The question is: true or false

Reader comment on item: "America's Chickens are Coming Home to Roost"

Submitted by Ghulam Muhammed, Mumbai (India), Mar 16, 2008 at 05:38

Dr. Pipes has merely written the whole historicity of the Phrase: Chicken coming home to roost.

One would have expected him to reason out why the phrase is not acceptable, unreasoanable and possibly malicious. To an untutored mind, the line of logic as to how violence at one place, time and practice could spread and produce its own offshoots would be natural progression of cause and effect reasoning. It is for Dr. Pipes to explain why it is not so. And no violence practice by America or Americans has produced any unwanted and unacceptable results.

Thank you for the invitation to reply to Malcolm X and Jeremiah Wright, but I don't feel compelled to do that right here.
