Reader comment on item: Counting Islamists

Submitted by Anne-Marie Delcambre (France), Oct 8, 2008 at 08:08

Daniel Pipes meant by Islamists, Muslims who "support militant Islam" and who wish the shari'a (Islamic law) and seek application of Islamic law.

The percentage of Islamists ? The number of Islamists ? How many Islamists ? Counting Islamists is very difficult. What to measure ? Opinion ? Attitudes ?

It is no surprising that estimates vary considerably : 5 percent, 10 percent, 20 percent of all Muslims , 50 percent ? Which number does one select ?

I believe that the number may be higher .. God (Allah) knows !

But Daniel Pipes knows all the answers . He knows what he is talking about.
