'Islam is not the enemy, but Islamism is,'...Well done ,Mr. Pipes ...but I believe islam is a cult (and everything after that ! ) ,not a religion .It's an enemy against reason !


I wrote in this board and others for quite a while that Wahabbis and Salafis must be labeled as cults and to deal with accordingly. Labeling Islam as a cult at this stage is probably hard to sell to the public unless another attack similar or larger than 911 is to be carried out.

Wahabbist ideology fit the cult's definition and this is the first step to start. We need to start somewhere and have to consult with brilliant and knowledgeable law experts. Any proposal to Congress should be free of emotion but facts and real examples.

Islamo fascists hate any negative news that explain who they are and what they stand for. And if we fail this time, will try again. As a matter of fact any publicity that explains this ideology is a plus.

Remember that the followers of this ideology are probably going to make our task easier.
