STATEMENT OF MUSLIM SUPPORT FOR PIPES APPOINTMENT TO USIP BOARD

The undersigned endorse President Bush's nomination of Daniel Pipes, to the board of the U.S. Institute of Peace.

We believe the nomination is a positive action, and urge Senate confirmation, because:

Whether one agrees or disagrees with Dr. Pipes, and some of us do strenuously disagree with aspects of his work, his views are part of the mainstream of debate on Middle East and Islamic issues, and they deserve to be heard in the USIP context.
