Edward Koch: RIP

Reader comment on item: Calling Islamism the Enemy

Dr. Pipes

It is amazing that Ed Koch was indeed able to hit the nail on the head: That unless all of humanity comes to the realization that there are many doctrines in Islam that foster this hate and terrorism that affects not just non Muslims but also Muslims who happen to be number one victim of this ideology then we will have more of the same

But this change has to come from Muslims themselves that would want to have nothing to do with violence and terrorism in the name of their religion and they must also come to the realization that there must be doctrines in Islam that encourage these terrorists and that these doctrines should be declard nul and void

As for enablers of Islamists and the likes of al-ikhwan and their foolish slogans as in "Islam is the religion of peace" or "Jihad means internal struggle to improve oneself" or as one recent Obama nominee has been quoted as saying back in 2010 that those that are critical of Islam are the real problem to our national security, or those the likes of Ms Chayes who suggested that freedom of speech be limited in the case of those critical of Islam all these people/groups should be exposed and marginalized

Ed Koch was a great man and he was blunt, honest and to the point but he was also annoying when he had to be. But his greatest request that he is to be buried close to a subway station so New Yorkers can come and visit him is priceless

May he RIP
