The goal of militant Islam

Reader comment on item: Militant Islam Is Put In Class With Communism, Fascism

Submitted by Jamil (United States), Oct 8, 2002 at 20:02

First of all, there is no such thing as militant Islam. Just because a few Muslims are not the cream-of-the-crop does NOT mean that all Muslims are bad. When a Christian, Jew, Buddhist, Hind, or anybody else does something wrong you do not say "Militant Christianity, Militant Judaism, and so on so forth." Also, the goal of Muslims is not to take power. If you have ever read history books, you would have found out that when Muslims ruled different parts of the world, ALL other religions were respected and Islam was not forced upon anybody. Nobody was persecuted because they would not accept Islam. Please tell the truth.

Daniel Pipes replies:

"The goal of Muslims is not to take power." For another view, see my In the Path of God: Islam and Political Power (New Brunswick, N.J.: Transaction, 2002), http://www.danielpipes.org/books/path.shtml, which tells at length about the Muslim drive for power.
