Based on a false premise

Reader comment on item: That Failed Philadelphia "Islamic Jew-Hatred" Bus Ad

Submitted by Patti (United States), May 27, 2015 at 08:50

Mr. Pipes, the whole thrust of what you have written is based on the false premise that some kind of user friendly "other" version of islam actually exists. Then you go on to tell people that this non existent version of islam is the solution.

We have seen that idea played out in the failed American middle east policy, repeatedly. ( i.e, sending weapons and resources to supposedly "moderate muslims" to combat jihadis), only to have our own resources turned against us. The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over, thinking that a different result will occur.

Daniel Pipes replies:

What the Obama administration considers to be moderate Islam - the Muslim Brotherhood - has nothing to do with what I am calling for.
