Reader comment on item: Jihad: The Fight Over Meaning

Briefly, Iagree with precisely what you are saying, Mr. Pipes. The Islamic movement is one of deceit... and mayhem. ... They will use democratic methods to instill a theocratic state. Their reliance on classic anti-semitism merely reflects their banality. But, they do understand that it will work to their advantage. and, if that fails, they will use overwhelming numbers to enslave those who do not believe in their theology. This is what the nazis and communists did. America and the Western democracies better soon wake up. For the Jews, it is already much too late. At least, the Israelis will never allow themselves to be buried at Buchenwald. Somehow, the American Jewish Community thinks it will be spared because of its liberality(influence), money, assimiliation, and purpose. If that were the case, Europe's Jews would have survived.

Thank you, and I think you have probably one of the finest perspectives; though I am a tad biased, on this subject....

Finally, I know many today are delving into the conspiratorial nature of our intelligence failure surrounding 911. But, I am curious. Do you believe that our government allowed Osama bin Laden to escape unscathed for no further attacks upon our soil and the saudi oil fields. In exchange, we agreed we would not strike Mecca and Medina, which should now be precisely our strategy. A number of my acquaintances have proposed that he may actually now be in saudi in an effort by the saudi royal family to save their dynasty. James Davis feels that this may be true and that they have a very short reign left because of the amount of empathy on the arabian penisula for the fundamentalist sheiks, mullahs, and taliban.

Again, thank you for challenging these very intimidating and self-righteous persons.
Submitting....
