Dr. Pipes, you know very well that Islam is what is in Quran and how it was practised by the prophet which is in hadeeses and history books. Islam was not violent and militant at all for first 13 years in Mecca as indicated by 87 mecca verses of Quran and the prophet's actions. He preached tolerance and peace. Islam became violent and militant in Madina as indicated by the final 27 Madina verses of Quran which promote violence against nonmuslims and abrogate the earlier peaceful Mecca verses ( often quoted by apologists like Karen Armstrong, etc). Prophet and muslims continuosly attacked , killed, looted and enslaved non- muslims after migrating to Madina. Therefore militant islam was born in Madina in the year 622 A.D. and not 1920 A.D. as you claim. For references please check out Dr. Ali Sina's website "faithfreedom.org".
