Islam and violence

Reader comment on item: Islamism's Trajectory

Dr. Pipes

I wish that you are right. But I do disagree with you

There is no doubt that there are doctrines in Islam that call for violence murder and holy war and it is up to Muslims to debate them and get rid of them once and for all but as long as these doctrines exit then there is no hope that Islam will ever be a religion of peace not now and not in the future

I do believe that what we can learn from the study of history is that what goes up must come down and that Islamic terrorism has peaked and many Muslims are rejecting it and those that represent it and case in point was the June 30 /2013 uprising in Egypt. Most Egyptian Muslims made it very clear that they reject the MB and their terrorism but not Islam

So what should our policy makers do? the only thing they can do is to support any rejection as in the case of Egypt of the likes of the MB and to not to support Jihadis in Syria and expose them as killers and criminals and no more
