Reader comment on item: Intimidating the West, from Rushdie to Benedict
in response to reader comment: Daniel the "intellectual War Lord" of Bush Must reply! Intimidating the West, or Intimidating the Muslim World?

Reading through your rhetoric I see a die hard Islamist. A number of your predications rely upon misinformation. The fact is that Islam has been attacking America in greater and greater efforts for many, many years now. They have done so because America supports Israel. You know and we know it. This is not Bush's war and most American's know that too. Most people realize that we were attacked. Our buildings did not get up and fly in front of Islamic planes. Oh but I am certain you will say that our media is making up the attacks on the Towers.

As far as flushing the bible down the toilet, go ahead. The failure of your religion is that you need to act on the part of your "god". You must riot and behave badly and kill people in order to get the world's attention, to further you plans for global domination. Christianity needs no such actions. If you flush the bible, I will pray for you and try to forgive you. Your people on the other have no pity, and share no desire to have mercy on someone's soul. You would behead them in a minute, not caring at all on the eternal disposition. You must do this; you must act so, because your religion is false. A Christian will pray for someone who flushes a bible, because we care for his or her soul. We know they have committed a sin. We are tasked to love one another, even when we find it hard to. You are tasked to kill all those who oppose Islam… a religion of peace? I think not.

Further, a person speaking against Bush is considered to have a different opinion. A person who sneaks bombs into markets, and blows up innocent people is a terrorist. I would really love to know exactly what slaves Bush has. We here have laws against slavery, while Islam supports slavery. Worse Islam supports the right to kill anyone who is not Muslim. No you are not open minded, no you are not a religion of peace, no you are not a decent people. Yes you are the enemy. You are the enemy of everything that is decent and right. You spout lies and disseminate falsehoods. I can show you this is true. Were I to say this about Islam on the streets of an Islamic country I would be killed. You have the right to say what you are saying anywhere in the US. You will not be killed. You will be called a liar. You will not be well received, but you will not be killed. We have laws against you being killed. You have laws that demand I be killed, for having a different point of view and voicing it. Nice, you must be proud of all those silenced by the sword of Islam.

Mr. Pipes does not call the Newsweek story inaccurate, Newsweek does, Mr. Pipes merely points it out. Don't spread lies here, we are well read and know the difference.

Those who call the Holocaust a drama are wrong. We pity those who live under a regime that spends so much time preaching hatred.

Burning mosques? In France? Are you referring to the 2004 burning of ONE mosque? In Serbia? How can that compare to 14 churches in India, and the 30 churches in Serbia? Again, you either spew lies, or ignore the truth, or do not report the whole story. No mosques were burned in France.

The riots of MUSLIMS in France goes as follows, "November 3rd, 2005, Muslim rioters burned 315 cars. In the previous week, they torched 177 vehicles and burned numerous businesses, a post office, and two schools. They have rampaged through twenty towns and shot at police and firemen. In an episode that summed up the failure of France's efforts to create a domestic, domesticated Islam, when moderate Muslim leader Dalil Boubakeur, head of the Paris mosque, tried to restore calm, his car was pelted with stones and he had to rush away.

The riots began on October 27 when two Muslim teenagers ran from police who were checking identification papers — why they ran is as yet unclear. The police did not chase them, but evidently the teenagers thought they were being chased; they eventually hid in an electrical power sub-station, where they accidentally electrocuted themselves. That night young Muslims took to the streets for the first time, throwing rocks and bottles at police, burning cars, and vandalizing property. The next day rioters, throwing rocks, bottles, and Molotov cocktails, injured twenty-three police officers in the Paris suburb of Clichy-sous-Bois. The violence continued over the next few days: more destroyed vehicles and injured police officers."

Your distortion of these events shows me that even though a country like France caters to Islam on bended knee, making every conceivable effort to create a harmonious atmosphere (short of converting the country to Islam) that there is no chance at harmonious coexisting. The Muslim will look for any excuse to kill, rampage, or destroy the host country it infects, until it does convert to Islam.

Lastly, there are 3 million Muslims living in the US, so again all you have said is incorrect or outright lies. I am wiling to call that spade as I see it.
