Minds of the Debaters

Reader comment on item: Debate about possible war between Israel and Hamas

Submitted by Stephen B. (United States), Nov 24, 2012 at 10:57

Islamic leaders refer to O'Keefe as a "useful idiot." I say he is that, and he is also an uneducated man who is angered by his own misconceptions. He would do well to study real history rather than allow himself to be caught up in Islamic propaganda. He is either incredibly stupid or paid handsomely to lie for Islamists.

Mormach was born into the fateful trap of Islam, which teaches that Muslims are superior to kafirs (non-Muslims) intellectually, morally, and ethically. He, too, would do well to read real history. He is trapped, however, by the smothering restrictions of his family and neighbors. He risks being accused of blasphemy or apostasy if he dares study facts outside the world of Islam. And the penalty for blasphemy or apostasy, under Islamic (Shariah) Law is death.

Daniel Pipes is well-educated and has spent a lifetime studying Islam and its influence on peoples and governments. His studies have not been restricted by any dogma or pressures of any kind. He is known for his thorough research and his honesty.. Thank you, Daniel Pipes, for taking part in this discussion.
