Tip Of The Iceberg

Reader comment on item: Stealth Islamist: Khaled Abou El Fadl

I would be interested to see this kind of analysis of other "moderates."

I don't know if, for example, James Zogby is considered moderate, but some of what he's written criticle of the U.S. and in defence of extremists tells me he's in the mold of El Fadl.

It is frightening that some of these people are in such sensative positions. One wonders how much damage El Fadl has already done, in the long run, in his capacity as a professor of law.

Daniel Pipes replies:

Zogby is a Christian, so clearly not an Islamist. I did a small blog on him at "James Zogby Opines on the Torah," http://www.danielpipes.org/blog/182.

For a fuller analysis of him, see Yehudit Barsky's "Is James Zogby a 'Builder for Peace'?" at http://www.meforum.org/article/429.
