Whom to believe ? Pipes or ADL ?

Reader comment on item: A Madrasa Grows in Brooklyn

Submitted by Gershon Goldsteen (Australia), May 26, 2007 at 22:58

Dear Dr. Pipes

I read most of the comments under the heading "The Travails of Brooklyn's Arabic Academy". Most of those I read did not deal with the proposed school but with the threat of Islam. In that regard I support all those who warned us (I did not read any of the comments in this blog). I then turned to the link to the ADL letter and was surprised that their opinion, based on a long experience with Ms. Almontaser and what she stands for, is in direct contradiction of what you wrote about her and her plans for the school. I have read many of your articles over the years and have come to respect you, however I also respect the ADL. So whom can I believe ?

Yours Faithfully from way down under (I live in Tasmania)

Daniel Pipes replies:

Believe whom you wish, but I raised a number of abstract and specific issues that the ADL did not deal with. They remain out there, unanswered.
