Reader comment on item: My Disrupted Talk at the University of California-Irvine

Submitted by Jim Murphy (United States), Feb 5, 2007 at 18:43

Mr. Pipes,

your UCI lecture became not only a most enlightening educational opportunity, but an evening which will no doubt affect us profoundly the remainder of our lives. But before getting into specifics, may we first express our great admiration for your courage and most excellent efforts in trying to awaken those in democratic countries of the world to what who knows how many Muslims have in mind for infidels.

As it happens, just on the day before, I had finished Brigitte Gabriel's new book. And despite having traveled often and extensively throughout Europe, including the Eastern countries, we have never experienced anything like what she describes therein, although we certainly have seen the demographics impacts cited by Mark Steyn. So to literally be subjected directly to such hate, based upon religion, and although we are infidels but not Jewish, I am now dedicated to becoming active is some capacity to ensure the preservation of Israel, and I guess literally the survival of Western Civilization.

And in this regard, were not my inquiry seemingly too complicated for the question and answer session, I would have asked you:

Is it not true that the Dems takeover of both houses of Congress made 11/7 Islam's biggest victory day against "The Big Satan" since 9/11, and if so, is not America now safe from major attack, distinguishing such things as the vehicle assaults as in San Francisco and Seattle and on the campus as you mentioned, until after our next Presidential election, lest national security sentiment go even more significantly against the Dems and enhance the prospects of the Republican candidate. But is it then not irresponsible to not anticipate that if any Dem were to be elected, that a potentially cataclysmic attack would occur promptly after the Dem Pres had "cleaned house" of aggressively minded national security personnel holding positions of power in the current administration and our military?

Let's see how the Democrats act, now that they have the responsibility of power, and then judge.
