How can this guy not be in the Administration?

Reader comment on item: The Worst Book of 2007?

Submitted by Charles Martel (United States), Sep 25, 2007 at 10:04

A career diplomat, a big business partner and seditious sell-out to Islam for money who is not in the Administration?

He has the perfect credentials for the Bush White House -- I'm surprised he doesn't have a policy post to forward Moslem interests while the getting is good.

Maybe he's a Democrat and will do the same things when Bush's incompetence hands it to Hillary next year?

I'm curious about Dr. Pipes citing this as a statement that should be refuted: "Al-Qaeda is basically a Muslim Brethren offshoot." I would say that is true -- Extreme Sunnis certainly influenced by MB thinker Qutb.

Daniel Pipes replies:

There are various schools of Sunni Islamism, of which the MB, the Wahhabis, and Deobandis are the most influential. Al-Qaeda is mostly a Wahhabi phenomenon, with some influences from the other schools, to be sure.
