I'm sorry Dr Pipes

in response to reader comment: Similarities among the three Monotheistic Religions

But you have contradicted yourself here.

Your basic premise has long been "Islamism is the problem, moderate Islam is the solution" and this has also been firmly opposed by the overwhelming majority of your subscribers, myself included. And now you have effectively proven us correct.

You agree that Islam is a "supremacist" religion. So what is the difference then between "Islam" and "Islamism" apart from spelling? Isn't Islamism the political application of the supremacy of Muslims over the infidel by way of shariah, be it in Afghanistan or Arkansas? And isn't Islam inherently a political religion? So whats the difference?

This idea of "moderate Islam" is nothing more than political correctness and a chimera. You agree that Islam is anti-semitic and yet you argue not for the abolition of Islam but for a "moderate" form of anti-semitism as the answer? Baffling.

I'm just glad FDR didn't believe in a moderate form of Nazism or Reagan in a moderate amount of Soviet aggression as the answers to our problems.
