Another Difference

Reader comment on item: When Conservatives Argue about Islam

Submitted by Edward Halper (United States), Jul 6, 2007 at 08:46

You might have discussed here your differences with Robert Spencer who places Islam itself at the root of Islamism and is unwilling to countenance the possibility of truly moderate Muslims, like those at the the Center on Islamic Pluralism. Or am I misunderstanding you? Muravchik and Gershman agree with you in principle, but differ in what counts as moderate (by the way, I think you are right), but Spencer disagrees in principle and that might be a harder gap to bridge.
