Reader comment on item: Militant Islam's New Strongholds

Submitted by Lisa (United States), Oct 22, 2002 at 13:08

Mr. Pipes...excellent article!!

I read as many books, articles, etc. as I can on the Middle East to learn about Arabs, Muslims and Iislamists.

I'm wondering if there is really a difference between the "average muslim" and the islamists? If they all live their lives by the qu'ran how much of a difference is there? I can't help but feel that the vast majority of Muslims do in fact feel (but may not put into practice) the way the Islamists feel. The number of Muslims in the world today is growing at a tremendous rate and is not confined to the Middle East. As a result we see atrocities commited in many different countries in the name of Allah.

How does one fight a war against a people who are not a nation but rather a religion based in so many countries?
