I have read your response and with great interest and I commend you for stating your personal beliefs, in the eloquent manner for which you have stated them. Your comments are truly sufficient, revealing and show a side of Islam which I have seen, over the decades, as something that would continue to bring me to Mosque, because wherever there is love, Mercy Compassion for others, like what I used to see, repeatedly, in a most infamous Muslim in the 60's, Malcolm X, would always offer me the human side of a belief system, that would demonstrate this kind of compassion and understanding towards ones fellow man. I saw this practice within Malcolm X when most if not all of white America were terrified of his belief to stand against an injustice based on racism. I am against racists and racism, so I would not promulgate that belief system.

Over the decades, I have seen great hatred and trepidation coming from Mosques, from adherents to Islam who wish to promulgate a tremendous hatred for all of America, Blacks who are either Christian or who are not practicing Christians but who are non muslim, and who are being prostylized to all the time from muslims hell bent on showing racial intolerance.

I can tell you also, that I have had times, when I was pursued by other Americans, hell bent on taking my life. Within my confines of my muslim outreach, which literally spans decades, I have had them surround a stalker, or a person who meant me harm, and they prevented them from doing so, by refusing to prevent them from pursuing me, and allowing me ample time to get away.

I perceive injustice and I am there to stand against it. I loath it when it blocks the rights of others, so, in a sense, many perceive me to be muslim, or tell me to become muslim because as they say, I already am.

I am a Jew. I practice and follow Judaism. I strive to the higher self and have always done so, since the time I was a child. It has always been present in me.

I endorse Dr. Pipes because he grounds me. In a world where radicalized Islam, who promotes the subjugation of others, and prevention of them practicing their chosen religion, or who prevents others from speaking out, against the radicalized version of Islam, like what my mentor, Malcom X taught me, inadvertantly, eventually led me to the forefront of aberrant psychology, and the affected personality.

What you see, in the response of others, is fear, terror, and an understandably moral outrage, against Islamic aggression, taquiya and the bastardization of the religion. At times, even I respond in similar fashion, specifically when I see literally thousands, millions of muslims slaughtering innocents all over the world. This is an injustice, and no religion or people should promulgate the slaughter of innocents not even within the muslim communities or Nations.

Those who show a willingness to slaughter, must be slaughtered, and those who wish to live in peace should be left to do so. Where there is corruption, there is the aberrant mind. The affected personality.

It is hypocrisy of the first degree to address corruption in others, and not see the cancer festering in ones self. All of us, no matter what religion or walk in life, must be able to bring ourselves into submission between Him, and of course, our own motives and examination of the self is always in order and necessary.

Overall, I truly liked your comment as it touched me deeply.
