No Hope for Islam, Jaladhi... I'd like you to comment on another piece I wrote

Hello again,

I commented the article Turkey vs. Iran, in which Dr. Pipes suggests, that Turkey may be the actual battlefield and should be considered as even more dangerous than Iran.

I myself come to utterly different conclusions and offered my arguments under http://www.danielpipes.org/comments/180583, where I address Iran foremost, and then later under
http://www.danielpipes.org/comments/180740, where I focus on Turkey, deriving my individual conclusion that any slim chance for an emergence of so called moderate Islam would originate from precisely this nation.

Especially the latter article " in defense " of Turkey, may cause some controversy, which is why I would love to hear from one of the truly knowledgeable people here, like you.

Sadly indeed, that none of my questions were answered by Muslims, let alone scholars or teachers or even an Imam. Ive tried several times and cannot help but ask myself, if the reason is lack of courage or lack of arguments. I so very much would have hoped to enter into a respectful, fact based debate with some Muslims or even theologues, but they evidently do not hang out here....;) Thus a mountain of evidencde is presented here burying them unanswered. Oh well...

Submitting....
