Ms. Kohos- Your answer (to Dr. Pipes) does not take in consideration the huge difference in paradigm change.

In regards to Your posting.

# 1: I truly do neither see the point of your criticism, nor understand why the absence of date in the pictures invalids it for exposure in this (partially silent) article.

Since you do not say why it "it shouldn't be included.", ones may wonder anything, from your private feelings towards Diana or your private unconditional support for head covering.

Understanding that since Dr. Pipes is neither writing her biography, nor the article is about her only, it comes completely un-relevant your point that "it shouldn't be included."…

# 2 and # 3 would follow similar pattern.

# 4 You say:

"…But if they sincerely wished to show respect to their Muslim hosts, then there is no issue"…"… All of the men at my son's bris wore yarmulkes in the shul, even the gentiles. I accepted it as the sincere gesture of respect that it was."…"… what are you saying with these pictures?"…

The problem I believe addressed by Dr. Pipes is the adopted paradigm by both sides (the Islamic one and the non Muslim).

To a non Muslim like you and these high profile non Muslim women, their sincerity is seen as kindness, compassion and a true aim to establish peace; But, on the other hand, to Muslims, it is seen as easy acculturation, with no need for war, or culture high pressure.

It is seen as an ease to the expansion of the cultural Jihad (a tiny slice of the great Jihad), the improvement of their self confidence to Totalitarian Muslims as successful shahids, towards the final implementation of Shariah – all over the world and the declaration of Earth as Dar Al Islam territory.There is a HUGE change in paradigm when considering their side.

So you say that gentiles wore skulls and yarmulkes…Can you answer me a question?

Were ANY of these gentiles….. a Muslim?

Your gentiles were the Jewish cover for the love and respect their nurture towards your family, very like the high profile women in the pictures, and you welcoming their support in the same Universe of values and thoughts, THIS paradigm.

Were you an islamists, the adopted paradigm/vision would have been completely diverted.

What Dr. Pipes say in these pictures (to me), the final cluster is how easily Islamist acculturation is taking place all over the world, with not a SINGLE effort done by many Muslims. These women had body guards, so they were not in fear, but as ambassadors of good aim. The discrepancy lies on that. That is the main point in all these pictures: the Discrepancy- The change in values/ vision and cultural paradigm.

See Below a memorable statement of CAIR in America:

1 Ibrahim Hooper

CAIR Spokesperson
Former Employee Islamic Association for Palestine (IAP)

"CAIR does not support these groups publicly."
(Hooper comments on CAIR's record of supporting Hamas,
Hezbollah and other official terrorist groups)

"I wouldn't want to create the impression that I wouldn't like the government of
the United States to be Islamic sometime in the future"…

"…But I'm not going to do anything violent to promote that. I'm going to do it through education."
