To Jennifer Solis: Sir Pipes' Audio Recording "Lawful Islam: The Greater Threat?" & Newsweek

Reader comment on item: Newsweek's Jaw-Dropping Erratum
in response to reader comment: "Lawful Islam"

Submitted by Ynnatchkah (United States), Oct 25, 2007 at 20:10

Dear Jennifer Solis:

First of all, Thank You.

You are right.

If you take into consideration:

A. The Lawful Islam Dr. Pipes talks about at The Herzliah meeting as Islamists "...Working within the system is the most effective way."...

http://www.danielpipes.org/article/4931

B. When Newsweek writes: "… (Dr. Pipes) Advocates for fighting Radical Islam, whether terroristic or Lawful"…

Two possibilities come into my mind:

  1. If Newsweek took in consideration the event that took place in Israel on September 09-2007 as a parameter and use the term Radical Islam whether"…" or lawful, regarding Islamists working in the system as a form of what of slow Jihad, then you find a cluster- recalling that the tern used by Dr. Pipes was not Lawful radical Islam, but Lawful Islam.
  1. If Newsweek did not consider the event that took place on September 09-2007, then ones may understand that indeed Newsweek considers (Radical Islam) as something admissible as Lawful.

So did Newsweek take as a parameter Dr. Pipes' speech in Herzliah or Not as a base for their caption?

I deeply hope I'm wrong, but I do NOT think that Newsweek took in consideration Dr. Pipes' Speech. Not b/c of my personal bias against the today media, but b/c it is very unlikely that a magazine not concerning itself about accuracy at all would devote time to listen to his speech, even for 11 minutes.

Thanks,

Ynnatchkah
