Reader comment on item: A Madrasa Grows in Brooklyn
in response to reader comment: Know Thine Enemy

I find some of your comments positively dangerous. Why worry you say? You claim (rightly) that any intelligent well read westerner would not/could not be wooed by radical Islam. Of course you are correct in that. How many of the suicide bombers have read Eli Shoubry's book, or would understand it if they had?

We are not talking about westerners, we are talking about radical Islamic extremists. We are talking, or we should be talking, about people who are prepared themselves to die in the process of killing as many of us as they can. A sure road to paradise they are taught. Many of these are now second and third generation 'westerners'; yet still cling to their 'ideals' only today we learn that Sharia courts are operating in most major British cities, and I have no doubt in American, and European cities as well. That is their brand of tolerance. Ouir brand will not cut it. Still let us not worry about it. Sorry, we should be afraid; very afraid.
