“Daniel Pipes is wrong, much as it pains me to say it. I wish, in fact, he wasn’t. But in his article in the NY Sun, Ban Islam? he closes with: ‘Islam is not the enemy, but Islamism is. Tolerate moderate Islam, but eradicate its radical variants.’
“What variant? The Koran is a violent document. The call to jihad, to kill non believers and Islamic Jew hatred in the Koran is well documented. This is not a variant, this is a tenet of Islam and Islamic jihad. To imply or state differently is simply inaccurate.
“I would like to feel all warm and fuzzy and embrace the moderate Muslim/ meme but they show no evidence of their existence – not in any real number anyway. The only voices of reason in the Muslim world are lapsed Muslims or apostates.”
