Embracing Insurgents

Reader comment on item: In Defense of Europe's So-called Far Right

Submitted by Stephen H. Chopek (United States), Jan 19, 2015 at 13:43

Daniel - I read your article - defending the far right in Europe; however, I was bit confused about one comment you made. You say the insurgents are coming (like it or not) and we should embrace them ? We should embrace violent terrorist tactics. Do the insurgents understand Democracy ? and tolerance of other religions and people.May I make a suggestion - please read Aymenn Jawad article; Aspects of a Islamic State and read about how ISIS is destroying school sources in Democracy, Political Science and Liberal Arts.

Please let me know what you think!

Warm Regards.

Daniel Pipes replies:

I had used the word "insurgent" earlier in the column to describe the so-called far right and that's who I was referring to in the passage that confused you.
