Thanks "dhimmi no more" for pointing out that issue.

Dr Pipes seems to worry about controling politically and educationally Madrassas funded by tax payers. Other Madrassas are OK!! I do not understand. If the worry is to prevent extremist generations from developing, then tackling only tax funded Madrassas unveils that Dr Pipes`worry is something other than preventing extremism. It becomes clear that Dr Pipes`s worry is money or those who pay money. Therefore, not minding as much other Madrassas is the best proof; at least untill proven otherwise by Dr Pipes. What is the record of Dr Pipes in dealing with privately funded Madrassas! this remains an interesting question to ask.

I have written extensively on privately funded Islamic schools - What Are Islamic Schools Teaching? is the central article - but that is a quite different subject from takpayer-funded schools.
