes Dr. Jackson would be great. If you're looking for American born scholars Dr. Umar Abd Allah of the Nawawi Foundation would also be great. Icould name many others but obviously it would depend specifically what one was looking for.

I'm sure Mr. Wright would love to have Tariq Ramadan on. Maybe he and Paul Berman could have a diavlog?

Actually, some of the most interesting detailed thinking and writing taking seriously the theoretical issues involved in the question of whether Muslims committed to the Shari'ah can be loyal citizens in western secular democracies is from non-Muslim academic Andrew March of Yale.

As a student of Islamic thought and traditional orthodox believer I find such discussions fascinating. Of course, one should not lose sight of the fact that most everyday Muslims, in America or anywhere else, do not base their decisions or actions on deep understanding of the Shari'ah or intellectually thinking through the profound issues involved. Which doesn't mean the theoretical discussions have no relevance, just that one must always keep both the theology (ideal) and the sociology (reality/practical) in mind as well.
