Truth may sound bitter but somebody has to say it

Reader comment on item: Maher Hawash: The Terrorist Next Door

Submitted by Jamal Hasan (United States), Aug 19, 2003 at 15:54

Dr. Pipes' excellent commentary showed once again an American success story of putting a terrorist behind bars - the place where he belongs. If some of the 19 Arab suicide bombers had been under surveillance, 9/11 would not have occurred. As a fall out, thousands of illegal Muslims doing menial jobs did not have to flee USA, immigration rules would have not been tightened. The ultimate victims became the average Muslims who are not terrorists. But this terrorist's Intel colleagues were making the same mistake once again - throwing blanket support to a criminal because someone belongs to the same religion. What a shame! When will Muslims would come out of this Ummatic brotherly mindset? Who knows!

Dr. Pipes spoke the truth and truth definitely is hurtful to some people who are still living in the fool's paradise.
