I am especially interested in the topic of warm Leftist-Islamist relations, but also with their bad relations and the Right's connections to Islamists. Here, with later writings added as required, is a listing of my writings on these topics:
"Khomeini, the Soviets and U.S.: Why the Ayatollah Fears America." The New York Times, May 27, 1980. A comparison of the two superpowers, as seen by the Iranian leader.
"Why the Left Loves Osama [and Saddam, Explains Lee Harris]." New York Post, March 19, 2003. An explanation of this puzzling alignment.
"The Left ♥ CAIR, MPAC, et al." DanielPipes.org, August 19, 2003. Various examples of Left-Islamist cooperation, mostly in the United States.
"The Leftist-Islamist Alliance in Pictures." DanielPipes.org, June 17, 2004. Graphic representations of the alignment.
