What worries me...

Reader comment on item: Stop the NYC Madrassa

Submitted by Homefront (Australia), Aug 20, 2007 at 19:37

Dr Pipes,

What worries me is that the establishment in NYC was unable to dissect "Debbie's" politics until she was associated with the intifada t shirt incident. Instead of demonstrating any level of analytical ability and examining the woman's past and present political affiliations the establishment reacted on a purely visceral level to the word "intifada" and its implications.

These idiotarians in power would likely back MEK (the opposition party) in Iran merely because they have a more liberal attitude towards veil wearing even though they are as much a band of Islamist lunatics as the people in power. If we want to make any positive progress in this war we have to be able to dig a little more deeply when trying to seperate friend from foe.

Homefront.
