Reader comment on item: [Moderate] Voices of Islam

Submitted by Ruth Lowry (United States), Sep 28, 2003 at 21:46

Dear Dr. Pipes,

How very refreshing to become aware because of your article, that there are indeed moderate voices of Islam speaking out against those fanatics who are devastating their own religion. There is risk for sure, as the Islamists still living in the 7th century are individually and groupwise determined that their way is the only way. Either agree to their way ... or else! I respect and admire those Muslims who have the guts to speak out. I hope they inspire more of their brothers and sisters to do the same. The Islamists are bullies: bullies are basically cowards. When stood up to, they back down. When their treachery is paid too little attention, they gain strength.

Your article has given me new hope that reason will prevail, and so will "good" over "evil."
