No Mr. Walters, it's you that's wrong

Reader comment on item: Obama, the Middle East and Islam - An Initial Assessment
in response to reader comment: You are so right and so wrong

George, when you say "...you just waste it all away by still harping on the question whether Obama is a Muslim..." you are only displaying your ignorance of Mr Pipe's position on this subject, and repeating a malicious charge raised against him by his detractors, with essentially no foundation.

Dr. Pipes has dealt at length with this accusation here: http://www.danielpipes.org/5286/was-barack-obama-a-muslim and in many other places. Faced with a challenge to prove this charge against him, several "Journalists" have issued retractions, realising there is no basis to it.

It appears to me that the main reason Mr. Pipes "harps" on the question at all is that he is continually accused of spreading malicious vitriol against the president -- and in self-defense he devotes blog space to laying out in detail what, exactly IS is position on the subject. You do neither Mr. Pipes' work nor your own credibility any favour by repeating this silly canard. If anything you've just made it necessary for him to spend another few lines going over it again.
