Let me agree with Dr Pipes that 2.0 is the more dangerous approach. The use of violence in radical islam is based on law, sharia that is. There is no essential difference to the use of juridical and police violence, even if it is only be means of intimidation. in any western state in order to reinforce law by either intimidation, regulation or punishment. Here lies the danger of 2.0 . Once successful it can make use of legitimate state violence of the host western country. If say, they achieve reserved muslim parking spots and I use one, wouldn't I pay a fine, wouldn't the state come after me with everything there is in case I refuse to obey again and again ? Sharia law does exceed our laws with the vigilante violence it allows for. As for the juridical perspective also there would be no equality before the law, no freedom of speech, especially not in court. The 2.0 approach will, if not stopped , establish the latter three defects in public life.
