Debanjan, you left out the first part of the sentence:

"The immense resources of the United States should be dedicated, rather, to two goals: reduce human suffering with blankets and soup and prevent..."

Not sure I remember the last time ISIS went around passing out blankets and soup, so it's difficult to see this statement as calling for the support of ISIS. Also, just because our previous US President allowed US arms to flow to ISIS doesn't mean Dr. Pipes' or anyone else's desire to aid other Sunni groups equates to calling for the support of ISIS. Also not sure why any of this needs explaining.

"Dr. Pipes personally supported the creation of these groups like IS to checkmate Iran and it was these support that encouraged IS to did those wrongs against Christians."

Thanks, Debanjan, now I finally understand why ISIS murdered and enslaved Christians. That was such a mystery to me. Nothing to do with Koran 60:4 or 8:39. Nothing to do with Sahih Muslim 3371. Nothing to do with the doctrine of loyalty and enmity or the Islamic State's stating that "We hate you, first and foremost, because you are disbelievers." No, it's all explained by Dr. Pipes' personal support and encouragement. Perhaps it was Dr. Pipes personal support and encouragement that caused the Armenian genocide, too.

Submitting....
