Reader comment on item: Debating the Khalil Gibran International Academy

Submitted by Edward Halper (United States), May 18, 2008 at 18:08

Elliot, Almontaser, and NPR paint opposition to the school as motivated by anti-Arab sentiment. They do not respond adequately to Dr. Pipes' comment.

They also don't afford Pipes a chance to comment on the Michigan State materials that Almontaser claims they were going to use. Are you familiar with this material?

Daniel Pipes replies:

No, I am not familiar with the Michigan State materials.

You are exactly right about the lack of debate: I raise issues of substance and am replied to with name-calling.
