A Democrat for Pipes

Reader comment on item: On Being Borked

Submitted by Lawrence Winans (United States), Aug 26, 2003 at 08:25

It is with considerable pleasure that I learned of Daniel Pipes' appointment to the Institute of Peace, I only wish the appointment could have been to a more prominent policymaking position within the government.

I only regret as a Democrat, is that Democrats led the opposition to his appointment.

I attribute this to an excess of tolerance on the part of liberals today who somehow believe that tolerating those who would kill us is a mark of an open-minded person. Mr Pipes has been unfairly attacked as Anti-Muslim; having read many of his writings, I know that it is not true. In another era this sort of addled thinking would have lambasted antiNazism as being intolerant of German people.

The Islamists are todays Nazis.

I remain a Democrat for Pipes.
