O expert of Islam, what is reality then? Do tell us, Ahmed, if you are so intent on criticizing Dr. Pipes, what is reality?

Is reality the idea that Libyan, Palestinian and Turkish leaders want to take over Europe by demographic overwhelming while you sit on here and put out your hands and say "no, no, that's not it! you've got it all wrong!"

Is it reality that Islam is a religion of peace? But what is peace, Ahmed? You accuse Dr. Pipes of inneundos?

Peace is the ultimate innuendo of Islam. Why? Because in your Median Islam, peace means having the entire world under sharia law, and with such strict rules and punishment, which no one would even dare to question it or disobey it. Oh yes, the word Islam is derived from a root word meaning peace, but we have a saying here in the West: actions speak louder than words.

You try, although unsuccessfully, to come across as an innocent, inquisitive Muslim. But I can read between the lines of your posts, Ahmed. Your mind is not as hidden as you would like.

Indeed, you do seem disturbed by Dr. Pipes' accurate assessment of what really happens. If so many Muslims are on here trying to counter him, then he must be doing something right. I mean, people from India, the UAE, Pakistan, everywhere. It's not just Muslims, either, oh no, Dr. Pipes has had to endure much from the Western liberals on college campuses and the media, as he has shared with us.
It's almost like they are worried--no, not just worried, scared to death about what Dr. Pipes has to say.

Whoever thought that such ideas could be so threatening?

I find that fascinating, and it just confirms what I already knew.
