Reader comment on item: Jihad: The Fight Over Meaning

I love it. And even though you might object? (inquisitive look) I thank God for you. We need someone to speak the truth. Yes everyone has the right to say what they want but blatant lies backed up by organizations is darkness. Everyone is so afraid of being viewed as "intolerant" that no one is seeking the truth. Truth doesn't seem to matter any more as long as we all comply, and that's dangerous. Because there IS evil out there laughing as we remain silent sheep, picked off one by one, afraid to shout "WOLF!" Evil comes in many packages, it's not all Muslims, it's not all Jews, or Vikings (my heritage) or whatever Daniel Pipes is (what IS he anyway?) But I say we take an honest look at the BELIEFS and if those BELIEFS instruct people to kill all unbelievers, and wolves of whatever breed are doing just that, I think it's incredibly STUPID to stand there and say, "Oh, I don't want anyone to think me intolerant, so go ahead, kill my neighbors, slaughter my friends, suicide bomb us, just don't call us intolerant." That's what is truly sick, it's fear of being criticized to stand up for your beliefs. All the Revolutionary War heros stood up for their beliefs. Why is it that today we are told to shut up and sit down, it's not the popular/politically correct thing to do. That is not the gentleness of Jesus. That's pure cowardice. It is not the stuff that great men are made of. Daniel, keep on going, you're making such a difference! Thank you so much!
