respect your enemy

Reader comment on item: Terrorists Read Me

Dr Pipes, my understanding is you are trying hard to establish facts using authentic sources. The world of facts is some no-man's-land between the trenches of this conflict. Naturally the facts are for everybody, friends and enemies alike. Most important you show respect for the enemy. It is a respect well deserved as compared to people who share our beliefs but are not even willing to speak out. Obviously the enemy also respects your writings. Given that writing is your weapon in the conflict you successfully made contact with the enemy. There is the quran as the most important source of islam but what is a good source of information about islamism ? This website is one of them. As pointed out in another article leftists assign opinions to your writings that have no substance in the text. An islamist subscribing to the mailinglist does support this claim that even coming from the opposite standpoint the articles are of value.
