Picking on Muhammed and the Koran Is Foolhardiness and Cowardess

Mr. Pipes.

There is no doubt that you feature as one of the greatest scholars of history and politics of this century I must hand you that. Only I can't get to what type of an author you really are besides an antagonistic realist whose truth is mingled ... We read your blogs with a pinch of salt. We disagree with not what you say but with how you say it and what you intend by saying what you say. You conversely prove much of what you say as true from what you diligently attempt to disprove. ...

The call you made and the marshal of your compeers to publish cartoons of Prophet Muhaamed and to burn the Quran on a daily bases is nothing but foolishness ... Reason being you ridicule the greatness man who ever lived by unanimous agreement and a man for who's reason you and the entire universe were created in the first place. ... in picking on a man who lays peacefully in his tomb and a book that hands no tongue to speak for its self or hands to defend its self just as is the case with Prophets Abraham, David, Solomon, Moses and others along with their holy scriptures. Out of more than 7 billion Muslims in the world, it is only a small percentage that will take up arms and sock the daylights ... for pulling such cheap tactics as to promote "Mohammed cartoon day" and go on a Koran burning rampage.

The vast majority are sober-minded Muslims who bear the Holy Koran in their hearts and acknowledge the fact that by trying to insult Islam and its Prophet is like trying to spit at the moon whilst standing on planet earth. ... This is Allah's universe. His Globe and world. ...

Daniel Pipes replies:

This one is posted in comedic mode, especially the bit about 7 billion Muslims. I guess every human and some other mammals are all Muslims.
