Have You Noticed...

Reader comment on item: The Guantánamo Arrests – What Do They Mean?

Submitted by J. Spiro (United States), Oct 3, 2003 at 14:30

Every time an Islamic spokeperson is interviewed with Dr. Pipes or any other thoughtful interlocutor, the muslim side responds in the same way: By vilifying the other party and liberal use of specious arguments.

In other words, they attack the other side and lie their heads off.

Never have I seen any Muslim being interviewed admit that there is a problem with militant Islamic ideology and that they would be happy to cooperate with authorities in ridding society of these dangerous people.

And if Ms. Eltantawi wants to play the numbers games, just compare the 19 World Trade hijackers against the 3000 people they killed and the massive damage caused. A 0.63 ratio against the 3000 shows just how few determined Islamic militants it takes to wreak havoc and untold misery.

Until, as you advise, Dr. Pipes we openly identify and label the problem, we will continue to have such silliness as the military examining all 2800 chaplains.

What a shame.
